Blake Lively Nursing Penn Badgley Back To Health
JustJared.com had the extreme pleasure of interviewing the Gossip Girl couple together but Penn couldn’t talk much because he recently had his upper-left wisdom tooth removed. Blake told me she was wearing a Victoria Beckham ensemble, Lorraine Schwartz jewels and Christian Louboutin pumps. She even did a cute spin for me so I could see her shoes sparkle!
Here’s what Blake shared before being twirled around on the dance floor by Penn during Marvin Gaye‘s “Distant Lover”:
JJ: I take it you’ve been nursing Penn back to health after he had his wisdom tooth extracted…
BL: He’s a strong man – he’s doing well. (laughs)
JJ: Did you like his Men’s Health cover?
BL: He always looks extremely handsome. Always!
JJ: What does Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation mean to you?
BL: Cancer research in general is so important. My grandfather had cancer. Also, I’m very close with [jewelry designer] Lorraine Schwartz and this is close to her for personal reasons. So, I wanted to be out here to support her tonight. She got me off work, so I’m very excited!
The evening raised nearly $4 million for cancer research. During the auction, Blake and Penn helped auction off an orange crocodile Hermes “Birkin” bag, which has a five-year year waiting list!. It sold for a whopping $60,000!
Stay tuned for more of Blake‘s interview about her new film, The Town.
