Gossip Girl couldn’t guarantee a glimpse into “the scandalous life of Manhattan’s elite” if it didn’t invite Hollywood’s A-list to take part.
After all, Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) is basically an heiress, while Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) comes from a family of wealth and notoriety. So it only makes sense for the two best friends and their equally good classmates to rub against the rich and famous.
And during the six glorious seasons of Gossip Girl, there was an impressive amount of pussycat with actresses, designers, musicians, and even some political figures. Rachel Zoe, Lady Gaga and Rachel Bilson are just a few of the stars who performed, but over 50 have secured their place in the Gossip Girl universe.
Now fans are hoping that the upcoming HBO Max reboot will have as many famous faces and maybe even some familiar ones – we’re looking at you Blake and Leighton.
