Blake Lively Gets Serious About Savages And Life After Gossip Girl

May 29, 2012 03:35 PM


Blake Lively covers Bullett Magazine's Summer 2012 issue, and the 24-year-old Gossip Girl hottie opens up about her upcoming projects, including the hotly anticipated Oliver Stone flick, Savages.

On working with Stone, Lively tells the mag, “Oliver is by no means a cheerleader. His movies very much reflect the strong, aggressive powerhouse that he is, so he’s not cooing at you along the way. It was challenging because you want to feel like you can do no wrong, especially with your director, but that definitely wasn’t the case here. It’s not a good thing or a bad thing – it’s just the way he works.”

Lively continued, “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 remarks that this gritty role is a huge departure from her character on Gossip Girl, and Lively briefly chats about the inevitable ending of the show, telling the mag, "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. 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 doesn't dish on her romance with Ryan Reynolds, but she does chat about relationships in general. "I’m slow to build friendships, but they always end up being long and lasting," she states. "The way that I meet people is the same way that I’ve always met people. It might be weird if I was on JDate, but I’m not, so that’s good. I meet so many people in passing at parties, but I’ve never been a person who’s like, I know I just met you, but let’s exchange numbers and be best friends."

Blake-cover-230.jpgBlake Lively covers the March cover of ELLE Magazine, and the Gossip Girl hottie shows off her sexy stems and chats about fashion and the famous men in her life.

Blake has been linked to Penn Badgley, Leonardo DiCaprio and Ryan Reynolds, but she insists that she doesn't date around. “I’ve had four boyfriends in my whole life," she says. "I’ve never been with anyone that’s not a boyfriend. If I spend time with a man, it’s because there’s somebody that I know well who has been a friend for a while.“

So what about her romance with DiCaprio last summer? "I've never gone on a date. Maybe I'm too shy," Lively says. "If I've ever had a man in my life, it's because I know him well, and he really means something to me. I don't take that stuff lightly. I’d rather be by myself than be spending any time or energy on somebody that I didn't feel sure about."

Moving on from her love life, Blake talks about how she'd like to start a family at some point in the future. “I hope to have a few girls one day," she says. "If not girls, they better be trannies. Because I have some amazing shoes and bags and stories that need to be appreciated.” Er...we're thinking GLAAD is going to be commenting on this one in 3...2...
