They may feud like crazy on Gossip Girl, but off-screen, there is no (old) 90210-style drama between co-stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester.
"I've never really had a competitive relationship in any work situation," she says in the December issue of W, which features her on the cover.
"The media is always trying to pit us against one another, I guess because it's just not interesting to say, 'Everyone gets along; everybody just works 18-hour days and goes home to sleep.' That's not fun to read, I guess."
Besides, she says, the cast is too busy to bicker. Blake Lively says the Gossip Girl cast must chew through a 55-page script every eight days.
"You get used to it. I can read a four-page scene once and have it memorized," she says. "It's a skill you learn in school: disposable cramming. We're flying by the seat of our pants a lot of times, which is why I enjoy doing films. It's a change of pace."
