Leighton Meester is on the current cover of Us Magazine, opening up about the untold story of her family and her upbringing. Although she didn't keep it a secret per se, the fact that she was born in prison wasn't necessarily public knowledge until now. While both of her parents spent time in jail for a drug ring that smuggled marijuana into the United States from Jamaica, Meester seems to look at her experience on the bright side: "It makes me very nonjudgmental and open-minded. And I think it just makes me appreciate the things that I have now."
Since we all have our own family secrets, let me ask you this: Are there any secrets that you would be ashamed of if they were made public? Or would you do as Leighton and appreciate the secret for shaping the person you are today?
