Leighton Meester April 2012 Marie Claire

Actress Leighton Meester covers the April 2012 issue of Marie Claire. In the interview, Leighton talks about growing up poor and worrying more about money for food and gas than whether or not some boy was interested in her.

On Growing Up Poor: "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 Being Loved: "You can take what is handed to you and use it as an excuse to mess up. But I've always handled what was given to me by life. I consider myself lucky. I was never lied to. And I was loved."

On Her Youth in Marco Island, Florida: "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."

You can see Leighton's cover shoot here. Here is a behind the scenes video of the cover shoot:

She works hard and plays hard and that's what makes her performance on the KCA's one to look forward to."
