Taylor’s first gig was playing the too-cute Hoo Cindy Lou Hoo in How The Grinch Stole Christmas. Her next big break came as the angsty teen Jenny Humphrey on Gossip Girl, where her real life personality began to take shape modeled after Jenny’s. Making headlines as a teen rebel with skimpy outfits and raccoon eye makeup, Taylor started a band, The Pretty Reckless. She caught the press’s attention by stating that her parents forcing her into Hollywood left a bad impression on her. Regardless of her personal life, Taylor remains a fashion icon and budding young actress.
