Blake Lively is priceless: “My anonymity is something I treasure”


Blake Lively has a movie to promote! Let’s watch her get her boobs and legs out. Nevermind that it’s a small(er) part in The Town, and nevermind that that the actual female lead of the film, Rebecca Hall, hasn’t gotten any magazine covers. F-ck that, Blake. No, our Blake is going to rock Allure Magazine like it’s Vogue. I’m totally surprised she didn’t name-drop Anna Wintour in her Allure interview, but these are just excerpts, so she may have. But guess what she does talk about? Babies! And cooking! And her “relationship” with Penn Badgley. She’s not going to make the same mistakes that Megan Fox made, at all, although Blake and Megan seem about on par as far as talent goes. But Blake has more to offer us than just being a hot girl whose gravity-defying breasts fascinate men. No, Blake is a fashion girl, AND she talks about babies. Well done.

Blake Lively may play a drama queen on Gossip Girl, but in real life she is more like a domestic diva. Unlike her character Serena Van der Woodsen, Lively had a solid, tight-knit family upbringing and, as the youngest of five children, wants to create that big family for herself someday.

“I want babies. Lots of babies. Of course!” Lively, 23, tells the October issue of Allure. If she is planning to have kids with her beau and costar Penn Badgley, Lively is keeping mum.

“I don’t comment on my relationships, so you can skip that one!,” she says. “My anonymity is something I treasure. Wanting to be an actor and wanting to be famous are different.”

The actress, who is busy promoting the film, The Town, opening this weekend, is already thinking about life beyond acting and even has another career in mind – a restaurateur. “I want to have a brunch place, a bakery, and a Southern restaurant because my family’s from Georgia,” Lively says, “and then I want a place that is all-over-the-world cuisine.”

She is well on her way. An avid baker, Lively takes cooking classes when she travels to experience different cultural cuisines and has even stored away many family recipes. But when asked to share, Lively responds playfully, “They’re for my restaurants.”

[From People]

I go back and forth on Blake’s relationship with Penn. They’re always together, and they actually do seem pretty tight, just judging from their photos. BUT – they always look bored and boring. Plus, no one is really invested in that relationship, are they? Like, fans of Gossip Girl? Isn’t everyone just kind of “meh” on them? Also – Blake strikes me as the kind of girl who will f-ck up, you know? She’s going to drop Penn for someone better as soon as that dude comes along.

Also: “My anonymity is something I treasure.” Yes, that’s why she goes to the opening of an envelope and every single fashion show and gets her legs and her tits out for every camera. Because she loves anonymity.

    Maybe she doesn’t know what the word “anonymity” means! She’s pretty, not smart.

  2. Kitten says:

    I can’t picture her eating Southern food.. I’m going to The Town premiere tonight at Fenway Park :) I can’t wait to see how terrible Blake’s Chucktown accent is….

  3. jen says:

    “the opening of an envelope” OMG LOL!!

  4. geenie says:

    She is absolutely gorgeous and there is potential there. Penn Badgely is also a musician who sings and plays piano. They probably have a really nice relationship and they certainly seem close. Good for them. I really like her.

  5. Rose says:

    I liked her in the first Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, before the nose job, eyelid surgery and chest enhancement.

  6. koala says:

    if her “anonymity” is something she treasures, she should fear not; i would not recognize her in a crowd.

    she is ok, pretty but on the average side for hollywood standards.

  7. Persistent Cat says:

    I think it’s fair regarding what she said about maintaining her anonymity. It’s one thing to work a red carpet and promote yourself within your industry, it’s another to whore yourself to the paparazzi, which she doesn’t do. She isn’t spilling every mundane detail about herself to the press or on Twitter.

    She’s being professional, not picking fights with directors or the press.

    As to her relationship with Penn, if it’s fake, you don’t have to pay attention to it.

  8. danielle says:

    Just because she and Penn look boring doesn’t mean it’s not a good relationship.

  9. Squirrel says:

    Might she be ensuring some degree of anonymity by being unrecognisable when wearing proper, body covering clothing and showing an un-photoshopped face?

    LMAO @ “opening of a letter”
    kaiser should host the VMAs next year!

  11. K-MAC says:

    “I want babies. Lots of babies! Of course!” spoken like a true young person who does not have the first clue what it would be like to have LOTS of children….wait awhile my dear you have time.

  12. Kazoo81 says:

    i don’t get the gorgeous label some people give her. her face is way plain. she does not stand out in a crowd.

  13. guesty says:

    her beauty is simple. love love those dresses.

  14. lucy2 says:

    I think she’s very pretty, but sounds a little dim and don’t know if she’s talented or not. P Cat, I do agree with what you’re saying, she could be fame whoring MUCH more than she is, but anonymity wasn’t the right word for her to use.

  15. Bodhi says:

    Oh I’m jealous, Kitten!! I would love to go!!

    Question: What do you mean but Chucktown? Boston? I’m from Charleston, SC & we call it Chucktown :)

    AMEN TO THAT, it was exactly what I was going to say.

    I like her, a lot. And I’m happy for her and Penn, they’re a beautiful couple, out of the media eye.

  17. Girafe99 says:

    Isn’t publicity like oxygen for anyone in the entertainment industry?

    I don’t think you can desire anonymity and be successful, but choose too avoid infamy rather to maintain a sense a normalcy.

  18. ch says:

    this is te reverse of the kristen stewart case
    the starlet that really wants to succeed, no matter what
    its not like success took her by surprise
    she wants it really bad
    and god knows she´ll get it
    she had her surgery hollywood make over, her tv serial, she´s getting in the right movies
    i think her beauty is boring, but it can be fixed
    time will tell

  19. Kitten says:

    @ Bodhi-Yeah I happen to know a lot of people that work on the production side of the film industry in Boston so a good friend snagged a ticket for me :)
    Oh that’s so funny! Yeah the movie The Town is based on Charlestown, a small section of Boston. We call it Chucktown. I guess you would be our brother to the south :)

  20. Juice in LA says:

    She looks like she walks like a clydesdale in moon boots– check the posture in that photo of the breezeway with the bike

  21. Bodhi says:

    @ kitten ~ How funny!! My husband is from outside Boston & he has never mentioned it! I will have to harass him when I get home!!

  22. Madison says:

    She’s a stunning girl and she’s also getting really good reviews for her part in the town, most critics are saying her character should have had more screen time.

    This is what happens when you have media training they turn you into a vapid hollywood actress who talks about cooking and babies.

  23. Samigirl says:

    To be fair, if I had her legs and boobs, I would put them out there too. Well, if I wasn’t a mommy.
    I really like her. She is super beautiful, maybe not the best actress, but she works hard and doesn’t whine about it. I can’t stand whiny famous people *cough*kristenstewart*cough*

  24. Kelly says:

    I guess she’s right about the anonymity – her face isn’t particularly memorable, and I couldn’t pick her boobs out of a lineup!

  25. Darlene says:

    If one more person go on about her beauty, I might just scream. There is nothing about her that screams beauty in fact she looks just like every other tall thin blonde blue eyes girl in Hollywood (actually not as pretty as most) with her squinty eyes and huge nose, thin lips and horse face.

    Somebody stop me but good grief, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and I am not beholding to her at all.

    I have never seen her acting chops so I can not speak to that but she seems more suited to modeling than acting. One does not need to be attractive to be a good actress where on the other hand, models are required to be attractive or at least look good in clothes.

  26. jzhz says:

    @Darlene – totally agree.

    As for her “boring” relationship, what would make it less boring? If they were boning on the streets? What relationship is particularly interesting, if you’re not in it?

  27. She looks great. Although I have mever watched a single ep of gossip girl in my life so I can’t really comment on her acting abilities.

  28. j. ferber says:

    I don’t see her “beauty” either, but it sure does look like she tweaked her nose again. It looks smaller, no? If she’s going to mess with her face (a la Megan Fox) at least get rid of that annoying mole on her cheek.

  29. Whitey Fisk says:

    “Wanting to be an actor and wanting to be famous are different.”

    Well, good thing she opted for “Gossip Girl”. Because those fame-hungry STAGE ACTORS are constantly swarmed by paps.

    I’ve never had an opinion of her before, but she’s clearly a moron.

  30. Chris says:

    “My anonymity is something I treasure.”

    I think she’s referring to her membership in AA.

  31. Nina says:

    Someone better? I dunno like others have said her face is average and she’s not a good actress. I think Penn’s the one that could trade 0p – like his Easy A costars Emma Stone or Aly Michelka. Those girls are STUNNING. Seriously look at those premier pics for their movie.
