As Blair Waldorf on Gossip Girl, Leighton Meester is more likely to be found wearing a cute prom-style dress than a flesh-baring outfit.

But in her personal life, the same cannot be said, as the 26-year-old actress proved when she sported a miniscule bra top and sexy pair of hotpants in the pages of Britain’s Cosmopolitan magazine.

However, while Leighton looks sleek and glamorous in the photographs, she admits in the accompanying interview that she prefers to dress down and go casual on her time away from the spotlight.

She said: ‘I don’t care if there are a million pictures of me with no makeup. I love being able to walk down the street without it.

‘We should promote women not having to wear makeup, or at least feel we can go out without it.’

Leighton added that while there are things she would like to change about her appearance, she tries to accept how she looks as much as possible.

She said: ‘I wish I was stronger and more flexible. But I can always say, “I’d love my body if my legs were thinner, I’d love my hair if it were thicker.”

‘You can do things to change the way you look, but it’s good to just say, “I love myself in this moment.”… As soon as you stop getting pimples, you start getting wrinkles, so what’s there to be upset about?’

Despite looking stylish in the Cosmopolitan shoot, Leighton also admitted that she couldn’t be any more unlike her Gossip Girl alter-ego, fashionista Blair.

She said: ‘I’ve never seen Blair with the same bag, coat or shoes twice. I don’t know anyone who had that. I had two pairs of jeans when I was a teenager that I rotated.

‘I wouldn’t trust myself with a Prada bag! I didn’t even want to change for gym so I’d wear sweatpants over my jeans, then sweat around the track for an hour.’

Leighton also spoke to the magazine about the upcoming end of Gossip Girl, after running for six seasons, saying that while she will be sad to see it come to an end, she is looking forward to getting stuck into other projects.

She said: ‘It’s good that we’re going out on a high note, but I’m ready to move on. It’ll probably be a challenge, for a time, to fight against that character – I won’t play an overprivileged girl any time soon! But I’ll never forget Gossip Girl.’
