Blake is featured on the June 2010 cover of Vogue magazine! She is showcasing new swimsuits for summer and looks truly gorgeous in the mag. Check out the scans, photoshoot and caps from the behind the scenes video in the gallery. An excerpt from the article is already available here.
I want to apologize for the lack of updates for several months. Truth of the matter was I really lost interest here because I currently do not like the direction with Gossip Girl and there wasn’t much going on keeping my interest. However, after a little break, I feel refreshed and excited to update now that the show is off for the season and there is new things happening with Blake, so I hope this will last! I will try and make my way around to getting the site back up to date with Gossip Girl but it will be a gradual process since I really find the episodes quite boring these days. If anyone would like to help out capping them please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
For starters, screencaps of Blake’s very brief scene in New York, I Love You have been added. Her scene was shared with Anton Yelchin and Olivia Thirlby and was actually quite funny. She looks stunning in that red dress too!
I can’t quite recall the disquieting moment when I realized that they were, in fact, all around me. I knew that Cameron Diaz broke her nose doing it and was unsurprised to discover that Stefano Pilati is very, very good at it. I was amazed to hear that my friend Holly Peterson travels to the ends of the Earth in pursuit of it and that Cynthia Rowley fashions clothing expressly for it. I knew that Damien Hirst’s partner, Maia, is gaga for it but that he’d rather just watch, and I was frankly dumbfounded that both Barneys’ gnomish Simon Doonan and Vanity Fair‘s Falstaffian Graydon Carter each had a go—and with the same happy band of practitioners, no less.
Instead of a Mason’s handshake or the furtive double glance of pre-Stonewall Temperamentals, an evangelical glint in the eye helped me recognize these cultists. Their faces would take on a beatific cast when I raised the subject, and in reverent tones they evoked otherworldly pleasures beyond the ken of ordinary mortals. And now I was about to be abducted into this bitchin’ netherworld of tubes, lips, and barrels.

Comic book fans rejoiced when news arrived that The Green Lantern would be coming to the big screen with the perennially under-appreciated Ryan Reynolds playing the hero of the piece, Hal Jordan. The film, which begins shooting in March, already has Blake Lively attached as love interest Carol Ferris and An Education’s Peter Sarsgaard as the villainous Hector Hammond.
News comes today via DC Comics’ Geoff Johns’ twitter account that Mark Strong will officially be playing Sinestro, arguably The Green Lantern’s greatest adversary throughout the comics. Strong seems to be the first choice in Hollywood when casting bad guys right now, securing this role which Jackie Earl Haley was also widely linked with. Sinestro may play a smaller role in the Martin Campbell’s first installment with the character likely to play a bigger part in the franchise should the 2011 release prove to be a success.

What is your favorite Blake Lively performance and why?
The DVD and Blu Ray release for the film is scheduled for March 2nd 2010.
The film follows its title character Pippa Lee, played by Blake Lively and Robin Wright Penn. After nearly two decades caught under the wing of an aging husband (Alan Arkin), devoted mother and housewife Pippa Lee (Robin Wright) undergoes a midlife breakthrough. Unearthing the sexually curious wild child of her teens (as portrayed by Blake Lively), Pippa sparks a relationship with a kindred soul (Keanu Reeves). Lively and Wright deliver a stunning and revelatory performances in Pippa Lee; a wry, moving, and complex portrait of the many lives behind a single name. The film was released in theaters November 27th, 2009.
The CW has given early pickups to series for next season, of these five shows, Gossip Girl. The show will return in fall 2010 for season four. From the network:
Also given early pickups for next season are The CW’s Monday night sensation Gossip Girl, which is The CW’s number one show among its target demographic of women 18-34.
Other popular shows scheduled for return are Supernatural, 90210, America’s Next Top Model and new series The Vampire Diaries.
Gossip Girl returns March 8, and it sounds like it will come back with a bang.
Executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage took to Twitter yesterday afternoon to answer fan questions and tease viewers about what’s to come as season three wraps up.
Read on for what is to come with the remaining episodes – warning: spoilers! Some of it will hopefully turn out to be pretty exciting, for the lackluster third season (in my opinion).
Blake Lively never made it to the snowy mountains of the Sundance Film Festival, but her name was heard up and down Main Street, uttered by some of the biggest names in Hollywood. Ryan Reynolds declared that the Gossip Girl beauty is going to be “flawless” opposite him in the comic book adaptation, Green Lantern.
And Ben Affleck, who cast Blake last summer in The Town, had nothing but kind things to say about the 22-year-old actress, even though he’s never caught a single episode of the TV show that made her a star.
“I have never seen Gossip Girl, I have to say,” he admitted. “I saw The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, which she’s really, really great in and she’s great in my movie.”
