I think she will become a great actress.”

Lively, for her part, <a target="_blank" href="http://www.wwd.com/markets-news/chanel-gets-lively-3411642?module=today?src=nl/newsAlert/20110105\&browsets=473154269004" onclick="trackOutboundLink('article:page', 'www.wwd.com', '13106675', 'http://www.wwd.com/markets-news/chanel-gets-lively-3411642?module=today?src=nl/newsAlert/20110105\&browsets=473154269004')" onclick="trackOutboundLink('article:page', 'www.wwd.com', '13106675', 'http://www.wwd.com/markets-news/chanel-gets-lively-3411642?module=today?src=nl/newsAlert/20110105\&browsets=473154269004')" onclick="trackOutboundLink('article:page', 'www.wwd.com', '13106675', 'http://www.wwd.com/markets-news/chanel-gets-lively-3411642?module=today?src=nl/newsAlert/20110105\&browsets=473154269004')" onclick="trackOutboundLink('article:page', 'www.wwd.com', '13106675', 'http://www.wwd.com/markets-news/chanel-gets-lively-3411642?module=today?src=nl/newsAlert/20110105\&browsets=473154269004')" >says of the opportunity</a>: “How did Cinderella feel when she slipped on the glass slipper? How did Snow White feel when she met her Prince Charming? A dream come true is an understatement. I can say that I feel like the happiest, luckiest girl around."
