American actress and singer Leighton Meester photographed by Tesh for the cover shoot of the women’s magazine Marie Claire US for the April 2012 issue.
The 25-year-old actress, wearing a Reed Krakoff dress, dished on her family life and relationships. Check it:
On her family life growing up: “My family has a crazy history. Probably the craziest I’ve heard of….I look back now and I see it in a nice light. It wasn’t uncomplicated. But I played outside. I went to the beach. There were happy, fun times.”
On having “adult” concerns as a kid: “I couldn’t relate to kid stuff. ‘Jimmy doesn’t like me!’ Who cares? I was worried we didn’t have gas money or food. Those were my concerns.”
On relationships: “I never had a boyfriend until I was 18. It’s nice, I guess – when you like them. But it isn’t the most important thing. I’m not sure I ever want to get married. The only time a relationship is good is when you really love them. I don’t want to hang out with some guy I just like.”
