Blake Lively is looking hot in red on the cover of Marie Claire‘s July issue, on newsstands, June 19.
Here’s what the 24-year-old actress had to share with the magazine:
On the public’s perception of her:
“People like to draw parallels between my life and the scandalous stories on Gossip Girl. I dress the same as my character, so they think, She lives this life on and off set. I recently shared how many boyfriends I’ve had [four], and people were like, ‘That’s impossible!’ But it’s true. I’ve been with very few people. If I’m not with somebody who really excites or inspires me, then I’d rather be by myself.”
On preparing for her Savages role:
“I went to the gun range and learned how to shoot a gun for the first time. It was awful. I asked myself, ‘Why were these things ever invented? But I did feel good that my first three shots were straight to the heart. It’s good to know – don’t mess with me in a gun battle.”
On why she doesn’t have a stylist:
“Because I love fashion. It’s such an expression of self. I often see people and they look great, but I can identify who styled them. Every stylist has a signature. Maybe it sounds jerky, but I’m lucky to be on such a fashion-centric show [Gossip Girl]. There’s no designer I don’t have access to.”
“It’s definitely attractive when a man can dress well. What I love most is when someone, guy or girl, is effortless and has this old-timey sort of feel [that] you could take a snapshot of them and they could exist in any time period.”
Although the diva didn’t spill on any boy deets, it is a safe bet that Ryan Reynolds is one of those boys who “dresses well”.
Two couple began in fall of 20122, and since the two have been spotted together in various parts of the world. In recent news, the couple went to visit Ryan’s family in Vancouver for dinner.
On her passions:
“To be around me, you must love food or I’m the most obnoxious person you’ve ever met. I’m in a big cooking phase. That’s all I’ll talk about.”
