Blake Lively Covers 'Marie Claire' July 2012

Blake Lively Covers 'Marie Claire' July 2012

Blake Lively is red hot in Balmain on the cover of Marie Claire‘s July issue, on newsstands, June 19.

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

On the public’s perception of her: “People like to draw parallels between my life and the scandalous stories on Gossip Girl. I dress the same as my character, so they think, She lives this life on and off set. I recently shared how many boyfriends I’ve had [four], and people were like, ‘That’s impossible!’ But it’s true. I’ve been with very few people. If I’m not with somebody who really excites or inspires me, then I’d rather be by myself.”

On preparing for her Savages role: “I went to the gun range and learned how to shoot a gun for the first time. It was awful. I asked myself, ‘Why were these things ever invented? But I did feel good that my first three shots were straight to the heart. It’s good to know – don’t mess with me in a gun battle.”

On why she doesn’t have a stylist: “Because I love fashion. It’s such an expression of self. I often see people and they look great, but I can identify who styled them. Every stylist has a signature. Maybe it sounds jerky, but I’m lucky to be on such a fashion-centric show [Gossip Girl]. There’s no designer I don’t have access to.”

    Yeah, I’m so sure that her first three shots went to the heart — because she’s Blake Lively and in her own little imagination everything goes her way.

  • EhyJJ

    She’s so HOT.

  • Callie

    Generic Blonde. No future.

  • LOL

    Blake is so interesting and versatile that they keep repeating the same question about no having a stylist in every interview…

  • in love

  • Laww

  • duh

    I don’t like her at all but it’s a great cover.

  • Yesss

  • bum

    Cannot stand her. Awful actress. She’s just another generic blonde. Nothing special like people think she is.

  • Gah!

    Love her!!!

  • Sayq

    @bum: I dont see how she is “another generic blonde” she has a very unique face, i cant mix her up with any other blondes to be honest. She looks different from them all which is a good thing.

  • Lori

    She’s generic in the sense that she was created in a cosmetic surgeon’s office. Per surgery she looked more like Wayne Gretzsky

  • LOL

    @Lori:
    I dont even like her ,but you need go to fix your eyes

  • OrtegaBlanca

    like Sherry implied I am dazzled that a mom can get paid $8969 in 4 weeks on the internet. have you read this page(Click on menu Home more information) http://goo.gl/BSsqx

  • Lori

    @LOL: Google her before and after shots….she’s had so much work done.

  • XOXO

    she’s a bad actress (let’s face it) but she’s a beautiful girl and has an amazing style!

  • crazyi8

  • Julie

  • people

    I like her! SHe is young and 4 is not that small of an amount for her age but I see her point that she is not like Serena in that way.

  • @Lori

    She was fine in high school

    Some of us go through the akward/geeky stage in looks. Can’t all be as breathtaking from childhood as you were.

  • Sean

    She wants to be somebody that excites her and inspires? Haha Give me a break. You’re with Ryan Reynolds. You just want to be with somebody that looks good without his shirt

  • Lori

    @@Lori: I did not say she was ugly! before or aftastic surgery. I said she was generic now, that does not mean ugly. And while I may not be breath taking in any sense of the word I still resemble myself many years after highschool.

  • tatiana

    she is beautiful inside and out. haters gonna hate though

  • wendy

    gorgeouuus!

  • I really don’t get it…..

    @OH:

    You too can have that with the right plastic surgeon. Seriously, check out her before photos. She was NOT attractive pre nose job and veneers.

  • Alaia

    She seems full of herself regarding the comments about not having a stylist. Honey, you’re not all that! Your style is mediocre.

  • Cleo

    Oooo can’t wait to see Savages! I like her hair much better in this shoot than the Bullet one!

  • Chucky

    @Lori:

    But when I saw her in the first sisterhood movie ,I though she was drop dead gorgeous,she’s very beautiful now and then

  • VioletRose

    Only four? So there’s Ryan Reynolds, Leo Dicaprio, Penn Badgley… who’s the other one?

  • Lua

    She is very generic indeed, her face is nothing special at all, cute yes, breathtaking no. Her body is hot though. But all the photoshoots, interviews are always the same, very boring.

  • Judsie

    Again that old story about her stylist. We know you work w/ Daman et his work is terrible thus your nonexistant style.

  • INTHKW

    She is a beatiful girl but she can’t act her way through a high school play and I don’t know how she keeps getting movie roles because she is a horrible actress. It must be her looks.

  • C

    I effing love her! She is a classic american beauty. But she has been saying about these four men in his life since the first season of GG (Penn, Leo, Ryan??)

  • andrea

    She has changed so much since she started gossip girl. I used to like her a lot but now it seems like she’s so full of herself, it’s quite annoying.

  • megan

    Blake is so beautiful!! She is def one of the most stunning woman I have ever seem!
