Blake Lively: Esquire Cover Girl

Blake Lively bares her legs for Esquire‘s sexy February 2010 cover spread. Hot!!!

The 22-year-old Gossip Girl actress next stars in the feature film, The Town, directed by Ben Affleck. In the mag, Ben showers Blake with praise: “The whole movie kind of hinges in a lot of ways on her performance, and I knew it was going to be the hardest part to cast. This girl came in, and no one had said to me beforehand, ‘Hey, look for this person.’ And obviously she was really attractive, and so I thought, Oh, here comes some blond girl. She came in, did one reading, and just crushed it. Like, Boston accent — really good. I was sort of stunned. I said, ‘Jeez, you know, that was really f—ing good. Who are you?’ She didn’t mention that she was on a television show.”

Ben continued, “I just said, ‘Look, there’s no alternative. I don’t have a second choice [in casting this role].’ …I want to be on the record because I think she’s really going to blow up, and I want to look like the smart guy. I didn’t quite discover her, but at least I want to say I bought the stock when it wasn’t $500 a share.”

You think Ben‘s on Team Blake? 100%!
