Blake Lively: Million Dollar Maker

Blake Lively: Million Dollar Maker

Blake Lively dons the Suzanna Dai “Antwerp” necklace as she starts a glamorous new day shooting scenes for Gossip Girl in New York City on Tuesday (August 11).

On-screen love interests Chace Crawford and Joanna Garcia were also spotted filming flirty scenes together. (Jo is toting around the George Gina & Lucy “Emosion Oceanica” handbag.)

TV Guide recently released their list of top earners on TV, and only two actors under 30 made the cut — Chace and Blake. Each of them make $50,000 per episode, which adds up to $1.2 million each annually.

FYI: Chace is wearing an IWC watch.

It’s ridiculous if Chace and Blake make more than the others. All the main characters should earn the same amount.

Joanna Garcia is guest starring on Gossip Girl???

Why??? It’s bad enough that Kristen Bell is narrating after The CW canned Veronica Mars, but now Joanna is on after The CW canned her own show, Privileged!

Leighton and Ed can act much better. Chace has a forgettable storyline. Blake is always annoying and whining.

She paid for the body/boobs. She shows them off a lot.

L8N/Ed stans relax when contracts renegoiate you know her and Ed will get the bump up. The CW seems to love this show despite the low ratings.

BTW Blake looks fantastic and gives off a nice vibe always.

i’m a big fan of goosip girl and blake and chace, but … i think ever since blair&chuck started they are basiclly making this show go… storyline for blake is kinda borning – all the time drama with her and dan and all those other boys and blah blah. same chace – he’s cute, but ed i waaay more talented than him! and truth be told – leighton and ed owns the show !! most of my friends wach the show just beacuse of them , so i am really suprised that they don’t get $50K. and don’t forget – teenagers loves leighton – she jusr got Teen Choice, and Blake didn’t so maybe they will high leighton’s salary.

Blake had her Sisterhood movie before this show so I could see her making a few dollars more. This show isn’t all that with the ratings so Blake and Leighton probably make more money with magazine covers and other side stuff.

Blake won that award the first year the show started. And now Leighton has also. Same difference since its rigged anyhow. I don’t know how much credence anyone should put into posts about teens watching for Chuck/Blair when the couples airtime has increased and the shows ratings still plumeted. I think its simple their salaries reflect where they started out at. Serena was clearly the catalyst for the show. Originally Chuck was going to just be reoccurring but Ed has impressed everyone so I’m sure when his time to renogiate contracts comes up he’ll get a big raise. If they eventually turn it into the Chuck/Blair show (and its time to negotiate contracts) then Ed/L8N may end up making the most.

Am I the only one that finds this a low salary amount? I could have sworn the charmed girls and even the BTVS kids made wayyyyyy more than just 50k an episode by season 3. I know the economy is in the toilet but isn’t the minimum they have pay full time players in hour long shows like 30k or 40k or something.

I’m not surprised Blake makes more than Leighton even though I think they should make the same, but CHACE makes more than Leighton? How is that possible?

WTF? Chace gets paid the same as Blake? That should be Leighton’s salary

she is super gorgeous ,omg,why this chick always looks soooooooooooooooo beautiful

she gets the most becaust josh asked her join to the show many times,it’s different
and she’s the real star of the show

she is super gorgeous ,omg,why this chick always looks soooooooooooooooo beautiful

she gets the most because JOSH asked her join to the show many times,it’s different
and she’s the real star of the show

You have to remember too these salaries are based on the intital hiring of the actors. They had no way of knowing that Leighton/Ed would outshine who they wanted to be the stars of the show, which was Blake Lively, she was the most well known. I do consider her ONE of the stars of the show but at this point people arent tuning in for her, at least the majority of people arent. I dont care what anyone says, Chuck and Blair are what has kept this show going.

@Wendy:
i agree.
we know most of people love chair,but out of Gossip Girl ,who cares them? people know them becaust Gossip Girl
But BLAKE LIVELY isnot ,she has the movies ,she has excellent acting skill in the movie

BTW, Blake is beautiful ,talented ,sexy ,gorgeous ,oh ,she is my goddess
Penn is the lucky guy

she is gorgeous but cannot act @ 08/11/2009 at 9:54 pm

Blake lively ,def is a damn gorgeous little girl ,chace and her are the eyes candies on the show ,they are not work

this world is unfair ,you have good looking ,you have more money

she is gorgeous but cannot act @ 08/11/2009 at 9:57 pm

blake is gorgeous ,but cant act ,also chace

Gossip Girl only put the BARBIE AND KEN on the show,but BARBIE AND KEN not fall in love with each othe
LMAO

Chace gets the money for looks-part of the reason ppl tune in. Blake gets the money from the talent. Everyone can have all these arguments regarding Blake and Leighton, but no one can deny that B is talented. She has shown it in many films and in this show. But the prob is that her character isn’t given a great storyline. Leighton has the privilege of having a good story handed to her. She doesn’t neccessarily have to act it well. Kids are entranced by the Chair thing.

blake and chace!??!!? @ 08/11/2009 at 11:26 pm

WHAT?!?!?! U HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!! CHACE DOES NOTHING IN THE SHOW AND BLAKE IS A TERRIBLE ACTRESS!! LEIGHTON AND ED ARE THE STARS OF THE SHOW!! THIS IS CRAZY!
DOESN’T TALENT MATTER ANY MORE???

LOSERS! the friends cast made a million PER EPISODE! that’s what they make in 1 year!! also, its ridiculous that chace and blake make the most, they are clearly only there for their looks, can’t act and have forgettable storylines, I hope this will change soon! chair shoul DEFINETLY make the most! they keep it going!

ken and barbie @ 08/12/2009 at 12:06 am

oh yeah ,ken and barbie make the most

Loving her entire outfit. She’s gorgeous~

if i were leighton id be asking for a pay rise.. shes who brings in the viewers and is clearly the star of the show

Well this salary was pre determined. And Serena started off with the best storyline….and then it went downhill with the Chuck and Blair thing. They cant lower her salary..that would be wrong.

Blake Lively brought in a lot of viewers because GG fans were also Sisterhood fans.. Leighton was not famous before this show.. Chace did a movie or whatever, and the show is based on him and Blake.

Blair’s character is much more interesting now.. like all bitchhy queen bee’s of highschool, ya know?

Blake is so sweet and charismatic and friendly to fans. She is just amazing all around which does help bring in viewers.
