Leighton Meester covers Harper's Bazaar; denies sex tape

Leighton Meester graces the cover of Harper Bazaar's September issue, wearing Derek Lam.

As part of the magazine's "Fabulous at Every Age" feature, the Gossip Girl star embodies different age groups (with the help of PhotoShop), ranging from her 20's to her 50's (see the photos below.)

In the interview, the 23-year-old addresses her sex tape controversy. “[The tape] is not real, so it makes me sort of sad. It’s unfortunate that it got carried as far as it did… I definitely understand the nature of people better now and that the mere allegation of something like that could be headline news. People think it’s real because somebody says it is.”

Other highlights include:

The pitfalls of fame:
“I don’t want most of what comes along with all of this. I’m doing everything I can to keep things separate. I feel like my friends are in a cult because we’re like, No outsiders! I’ve never been crazy. I’m a very good girl, to be honest. I don’t do anything to hurt anybody. Honestly, all I ever do is work.”

Aging and botox:
“Any fear of aging, I think, is simply vanity because what comes with age is so many wonderful things: wisdom, understanding. Every year, I’m always happy to be done with the previous age. If people want [to get Botox], do it.”

Ed Westwick meeting Meester for the first time:
“The first thing I thought when I met Leighton was, F—ing hell, this girl’s gorgeous. And she was incredibly sweet. Now we tell each other to f— off whenever we want to.”

The September issue of Harper's Bazaar hits newsstands August 18th. For the full interview, click here.
