Blake Lively: 'Marie Claire UK' Cover Girl!

Blake Lively: 'Marie Claire UK' Cover Girl!

Blake Lively is seductive on the cover of Marie Claire UK for the October 2012 issue, out on newsstands September 6.

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

On her most treasured filming experience: “Honestly, Alan Arkin was one of the best love interests I’ve ever had. He was the most kind, fun and a challenge – because he was clearly very uncomfortable with the fact that I was 19 and he was 72.”

On being a fan of the Spice Girls: “When I was a child I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with the Spice Girls. I had the Buffalo shoes, a customised Baby Spice necklace —when I say custom made it was made out of plastic from the local mall – and a union jack dress.”

On fulfilling her dream of meeting the Spice Girls
: “Recently, I was in London and I stayed in my hotel most of the time because it was raining. But on the last night I went out for dinner. After I’d arrived, I was told a bunch of paparazzi had showed up. I thought, ‘that’s so weird. I’ve been left alone most of my stay – why are they bothering me now?’ But then someone told me it was because Victoria Beckham was in the same restaurant. I was like, OK, that makes sense. She’s a friend of mine and I would have said hello but I decided I didn’t want to bother her. Until that person then told me that she was there with I was like, I need to say hello! So, there you have it; I got to hang out with the Spice Girls. It was my lifelong dream. That’s it now. I can quit.”

  • cle

    She’s gorgeous!

  • kassi

    Jaysus what a mess! Jared, clean up your boards. Blake is beautiful.

  • KissThis

    This is one of the most gorgeous shoots I’ve ever seen. STUNNING

  • KissThis

    @Biskit: No she hasn’t. If you go back to the first Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants film, she looks exactly the same.

  • CC

    She looks stunning! The Marie Claire shoot is one of her best.

  • G

    So boring. Why would they even bother with all that Spice Girl stuff. She’s soooo boring.

  • kells bells

    she got a tasteful nose bob. big deal. it photographs better, but she was pretty before.

  • hs

    Wasn’t she just on the cover of the US Marie Claire? there’s nothing going on with her career right now. Why not feature women that actually have something to talk about other than their Spice Girl obsession.

  • kells bells

    The world does not revolve around America, darling. She has a movie coming out and a new Gucci fragrance.

  • hs

    what movie does she have that’s coming out?

  • Biskit

    @KissThis: Haha no she Doesn’t!

  • hs

    She has half a season of that craptastic show she’s on.

  • Derek

    I’d love to see this shot without all the photoshop. I’m really starting to hate airbrushing

  • S

    why can’t Leighton fans gtfo? does this article have anything to do with her? NO. stop being so bitter. Blake looks good but what’s new?

  • Jasmine

    She loves to brag about the famous people she knows. I used to defend her because she was so sweet and humble but she’s turned into this arrogant being whose life revolves around fashion and name dropping. It’s sad but disgusting at the same time.

  • Happy_Evil_Dude

    @hs: Savages is just about to come out in the UK. And that’s a UK magazine.

  • waoh

    She looks good. Shed better disguise her physical appearance with make up everyday too.
    I think some people in here see someone pretty and automatically think she’s a nice person when facts doesn’t show that.

  • Chace

    Its the same as the US layout and yes Savages is about to come out here in Britain, hence the shoot.

  • Barbara

    She’s fashion’s world sweetheart. Don’t you all assume she knows all the high profile designers and or the design companies owners and directors? It’s no name dropping. And please, since when Victoria Beckham is that staple name?
    This is an UK magazine, so I suppose she would talk about her experiences in UK.
    As for the bitter Leighton fans claiming she should have Blake’s career, what’s stopping her? Blake? I’m sure not. Stupidity? Probably as she’s mildly talented and can look pretty under a lot of makeup. So the only one in fault for her not having Blake’s career, is Leighton. Stop being bitter and move on. Maybe Leighton will accomplish what Blake did some day…

  • Chace

    Actually Leighton is doing fine. She has the Missoni and Vera Wang campaigns. Like Blake has done recent movies, some great some not, and has 2 more coming out this year I think.
    I just don’t understand why Leighton fans just don’t focus on her as she is a beauty too, and leave Blake alone.

  • K

    Flawless human being.

  • KLK

    Oh! Now, as I see from her ordinary pictures, she not only have fake boobs and nose, but her hair also looks poor, dull and lifeless. In today’s Hollywood plastic surgeries, hair extensions, airbrushing make you a beauty.

  • Go Blake!

    I love the print in the candids.

  • tallon

    boring, trite, and over-used. it would be nice if she stopped name-dropping all the time.
    also, she looks so much older than she is. she used to be really pretty, now she looks worn out.

  • Sigh

    Love her!

  • abby


  • speak the truth

    @KissThis, Please! It’s so obvious she’s had a nose job! r u her PR, or are you blind? Look at this:

  • @43

    Why do you care? What effect does it have on your life?
    PR or blind? Its not that serious. Focus your hate someplace else
