Blake Lively Responds to Martha Stewart's Negative Comments on 'Preserve'
“I mean, it’s stupid, she could be an actress!” Martha told the Huffington Post. “Why would you want to be me if you could be an actress. I just did a movie yesterday, though—I can’t even tell you about it—but I want to be Blake Lively.”
In her response (via E! News), Blake says she thinks she can be both an actress and an entrepreneur.
“I want to have my own path professionally and even as she said, I’m an actress,” Blake said. “I’m doing something totally different so now I sort of have two careers going on and it’ll be interesting to see how it all pans out. But really what it is, is I have two passions. And I think ultimately, I will always be doing both, but one is going to be paying the bills better than the other.”
“Who doesn’t want to be Martha Stewart?” she added. “Martha Stewart has been a huge inspiration to me my entire life. She’s a huge source of inspiration for my mom. She’s how I came to know and love Martha. I always say that Martha Stewart Living is the only magazine I ever had growing up. I never had Tiger Beat or any of that stuff.”
