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.

# 5

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

@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

# 7

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

# 8

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

# 9

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

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.

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.

Sooner or Later after a guy thats shes with is going to want something more than sex…

she doesn’t look like she would be able to give a meaningful conversation

HAHAHAHAHA @ 10/11/2011 at 6:04 pm

Gilad Shalit is coming HOME!!!! we are soooooooooooooo happy here in Israel!!! (((((((((:

@OMG:
haha yes she would make a perfect Caroline.

She’s so pretty even when she’s tired!

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

yeah right @ 10/11/2011 at 6:43 pm

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.

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

So far sane posts
Mixed praise and critical
Countdown before the b******d usual suspects from Refaeli psost to show up

@HAHAHAHAHA: yes, finally!!! its celebration time! :)
btw, this girl cant act…and whats with her mouth all the time?

I cant believe everyone I̶̲̥̅̊s̶̲̥̅̊ hating on blake…too bad

Good, because everyone knows she’d ruin the movie anyway.

Blake has to be the most overhyped person in hollywood. She’s not that talented or attractive

Her face look mannish in that pic….She isn’t that attractive

LOL!….Blake is one of the last people they asked as usual she is behind Emma Stone and Carey Mulligan with Roles…
