“[Baking cupcakes] was just a way to sabotage Ryan. He was working out as much as he was, and I’m the girl. I’m supposed to look better.”
—Blake Lively jokes at a “Green Lantern” press conference about why she baked so many cupcakes while making the movie. Or at least, she’s sorta joking here. Something tells me that might actually have been the motivation. [People]
But Ryan Reynolds didn’t mind. Here his response after the jump Keep reading »
Dudes, want to plan a date that will have Blake Lively eating out of the palm of your hand? Or at least, straightening the Mickey Mouse ears on your head? Take the woman to Disneyland! Blake and new rumored boyfriend Leonardo DiCaprio headed there on Sunday night, right after the MTV Movie Awards. The two went on StarTours and hung out at a penny arcade on Main Street.
But interestingly, Blake also went with Ryan Gosling back when it was rumored they were dating. Keep reading »
“I just wanna say to all the girls out there, it’s cool to be bad, I get it … but it’s also possible to make it in Hollywood without a reality show. When I came up in this business, if you made a sex tape, you were embarrassed and you hid it under your bed and if you took naked pictures of yourself on your cellphone, you hid your face. Hide your face! I just want to say to all the girls out there it’s OK to be a good girl. I’m trying to make it cool.”
—Reese Witherspoon is not one to make bitchy comments, so I was surprised when she snarked on fellow celebs with reality shows, sex tapes, and cell phone nudie pics while accepting her Generation Award at last night’s MTV Movie Awards. I’m assuming with the sex tape comment she was taking a swipe at Kim Kardashian/Paris Hilton/Tila Tequila and their ilk. But was the nude cellphone pics comment pointed at Blake Lively, who has vehemently said the alleged naked photos of her released last week are fakes? I don’t disagree with her gripes, per se, but it was hella ballsy to say that with Lively sitting in the audience. And don’t even get me started on dissecting her “good girl”/”bad girl” comments. My gender-studies-minor head will explode. [TMZ] Keep reading »
“I’m always traveling, and I get so excited when I find a new spice or a new sauce. This is absolutely crazy, but I wanted a sauce from New Orleans, and they wouldn’t send it because the FDA didn’t approve it. I called the restaurant and I said, “OK, can you buy a teddy bear and cut it open and put it in and send it?” They’re like, “No, we are not the drug cartel; we’re not sending you your sweet potato sauce in a teddy bear.”
— Chanel spokeswoman and nude photo victim Blake Lively on how far she’s willing to go for her favorite foods. We like her about a million times more already. [Glamour] Keep reading »
“Every relationship you have, you’re learning and growing and taking something from that. So for me, it’s never been too dramatic of a thing when something ends. I have a strong sense of myself. That gives me a sense of security, you know?”
—Blake Lively pontificates on relationships in Glamour. I don’t really have an opinion of Blake one way or another, but I kind of find this quote naive and a little self-righteous. Is it that she’s never had her heart broken or that she’s above getting emotional? Or maybe she’s been hurt very badly and is trying to front. Part of breaking up is being sad when a meaningful relationship ends. There is nothing weak about showing your vulnerability. It’s not dramatic, it’s human. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
“It’s for the film ‘Hick.’ I thought [my character] needed red hair. It helps when you’re playing a role, when I don’t feel like myself. And I don’t really feel like myself with red hair… I feel like Ariel.”
—Blake Lively explains that she hasn’t gone strawberry blonde permanently and that the new shade is for a movie. As for “The Little Mermaid” comparison, glad to hear that she saw it, too. Perhaps wearing a turquoise dress (Ariel’s signature color) wasn’t the best choice. The parallel wouldn’t have been as obvious if she were rocking an LBD. [People] Keep reading »
“Gossip Girl”‘s resident dumb blonde Blake Lively is blonde no more! She’s been busy as the face of Chanel and such, flitting from stylish event to stylish event. At last night’s Time 100 party celebrating the 100 Most Influential People in the World, Lively debuted her new red locks. What do you think? Should she get back to bleaching or are you into the ginger thing? Keep reading »
Since “Gossip Girl” and its histrionics are going to be on hiatus for another month or so, I thought we’d take a look back at one of the greatest friend pairings (or is that frenemy pairings?) on earth via the show’s two biggest stars — Blake Lively and Leighton Meester. Both ladies have great style — I mean Blake’s been chosen as the new face of Chanel, and Leighton’s just gorgeous. But who would win in a true style showdown? Let’s take a look after the jump!
