The 25-year-old actress got to star alongside Gwyneth in Country Strong and said that the experience made her even more of a fan.
“I’ve always loved her. I’ve always looked up to her and I loved working with her,” Leighton said.
“She’s a real pro. It was zero degrees outside and she was like, ‘Whatever. It’s fine.’
“She’s down-to-earth and has a great sense of humor. She’s a real girl — beautiful and a great singer and actress. Actually, maybe I hate her!”
