Taylor Momsen Is Smoking…No, Literally, She’s Smoking Cigarettes

Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen was spotted smoking on the set while filming in New York on Monday. What’s the big deal? She’s only 17, a year younger than the legal purchasing age.

She was on set with Matthew Settle, who plays her dad on the show. Momsen’s character has been missing in action for the series’ fourth season thus far, but will make a return in the episode airing Oct. 25.

She decided to take time off from the show to tour with her band, The Pretty Reckless.

As a result of that, the actress has transformed her image from sweet, innocent girl to the bottom of an ash tray.
