Leighton Meester steps out of her Gossip Girl shoes for a brand new role in the upcoming film The Oranges.
In this upcoming comedy/drama film, Leighton plays the role of Nina – a 24-year-old who becomes involved with her father’s best friend (played by Hugh Laurie).
According to ComingSoon.Net:
“David and Paige Walling (Hugh Laurie, Catherine Keener) and Terry and Cathy Ostroff (Oliver Platt, Allison Janney) are best friends and neighbors living on Orange Drive in suburban New Jersey. Their comfortable existence goes awry when prodigal daughter Nina Ostroff (Leighton Meester), newly broken up with her fiancé Ethan (Sam Rosen), returns home for Thanksgiving after a five-year absence. Rather than developing an interest in the successful son of her neighbors, Toby Walling (Adam Brody), which would please both families, it’s her parents’ best friend David who captures Nina’s attention.
When the connection between Nina and David becomes undeniable, everyone’s lives are thrown into upheaval, particularly Vanessa Walling’s (Alia Shawkat), Nina’s childhood best friend. It’s not long before the ramifications of the affair begin to work on all of the family members in unexpected and hilarious ways, leading everyone to reawaken to their lives, reassess what it means to be happy, and realize that sometimes what looks like a disaster turns out to be the thing we need.”

Gossip Girl beauty has finally won her court case against her mother, over a dispute about where funds Leighton had been sending home had been used.
Last July, Leighton opened a case asking the court to allow her to not have to give her mother any money. Leighton had reportedly been sending $7500 home each month to cover her ill brother’s medical bills and later found out that her mother had been taking the money to use for her own personal gains such as botox and hair extensions.
Leighton’s mother then proceeded to try and convince the court that Leighton’s money was meant for her instead of her son, which resulted in Leighton winning the case.
The star isn’t suing her mother for the misuse of funds, however now that the case is over Leighton will not be required to make any payments to her mother ever again.
