Fresh from her huge Teen Choice win and a bunch of awards for Gossip Girl to brag about, Blake Lively hits the big screen nearly simultaneously, with Sisterhood 2. In the movie, those gossipy girlfriends in their own right have moved on from high school to higher education, leaving the past behind except for those pants that cling in more ways than one.
Blake stopped by to drop hints about the movie, and what may be new and different juicy stuff on the show regarding her small screen persona, that preppy party girl Serena van der Woodsen. The lanky lady was also emphatic about shooting down all those rumors concerning just how tall she may or may not be.
First things first. What was Jesse Williams wearing when he dropped his drawers in the movie?
BLAKE LIVELY: Some underwear, I’m sure!
Speaking of clothes or the lack of them, is your own fashion sense anything like the characters you play?
BL: Well Bridget is like Indiana Jones, and I don’t dress like that. And I don’t wear soccer oufits. So mine is very different. That was an easy answer for me!
Yeah, I was like Indian Jones in this movie, and that’s crazy for me. You know, those swooping hats. It was awesome. But I dress a little different than that.

Blake Lively is the cover girl on Seventeen’s August issue, witch hits newsstands on Tuesday, July 8th. The interview and the shoot is all new and I can’t wait to get my hand on scans and outtakes that I can share with you guys, if anyone wants to contribute you can email me at fansitesdotcom [at] gmail.com.
On her real-life high school compared to Gossip Girl: “Oh, my goodness, my real-life high school experience could not be more different than Gossip Girl. Burbank feels like a small town in the big city of L.A. So for a fun night out, we would go to school fund-raisers. I was very involved in school – I was class president! And all of my friends were good – nobody was too wild. The kids on Gossip Girl enjoy getting a great education, but they couldn’t care less about school itself. But I think at the core, everyone deals with similar things in high school: jealousy, people making up rumors, dating someone you shouldn’t, or wanting to be with someone who’s unattainable.”
On her most awkward moment on Gossip Girl: “Chace and I had to do that scene in the first episode when I’m sitting on his lap on the barstool. Then they call, ‘Cut!’ and I just have to sit on the lap of this guy I met two weeks before! And I’m like, ‘So, you want to get some pizza tonight or something?’ What do you even talk about?!? It’s not as romantic as people think it is.”
On playing Guitar Hero: “I play in tournaments in Brooklyn. I’ll cover myself in sailor tattoos and dress like a rock star. Everyone else dresses totally normally and must think I’m a complete freak!”
On being compared to a hotel heiress: “I once heard someone say that I’m similar to Paris Hilton – since I have a dog and blonde hair, that must mean we’re alike. “It’s a dumb thing to say. I dont think that makes Paris and me similar … I don’t go to clubs, I don’t party, I don’t dance on tables, and I don’t like sex tapes.”
On her relationship with her on-and-off-screen boyfriend and how actors fall for each other: “Penn [Badgley]does these silly dance moves, and he’s very witty and quick, so it’s fun to have sharp banter with him… When you’re saying these words [from the script] that people are making you say to one another, nothing about it is real or genuine. So if two people connect outside their characters, then that’s how they get together.”
On being passionate: “When I care about somebody, whether it’s my best friend or somebody who I would date, I give them all of my heart. I’ve just been so loved, and I’m used to really loving people and trusting them.”
