Back of Blake Wants You to Know She's Not a Piece of Bubble Gum Blake Lively and her very smoky eyes are on the cover of Allure's May issue, which is out on April 21. She's currently enjoying some time off with Penn, but before her hiatus she sat down with the magazine to chat about keeping her love life private and her image. Here's more: On her size: "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: "I'm blonde, and I have a small dog, so I try to avoid looking like a piece of bubble gum." On why she doesn't talk much about Penn: "You see people who will open up their relationships, who are very affectionate on the red carpet or are doing a reality show with each other, and their relationship just seems to crumble, so I decided to keep a vow of silence." On what she will say about her boyfriend: "He plays any instrument he picks up. He bought a piano, and then two months later you would think he was a concert pianist." It's great to see she's one gorgeous girl who doesn't take things too seriously. Her Gossip Girl costars are going to be busy during their Summer hiatus from the series, and Blake's sure to be back to work once she returns all rested from her trip.

SKC-Sparkle 8 years Why do the pretty girls think they look tranny? chocolate79 8 years I like Blake.. I like how she makes fun of herself, cute personality.. She is really one of the few young celebs who has her acts together and keep a low-key profile.. I hope to see more of her in other roles.. zeze 8 years ha...I just remembered Penn Badgley telling the 90210 girls to eat a burger! So true, I love her and Blair's bodies - hot in a non-anorexic way. clew001 8 years I really like Blake! She seems genuine and sweet. I actually think she is really pretty, but that cover of her makes her look cracked out. La-Tua-Cantante 8 years She does seem really down to earth and normal jenny_r 8 years She's got the tranny part right. dm8bri 8 years I think I'd be friends with her if I was famous. She's very...normal. And what she said about her stature is pretty funny - I often notice her height amongst her costars and wonder if it bugs her. There's nothing wrong with her appearance at all, it's just that most actors are teensy and the normal ones stand out. spicyaroma 8 years I don't think I've seen a worse cover before! bluestar 8 years That's so great she said that about feeling large. My best friend and I are two very tall women and we always joke about how we are giants when our 5'2" friends are around...it's true, you don't have to be overweight to feel large and in charge! ha ha jaan_black 8 years to piggyback on someone's comment above, her mouth is why I can't tolerate anything she's in...she's not photogenic imo, and her mouth looks like it's full of saliva all the time...u know the people that get those white balls in the corners of their mouth when they speak (gagging)...yeah, that's all lol Jillness 8 years I think she sounds like a nice girl. The cover looks awful. It almost seems like they put too much powder on to set the look. It looks so caked on, yet dull. She is so pretty, they must have worked really hard to make her face look that bad! bonniebonnie 8 years Don't really like that cover shot either. But can def. relate about feeling large. Being tall felt kind of alienating for a lot of my life. Now, I don't give a crap if you're shorter than me. Nitachequita 8 years Blake is so lovely, I never thought one could take a bad picture of her, but man those Allure pics make her look really crappy. qteepie 8 years Cute girl but the way she speak annoys the crap out of me.. it takes her like 20 years to get out a sentence SpicyWildflower 8 years Yes large, you don't have to be fat to feel oversized. ilanac13 8 years well i guess it's good to know that she's not one of those young hollywoods that will overly flaunt their relationship. it's typical for those not to last for the long term, so at least she's being private in the hopes that it'll keep them going strong. i had to laugh though about how she said that she feels like a tranny. it's a good description i suppose for what she means. zeggy 8 years I like Blake, she's a down to earth girl. I'm not a huge fan of the cover, but there are some gorgeous outtakes at the Allure magazine site. redchick152 8 years hear* redchick152 8 years not a huge fan of the pics, but i am a fan of hers. she really does seems like a young celeb that has her sh*t together. i love that she has a more normal body and isn't stick thin, you never here about her having wild crazy party nights. any 8 years i dont like the pics... and large?? isnt it just tall?? heatherhas 8 years I don't think the cover is flattering, but I like what she said about her "image".
