Alexis Bledel: Slacking on the Birthday Present Front!

Alexis Bledel: Slacking on the Birthday Present Front!

Alexis Bledel hits up NYC hotspot Tenjune for a Stolichnaya-sponsored Tribeca Film Festival after-party on Sunday (April 26).

Earlier in the evening, the 27-year-old actress wore the same cut-out cute dress to the premiere of her new movie, The Good Guy. At the after-party, I asked Alexis who designed her gorgeous dress. She whipped a cheat sheet out of her clutch and spelled out the designer’s name for me. “C-U-S-H-N-I-E E-T O-C-H-S.” Yes, Cushnie et Ochs. It was a glorious moment having Rory Gilmore spell a word for me considering the fast-paced dialogue she had on Gilmore Girls.

(Click inside for‘s interview with Alexis…)

JJ: [Your The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants costar] America Ferrera’s birthday was the Saturday before last (April 18). Were you able to get her anything?

AB: Um. (pauses, laughs) No, I’ve been slacking on the birthday present front but I celebrated her birthday at a party. And it was a great fun time!

JJ: Where do you like to relax in the Big Apple?

AB: The parks! It’s so nice out. I just moved here and like it better [than Los Angeles]. I lived here before Gilmore Girls started. I moved to L.A. to do the show and then when it ended, I wanted to come back. I even got to see [my Gilmore costar Lauren Graham in the Broadway revival of Guys and Dolls]. She’s awesome. Really fun.

JJ: You’ve already played a goody two-shoes on Gilmore and a prostitute in Sin City. What kinds of roles are you looking to do in the future?

AB: I’m looking for variety. Anything that’s different from what I’ve done. I like that The Good Guy is more of a grown-up role but I keep it pretty wide up. Every script you get is so different, you have to be pretty open-minded.

JJ: Can you tell us about your character in The Good Guy?

AB: Beth [Vest]! She’s an urban conservationalist in NYC and she’s dating Tommy (played by Scott Porter). He’s a trader on Wall Street, has a high pressure job and is training an up-and-coming guy (Daniel Seaver, played by Bryan Greenberg). So Beth is friends with Daniel, he’s dating Tommy, she thinks Tommy is the perfect guy… and there’s a lot that happens. It follows their dating lives.

Alexis also told she’s currently not shooting anything but as always, fielding scripts! She also reiterated her love for Wendy’s chicken nuggets! (Once on Late Night With Conan O’Brien, she called Hi-C Fruit Punch the “perfect chaser” to Wendy’s nuggets.)

It’s so hard for me not to see her as a little girl. Her eyes and face are so innocent still. I can’t believe she’s 27.

Gorgeous, one of the most beautiful girls around and so likeable xD

i digg a chic who will wear the same thing twice – tells you she’s not insecure or motivated by the unwritten rules in Hollywood.
Please DO NOT CHANGE BLEDEL, you’re fricken gem in a pile of crap!

SONNYriente @ 04/27/2009 at 6:41 pm

bonzo, if you actually read the post, then you wouldn’t have had to ask that question. also, jared can post whatever he wants. it’s his site. this is a breath of fresh air from the twilight and tween posts.

i miss you ALEXIS! and you were smart to move back to NYC.

Love her. She will always be Rory Gilmore to me.

Such a beautiful, unaffected woman.

Hope to see more of her in the future

Nice move Jared, very awesome interview. Keep up your “Regular Alexis Blog” – lol!

The dress is bitchin’. And she can pull it off coz she has the face & the body that rocks!

Woa, provocative dress for lil miss RG! She has enough style sense to balance it out with fresh, barely visible makeup. It would have looked totally ****** if she had wore the usual amount of makeup starlets pile on at these events. And she does look so young, almost childlike.

Wow Jared 3x time in row… is she your fave gal now? Great choice!
