Blake Lively Covers 'Marie Claire' December 2009

Blake Lively is pink hot in a Bottega Veneta bikini and cardigan on the December 2009 cover of Marie Claire, on stands November 10. Here are some interview snippets from the 22-year-old Gossip Girl starlet:

One of the remarkable things about you is your ability to imagine yourself in situations that are much bleaker than what you’ve experienced in your own life. As a character, I get to be this wild, outgoing person that I’m so not. I think it all comes from being the youngest of five. I was always observing my siblings and hearing stories about their lives that turned out to to be helpful as an actress.

Do you think of yourself as Southern, even though you grew up in L.A.? I grew up in L.A., but I was the only one in my family born there. I have a tight-knit Southern family, so whenever I tell people I’m from L.A., they say, “Yeah but you don’t count,” I guess because of the Southern values I was raised with , and the way I eat – the more sugary and cheesy and fried, the better.

The way you dress is so bold. You seem very comfortable with yourself right now. Living in New York, I feel stronger and more like a woman than ever before. In high school, it was like, what power do I have – I have long blonde hair, you know? But working as hard as I do now, I feel a sense of power and respect, too. And I’ve learned an incredible amount about fashion on Gossip Girl. Clothes are a personal expression, and my style is as ever-changing as I am: I’m growing, maturing, developing, I’m going through new things in my life, and with that, what I choose to wear changes.

  • Jo

    Gorgeous !

  • bandit

    Bland, just another generic blond, thinks she’s edgy because she’s into fashion, but nope, still not. And why doesn’t ANYBODY (not even the photog?!!) tell her she needs to stand up straight and has BAD POSTURE! Every pic you see of her, professional or not, she slouches!

  • Grace

    DROP DEAD GORGEOUS ,THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN THE WORLD
    DAMN YOU BLAKE

  • Lucy

    BANDIT you say she’s “bland” and “just another generic blond”? What girl are you looking at? Blake Lively is amazingly gorgeous.

  • fresh

    I agree with Bandit—Bland. Nothing special about her. Plus she’s a bad actress.

  • Cherry

    Girl maybe not a good actress ,but she is flawless.

    So freaking beautiful

  • Cherry

    Say again ,Girl is breathtaking beautiful ,unbelievable stunning.

    But girl ,you need go to have some lessons for the acting

  • Cherry

    @Bosie:
    No one care about the interview ,her interview always be same.
    Come to here only for her beauty,that is all

  • dundies

    shes WAY more interesting that leighton meester, but GG is a joke. Season 1 was the only thing good about this show

  • jessie

    shess very veryy pretty!! and i love her character and CLOTHES on gossip girll

  • lol

    I love Blake. It’s refreshing for someone to have a regular life and not try to be edgy just because it is “IN”. Keep on being you Blake we have enought trainwrecks.

    What babe isn’t pretty in pink?

  • http://firemendating.com Melissa Glitter

    Wow she looks amazing. A great talent and a future oscar winner for sure

  • AutumnM

    “Living in New York, I feel stronger and more like a woman than ever before. In high school, it was like, what power do I have – I have long blonde hair, you know? ”

    What the heck does her having long blond hair have to to with anything or her not feeling powerful? Kind of a stupid comment to make.

  • Missy

    My god! she just gets hotter and hotter!! ♥♥♥

  • Matthew

    Holy shit she is hot.

  • lexy

    She looks beautiful and it’s nice to see she’s comfortable in her own skin and doing what she wants to do. She’s not like that idiot blonde Jessica Simpson who has no talent and a weird relationship with her family. Or the other JJ fave – the brunette, who has to pay the paps b/c no one would actual give her money for her “acting” abilities and calls herself a fashionista b/c no one else will!
    Blake’s young, vibrant, successful and beautiful and she seems down to earth! She’s a breath of fresh air – especially on JJ!!! (not that there’s anything wrong with Leighton – love her too).

  • raysa

    OH MY F****** GOD BLAKE IS INSANELY HOT JEEZE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL IN HOLLYWOOD, NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZINGLY TALENTED, AND SHE AND PENN ARE JUST PERFECT TOGETHER, LOVE HER FOREVER

    AND STOP SAYING BAD THINGS ABOUT HER, JEALOUSY GIRLS WHO HATE HER AWESOMENESS AND THE WAY BOYS JUST CANT RESIST HER, PLEASE ITS NOT HER FALT, SHE DID NOTHING TO YOU SO STOP IT OKAY

  • CANDY

    Gosh ,she is a totally bombshell .Flawless,stunning,talented.

    This girl is P.E.R.F.E.C.T!

  • ness17

    Get over yourself Blake Lively, you’re nothing special

  • Cher

    @AutumnM: Read some of the comments on here… people are calling her another dumb blonde etc, when there are just as much if not more brunettes in the industry. people put down blondes. im guessing the same thing happened in school….people might not of taken her seriously

  • ELINE840613

    She is perfect ,that’s what i say to her!

  • pinkbox

    INCREDIBLE BEAUTIFUL!!!

  • corbin

    I agree with Lexy. She’s just a breath of fresh air. She’s just down to earth and not full of drama…and I guess that’s what makes her “bland” or “boring” to some people.

  • Haya

    gorgeous! those are my absolutely favorite pictures of her!!!!!

  • http://dlisted.com lakers fan in boston

    the cover look really nice
    interesting interview, i didnt even no she was from the south
    i always thought she was from NY

  • ALwayS

    I think she just looks very manly and goofy to me.

    But she has a body to die for. Not her face, though.

  • Andrea

    Her hair is what has helped make her famous…why is she complaining?

  • http://www.crookedbrook.com chef de Vestes de Cuisine

    My vote for the most boring cover of the year!

  • T

    Most beautiful girl everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
