Blake Lively has no willpower for diets & doesn’t work out


Blake Lively has that body naturally, although I’m not sure those hot pants do her body justice. Do you hate her yet? Blake got a little smug in her interview with Glamour UK, and she claims that she has barely any willpower with her diet, and she has “never worked out.” Oh, Jesus. Enough! But before we get too upset with Blake’s “look at me, I’m naturally perfect” bullsh-t, we can keep several things in mind: first, she won’t always have that metabolism; second, I’m pretty sure that wasn’t the nose she was born with, and those flotation devices on her chest are most likely implants, so Blake’s not as “natural” as she wants us to believe; third, the carpets don’t match the drapes. Feel better? I certainly do:

Although Blake Lively is known for wearing skimpy outfits on the set of Gossip Girl, the 21-year-old star confesses that she doesn’t do anything to make her body look good.

“I do panic before I have to wear a really skimpy outfit, but I don’t have enough willpower,” she tells the August issue of UK Glamour Magazine. “I had to do a scene in a bra and shorts for the first time in two years,” she continues. “On the day of the shoot, I ate a pork burrito, chips and coke. Afterwards, I thought, ‘I probably shouldn’t have done that.’ But whatever.”

So maybe she doesn’t eat right, but at least she exercises, right? Wrong! “I have never worked out, but I know you feel better when you do,” she says, “so I am planning on getting a trainer.”

Lively, who has previously refuted reports of discord on the Gossip set, tells the magazine that she gets along well with her costars. “We hang out after filming,” she insists. “We actually look forward to spending time together outside of work.”

That includes her real-life leading man Penn Badgley, although she admits she was unhappy when he was cast on the series. “At first I was so upset that they hired him,” she says. “I actually poisoned the whole cast against him. But then they noticed that he wasn’t a jerk and was actually a really nice, charming person. Almost immediately I realized that too, but it took me about a week to admit it.”

I actually don’t have any hate for this girl – she seems pretty harmless, and I do think she’s rather pretty. A little boring, but pretty. She’s hot stuff right now, with a couple of movies this year in addition to Gossip Girl. Since I don’t watch the show, I’m not sure if this is a SPOILER or not, so beware all Gossip Girl fans… are they gone? Okay, apparently Blake’s character Serena Van Der Woodsen is going to be spending some time next season looking for her real father. Blake has come out and told Mr. Paparazzi that she’d like none other than Brad Pitt to play her father. Hmm… I wonder if he’d be interested?

    I read a blind item a while ago that hinted that the wardrobe folks had to remove the tags for character. Apparently she thinks she’s smaller than she is and refuses to wear anything that has its true size in it. She’s not fat by any means, but if you look at her wardrobe choices, she clearly is in denial about the current shape of her body: too tight and ill-fitting is like her wardrobe staple.

    But I am tired of people saying “I don’t work out at all!” when they really mean “I snort coke/starve myself/throw up to look like this.”

  2. Bob Lawblaw says:

    Because I Say So… I was thinking the same thing!

    I don’t work out = coke, vomit, and/or the shits.

    Why would you brag that you don’t eat healthy and have never exercised? “I hear you feel great afterwards”?!? who says that?

    All that proves is that you only care what others see, and that is unfortunate.

  3. rbsesq says:

    I used to be like that. Tall, skinny, could eat anything I wanted and never had to worry about it. Then I hit 24. Nature’s a bitch, Blake. Enjoy it while it lasts.

  4. Tara says:

    I have friends that were like that at her age and they weren’t cokeheads and didn’t have eating disorders. They are called 21 year olds. She’s probably not downing whole cheesecakes and I assume works 14 hour days on-set. When she gets older, she’ll have to change her ways but she’s just a kid.

    Everyone is always quick to say the worst possible things because some girl has a nice figure. She just must be a lying anorexic laxative taking cokehead.

  5. Bob Lawblaw says:

    It IS unfortunate that those are the first things to pop into people’s minds. It’s also unfortunate that some people would rather vomit than exercise.

    And in reality, it’s often the case- especially because they’re that young- and that is much, much sadder.

    Thank you! I was just about to say that myself.

    God forbid someone just get a luck of the draw, why do you need to find mean things to say about someone who has a nice figure just to make yourself feel better for yours not being so nice?

    It’s like those fat girls who used to say “Yea, but I bet Annie just throws up all the food she ate later, that’s why she’s skinny.” instead of channeling that energy into working towards the body that makes THEM feel happy so that they don’t feel the urge to begrudge another person theirs.

  7. Because I Say So says:

    I don’t think Blake does the truly harmful stuff to maintain her body, but I’m not ruling it out, either. Before I hit 25 I could eat and do whatever I wanted and it wouldn’t make a difference, so I do know that being young has a lot to do with it.

    –BUT– I still stand by my original comment. All too often starlets make the claim that they have the body they do naturally, when a lot of it is just crap. Let’s just say I’m reserving a healthy dose of skepticism. 🙂

  8. Ned says:

    She is thin for a girl that tall.
    She might not wear the small sizes, but that’s because her body is naturally wider (as many taller girls are).

    She obviously works out (those muscles don’t just happen), and she did get a new nose and boobs, so plastic surgery and hair bleached and fake tan is a part of her routine, so I wouldn’t say she is low maintenance.

    She is suffering from the same syndrome that hit Kate Winslet.

    They both think that if they lie about the effort they put into looking as they do, they earn points (I’m not sure who is supposed to be the crowd happy about not working out nor dieting women).

  9. lilmiss says:

    Excuse me? She was “so upset” when he was hired and poisoned the rest of the cast against him? What a B-word! WHY did she do that?

  10. cucuchoo says:

    i was skinny lil thing until i hit about 28 and since then have packed on about 15 lbs in the last 10 years. i could eat anything i wanted, and i did. i ate tons of food including junk food and loved it. i didn’t work out regularly tho i was not a slob and enjoyed playing sports. some people are just lucky like that. i still fit (barely)a size 2 but now have the dreaded muffin top. women are so jealous of girls who can really eat what they want and assume they have an eating disorder. its really friggin annoying b/c i’ve was painfully thin when i was younger and couldn’t gain weight and was always accused of having an eating disorder. i was just lucky as hell!

  11. orion70 says:

    lol cucuchoo…you USED to be skinny but now you’re a size 2 ? *scratches head*

    I do see your point about people who are super-skinny though, I know someone like that and she’s bugged incessantly about it with the “eat something!” and the worried looks.

    Re: Blake, I like her, but the way she talks and holds her mouth is weird and bugs me. But I always got the impression she was sporty or something, given that she’s played a soccer player in that movie.

    I agree with many here, she’s 21. I was scrawny at that age, and during the college years subsisted on pizza, fries and beer. I didn’t work out, but I did walk everywhere, and I suppose the all-night partying and dancing didn’t hurt.

    Do NOT like that outfit in the header pic.

  12. Di says:

    She is going to have a cellulite problem like Mischa Barton. I recall Mischa saying the same exact things about eating and not working out when she was first famous for being on the O.C., now look at her.

  13. Granger says:

    orion70, I’m with you. When I was 21, my only exercise was walking, I ate crap most of the time, and I regularly scarfed pizza slices or Kraft Dinner after coming home from the bar at 3 in the morning — but I never gained an ounce. And that isn’t because I was addicted to coke or throwing up in the bathroom after every meal. Quite simply, my metabolism was raging. If I ate like that now, though, I’d be 300 lbs. Blake’s metabolism will slow soon enough, and she — like every other starlet — will keep her caloric intake to a bare minimum and hit the gym seven days a week to look as unreal as the rest of ’em. For now, she should just cherish the freedom.

  14. cucuchoo says:

    haha yay for fast metabolism. i was a size 1 sometimes 2 back in the day. now a 4 is too big but a 2 fits ok but a little tight in the gut. i didn’t look emaciated back then tho. i’m a shortie. what’s scary is the size 0’s that are 5’10. i still kinda eat a lot sometimes i must say. never been on a diet but i eat veg and mostly organic now, no soda, processed foods etc. but now i work out a few days a week and still squeezin into the 2. also re cellulite. i got it. my 65 yr old mom who is 20lbs overweight does not. some people are just lucky like that!

  15. Annie says:

    Mmm. Pizza at 3 in the morning. Ahh, the insanity that was college life.

  16. Ana says:

    I actually believe her. I’m one of the ones that is so sick of ppl claiming they never work out or diet because I think it’s more impressive to say–“Yes, I work hard for the body I have.” Because I do not have the willpower to work out except ocassionally.

    She doesn’t seem toned. Not that her body is bad or anything. Everything is in the right place…for now. Hope it stays that way for her. She IS 5’10 so that helps a lot. Wish I was that tall. Okay maybe about 5’6.

    Cucuchoo–maybe you should try a bigger pants size. I’m not being snotty but maybe a three would make the muffin top a little less noticable. But maybe you don’t have size three where you live?

    I don’t understand why she poisened the cast about him? What did he do? I’m assuming nothing and she was just acting 16 years old! Come on woman.

  17. Aspen says:

    Most thin adults…most, not all…are slender through a combination of lifestyle and genes.

    Most heavy people…most, not all…are heavy through a combination of lifestyle and genes.

    Miss Lively is likely telling the absolute truth because the truth is that exercise and diet maintain health…they don’t give you a body like that. Only God or the atheistic god of genetics can give you a naturally slender figure.

    Just sayin’

    Anyone can make the best of her shape and look “good” or “healthy.” Being super slender, however, is generally birth, luck, and/or a good surgeon.

    Annie doesn’t do unhealthy things to be the slender woman she is. Blake Lively doesn’t look like a coke head to me, either. Keep that in mind the next time you see a picture of Kelly Clarkson (who has a heavy build with large hips and thighs even at her slimmest) after a “not starving myself to look good for the camera” phase. She is not obese or unhealthy. Remember that bodies come in all shapes, and healthy comes in all shapes, too.

  18. Aspen says:

    Cucu, I was a size 4 in my early twenties. I was a runner then (back injury keeps me on ellipticals or in the water now), and I still had cellulite. I kept my skin moisturized well, did lower body weight work several times per week, and drank a lot of water. That’s all I could do. I kept it at a minimum, but I could never get rid of it totally. It’s just how my body is. Don’t worry too much over it. Most women carry a bit of cellulite.

    Now in my 30’s, I’ve lost some ab structure since my pregnancy, and my hips expanded, so I’m no longer a 4-6. I’m more of a 6-8 with an occasional 10 depending on brand. It looks good on me, though, and I’ve reconciled to it.

    Don’t worry about being a certain number size. Worry about knowing that you’re healthy and making the size you ARE look good. The body will gravitate toward a natural size when the lifestyle is healthy.

  19. lola says:

    that is one ungly unflattering outfit.

    I nver new who this chic was until I saw in interview with Blake and America promoting the traveling pants movie, Blake spent most the interview talking about the up coming gossip girl, America was thre looking all confused and irritated, uh hello air head we ar promoting traveling pants not your stupid gg show. Eversince that interview i have thought this girl is an idiot.

  20. lauritabean says:

    if those are breast implants, why’d she get them so small? i’d say that’s a B cup, but maybe it’s more. still, they look kinda little in those pics, and they seem to fit her frame.
    i too miss my 20’s metabolism. 🙁

  21. SiSi says:

    I don’t see what’s so surprising about this. I don’t try to kill myself exercising, I don’t deprive myself of good food for the sake of dieting, and voila, I am 5’3″ and I weigh 108 with rock-hard abs lol. So yeah, it is possible to be naturally skinny, don’t assume she’s lying about how she eats. My friends assume so all the time (which is irritating and it gets old REALLY quick), and on TOP of that, some of them think I’m anorexic or bulimic when I could probably out-eat any of them.
    Although as far as Blake having fake boobs and a fake nose and the whole carpet/drapes thing…yeah I could believe all that. lol

  22. Jane says:

    “It’s also unfortunate that some people would rather vomit than exercise.”

    Anyone who has ever experienced an eating disorder knows that it is not a CHOICE. A series of small choices, maybe, but when it develops it is not easy to “reverse”. Also, a bulimic may use exercise instead of vomitting, and it is still a serious disease.

    I could go further with this but I prefer not to, as there is plenty of information out there but eating disorders are no joke.

    Also, always with the “you’ll see when you turn 27/24/40/etc.”

    WE ARE ALL DIFFERENT. There are two components: metabolism & eating habits. Some of us stay small, some of us gain the weight, some of us lose the weight..

    Just let it go already.

    ————- on another note. I can unfortunately see Blake going the Mischa Barton route with the weight gain/cellulite/difficulty finding work after the TV series. They both have this one-dimensional “girl next door” thing going on that doesn’t seem to be able to extend from the small screen. Maybe a teen movie or two would be possible, but it’s a little late for that now :/

    Guys c’mon! Blake Lively is gorgeous!! Look at her face! She’s the hottest girl alive!
    Stop saying she will get fat just because you did when you hit a certain age! Her body is a knock out! Just watch gossip girl. Her body is what most men consider to be sexy.
    She is healthy!! That’s all! She refuses to let the standards set by society affect her.
    Wouldn’t we all like to drop our diets. You can see she doesn’t have a eating disorder because she isn’t that thin.

    You can call her fat but I bet you all wish you were as gorgeous. XOXO
