Blake Lively looks smoking hot on the cover of the July issue of Marie Claire magazine doesn’t she? I remember first seeing Blake in ‘The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants’ movie and thought she was gorgeous then. Now she’s just as gorgeous and she’s dating Ryan Reynolds. It’s ok to hate her just a little.
Blake has a new movie coming out soon, Savages, in which she co-stars with Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson and Salma Hayek and Benicio del Toro. I actually bought the book to read on my holiday but apparently we were too busy having fun to read so I haven’t started it yet. I will read it before the movie comes out though.
In the mag Blake talks about preparing for the movie as well as how she differs from her Gossip Girl character Serena Van Der Woodsen. Here’s some highlights;
On the public’s perception of her: “People like to draw parallels between my life and the scandalous stories on Gossip Girl. I dress the same as my character, so they think, She lives this life on and off set. I recently shared how many boyfriends I’ve had [four], and people were like, “That’s impossible!” But it’s true. I’ve been with very few people. If I’m not with somebody who really excites or inspires me, then I’d rather be by myself.”
On the hardest part of getting ready for her role in the new film, Savages: “I went to the gun range and learned how to shoot a gun for the first time. It was awful. I asked myself, Why were these things ever invented? But I did feel good that my first three shots were straight to the heart. It’s good to know – don’t mess with me in a gun battle.”
The July issue of Marie Claire hits newsstands June 19th.
