Blake Lively - "Seventeen" August 2008

Blake Lively -

Blake Lively opens up in the August 2008 issue Seventeen and shares about the crazy things she does with friends, the hot gossip about her co-stars and what’s really going on between her and her GG boyfriend Penn Badgley.

Here are a few choice quotes from the article:

On her real-life high school compared to Gossip Girl: “Oh, my goodness, my real-life high school experience could not be more different than Gossip Girl. Burbank feels like a small town in the big city of L.A. So for a fun night out, we would go to school fund-raisers. I was very involved in school – I was class president! And all of my friends were good – nobody was too wild. The kids on Gossip Girl enjoy getting a great education, but they couldn’t care less about school itself. But I think at the core, everyone deals with similar things in high school: jealousy, people making up rumors, dating someone you shouldn’t, or wanting to be with someone who’s unattainable.”

On her most awkward moment on Gossip Girl: “Chace and I had to do that scene in the first episode when I’m sitting on his lap on the barstool. Then they call, ‘Cut!’ and I just have to sit on the lap of this guy I met two weeks before! And I’m like, ‘So, you want to get some pizza tonight or something?’ What do you even talk about?!? It’s not as romantic as people think it is.”

On playing Guitar Hero: “I play in tournaments in Brooklyn. I’ll cover myself in sailor tattoos and dress like a rock star. Everyone else dresses totally normally and must think I’m a complete freak!”

On being compared to a hotel heiress: “I once heard someone say that I’m similar to Paris Hilton – since I have a dog and blonde hair, that must mean we’re alike. “It’s a dumb thing to say. I dont think that makes Paris and me similar … I don’t go to clubs, I don’t party, I don’t dance on tables, and I don’t like sex tapes.”

On her relationship with her on-and-off-screen boyfriend and how actors fall for each other: “Penn [Badgley]does these silly dance moves, and he’s very witty and quick, so it’s fun to have sharp banter with him… When you’re saying these words [from the script] that people are making you say to one another, nothing about it is real or genuine. So if two people connect outside their characters, then that’s how they get together.”

On being passionate: “When I care about somebody, whether it’s my best friend or somebody who I would date, I give them all of my heart. I’ve just been so loved, and I’m used to really loving people and trusting them.”

    She looks a little bit different in that picture…
    But she’s too beautiful! I just think they could have picked another photo for the cover (like Taylor Blue said) :)

    Honestly, she looks old, can’t believe she is only 22!! In few years soon, she will definitely need Botox. Sorry to say that.

    Love the Blake, but quite possible the worst picture ever taken of her (or worst photoshop job).

    Jamie Spears Insider Says:

    They could have picked a better picture. Nevertheless, the interview is fascinating to say the least. She certainly has good support that Paris and her are completely unlike.

    They need to put Leighton on more covers. Well, atleast she’s on the cover on Lucky in which I’ll be getting soon.

    Ok seriously why is she gracing the covers of these magazines when she’s quite honestly the least talented and most annoying actress from the ‘Gossip Girl’ cast, I mean the woman exaggerates so much in the drama that it’s a real surprise that she’s the one getting the most attention for being talentless. I’ve always noticed this but have to agree that especially in this overly photoshopped cover look, she looks a lot older than the 20 years of age she claims herself to be.

    Helena Says:

    I feel sorry for Blake. I would be crying if they photoshopped my face like that. Seriously, what did they do her face?! This photoshopping madness should stop!
