Blake Lively covers the summer edition of Bullett magazine and the fashion-conscious gal looks stunning.
The 24 year-old will start filming the final season of the hit CW show Gossip Girl this summer and Blake makes it plain that she’s ready for bigger and better things.
“I think the best way to describe it is like someone who really enjoyed high school, and is like, I’m a senior and I can’t wait for the next thing! ’Gossip Girl’ was so great, but what’s the next challenge in life? Because, you know, six years is a long time,” Lively confessed.
“And as an actor who plays a caricature of myself on the show, I don’t think I’d say, watch ‘Gossip Girl’ for my best quality of work. But I am very lucky to have had that experience.”
Lively will take a dark turn from her GG gal Serena van der Woodsen in Savages, the Oliver Stone film where she plays a spoiled girl, kidnapped and tortured by a drug kingpin when her pot- dealing boyfriends (yes plural) won’t play ball with the cartel.
“I think it’s really hard for people to digest that these privileged kids are in a three-way relationship,” she said. “Your heroes are all sleeping with each other, but they’re also in love. It’s very easy to dislike them, so when my character gets kidnapped, it’s like, ‘Well, good riddance!’ My greatest challenge was to make her life worthy of saving, to find the heart in this story.”
Stone noted how different this role was for Blake and how much of a change it would be for fans of her Gossip Girl alter-ego.
“A lot of it—the sex, violence, and drugs—was probably scary and challenging for Blake, who seems like she comes from a nice family. It ain’t a Disney World ride and it certainly ain’t the Upper East Side.”
