Will forever-pantless Blake Lively do Playboy?

fp_4236992_lively_premiere_nyc_121709

I read this report over the weekend, and I found it a little… odd. The whole thing seems to have started in the current issue of the National Enquirer, which claims that Blake Lively has approached Playboy with an offer to pose nude. That in and of itself is sketchy, but the added twist is that Blake is asking Playboy to pay her $2.5 million for the pleasure. Now… why would she do this? She’s got a solid-to-hot career on television and she’s slowly breaking into films. She’s one of the more interesting girls on the red carpet, and she doesn’t really have any scandals around her, save for the fact that the girl will never wear pants. But that’s a plus in the industry! So why do Playboy? Because her mommy thinks it might benefit her career!

“Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively wants to shed her teeny-bopper image – by shedding her clothes for “Playboy”!

And she’s asking a whopping $2.5 million to bare it all for the cameras!

The 22-year-old actress — who plays Serena van der Woodsen on the hit CW show — started to consider posing nude after making the movie “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee” over a year ago, sources revealed to The ENQUIRER.

In the film she wore kinky bondage clothing and had a nude scene with Alan Arkin.

“‘Playboy’ had already been calling her — she figures a ‘Playboy’ spread now will really give her some heat in her career,” said a source.

Blake’s family is divided over whether she should do the photo shoot if “Playboy” meets her high price. “Blake’s mom has been in the business a long time, and she knows Kim Basinger and other actresses really benefited from posing for ‘Playboy’ early in their careers,” said the source.

“But her dad Ernie is old-school. He says, ‘Over my dead body!’”

Blake’s reps deny that the starlet wants to pose for “Playboy,” but the source insists it’s part of her plan to break away from her “Gossip Girl” image.

“The show has been a hit with teens, but she says she doesn’t want to get lumped in with the Jonas Brothers!” added the source.

“Posing nude would certainly distance her from her tween fans and put her in the adult world.”

Is Blake Lively’s fan base tween girls? Do tween girls really watch Gossip Girl? I though only adult women and gay men watched Gossip Girl. And that’s Blake’s fan base, plus a healthy dose of perverts who have taken note of her constant pantlessness. So… in that respect, Blake would be opening herself up (get it?) to a new market – the mass market of heterosexual men who haven’t yet noticed that she’s constantly pantless and, oh by the way, she’s got absurdly perky breasts. And if she can pull down $2.5 million, sure. Why not? If I looked like Blake, I might consider it.

    Them are fake boobalas. Too spherical. There’s perky and there’s Nerfy.

    Great body but a total butterface. Her lower face looks 45 yr-old’s. Is Playboy really a career booster? It will get you noticed but possibly for the wrong reasons (depending on the individual). Either way, meh. Blake bores me anyway.

  3. lucy2 says:

    I kind of doubt this. If she’s getting cast in kinky roles with Alan Arkin (!) she’s already out of the teeny bopper typecasting, and there isn’t a day that goes by where she’s not being photographed by paparazzi, so I don’t think she needs to raise her profile much.
    If anything, Playboy would be begging her, I can’t see her going to them.

  4. Mrs.Darcy says:

    MacHeath, What does Butterface mean, I’ve read it a few times in recent days? I like how she is pulling silly/gurny faces in these pics. Agree the breasts are totally fake, also agree Gossip Girl is probably watched by more who it isn’t targeted at. I think I would wretch if I saw a sex scene between her and Alan Arkin, sorry that is total yuk. I question this wholeheartedly, although she doe seem comfortable showing off her body, it doesn’t seem like anyone would seriously consider it a smart career move.

  5. Huma says:

    Ugh.

    I can’t help liking this girl. :-P You never see her falling out of a club with her knickers down, or rubbing her nose fervently like a secret crackhead, or talking about poo and farts. She’s private, she’s got a steady boyfriend, she’s got a hot TV career, she seems sweet and likeable and just fun to be around, and I have to admire a girl that has the b@lls to walk around without pants and look killer.

    Yeah, I’m not looking to her as any kidn of role model, and if I had a kid, I’d be like NO YOU DO NOT GET TO THROW AWAY YOUR PANTS JUST BECAUSE BLAKE LIVELY DOES D@MN, I’m just looking at her as a gorgeous young starlet who’s hitting her peak and has every right to dress as a gorgeous young starlet. :)

    So about the Playboy thing, whatever. Maybe she did, maybe she didn’t. And if we’re picking up on the fact that her audience is mostly adult women and gay men, maybe this (if true) is an attempt to reach out to the male population and be like HAY LOOK AT THE TOMATO WITH MELONS (quoting Krusty the Clown re: Marge Simpson). Either way, whatever. If she does do Playboy, I’m sure she’ll look amazing.

    (B!tch.)

    :-P

    I didn’t realize her core audience was tween either. Nor do I believe she approached Playboy. If anything, they’ve been ringing her phone and she’s finally returning a call.

    Someone like Blake could probably do this without harming her career. She appears sexual, adventurous and open to anything. Just what Hollywood loves.

    I agree she is a bit long in the face, but her body will sell magazines. Apparently Playboy needs all the help it can get right now.

  7. susanne says:

    I think she’s gorgeous- her face especially. I think she should go edgy, high-fashion and start dating high profile guys, take some daring roles.

    Someone like Heidi only has the Playboy option- Blake will only limit herself by posing nude…in Playboy. Vogue would be okay, right?

    That said, I’ve never seen her act…

  8. clare says:

    I don’t see her appeal. Very generic-looking.
    I thought Mischa Barton when she was on the OC had a far more interesting face.

  9. Dan says:

    Huma: “I can’t help liking this girl. You never see her falling out of a club with her knickers down…..”

    considering thats all she wears below the waist their probably extra strength.

  10. Essie says:

    Okay, first off, Playboy Magazine is just about bankrupt. Their stock is down so low a stockholder has filed a suit claiming mismanagment. I seriously doubt they have the money to pay Blake Lively $25.00 to pose for them, so I can’t imagine they would pay her $2.5M!!! The child is not that famous. She did a Vogue cover last year that was their lowest seller of 2009.

    Having said that, I believe at this point in her career, Blake would be ill-advised to do a nude spread. Instead, her advisors should be looking for more movies like “Pippa” where she plays a supporting role and build up to starring roles. She seems to be doing just fine now, without Playboy. But, of course it doesn’t hurt to throw those rumors out there.

  11. Susette says:

    Something about her face has always reminded me of Cate Blanchett. Not comparing their acting at all. Just the face.

  12. DK88 says:

    she’s not that pretty and she’s always making a weird face. Her acting sucks on GG, and some of her costars completely outshine her. I just don’t get her appeal.

  13. Well, she obviously photographs well so should do it. Her acting is kinda still blah at this point anyway.

  14. georgia says:

    I dont get the big woop over this girl..
    She’s not that pretty and needs a nose job.
    Dirty old men will jackoff over anything..have some integrity.

  15. Michelle says:

    She’s already had a nose job, it’s been pretty well documented. Her eyes are tiiiinnnnyyy (like taylor swift), she has thin lips, and yes, the face of a 40yo. Awesome hair though, unless they’re extensions.

  16. saywat says:

    She’s one dimensional on Gossip Girl. If she tries to show that she’s either unhappy, hurt, annoyed, or any negative feeling, she’ll just stand there and tilt her head and pout her lips!!! I’m liking her less and less.
