Blake Lively covers the March issue of Elle Magazine. I feel like she hasn’t done many magazines in the past year…? Maybe something last summer, but it’s nice that she doesn’t over-saturate the market with mag cover after mag cover, interview after interview. Blake knows the value of a little mystery. Blake knows the value of parceling out gossip nuggets to the bigger media outlets. Of course, Elle is not Vogue. But Elle still has millions of readers, and it’s one of the major fashion/beauty mags out there. This was a smart cover for Blake to do.
As for the photo shoot – it’s nothing special, although Blake’s crazy body is on full display. I’m sure the photo where she’s wearing the red swimsuit will get a lot of attention, but look at the shot of Blake in those skin-tight black pants. THAT ASS. My goodness. Anyway, you can see Elle’s slideshow here, and here are some highlights from Blake’s interview:
Blake on boyfriends: “I’ve had four boyfriends in my whole life,” she tells the mag, adding that she doesn’t sleep around. “I’ve never been with anyone that’s not a boyfriend. I didn’t have a boyfriend until I was 17.”
On “dates”: “I’ve never gone on a date. Maybe I’m too shy,” she says. “If I’ve ever had a man in my life, it’s because I know him well, and he really means something to me. I don’t take that stuff lightly. I’d rather be by myself than be spending any time or energy on somebody that I didn’t feel sure about.”
On her French-flavored summer romance with Leo DiCaprio: Lively, who next stars in the gritty flick Savages, plays coy about her summertime 2011 romance with DiCaprio, 37, with whom she was first photographed in Europe. The actress tells ELLE she was already living in the south of France for the summer, renting an apartment and enrolling in a month-long French language course. “I was in school every single day!” Lively explains. “I’d get off, and, you know, we’d go on a boat in my harbor in my little village, and there’d be people hiding in a bush. Then people said, ‘There’s photos of you coming out of some hotel.’ I was on a school field trip! And my friend at the time,” she says, without naming DiCaprio, “joined the school field trip, and we were walking down the street.”
Getting hit on: “I had a few strangers hit on me!” she marvels. “Some guy acted like he liked my hat. Another guy acted like he liked my shoes!” They’re staring at your derrière, saying, ‘Hey, I really like your hat.’ Come on, dude!”
On not having a stylist: “When I’m going to an event, I’ll send Christian (Louboutin) a picture of my outfit and say, ‘What shoes do you think I should wear with this?’”
On kids: “I hope to have a few girls one day. If not girls, they better be trannies. Because I have some amazing shoes and bags and stories that need to be appreciated.”
On a report that she and Ryan Reynolds are looking for an apartment on Fifth Avenue: “Newspapers say a lot of stuff, don’t they? Though I wish I could afford half the places that I hear I’m looking at. Sign me up!”
What is with women talking about the sexual orientation of their real or imaginary children? Dame Gwyneth was yammering on and on about Apple hopefully being a “lipstick lesbian” and now Blake is dropping the word “tranny” to describe her dreams for sons who love clothes?
As for the whole “four boyfriends” thing – sure. She’s had four boyfriends. She’s only slept with four guys. I guess I believe her…? The question I have isn’t about the number as much as it’s about the timing and potential overlap. Like, WHEN did she first sleep with Leonardo? Was it when she was still with Penn Badgley? Also: “I’d rather be by myself than be spending any time or energy on somebody that I didn’t feel sure about.” The voices in Jennifer Lopez’s head just started hissing.
