Blake Lively on Taking a Break from Acting: Having a Personal Life Has Been Nice

Blake Lively on Taking a Break from Acting: Having a Personal Life Has Been Nice

Blake Lively gets an extreme close up for this Elle magazine’s April 2014 feature.

Here’s what the 26-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On taking a hiatus from acting after Gossip Girl: “Having a personal life has been really nice. I’d been on Gossip Girl 10 months a year for six years, shooting 15-hour days, so I hadn’t had time to just be since I graduated from high school. It’s been nice to kind of settle into my own skin and work on things I really love.”

On her personal style: “The older I get, I guess I wear less sparkles. And I know that someday my knees are going to look like elephant knees. But for now, my hemlines are still pretty high.”

Boring horseface

Can’t stand when actors complain abou their job….if you think acting is ‘oh so hard’ and bla bla bla, go working in a mine.

She reminds me of Elaine Irwin

# 7

she has nothing to complain about except the fact that she is hideous up close

# 8

She looks so older than 26!

love her eyes

it would be great if she stopped trying so hard to be an actress and pursue what she excels at: being a model. she looks gorgeous in pictures. (when they don’t overdue her makeup).

I don’t think Blake is complaining here. She just sounds like a normal woman! These are very down to earth answers.

she would make an excellent stylist or model, given her height and figure and sense of fashion, but as an actress she’s pretty bad.

Please, she’s been repeating the same stuff for years, even before she was done with gossip girl!

@Tyla: Agree she sounds normal & anodyne to me.

She should stick to modeling

Having a personal life is great but your career comes first. Blake waited too long to get back in the acting. You can’t wait that long to have a career. She let ryan make her marry him when she should have waited until her career took off.

Someone asks you about not working for a few years, so waddya going to say? She’s not complaining; she’s just trying to spin it in a positive manner.

She’s been irrelevant since the end of the show (just like the other actors) so…..ok.
