Taking care of her to-do list, Leighton Meester showed up an office building in the Manhattan borough of New York City today (October 3).

Sporting a tan jacket along with a white, black, and red dress, the “Gossip Girl” star seemed to be in good spirits as she chatted with some folks outside.

Of her new film “The Oranges,” Leighton told press she really enjoyed the departure from her normal routine.

"It's a complete 180-degree turn from anything I've ever done. This fulfills something within myself that I could never find in my series [Gossip Girl]."

As for her on-screen chemistry with “House” hunk Hugh Laurie, Meester mentioned, "The love that Hugh and I portray is not some sort of physical infatuation. It really comes across as a relationship that has respect and a real rapport. And that was easy with Hugh. He's someone I've known and I genuinely could fall in love with."
