Photos and Interview of Blake Lively's W Magazine December 2008 Issue

Blake Lively Gets Sexy and Patriotic For W

Blake Lively looked glamorous in red, white, and blue on the December issue of W magazine. She's promoting her two upcoming indie films, Elvis and Annabelle and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee along with Gossip Girl as always. In the interview, Blake opened up about how her family helped her pursue acting and her relationship with Leighton Meester. Here are highlights:

  • On her supposed rivalry with Leighton: "I’ve never really had a competitive relationship in any work situation. The media is always trying to pit us against each other, I guess because it’s just not interesting to say, 'Everyone gets along; everybody just works 18-hour days and goes home to sleep.' That’s not fun to read, I guess."
  • On how she began acting: "My mom and dad always taught acting, so instead of getting me babysitters, they would just bring me to class. And I’m a naturally shy person, so it really helped. I would’ve just been hiding under the table, pulling on my mother’s dress if I hadn’t been in their classes. It forced me out of my shell."
  • On her career: "I’ve been learning as I’m going along. I thought, OK, I’ll try a movie. And I was loving films, so I thought, No, I don’t want to try TV. But now I’m loving being on the show more than I ever could have imagined. It has been just the most amazing experience anybody could ever ask for. It’s such a blessing."
  • Blake also admitting to loving Serena's wardrobe, and we're sure that's just one of the many reasons she's enjoying her time as a TV star.

She's very pretty, but these photos don't do her justice. I can't decide whether I like her or not. She just doesn't seem like a great actress to me :shrug:

to be honest i don't really care for her - but maybe she's growing on me a little bit. i think that perhaps she's realizing who to behave less like the star of a show and more like a seasoned actress so i could start to like her more.

I'm over her. She's just blah... except I really do like her hair.

it's not that her body is twisted in a weird way or the top is too tight, it's 100% bad photoshop job all the way. that person should be fired. oh and sylviamcdanyel i love your avatar, haha

wow, she is a terrible model - can't she do anything good with her eyes? I looove the cover, though, especially when you cover up her face. haha, sorry to be so harsh, but I really don't like the way she looks or acts...

I'm starting to get sick and annoyed of her, no offense Blake, I think it's Serena's character that is just so boring and blah. But I don't understand how underrated Leighton Meester is compared to Blake.

This girl is amazing and I think she'll be sticking around. I have a feeling Gossip Girl will be around a while. Also, I feel as though her and Leighton Meester probably have a good work relationship. It the one she has with Penn Badgley that is the phony one.

I really like blake lively. she seems down to earth and very sweet. these pictures are not her best though.

She is beautiful but bad photos. Did she piss off someone at W?! They chose THAT for the cover? The dress/top is too tight, and squeezes her in an unflaterring way. Blake has LEGS....a shot with those gams would be way better!

she isn't drop dead gorgeous, but she does have some nice qualities and is attractive enough. she's very likable in the traveling pants movies...not too bad for her generation.

It looks like she has a Barbie arm :)

These pictures are kinda boring, the cover looks weird, i think it's the arm and her head looks photoshopped.

She looks pretty, but has no neck in the first pic - like photoshop gone wrong. From the interview she seems cool and I doubt her and Leighton don't get along, I've seen a lot of outtakes from the show and they seem friendly with each other.

I love her on GG, but actually don't think she's pretty at all.

she's very pretty, but does she really only have this one facial expression?

The pictures are not that good. The cover makes her look like she has a big head in comparison to her body. I do enjoy her on GG though.
