Blake Lively Gushes About Ryan Reynolds, Defends Powerful Women in 'Vogue' August 2014

Blake Lively is totally one with nature on the cover of Vogue magazine’s August 2014 issue.

Here’s what the 26-year-old actress, who is launching her own lifestyle website, had to share with the mag:

On the backlash she may receive about her lifestyle website: “I’m sure there will be plenty of people who will say horrible things. I’m sure this interview will be picked apart. But you can’t worry about it. There have been so many things written about me that are untrue and horrifying. I can’t even believe that my family has to read this stuff. You just have to do what makes you happy, because you’ll never get a unanimous vote. People like to gossip. They bond over it. They don’t bond over complimenting famous people. I’m always the first person to defend Gwyneth Paltrow. Or any woman in a position of power, like Martha Stewart or Oprah, who gets burned. Because they have paved the path for so many other women who are doing something they believe in.”

On how Martha Stewart saved her wedding: “Our wedding was becoming a disaster, and we didn’t know what to do, so we called Martha! She said, ‘Don’t worry. I’ll handle it.’ She sent her team down to save us. And then she called her friends who have a home in South Carolina and set us up at the most amazing getaway. This is the day of our wedding!”

On hubby Ryan Reynolds: “He’s a part of it because everything we do in life we do together. If I’m working on a movie, he helps me with my character; I do the same with him. Picking out a coffee table. What we’re going to eat. He’s a beautiful writer—he’s written a lot of stuff for us. And he’s got a great barometer and he knows me, so he will tell me if it’s not as good as it can be. He’s going to be a great father and leader and patriarch—he’s so meant to be all of those things. The fact that he lived so much before we got together, he’s the exact realized person that he should be. And so I get to share my life with the person he’s become, and we get to grow from there.”

    Well girl, u cant pass on Wenstein casting couch, shag Di Caprio to get more famous and expect people not to say bad things about u. SIck and tired of these ‘celebs’ who complain about what they read in gossip mags or websites.
    And what has she accomplished tobe featured on Vogue again? She must have a thing on Wintour.

    She looks great!

    For the haters hating. At least she’s an actress. Go hate on the Kardashian cover, who got it by accomplishing nothing and having a name for basically nothing. Thanks!

    @Bee: You´re righ about that! I can see her appeal when she was on Gossip Girl, but what has she done since then? is walking the red carpet a job now? so… she went from being an actress to being a socialite? because after the massive failure of Green Lantern she hasn´t done much.

    Being an actress and being a successful and talented actress are two different things.

    She also talks a lot about her film the Age of Adaline (with Ellen Burstyn whom I love). JJ just picked to the talking points that would get the most reaction!

    No surprise that Lainey and her minions would be having kittens over this.
    Scrar Jo can make insensitive remarks about Israel but shes a fave.
    Olivia Munn can beard or all and sundry and she’s sexy

    I stopped buying that magazine when they put Kim & Kanye on the cover. That was the last draw. Never again. Trash.

    seriously? Says:

    Why the hell is she on vogue? What thespian performance of a masterpiece is she promoting? To the Blake stans don’t say “Age of Adeline” because you’re supposed to be talented before you deserve a vogue cover. Why does vogue put her on for literally no reason at all? Cause she’s Ryan’s wife and a fixture on the fashion scene? GTFO. don’t complain Blake when you’re not even talented enough to be in vogue in the first place, you’re basically asking to be scrutinized because you are no where near on par to be a part of any of these prestigious publications. She’s such a joke. This woman should thank her plastic surgeon, her family of actors, Leo dicaprio, and Reynolds for her getting this far in hollywood cause this girl deserves no merit. Leighton Meester is 1000x more talented and naturally beautiful than Miss Plastic Fantastic and has not gotten a vogue cover yet so that definitely shows how much of a fluke this girl really is. And to the Stan that wants to bring up kimye, kanye persuaded Anna FOREVER to let Kim have a vogue cover before his wish came true, this girl is handed a vogue cover without any persuasion at all, big difference.

    Blake Says:

    Lainey Gossip has great comment on her site about my vogue cover. Yes, I’m only marginally beautiful but it doesn’t matter because I’m tall, blond and beautiful therefore I deserve all these things without really working for it.

    @19 Says:

    Well said! Also, why I would want lifestyle tips from someone who wasn’t even able to plan her own wedding?

    K Says:

    My real probelm with this is that she followed Lupita’s cover! Women of colour always have to achieve boatloads to end up on vogue but someone like Blake just gets it handed to her? that’s really unfair. There should be a standard for all women to get on vogue with no exceptions. You shouldn’t just be friends with someone and get to ride on that. There should be real criteria implemented so that it’s fair. Do you know how many actresses deserve to be on Vogue’s August issue more than Blake? I can think of ten at the top of my head.

    Amy Says:

    Seriously? How much is Harvey paying for these covers???

    Where is Kerry Washington’s cover? Viola Davis? Octavia Spencer?

  25. 25
    K Says:

    It’s the age issue too. So shouldn’t it at least be a woman who’s in her 40s? There must have been a shortage on women 40+ who would be on the cover….so much hate. This is actually ridiculous
