Wonder if Leighton Meester read Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting's Redbook interview?

The former Gossip Girl star is no stranger to the topic of feminism—after all, she wrote an op-ed piece for The Huffington Post over the summer titled "I'm Not a Tart: The Feminist Subtext of Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men."

So when asked whether or not she considers herself a feminist during a recent interview with radio station B-93.7's Broadway's Electric Barnyard, Meester didn't skip a breath before responding, "Yeah, it shouldn't be some sort of sensational news item," and added, "It's something that I think all people should say about themselves."

Cuoco-Sweeting's recent interview was never brought up to Meester, but it definitely popped into our minds given the subject matter.

The Big Bang Theory actress told the mag that she doesn't consider herself much of a feminist, explaining, "Things are different now, and I know a lot of the work that paved the way for women happened before I was around...I was never that feminist girl demanding equality, but maybe that's because I've never really faced inequality.

"I cook for Ryan [Sweeting] five nights a week: It makes me feel like a housewife; I love that. I know it sounds old-fashioned, but I like the idea of women taking care of their men. I'm so in control of my work that I like coming home and serving him. My mom was like that, so I think it kind of rubbed off."

However, after facing some backlash regarding her comments, Kaley took to social media to try and clear the air, saying that her comments to the magazine were "taken out of context" and "anyone that truly knows me, knows my heart and knows what I meant."

When she wasn't discussing feminism, Meester answered a question that is probably on every Gossip Girl fan's mind—is a reunion ever going to happen?! She was quick to answer this one, too, and unfortunately, her one-word reply was, "Nope."

Sorry, xoxo.
