Blake Lively Reminisces About Gossip Girl, Wants to Be in "Every Movie" With Ryan Reynolds
The next Bogie and Bacall? Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds costarred together in one movie, 2011's Green Lantern—but if Lively had her way, they'd always share the screen. During her takeover of Vogue magazine's Twitter account on Monday, Aug. 4, the Gossip Girl alum shared that she'd like to go back to the days when couples did movie after movie together, like Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, or Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn.
Asked by a fan whether she'd do another movie with her spouse of nearly two years, Lively tweeted, "In the olden days, a couple could be in every movie together, but it's just not like that anymore. We both wish we could go back to then, because that would be a lot of fun."
The Age of Adaline actress also dished during the Q&A about Gossip Girl, Beyonce, and her new lifestyle website, Preserve. In response to one question about whether she misses her role as Serena van der Woodsen on GG, she replied honestly, "I miss the people that I worked with, our cast and our crew. But I don't miss the 16-hour days."
She has fond memories of the early seasons, though. Her favorite one to shoot was the first season in 2007. "It was the 1st year I lived in New York City and what a way to live in NY," she recalled. "It was very special and surreal."
Another career highlight was being asked to appear in Beyonce and Jay Z's music video for "Run," which also featured Sean Penn, Jake Gyllenhaal, Don Cheadle, Emmy Rossum, and Rashida Jones. "It was the first moment in my life where I truly felt cool," she tweeted. "It gave me a high sense of self-esteem for a good 10 min."
As for her latest project, the lifestyle website Preserve? The hardest part, she wrote, is "finding the balance between wanting to make everyone happy and accepting that that's not possible." Which doesn't mean she won't try. "I hope it's a place where people can come and find something that inspires them or puts a smile on their face," she shared.
