Green Lantern
With her new movie Green Lantern out this month, Blake Lively chatted exclusively to InStyle about superheroes, her career and her travels!

Blake Lively talks exclusively to InStyle about her new movie Green Lantern - co-starring Ryan Reynolds - plus reveals all about her career and her travels...

Tell us about your character Carol in Green Lantern?

Carol is a really appealing character in this film, and it’s rare because you never see a female get to also be the hero. She’s not a damsel in distress. Hal [Ryan Reynolds] doesn’t swoop in and save her. Often she pushes him. He’s inherited a lot of responsibility, and he’s not sure he wants it. He’s not a superman – he’s just a man, and he has his weaknesses.

He has an incredible amount of potential, but there are certain things that life has thrown at him like the loss of his father that give him these inhibitions and she’s there to push him. But they’re also rivals in the air. They’re both fighter pilots and they battle each other.

What were they up to?
Blake Lively and Penn Badgley have been dating since the end of 2007. The couple have known each other since they were 12 years old, and since they started working together...they just can't get enough of each other. Although they havn't moved in together they were spotted a lot in 2008-2009 but not as much now. Rumour has it that Blake hooked up with their Gossip Girl co-star Chace Crawford, every one thought it was a load of rubbish...but now it could be a possibility. Penn and Blake were spotted together in Dec 09 and then again in Jan 2010...but thats the last we have saw them together so far. On February the 7th 2010, Chace,Ed and Jessica flew out to take part in the Celeb beach bowl in Miami along with Kellan Luntz, Audrina Partrige, Taylor Lautner, Eric (chace's manager)etc. But what we didn't get was why was Blake there? There were photos of her and shirtless Chace together on a balcony at the Fontanibleu Hotel, one of the onlookers even said [i]"They were out on the balcony, chace was flirting with her and she seemed to like it. And then they disapeared inside their room for a while they then came out and Blake was wearing only a robe and Chace's hair was all scruffy....

The 21-year-old actress has been on enjoying her time off from work and exclusively told JustJared.com about her hiatus.

“I’ve traveled all over Asia,” Blake shared, “I went to Thailand, India and Maldives. I stayed at the most incredible place in the Maldives called Soneva Gili and you have to take a boat to get to your glass-bottom hut in the middle of the water. It’s gorgeous!”

Ms. Lively didn’t stay idle while trekking through Asia. “I’m half-way to getting my scuba license and I went to cooking school in Thailand,” she shared. “I never get time to do things like cook and travel, so now I have two months off and I’m trying to take advantage of it as much as I can.”

When asked if she took back any sourveniers from Asia, Blake told JustJared.com, “Yeah, we actually rode elephants barefoot and washed them one-on-one in the river. It’s the most incredible thing I’ve ever done. I got a painting that an elephant made for me and that is definitely my most prized possession. And some beautiful jewelry from India!”

The Kooba Tess Hobo is a youthful, classy new style which comes in Luggage (brown), Sky (dusty blue — shown), and White.

Kooba always looks like Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively to me — it’s no wonder they named a bag after the young star. The look is sleek and yet complicated; pretty, yet utilitarian. At 16.5″W x 9″H x 6.5″D it is large enough to hold your wallet, camera, and makeup bag, yet dainty enough to carry in the evening.

The bag features luxurious, soft grained leather, double straps and a zip top. The buckles and hardware come in silver or goldtone, according to color choice, and there are several interior pockets.

The Kooba Tess Hobo is available from Bloomingdales for $575.00.

“I’m a crazy person”

The 21-year-old became an absolute star over night because of her role as Serena van der Woodsen in “Gossip Girl” - a role that the blonde girl from California still has to get used to.

BUNTE:In the show “Gossip Girl” it’s about an it-qlique attending a New Yorker elite school. How have you experienced your school days?

BLAKE: My time attending High School in Los Angeles was like this bad teenie movie with Freddie Prince Jr. Very american! I was a cheerleader, class president, part of the choir and dressed as a bulldog mascot for sports tournaments. I always took extra courses whenever I had the chance to and you could find me at student meetings in a burger restaurant friday evening. Many of my class mates were often mean to me but I loved the school!

BUNTE: Your character Serena can relate to that. Are there any other similarities?
BLAKE: While I’m a silly, crazy person, Serena’s often characterised as being serious. That’s why I have the most fun when Serena shows her dark side.

The show “Gossip Girl” made Blake Lively a superstar. In OK! the newcomer talks about advantages and many disadvantages.

Hot, cheeky and provocative. That’s how the actors of the US hit show “Gossip Girl” are. “We don’t even have that much in common”, Blake says of her character Serena van der Woodsen. “She’s from the New Yorker Upper East Side, I’m from a hicktown in California. I have never been a big party girl!”

Words that you would never hear from a real “Gossip Girl”. The life of the young, pretty actors is especially about partying, flirts and fashion. They wear the newest clothes and set trends. For Blake that’s pretty convenient. “I really like fashion and I get to meet many amazing designers through the show.” She’s even fonder of the shooting location. “I’ve discovered New York for me, it’s so energetic and creative here.”

Despite all the advantages the hype around the show is gradually affecting Blake. “I pretty much don’t experience the life of an it-girl, I work 16 to 18 hours a day with four weeks of holidays a year! And afterwards I work on movies for another three...

They have been celebrities back at home in the US for a long time now. Whenever Blake Lively (21) and Penn Badgley (22) go somewhere, crowds of fans form, paparazzis keep their cameras ready, film crews even film the walk to the coffee store. “Gossip Girl” (Prosieben, Sundays, 16 o’clock) is the name of the series that has made a young couple a “hot ticket” of the US-TV. Matching real life they also play a couple of the New Yorker High Society. A conversation about love, gossip and desire for fashion.

IN: “Gossip Girl” translates to something like chatter box. Do you also like gossip personally?
BLAKE: Everyone likes to tell stories. And gossip is, of course, even more exciting, if you know the people. But if the gossip’s about yourself, it’s very weird. They once wrote about me that I had been clubbing with some guys. At the moment I’m a victim and that hurts because it’s not me who does something like that. Such stories are just unfair.

IN: Penn, how’s your relationship to Gossip?

Blake Lively was raised in sunny Burbank, California. In high school, she was an AP student, class president, a member of her school’s choir, and a cheerleader. That’s why it’s so ironic that the all-American girl now portrays Serena van der Woodsen, a jaded NYC socialite on “Gossip Girl.” In Allure’s May issue, the 21-year-old actress reveals that while she does enjoy some of the superficial things that surround her character — like Chanel handbags — she’d never want Serena’s life.

… On Why She Feels Like a Tranny Most of the Time
“I feel like a tranny a lot of the time. I don’t know, I’m … large? They put me in six inch heels, and I tower over every man. I’ve got this long hair and lots of clothes and makeup on. I just feel really big a lot of the time, and I’m surrounded by a lot of tiny people. I feel like a man sometimes.”

… On Her Image As a Blonde Fashion Queen
“I’m blonde, and I have a small dog, so I try to avoid looking like a piece of bubble gum.”

“Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively is one of television’s most beautiful actresses, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have her own share of insecurities.

In an interview in the May issue of Allure magazine, on sale April 21, the blonde bombshell admits to feeling a little less than ladylike some days.

“I feel like a tranny a lot of the time,” she said. “I don’t know, I’m … large? They put me in six-inch heels, and I tower over every man. I’ve got this long hair and lots of clothes and makeup on. I just feel really big a lot of the time, and I’m surrounded by a lot of tiny people. I feel like a man sometimes.”

Lively may feel like that, but her looks and style are far from it. Indeed, these days, you can’t open a fashion magazine without seeing her on the red carpet, looking amazingly beautiful. But while she is often compared to other blonde Hollywood fashion queens, don’t think she is just your average tween queen.

“I’m blonde, and I have a small dog, so I try to avoid looking like a piece of bubble gum,” she told Allure.

Contains strong sex & language, and drug, suicide and self harm references.

THE PRIVATE LIVES OF PIPPA LEE is a drama about a woman reflecting upon all the varied episodes in her life as she watches her much older husband become more senior. It was classified ‘15’ as it contains strong sex and strong language, and references to sex, drugs, suicide and self harm.

A sex scene with female orgasm from unseen genital touching occurs at a late stage of the film. During one reflective scene, Pippa Lee recalls a stills shoot with BDSM themed dress. There is mimed spanking using a carpet beater and some wearing of collars, chains, and maids outfits. On another occasion, a reference is made, ‘stick your finger up his ass while he’s coming’. Guidelines at '15' state that 'sexual activity may be portrayed but without strong detail. There may be strong verbal references to sexual behaviour'.

The suicide references are to a scene of a shooting where a gun is paced in the mouth, but the firing is not seen. We also see the aftermath of self harm to the forearms with a disposable razor. At '15' Guidelines allow for representations...

Seen and heard

Now that ‘Gossip Girl’ has wrapped for the season, Penn Badgley has time to pursue other passions — like beer pong.

At the show’s wrap party at the Bowery Hotel, Badgley couldn’t get his fill of the game.

Girlfriend Blake Lively “kept trying to get him to leave, but he was so focused on the game that he begged her to stay,” says an eyewitness. Penn’s pleading won out, as he was allowed to perfect his ball-tossing until 1:30 a.m.

So, Blake Lively ended up remaining till late with her boyfriend Penn.

Patrick McMullan
Party photographer Patrick McMullan plays himself in an episode of Gossip Girl airing Monday night, March 30.

“I’m probably getting more attention from the coming attraction than on the show itself,” Mr. McMullan told the Daily Transom, referring to the brief half-second during which his mug appeared in a preview that aired last Monday. Since then, his many friends and colleagues—many of them Gossip Girl devotees—have been ringing him to say “Congrats!”

Since the show premiered in 2007, all sorts of prominent New Yorkers have made cameos: author Jay McInerney, designer Michael Kors, socialite Tinsley Mortimer and New York Times theatre critic Charles Isherwood, just to name a few. And so Mr. McMullan, who has been documenting New York society since the 1980s, seemed like a natural choice.

In the episode, Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) throws a birthday party for Little J (Taylor Momsen). “To make her feel liked and all that,” explained Mr. McMullan. But an intimate 16th birthday party soon turns into a huge society event after a few of the city’s social find out that Ms. van der Woodsen is hosting. According to Mr....

Spotted: S and B at Rogue Tomate filming MOnday night’s season finale of “Gossip Girl,” discussing college, Chuck Bass, and shoes!

Stars Leighton Meester and Blake Lively were having trouble getting in and out of the very high heels the scene called for. “They needed crew members to help get them on,” our on-set spy dished. “The girls also had a lot of trouble walking in them.”

Which explains why the two starlets immediately slipped into their Uggs the moment the cameras turned off. Once comfy, Leighton played with her BlackBerry while Blake talked shop with the camera crew and costume designers.

Lively was overheard asking about a pair of Stuart Weitzman heels that an extra had been wearing a day before. The blond fashionista was upset when she heard they were the actress’ own. “Man, I loved them,” she sighed. We’re sure that Lively, like her character Serena Van Der Woodsen, will find a way to get what she wants!

THE PRIVATE LIVES OF PIPPA LEE Directed by Rebecca Miller

Starring Robin Wright Penn, Alan Arkin, Keanu Reeves, Monica Bellucci, Julianne Moore, Winona Ryder, Mario Bello & Blake Lively

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM–(Marketwire - March 19, 2009) - From all outward appearances, Pippa Lee (ROBIN WRIGHT PENN) leads a charmed existence. An anchor of feminine serenity, she is the devoted wife of an accomplished publisher (ALAN ARKIN) thirty years her senior, the proud mother of two grown children, and a trusted friend and confidant to all who cross her path. But as Pippa dutifully follows her husband to a new life in a staid Connecticut retirement community, her idyllic world and the persona she has built over the course of her marriage will be put to the ultimate test.

In truth, the gracious woman of the present day has seen more than her fair share of turmoil in her past - an array of erotic misadventures, a diet-pill-addicted mother and the suicide of an exotic rival - until finding love and security in a family of her own. Embarking on a bittersweet journey of self-discovery, along with help from a new, strange and soulful acquaintance (KEANU...

If he ever gives up acting, Gossip Girl hunk Penn Badgley, 22, has a career he can fall back on: Dogsitter! After wrapping a scene with co-star Kelly Rutherford, Penn stuck around to take his 21-year-old girlfriend Blake Lively’s maltipoo, Penny, for a walk while she filmed at NYC’s Russian Tea Room.

“They can’t wait for the weather to warm up so they can go to the dog park,” a pal of the couple tells OK!.

The actress recently caused quite a stir while filming her hit TV show, when her character Serena, was arrested outside the Russian Tea Room. Many people thought it was actually Blake herself getting arrested! Guess she’s a better actress than we all thought!

It’s been a heart-wrenching month for fans of the CW Network’s sexily subversive drama Gossip Girl while TV’s hottest show took a brief hiatus. But now Blair, Serena, Chuck Bass and Co. are back — and on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone. To get the dirt on what it’s like starring as beautiful young people in New York while being beautiful young people in New York, Jason Gay hung out with the cast on set and after hours, tagging along to their favorite drinking haunts — where the beverage of choice is the potent Golden Monkey — and catching the action as the show filmed on the streets of the Big Apple. (Get up close and personal with the crew for yourself with our exclusive footage from Terry Richardson’s steamy shoot, above, plus exclusive photos from the session.)

“The outdoor sets were pretty fun, because the fans come out,” Gay says. “There were many kids from local private schools, foreign tourists and tons of paparazzi. It’s very strange to see a mob of paparazzi photograph Blake and Serena in character as they film an outdoor scene. It’s as if the reality of the show exists behind two lenses — in real time and TV time. All...

It’s safe to say that Gossip Girl’s reigning hottie couple, Penn Badgely and Blake Lively, are the cutest couple ever!

OK! caught up with the pair over Super Bowl Weekend at the Direc TV Celebrity Beach Bowl party in Tampa, Florida, where they shared some of their favorite things to do as a couple.

“Umm…we like to go out to dinner!” Blake told OK! with a smile on her face. “I would say the most amazing experience we have together is living in the city,” Penn adds. “It’s the time in between when you’re walking from a restaurant to a theater or whatever. Just being able to live in New York City and be young, it’s an amazing gift to share that.”

The pair may love NYC, but the two seemed happily cozy in Tampa, where OK! learned that the two hunkered down at the Seminole Hard Rock and Casino Hotel. But unlike other celebs who prefered to party the weekend away, Blake and Penn kept things low key, staying in their room, enjoying private dinners and going to bed early. (uh-huh!)

As we know, Blake loves britney spears a lot and so she wouldn`t miss her concert, she attended it with boyfriend; Penn badgley.

"Loved watching Britney Spears’s Circus tour stop in Newark. Loved Perez Hilton’s intro.

Britney looked great. Those supposed VIP seats were non-existent, yes I could just about smell her from being so close but standing for 3 hrs with all that screaming around me would take some getting use to. Blake Lively, Penn Badgley, Leigh Lezark were my section taking in all the action!"

Kelly blatz said that He and Blake were and still are close!

Just a few years back, the Burbank, California, native was working at Starbucks, waiting for his big break – and dating “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively, whom he took to their high school prom. And, he said, they’re still close.

"We’ve been childhood friends and she’s amazing," Kelly said. "I’m so happy for her. We talk every now and again — she’s in New York, so it’s hard."

But for now, it sounds like Kelly’s more concerned with his work than going after girls – and his rock band, Capra, which he fronts.

Blake Lively says Gossip Girl is holding back her movie career.

The 21-year-old actress - who plays Serena van der Woodsen in the hit TV show - says she has been so busy filming the teen drama that it’s been impossible to take up film offers coming her way.

She explains, “We shoot nine months out of the year, so there are so many films I can’t do.

“On my latest movie I would go and take a day off from Gossip Girl in New York and go to Connecticut and shoot that and then come back the next day. And they don’t really like to share you.”

Blake, only 21, recently became one of the youngest actresses to ever make the cover of American Vogue. Marie Claire caught up with her on the Gossip Girl set to talk puppy love, puppy dogs and how she almost turned down the role of Serena.

*What has Serena van der Woodsen been up to today?
I find out I’m throwing a surprise sweet-sixteen for Jenny. Then I find out that someone else is having a party on the same night. These are really serious issues we have to deal with!

*Are you surprised by the impact Gossip Girl has had?
Just the fact that it’s airing anywhere else is unbelievable. It feels like everybody’s playing a big hoax on us.

*And for you personally, it’s been an incredible rise. You’re 21 and you’re on the cover of American Vogue!
Yes, it’s like something homemade my mom did. It looks much better than if my mom made it but that’s what it feels like.

[b]*I read somewhere you almost turned down the show. Apparently you said, ‘If there are pet monkeys in coordinating outfits, that’s not something I’m going to want to be a part of.’ Where the hell did...

Blake Lively says she’ll only surround herself with people she trusts, so she doesn’t end up losing it like Britney Spears.

The 21-year-old actress, who plays Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl, insists she will try her best not to go down the same route as the Toxic singer.

She says, "I’m trying to avoid all the excessive aspects of this business. So many young actors make mistakes and they do it in front of the cameras."

"I mean Britney was dating a paparazzo! If she wasn’t Britney Spears, would he have been with her? That’s why it’s important to me to surround myself with people I trust."

"I’m still pretty normal,” Blake adds. "I don’t see myself as a celebrity. I like cooking - I’m a bit of a Nigella Lawson. I don’t hang out at nightclubs, although I enjoy going to cool restaurants. But reading in cafes is more my style."

"This is the happiest I’ve ever been." Blake says!

Did you have a group of girlfriends like the ‘sisterhood’ in the movie?
Blake Lively - I still do. I have a friend, my friend Jessica, who I've had since I was 3 years old and my friend Brittany who I've had since…7th grade. We can fight like no tomorrow and we can have these crazy times and prank, and go do nothing together and it's this great friendship because you have such a deep understanding of one another. We know each other so well inside and out that it's amazing.

Were you jealous because Alexis Bledel got to spend the summer in Greece?
Blake Lively - Well, I got to spend the summer in Cabo.

Do you play soccer like your character?
Blake Lively - Yes. I had two months of soccer training through trainers in Los Angeles and Canada. My brother-in-law took me to all the games with him and his friends, and I played with the other girls in Canada. I played for three years when I was young and I was absolutely horrible at it but I loved it. So, when they told me I'd have to learn how to play soccer I was so excited because it's such a fun sport to play.

As Serena van der Woodsen, the California native shines as a young woman whose return after a mysterious year away is the talk of the town. She gave us the scoop on the show!

Hollywood.com: How did you get the role?
Blake Lively: Josh Schwartz called me about it. Maybe he watched The Sisterhood, I don’t know. I hear a lot of fans of the Gossip Girl books had seen me, and maybe because I had long blonde hair, they were blogging, ‘She has to be Serena.’ He told me “I wrote the show for you. You have to do this. I will not give it to anyone else.” We sat down and we talked about it. I thought about it for a little while. It felt right. Josh has so much heart in everything he does, from his locations to the actors he uses, to the wardrobe, and that was very important to me. That's the reason I did the show.

HW: What intrigued you about the character? What kind of journey will it be for her?
BL: Serena is very complex. She was what you can call a bad girl before and now she's trying to be good. She's been pulled in all different angles, from her mom, to her brother, to her best friend to this new good guy, Dan, to Nate, who she still...

Blake on her favourite style icons: "My style has been totally influenced by Audrey Hepburn and Kate Moss equally—they’re such fashion icons. But Sienna Miller’s young urban style is also totally what I’m going for."

Blake on her favourite musicians: "My favorite music is Ray Charles for when I want to feel mellow, and Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake when I want something more funky."

Blake on what she would do if she wasn’t acting: "I would love to open my own interior decorating business…I grew up reading Martha Stewart and the William Sonoma catalog, I was never interested in things like Teen Beat."

Blake on how she developed her style: "Growing up, I was constantly borrowing clothes from my older sisters, or I’d pick out something from Urban Outfitters and my mom would tailor it to my size—I don’t think I ever dressed like a kid. Now that I’m on Gossip Girl, the wardrobe is so amazing and inspiring, it’s opened a whole new style gateway for me."
