Leighton Meester Has Only Had One Crushing Breakup

“I’ve never really liked anybody before. Even when I would date guys, it would sort of be on the surface and it was always a relief when we broke up. … I’ve only had one experience where it was really hard and I was really sad when it ended, but that’s what taught me a lot about myself and love and life – and that’s good.”

Leighton Meester of “Gossip Girl” and the upcoming “Country Strong” talks to Seventeen about her breakup experiences. She says that only one—her split from co-star Sebastian Stan—really affected her. Can this be true, or is Leighton gilding the lily? Isn’t heartbreak one of the universal lowest common denominators? [People]
