As Meester says in the new issue of PorterEdit, in Manhattan, "I went to school with people who at a really young age felt like they knew what they wanted to do and they were pursuing it".

And Leighton Meester has since revealed that she will never revive her role as the privileged teen, while admitting that Gossip Girl was an "unhealthy environment" during an interview with PorterEdit.

"I'm not haunted by that time, but it's been interesting and helpful for me to look at it and examine it as an adult and go, "I don't know if it was the healthiest environment". "A lot more people were suddenly around and I was being looked at".

For six seasons, from 2007 to 2012, the 32-year-old actress played Upper East Side socialite Blair Waldorf on the popular CW series (adapted from Cecily von Ziegesar's novels). "If you don't have the right perspective, you could definitely be confused by people being that nice to you or judging you for behavior that's typical of a 20, 21 year old... making mistakes but having to make them very publicly".

However despite her struggles with growing up in the spotlight Leighton admitted that it was still a "special time", which was filled with challenges from all aspects of life.

She continued that her journey throughout her twenties was sped up due to the success of Gossip Girl, while she was still trying to figure out who she was. But I wouldn't trade it for anything. "A lot of the questions that come from it are 'Do you miss it?' Did you love what you wore?' she explained to Porter Edit magazine. It's sort of a time capsule", she says of the show, which recently celebrated its 10th anniversary. I had to figure it out quickly and with not a completely developed mind to discern between what's real and what's not, who I can trust and who I can't. "And I think that's one of the many wonderful parts of not only having a child and meeting your soul-mate [Adam Brody], but also I feel very lucky career-wise - really in a place I want to be".

She said that she wouldn't change it for the world, but relates it to a high school experience that she wouldn't want to return to. "I'm happy where I am now", she concluded.
