Leighton Meester in The Roommate with Minka Kelly

"The Roommate" star Leighton Meester is a simple all-American girl when it comes to making a day special: a movie and a football game. Of course, in her case, the movie is No. 1 at the box office, and the game is Super Bowl XLV.

"This is the most amazing weekend of my life," the "Gossip Girl" star bubbled Sunday on Twitter. "#TheRoommate AND the Superbowl! :)Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your support"

Meanwhile, costar Minka Kelly was enjoying the moment as well, donning a hat Friday and heading out to see the thriller "with my dad to get the feel of the reaction w a real audience. It was sold out and the reactions couldn't have been better!" she said on Twitter. "Thank you to everyone enjoying the movie and making this so fun!! Yeah!!"

Kelly also dug the Justin Bieber-Andy Samberg sketch parodying "The Roommate" on "Saturday Night Live": "Hysterical!! What an honor!!," she said overnight on Twitter.

Check out the "SNL" sketch below.
