Who are the best characters to ever exist on TV? If you're coming up with a list in your head and you didn't include Blair Waldorf then you should be ashamed. Everybody knows that Queen B is the best! She was clearly the star of Gossip Girl because she was better than hot mess Serena van der Woodsen. And Leighton Meester is cool too! She's married to Adam Brody (even though he'll always be Seth Cohen to me) and is settling into life as a mom. Here are some crazy facts that everybody should know about Leighton!

1. Leighton had to dye her naturally blonde hair brunette just to audition for Gossip Girl. Good thing it worked out!
