Early life and careerEdit
Momsen was born in St. Louis, Missouri to Collette and Michael Momsen and lives in Potomac, Maryland. Her younger sister Sloane Momsen is also an actress. Her first 'job' was modelling at two years old.
She began acting professionally at age three, with a national commercial for Shake 'N' Bake. Then she got a role in The Prophet's Game. In 2000 Taylor got the role of Cindy Lou Who in How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Two years later she got parts in two more motion pictures: Hansel & Gretel, in which she played Gretel, and Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams, in which she played Alexandra, the President's daughter.
Taylor's career came to a halt for over three years until she got the lead role in the never-aired WB series Misconceptions. In 2002, Momsen recorded "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" & "One Small Voice" featuring Myra & Camille Winbush for School's Out! Christmas.
Momsen appeared in the 2006 film Saving Shiloh and as Molly in the 2007 Walt Disney Pictures film Underdog.
She currently plays the character of Jenny Humphrey in the television series Gossip Girl, which is based on the book series by Cecily von Ziegesar. The show revolves around the lives of socialite young adults growing up on New York's Upper East Side who attend elite academic institutions while dealing with sex, drugs, and other teenage issues. The show received high rating during its premiere on The CW (which was the WB).
In March 2009, Momsen stated in an interview with OK! Magazine that her band, The Pretty Reckless, had recently signed a deal with Interscope Records. She also mentioned that she writes all the songs, sings, and plays guitar on the album.
She played her first tour with her band, The Pretty Reckless, on The Vans Warped Tour, on Summer of 2010
