Blake Lively: Elephant Riding in Thailand!

Blake Lively: Elephant Riding in Thailand!

Gossip Girl starlet Blake Lively is smokin’ hot in an Adam jumper short at the 2009 CW Network Upfronts at Madison Square Garden in New York City on Thursday (May 21).

The 21-year-old actress has been on enjoying her time off from work and exclusively told about her hiatus.

“I’ve traveled all over Asia,” Blake shared, “I went to Thailand, India and Maldives. I stayed at the most incredible place in the Maldives called Soneva Gili and you have to take a boat to get to your glass-bottom hut in the middle of the water. It’s gorgeous!”

Ms. Lively didn’t stay idle while trekking through Asia. “I’m half-way to getting my scuba license and I went to cooking school in Thailand,” she shared. “I never get time to do things like cook and travel, so now I have two months off and I’m trying to take advantage of it as much as I can.”

When asked if she took back any sourveniers from Asia, Blake told, “Yeah, we actually rode elephants barefoot and washed them one-on-one in the river. It’s the most incredible thing I’ve ever done. I got a painting that an elephant made for me and that is definitely my most prized possession. And some beautiful jewelry from India!”

I didn’t know elephants could paint!!!

  • weight

    Never heard of her but she is smoking HOT! More news on Blake please.

  • mimilala

    Dwayne at #10:
    Wow, you’re all kinds of moronic. You state that Leighton is a stubby short chick and ask whether I’m a lesbian because I find her to be prettier than Blake, who is cute but is way too big IMO…then you go ahead and include Megan Fox, Annalynne McCord, Mila Kunis and Kim Kardashian in your “hottie watch summer 2008″ (ha!) …who are all short and petite girls…and I guess STUBBY SHORT CHICKS by your standards. Nice way to contradict yourself, bruto.

  • flag pole

    She can ride my “elephant” anytime! :D

  • Irish Girl

    #10 are you gay? You’re on a sight that is mostly frequented by women, so naturally we are drawing conclusions about you too.

    #8 ignore him; he’s a dork.

    Back to Blake – she’s good looking, but I can’t forget that she had two plastic surgeries (nose & breast)…..

  • andré

    she has the most perfects boobs i’ve ever seen.
    she’s the sexiest woman alive and she doesn’t even try.

  • emily cristy

    She is lovely and very hot. Her BF is one lucky guy!

  • Jughed

    Mmm, she looks amazing :D :D :D

  • FAIL

    um you’d have to blind and in some major denial not to notice the nose job. Everyone knows she got it done. The boob job is a better kept secret.but i think it’s also true. She’s clearly a very insecure person.

  • Lance – Outsourcing Company

    The is a girl right for a adventure kind of movie.

  • LADyshakes

    Whoa did anyone else notice Ed Westwick in the background – he’s REALLY tan!!

  • jasmine

    Is it just me
    but does jessica, and ed have matching tans??

  • tina

    Man, enough with the freakin’ nose and boob jobs. So gay. Why can’t you guys appreciate it and if not, then don’t freakin’ post here? People are always trying to start something.

  • Nativenyker

    Boring photo subject.

  • Marieme

    Sounds like she really enjoyed the elephants. That’s really sweet. Hope she made a sizeable donation because they really need help with conservation in those areas.

  • jules

    she always had that nose and boobs,jealous much? lol

  • green12

    To FAIL

    Ive never heard of that story…that is sooooooooo fake she is a true beauty unlike other stars…anywho that outfit looks great on her

  • HMMM

    Well did she have her legs done too because she also has amazing legs. Face it this girl is pretty, as is Leighton.

  • Hannah

    Blake and Jessica look amazing! And then there is Taylor.. Oh dear.


    looking good blake!

  • Kat

    You guys are all idiots!!!!!!!!
    Every one who really knows Blake knows that she DEFINITELY has had surgeries done. Its a FACT that she got a nose job.
    What I hadn’t known was that she’s also had a boob job. But one of my close friends who also knows Blake really well told me a while back that Blake has breast implants. I’m not hating or anything, just stating the truth. I’m sure Blake has denied getting a boob job(its not exactly something most people like to admit too) but the truth is that she has definitely had some work done on herself.

  • s.d.

    I don’t think she is particulary pretty, but i must say, she looks good in these photos. She has some sexy stems. Yum! She could wrap those legs around me anytime! Her face usually looks haggard, but not here. Great pictures.

  • lakers fan in boston

    naw i dont like the outfit at all
    if it were a dress i think it would have been better but i dont like it
    her legs look alright, i just dont think they took pics from a good angle cuz her legs r pretty sexy if i remember right

    oh my gosh! that article is so amazing and cute!
    Its sweet that she takes time away from work to pursue other interests.
    Now i wanna go and play with elephants and learn to cook as well!

    I didnt love any of the clothes the cast wore at ‘upfronts’, but anyway she’s really amazing looking. Good for her! Leighton looked nice too, give them both love ok? Maybe they should have swapped outfits.
    Peace :)

    About boobs, go to any fansite gallery and look for pictures from when she was a teen, you will see they are real :)

  • ina


    LOVE IT!!!!

  • Lexi

    Elephants are tortured (tied up and stabbed in the feet with nails) in order to train them to do “tricks” like painting. It’s a horribly cruel practice and I wish Blake would have done her homework before partaking in an activity that hurts so many elephants.
