Leighton Meester

Taking a break from her busy life in the States, Leighton Meester was spotted out with a new gentleman caller in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil today (April 13).

The “Gossip Girl” starlet looked thrilled to have the attention of her beau as she went on a sightseeing tour of Rio’s Christ The Redeemer hilltop statue.

Earlier this month, Ms. Meester got swabbed as part of a blood cancer awareness drive called Share the Love by DKMS in New York City.

Leighton explained, "Share the Love is an altruistic idea of love—it's about giving the gift of life to a stranger. You can register as a donor by going to GetSwabbed.org. It's easy, and the more people who get swabbed and are willing to donate, the more lives we can save -- and that's pretty incredible."
