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.)

  • marci

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

  • barnaby

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

  • Klee

    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 skanky if she had wore the usual amount of makeup starlets pile on at these events. And she does look so young, almost childlike.

  • schullen

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

  • marci

    Another applause for that astounding dress…

  • xoxo

    Good to know she’s still BFF w/ Lauren, Amber & America. I think Blake is just one of her plain-fancy & so-so friends.

  • vannah

    She rocks so much…
    I love her hair and the dress
    Can’t wait to see her movies most esp Post Grad!

  • juniper

    The outfit is ok and her face looks youthful and happy here. Love everything about her. Thanks Jared!

  • mannnix

    She is SERIOUSLY cute, gorgeous & beautiful.

  • gems

    I definitely would rock that style…I mean its looks awsome!!! She looks amazing…like she always does…and she has the legs & body for wearing that kind of dress…!!!!

  • BELL

    Love her so much and Gilmore Girls!!

  • ellise

    Can’t wait to see the movie, it looks like its gonna be great, and Alexis is always great in all all her movies. Love the hair & the dress too.

  • ab_forever

    She’s the most beautiful girl on Earth.
    Seriosuly, she’s so lucky to be so gorgeous, even when she’s not trying…

  • goody

  • doreen

    Awesome interview Jared. I was so glad that talked about her projects and not too much into her personal/lovelife. *claps hands* Thank you!!! I’ll be looking forward for her movies as well.

  • isnt_it

    Jared looked dazzled & mesmerized w/ Alexis presence…

  • anonymous

    after the show is the afterparty and after the party is the … ,R Kelly,
    just kidding ;-)

  • khryss

    She’s beyond gorgeous. & I actually like this interview it’s quite entertaining… And she’s a New Yorker now that adds plus points


    Beautiful face + grounded personality + flawless skin + amazing dress = ALEXIS BLEDEL

  • alexiscrazed


    Of course she could pull it off. And I love the fact that she is quite daring now to try on new wardrobe styles. She can wear anything, and she can almost make anything look good. And even with this rib-cut, it still completely covers her. Subtlely sexy is what I call that

  • boomer

    I love & miss Alexis. Thanks Jared, you could put her again on your site next week – lol!

  • anam

    She’s gorgeous and got a wonderful dress. I love her shoes too. Her wardrobe people are sure doing a good job!

  • larkine

    Alexis looks fab at 27 ( but still looks like a teen). I guess age is just a number after all. She looks better than ever. Best of luck to her movies.

  • austine

    Thanks Jared, Alexis would always be on my Hollywood Radar no matter what!

  • sandy

    I’m always surprised at how great she always looks. The dress is really “knocking”

  • sandy


    I think she’s moving to NY coz she’s planning / thinking of going back to school to finish college. She’s from NYU before. Well good for her – it was a nifty back-up plan.

  • keane

    The girl has an amazing body…. Her smile is the most beautiful thing ever and her smirk is sexy. The dress and the shoes are just to damn sexy. Its ALL working

  • corrine

    Alexis is ALL NATURAL from head to toes. I really like seeing her pics. And yes Jared, Alexis is really nice… so genuinely nice.

  • trixx

    If Alexis could not be Bella Swann anymore… at least she could play a vampire in Twilight coz she’s so pale & ageless – lol!
