'The Roommate': Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly are THE SAME PERSON or in love or something

Posted on

Oh my holy god, people, the first trailer for The Roommate is finally here and it looks BANANAS. So Leighton Meester is a crazy college girl who becomes obsessed with her roommate, played by Minka Kelly. Now, we’ve all been obsessed with Minka Kelly, but Crazy Leighton takes it to a whole new crazy level. She sets a dude on fire, tears out naked-Alyson Michalka’s belly button ring, has sex with another dude and totally Basic Instincts him, I think makes out with another girl, and…you know, College!

I’ve watched Friday Night Lights and Gossip Girl, but never realized before that Kelly and Meester look almost exactly alike. And by exactly alike, I mean that they are the same person. Right? Has anyone ever seen them in the same room together? Which one was dating Derek Jeter? How come every young brunette actress in Hollywood is lesbian-kissing themselves?

PopWatchers, does The Roommate look insane? Or am I insane? (Note: I have consulted Gossip Girl expert Sandra Gonzalez about the resemblance. She thinks I’m insane.)
