In addition to being one of the most gorgeous girls on the planet, Jessica Szohr is also a very talented actress. The former Gossip Girl star is appearing in a hilarious new romantic comedy called Two Night Stand. Trust us, you’re going to want to see this movie!

As if Jessica’s life couldn’t get any better, she’s also BFFs with Taylor Swift! Examples HERE and HERE. So, we had to ask Jessica what she thought of TSwift’s new music! What did Jessica say? Find out in the interview below!

Jessica’s new movie, Two Night Stand, follows a girl named Megan (Analeigh Tipton) as she tries to get back into the dating game. Megan’s roommate Faiza (Jessica) encourages Megan to try online dating to find a hookup, which leads to her meeting Alec (Miles Teller). The two spend the night together, but then the one-night stand turns into a multiple-day stand after a snowstorm traps them in Alec’s apartment.

When we asked Jessica what attracted her to do this movie she said, “When I first read it it was very different from most screenplays or scripts that I’ve read. It was very much like a play. It’s kind of based on four characters, there’s not a lot of locations. It’s a love story but there’s a lot of relatable things, like people just getting out of college and figuring out what they want to do with their lives. Do they like this or that? So I fell in love with just the writing and the dialogue was so, sometimes you read a script and it’s so, it doesn’t sound like something human beings would or people say, which kind of throws you. But this was very much right on and when I met with (Director) Max (Nichols) and he was amazing and his vision was awesome, and then when Miles signed on and Kid (Cudi) I was just like, ‘I’m doing this!'”

Fun fact, Jessica first auditioned for another role in the movie! Jessica revealed to us, “It’s funny, what no one really knows is that I was actually like going in and in for the Megan role, which is what Analeigh plays. And they’re like, ‘We’re going here, but we would like you to play Faiza.’ And I’m like, ‘I want to be a part of this, so I’m going to do it.'”

This movie has an amazing cast, so did they have a fun time filming together? Jessica told us, “We had a blast, it was in New York. The other whole ironic thing about this is that Hurricane Sandy hit while we were filming. So our production got shutdown, for a movie about the city getting shutdown!” Wow!

While Jessica got stuck with her cast during filming, Jessica told us that if she had to pick one person to get stuck with for multiple days it would be her mom!

For those of you that might not know, Jessica appears in Taylor Swift’s “22” music video. We told Jessica we love the video and asked her if she’s heard any of Taylor’s new music? Jessica revealed, “I’ve heard a lot of it. I mean she is so gifted and talented and they’re all like above and beyond. So yeah I felt like when her song (“Shake It Off”) came out I didn’t know if people were going to respond because they were loving her country so much. But I’m like she’s so talented and it’s so good and so catchy and I love the video, so I’m glad that people responded well, she deserve that. And I think it’s good to change it up, shake it up, you know what I mean?” Yes! We love that Taylor is experimenting with her sound!

We’re hoping Jessica makes an appearance in another Taylor video, but in the meantime you can check out Jessica in Two Night Stand when the movie premieres on Sept. 26!
