LM never seemed to share too many qualities with her UES alter ego, unfortunately. While Blair would rather spend an afternoon combing Bergdorfs, Leighton preferred to lounge with her guitar and craft songs for her debut album, Heartstrings, which didn’t become the hit she’d hoped despite her sweet melodies and fab voice.
Her film career has been equally low key–in 2014 she starred in two indie films, Like Sunday, Like Rain and Life Partners, but she’ll be back on the small screen this fall in Fox’s new comedy, Making History.
Off camera, L has found a Bass-worthy love…without all the drama. She wed The OC star Adam Brody and welcomed daughter Arlo. Hopefully she’s still rocking the occasional headband though…
