After a stint at Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Georgia Pellegrini went from a Gossip Girl character to a cowgirl with a weapon collection. And it all started when Dan Barber asked her to kill five turkeys, which she had to — queasily — chase, tackle, and conquer. Now Pellegrini is a bona fide hunter with a book under her belt (Girl Hunter, out today). “People think an American hunter is a middle-aged white male who goes off into the woods and tells dirty jokes and shoots things,” she tells the Post. But she assures them, she still wears mascara and miniskirts … sometimes! [NYP]
