(Newser) – Leighton Meester says an alleged sex tape making the rounds is a phony. “It’s not real, so it makes me sort of sad,” the Gossip Girl actress tells Harper's Bazaar. “It's unfortunate that it got carried as far as it did. I definitely understand the nature of people better now and that the mere allegation of something like that could be headline news. People think it's real because somebody says it is."

Meester adds she doesn't "want most of what comes along" with her fame. "I'm doing everything I can to keep things separate. I feel like my friends are in a cult because we're like, No outsiders! I've never been crazy. I'm a very good girl, to be honest. I don't do anything to hurt anybody. Honestly, all I ever do is work."
