“Gossip Girl” Star Leighton Meester Called Poutine “Gravy Fries” & Fans Can’t Handle It

Anyone who's ever watched Gossip Girl will very quickly tell you all about their favourite character on the show. Some people love Serena and her fun, party girl personality, while others gravitate towards Chuck because of his bad guy turned prince charming attitude. Yet another GG character that fans love is none other than the queen bee herself, Blair Waldorf. If there was one thing Waldorf knows how to do in life, it's how to get exactly what she wants, no matter the cost. Although she took on the role of Waldorf in the hit series, actress Leighton Meester is definitely a lot different from her former on-screen persona in real life. Leighton Meester's visit to Canada involved plenty of delicious poutine.

If you follow the Gossip Girl alum on Instagram, you may have seen her latest post from yesterday afternoon. The actress is sitting at a picnic table outside a massive trailer, munching on a light snack of poutine. In true Blair Waldorf fashion, Meester captioned the photo, "Xoxo, gravy fries". She also added a location tag of Canada to the photo, which just so happens to be the home country of the ever delicious "gravy fries" Meester is enjoying.

Some of Meester's famous friends had to save her from the faux pas by reminding her that the name is actually "poutine", which she'll quickly have to learn if she's going to be spending a lot of time here in Canada!

Meester's Gossip Girl days may be long over, but don't worry, she's still staying booked and busy. The actresses' latest project is a show called Single Parents, which is about a support group for single parents as they navigate the struggles of parenting and building new relationships.

Back in September, Meester sat down with ET Canada and her co-star Taran Killam, who just so happens to be married to Canadian actress Cobie Smulders. The pair started talking about all the wonderful things that Canada has to offer, and it seems that the consensus was that poutine is #1 on the list.

Of course, ET Canada also had to ask if Meester planned on getting involved in the Gossip Girl reboot, although she didn't give a totally clear answer. Looks like we'll just have to wait and see if Blair Waldorf is making a comeback, but if she isn't at least we'll still have Single Parents.
