Blake Lively Passes on 'Pride & Prejudice & Zombies'

Blake Lively wears a black robe and comfy boots on the set of Gossip Girl on Tuesday (October 11) in New York City.

The 24-year-old actress recently turned down the lead role in the upcoming movie Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, according to Variety‘s Justin Kroll.

Blake is the latest actress to pass on the project.

Back in June, Emma Stone declined the same offer to play Elizabeth Bennett, while Lionsgate reportedly also eyed Anne Hathaway, and Mia Wasikowska. Scarlett Johansson was also rumored for the part after Natalie Portman dropped out.

    I’m glad she passed. Even if this movie is a comedy take on Pride & Prejudice, Blake would never pass as Elizabeth.

  • SnOOKIE

    yeah right… all these great actresses and blake lively.. hahahahaha

  • OMG

    @Cole:
    she could be the obnoxious sister of Mr. Bingley LOL
    everyone hates her anyway so she would have that in common with the character

  • Domino

    SO GLAD!!! I’m looking forward to this movie.

  • T

    So she passed up the role is code for she didnt screw enough producers to get the role right?

  • Delphic

    Wow the script must suck for even Blake to turn it down.

  • Ann

    loool @ Blake Lively turning down this role. Why is this news? Why not post about her not getting roles (which always happens and makes people laugh) instead of posting about her passing on roles that were never given to her?

    Even if this role was given to her do you honestly think she would take it after seeing all of those actresses passing on it? She wants us to think that she’s in their league not one who takes other people’s scraps.

    The absolute worst thing Ryan Reynold’s could do is attach himself to this girl. If those rumours happen to be true the hate will come down hard on him.

  • James Merrick

    Blake Lively is lovely, gorgeous, sexy and beautiful. She’s amazing. That woman is incredible. There’s a lovely gentleness and sweetness to her. I hope she finds love and happiness with someone around her age now.

  • Cleo

  • Lolita

    Thank God she passed it. She’s a pretty face, but a sucky/boring actress.

  • yeah right

    So she’s turning down roles that was initially offered to Natalie Portman, an Oscar winning actress? Damn. Blake must give good head. She’s doing someone big in HW for sure to get a shot at this role.

  • Frozoid

    Why do these “stars” feel compelled to clutch on to their iphones like a security blanket? Very annoying and desperate of them.
