Turns out, playing a Manhattan socialite is easy. At least, it is for Blake Lively.
The blond beauty, who plays the wealthy Serena van der Woodsen on the hit series Gossip Girl, says that slipping into character is a cinch for her.
“I can snap into Serena very easily. The way I dress as Serena is pretty much the way I dress as me. I’m living in New York City, shooting in New York City,” she tells the February issue of Esquire magazine. “I’m in a comfort zone.”
But these days, Lively is trying to leave that comfort zone behind.
Her upcoming big screen flick, The Town, which co-stars Ben Affleck, features Lively as a poor woman from the wrong side of the tracks, who even gets assaulted in one scene.
Variety confirms Blake has landed the lead female role in The Green Lantern! Congrats to her on this huge opportunity. Her film career is really boosting these days!
