Unlike Kaley Cuoco's views on feminism, former 'Gossip Girl' actress Leighton Meester knows exactly where she stands on the subject, and even thinks everyone else should call themselves a feminist to stop it being "sensational news."

Meester thinks everyone should call themselves a feminist

Meester, who wrote an op-ed article for the Huffington Post titled 'I'm Not a Tart: The Feminist Subtext of Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men,' did not hesitate when she was recently asked whether or not she considers herself a feminist during an interview with radio station B-93.7's Broadway's Electric Barnyard.

"Yeah, it shouldn't be some sort of sensational news item," she replied. "It's something that I think all people should say about themselves."

This differs from what Cuoco said last week when she was asked if she is a feminist by the February issue of Redbook. 'The Big Bang Theory' actress replied, "Is it bad if I say no?"

"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," she said. "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."

Although Meester never addressed these controversial comments, days after the interview was published Cuoco received a heavy backlash and tried to explain herself. She said the magazine took her comments "taken out of context" and "anyone that truly knows me, knows my heart and knows what I meant."
