Michelle Trachtenberg, one of the stars of Gossip Girls, might be the most awesome chicks on the face of the Earth. I love her with all of my heart and I have never met her, but since I think we should see more of her I have highlighted a few points to let y’all know just how awesome she is. Here are somethings you should know straight from the mouth of Michelle Trachtenberg. 

‘I once dated a guy who was like, ‘Holy shit, I just made out with Harriet the Spy!’ And that’s messed up. Don’t say that. I was 10, you’re 30, it’s just weird.’

‘I feel like there’s a phase guys go through in their early twenties when they’re supposed to hook up with a lot of chicks and break a lot of hearts. That’s great, I’d just like to catch you after that. I’m not looking to settle down and make babies, I’m just not looking for the guy who’s texting seven different girls like, ‘Let’s screw here.

‘When I was in elementary school, this one girl threw me down a flight of stairs, fractured my ribs, punched and fractured my nose, and told the principal I used the word ‘bitch’ and got me [sent to] detention—the only time I’ve ever been thrown in detention in my life. When I was in junior high school, there was a whole gang of girls who would push me into lockers and steal my clothes after gym, so I wouldn’t have anything to wear.’

‘No Facebook. No…what’s the Twit thing? I can’t. There are tons of fake Facebook pages and it drives me apeshit. Some of these fake Twitters and Facebooks, they’re like, ‘I’m so special! Look at my new movie! Don’t you think I’m so pretty?’ I never, ever talk like that.’

‘ It would take an army—or Martin Scorsese—to ever get me naked again. I am very aware of screen caps. [Laughs.]’
