In her first time out as a magazine cover girl, Meester talks about her hit show -- and speculates about the identity of the enigmatic Gossip Girl blogger. "I have my suspicions," she says. "If I had to guess, I was thinking it could be Chuck. He seems just evil enough to say those things."
As for her role on the series, queen bee Blair Waldorf, Meester says she's increasingly coming to relate to her character. "I feel like I'm becoming more like her and she's becoming more like me. She's young and vulnerable, but also smart and feisty."
