Blake Lively: 'I've  Had 4 Boyfriends In My Whole Life'

Blake Lively strikes a pose in Victoria Beckham on the cover of Elle‘s March issue, on newsstands February 14.

Here’s what the 24-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On the men in her life: “I’ve had four boyfriends in my whole life. I’ve never been with anyone that’s not a boyfriend. If I spend time with a man, it’s because there’s somebody that I know well who has been a friend for a while.”

On not having a stylist: “When I’m going to an event, I’ll send [shoe designer] Christian [Louboutin] a picture of my outfit and say, ‘What shoes do you think I should wear with this?’”

On kids: “I hope to have a few girls one day. If not girls, they better be trannies. Because I have some amazing shoes and bags and stories that need to be appreciated.”

  • becca

    how is she 24, on the cover she looks like she could be 40?!!

  • julia

    “If not girls, they better be trannies.” WTF?

  • Lolita

    The thing people react to, Blake, is not that you have had many boyfriends. It’s that you had two (one before Gossip Girl, next one Penn) for six years, then suddenly Leo for a couple of months and Ryan the next month.

  • Shauna

    She’s only had four boyfriends in her life, bullsh*t! Hun, it’s obvious you’ve been around the block more than my mailman!

  • Yee

    is she kidding us? We already know she was with Penn Badgley, Ryan Gosling, Leo DiCaprio and Ryan Reynolds. So no boyfriends before Penn? And what was that with her nude pics – there must be no 5, who leaked them (or at least Jennifer Garner ;-))! Ha!

  • ana

    well we know three of them.- penn, leo and ryan. who’s the fourth?

  • Chace

    Jared just had to pick out the one most ‘outrageous’ line in a 5 page interview so the haters could flock out.
    And here they come!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ace11

    Ryan Gosling did the Nasty with Blake??

    When did this occur?

  • ana

    fourth is Kelly Blatz

  • Mia

    trannies? sorry? what is she talking about with her stories.. ahahaha

  • sally

    I think she meant she had 4 boyfriends multiplied by 10 ;-]

  • Amanda

    She’s the new Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s starting to top Gwyneth in the name-dropping, pretentious, idiotic comments game.

  • Sue Denim

    That dumbass ‘trannies’ comment is not going to go down well…

  • Tootie

    you are all so judgmental! you dont even know her personally! wtf. get a life you haters! i bet you guys arent so perfect too! and hello! ryan gosling was just a friend. you shouldnt BELIEVE ALL YOU READ IN MAGAZINES OR WEBSITES!

  • lily

    she is gorg!!!!

  • lily

    she has a lot of haters :) wow, nasty people commenting on a person they havent met. yeah guys, YOU ARE ALL SO PERFECT

  • Sue Denim

    To be fair, it does make sense for her to have had four boyfriends. Maybe the ‘others’ just weren’t around long enough to be boyfriends so it’s not exactly a lie.

  • Anonymous

    In Oct. 2010, she went to the “Blue Valentine” premier with Ryan Gosling and then to Disneyland. They never dated.

  • hannah

    Ofcourse we took her comment seriously about “trannies” you are pathetic. you dont get her sense of humor. i think the interview was funny. will definitely get a copy!

  • brian


  • Mary

    “I hope to have a few girls one day. If not girls, they better be trannies. Because I have some amazing shoes and bags and stories that need to be appreciated.”
    What an ignorant statement.

  • pheobe

    @Anonymous: Going out with a male friend doesnt mean they are dating

  • Rita

    @Amanda: Is it bad to mention a friend? wow. we all know christian and blake are close.

  • tara

    I believe what she’s saying is true.

    But I find it funny that she thinks having had 4 boyfriends by the time you’re 24 is little.

    Only in Hollywood honey!

  • Reese

    her hair is so good

  • Kate

    Hard to believe she’s only had 4 “boyfriends” and because she had to point that out must be because a lot of people think she beds directors (Hi, Ben Affleck!) to get parts. Google it and you’ll be surprised (maybe not) at how many hits you’ll get.

  • Anonymous

    and you dispute her words about her own life. She said they were hiding in bushes taking photos, this is still happening.

  • ace11


    Although it is HIGHLY possible she and Gosling could have hi the sack together

  • Chanel

    How am I the only one who thinks her kids quote is funny? She does have great shoes.

  • Yee

    But of course she was just there to bake him cupcakes.

  • kami

    she didn’t date in high school?

  • MaisyRL

    nice job with the humble brag aka namedropping there Blake. ‘oh yea, Christian always tells me what shoes to wear. and Anna (Wintour) gives me her advice on my outfits whenever i ask. i’m so awesome and fashion forward because i don’t have a stylist, designers make me one of a kind pieces whenever i ask, and i just had dinner with George Clooney the other night for a project…jk, jk. she didn’t say that. BUT the point is Blake acts so sweet and down to earth, yet she loves to slip in those comments about who she knows. the brown-nosing/famewh*ring always comes through.

  • speaktruth

    Someone’s trying to clean up their image as a boyfriend swapper….

  • Wading

    Weird the ‘trannies’ comment was clearly not meant to be offensive but haters gotta hate
    @ace 11
    Hi. They did’nt date. It IS possible to go out places with members of the other sex but find out you have nothing in common and go your seperate ways.
    Its VERY common in Hollywood / high School it does’nt mean they hit the sheets. No matter what Lainey and her sheeple say.

  • Julie

    She said she’s only had four boyfriends.. she didn’t say she’s only slept with four guys…

  • CLu

    “I’ve never been with anyone that’s not a boyfriend.” — Quite a loaded statement there… Hmmm? Up to your own interpretation but I think she’s trying to say that she doesn’t sleep around.

    The tranny statement can be taken with humor or insult… also up to your own interpretation. I don’t care about overly PC bullsh*t so she can say what she wants.

  • @kami#33

    I don’t think she had a boyfriend in high school. She lookes awful at the time, her teeth and nose weren’t fixed at the time.

  • @MaisyRL

    Oh look its#34 who cant stay away from ANY Blake post to spew her innuendos, misconstructions and false s***t. What took you so long?
    For the uninformed see the unclear out of range Thanksgiving family photo post over Xmas from a random instagram posted on Twitter, which #34 insisted Blake and/or her family had sent to random publications as part of her WTF campaign

  • Carrie

    I crack up with some of the haters. Blake is awesome. She looks stunning!

  • wtf

    What a pretentious and dumb airhead. Hoping for girls or trannies? What`s wrong with this woman? But with that face it`s not too far fetched to hope for that…
    Leaving that hotel in Italy ( with Leo ) was a `cooking school field trip`? Come on! 4 boyfriends? If there was only 4 man she was involved with she wouldn`t feel the need to put it out there like that. Like she said it wasn`t her on those photos. Yeah, we will take her word for it again.
    She doesn`t have a stylist ( clearly ) but you would think she has a publicist but ( clearly ) doesn`t or not a good one.

  • torrance

    it sounds just really pretentious to name drop designers like that. even if that was the reality, id hold back on doing it. this is why people hate gwyneth, because she does it constantly and has an entire web site built around doing just that. it’s just not attractive to masses who cannot afford the stuff theyre hocking, wearing, or getting fashion advice from.

  • criztina

    i dont think she dated ryan gosling.
    she had a bf for a long time before Penn. His name is KELLY BLATZ.

  • jesslyn

    @Reese: your hair would be so good too if u had the best stylists in the world working on it.

  • hannah

    @kami: she did, his name is Kelly Blatz. and he’s pretty cute too.

  • austin

    saying u dont have a stylist but then u consult with “anna” and “christian” .. basically u do have stylists because she’s consulting with fashion experts. it’s not like she’s asking candice, her non-famous bestie from grade school.

  • Liz

    Shes had 4 boyfriends. The Disney actor, Penn, Leo and Ryan Reynolds.
    I also am shocked by her use of the word tranny. Her intentions were pure but that word is so offensive.

  • OMG

    My problem with this girl it’s that she always sounds SO FAKE.

    she always tries so hard to sell herself as a “good girl”… Honey is you if you have to mention it in every interview, is because you’re not.

    Always saying: “I don’t want to be going to a club and taking off my panties”, however she took those nude pics.

    Now says: I’ve never been with anyone that’s not a boyfriend. If I spend time with a man, it’s because there’s somebody that I know well who has been a friend for a while.” But she wasn’t friend of Leonardo dicaprio however she f*ck with him all summer, . Also applies to Ryan Gonsling and probably Ben affelck and probably Ryan Reynolds during the filming of Green Lantern.

    Girl You Don’t fooling anyone here.

  • mkhay

    Uh oh, she said the word trannie

    The PC police will be all over that.
