People Are Only Just Realising Jenny From Gossip Girl Is Cindy Lou From The Grinch
Taylor Momsen aka. little Jenny Humphrey, is undoubtedly one of the most iconic Gossip Girl characters.
But it seems one of her lesser-known roles has somehow slipped under the radar until now, with GG fans only just discovering that she also played Cindy Lou Who in the 2000 festive classic How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
And it's fair to say minds are well and truly blown.
It all started when meme page Blonde Bombshell shared a picture of the two characters side by side, hailing Momsen as a 'versatile queen'.
"Had no clue!" said one follower, with another adding: "No way! Never realised that!"
"Well I've learnt something new today," said another, with a fourth commenting: "I had no idea!!! I'm shook!"

Well believe it guys, as Cindy Lou was actually 27-year-old Taylor's breakout role at the age of just seven (feel old yet?), and she even got to display her impressive vocals in the film with the song Where Are You Christmas?, which is pretty apt seeing as, post GG, she went on to have a flourishing music career with punk back The Pretty Reckless.
Following the success of The Grinch, Taylor went on to star in Spy Kids 2: The Island Of Lost Dreams as well as earning the title role in 2002 Hansel And Gretel.
Speaking to Today, Taylor said she feels "blessed" to be part of such a Christmas classic, saying: "I think that people love The Grinch just simply because the core of the story is so sweet and it's so heartwarming and it has such a good message. That no matter what age touches your heart, I think that that's an amazing thing to be a part of. "
We'll always remember Taylor as Little J in Gossip Girl, though - her biggest acting role to date, that shot her to fame at the age of just 14.
