Blake Lively's Gossip Girl Wardrobe: "I Dress Just Like Serena"
Where does red-carpet beauty Blake Lively get her fashion inspiration? From her Gossip Girl character, Serena Van der Woodsen's closet.
"I dress just like Serena! I own half her wardrobe, so itâ€™s far too similar to the way I dress," she tells Nylon magazine.
"I feel ridiculous at times with her â€” because Iâ€™m, you know, killing someone or marrying someone, but I look like me. Iâ€™m like, â€˜Oh, this is absurd.â€™"
But Blake's new movie The Private Lives of Pippa Lee â€” about a teenager's wild experiences returning to haunt her in later life â€” is much more adult fare than the CW's teen soap.
"I had a leash around my neck, and Julianne Moore was taking pictures," she says of an X-rated scene. "I thought, What am I doing with my life? What is happening? How is this a good idea?"
But when she's not playing hard-as-nails Serena, poor Blake, 22, is cursed by being too empathetic for her own good.
"I feel a lot. I get really bad stomachaches all the time," she says. " So I went to a doctor, and he said, 'Youâ€™re a feeler. I take on peopleâ€™s pain a little too much."
