Blake Lively Responds to Martha Stewart's Negative Comments on 'Preserve'

Blake Lively is responding to the negative comments that her idol Martha Stewart made about her new lifestyle website 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.”

    These two just love to talk about eachother and it’s obnoxious. Why would anyone want to be a fraud like Martha?

  • sigh

    oh sit down Blake and zip it. the pretense and a$$ kissing is reeking from this untalented girl. I wouldn’t buy a thing from her site, you can get better quality products at cheaper prices. Martha connects with her audience’s needs and budgets, that itself speaks enough.

  • Liz

    @Effy: i don’t think Martha wants to answer these questions tbh. The girl is blowing sunshine up her a-hole so she has to say something nice about Blake when she knows Preserve sucks.

    actress? JOKE OF THE CENTURY

  • Lydia

    Her husband pays the bills, who is she kidding? If she could get decent acting jobs, she wouldn’t have bothered with Preserve. Her career is in its death rattle and her husband’s isn’t far behind. Neither one has a speck of talent.

  • tim

    if she was a real actress she wouldn’t be doing this

  • xoxo

    I never liked her when she was on Gossip Girl because she can’t act and mumbles her way through lines. She’s not a good actress or entrepreneur because she can’t do both. Blake is lucky that she was born with a face that’s good for Hollywood despite the fact that she is extremely average looking. Preserve sucks.

  • Ew

    @Lydia: SHe has three careers, not two. One is the website, which has overwritten narratives from people who take classes like ‘Unleash the Writer within’ and people who believe they’re leading america into a new century with their search for “authenticity”.

    Two is acting. I do think Blake can be really good in roles but she needs to practice and take a bit more classes.

    Three is brand promoter. I think Guccin and Chanel paid her more than GG ever did.

    @Ew: Find someone decent to stan for.

    and surely the surgeon helped her a lot to get this look….

  • @loveyoublake

    I don’t get all this hate for this girl. She seems like a really nice person who’s not into the hollyweird lifestyle. I think people are just jealous!! You go Blake! Do your thing girl!! Haters will always hate!

    Love this gal. Do you Blake

    There is nothing wrong with Blake, Reese, Jen or any one branching out and pursuing something she is passionate in. Being an actress has opened up to a lot of opportunities and this website seems to be one of them. I applaud Blake and I hope she achieves a lot with her new ‘Preserve’ website.

  • Cari

    The problem with her and Goop’s website is that the average person can’t afford what they are promoting. I mean really $100 for a crate you can get for $15 at a Target? Oprah does it well with “Her Favorite Things”– a mixture of high end and affordable, luxury and practical. The Goopster and Blake do high prices and luxury. Makes them come off as out-of-touch and elitist.

    i think blake is lovely, but do agree she is a terrible actress. i get what she is trying to do with preserve and it is far different than martha stewart so i don’t get the connection there. both aren’t really likable woman. they come off as kind of cold and entitled

  • hah

    @xoxo: @xoxo: you do know that her face is far from natural right? if her and ryan have kids, theyre gonna have huge noses. blake will probably pay for her daughters rhinoplasty and boob job though, from one generation to the next, lol.

  • Yep

    “I will always be doing both, but one is going to be paying the bills better than the other.” MONEY! We know you are not making money as an actress, but your blog is BORING. I don’t think it will pay the bills.
    But don’t worry, I bet some of your silly fans will pay your bills. $$$

  • Claire

    Go Blake! Do what brings you joy!

    As for the haters, always gonna be bitter, envious, and jealous!
    Bless their hearts! LOL
