Taylor Momsen: From 'Grinch' To 'Gossip Girl'

Taylor Momsen, 14, began acting at age three with a national commercial for Shake 'N' Bake. In 2000 she got the role of Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Before she auditioned for The Grinch, she had never read the book or even seen the cartoon. Two years later Taylor starred as Alexandra, the President's daughter, in Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams. Her career came to a halt for over three years until she got the lead role in the never-aired WB series Misconceptions.

Taylor, the older sister of actress Sloane Momsen, was born in St. Louis, Missouri. Her most recent film was Underdog, produced by Disney, was released August 3, 2007. She is now set to star in the new CW television series Gossip Girl, based on the novels by Cecily Von Ziegesar. She will play the character of Jenny Humphrey. Taymom has really grown up.

On the show, Jenny is the younger sister of Dan Humphrey, and like her brother, she is an aspiring artist. Jenny is aware of the fact that she is an outsider among the society girls, but still desires to be like them, especially Serena. And she goes to great lengths to fit in. In the literary world, Jenny became the main character in a Gossip Girl spin-off, The It Girl series. On the show, however, Jenny remains part of the Gossip Girl group. What do you think of Taylor playing Jenny?
