Blake aime la France!

Blake Lively isn't one to take her jet-setting summer for granted. In an interview with Japan's Movie Star magazine's October issue, the Gossip Girl star opened up about the summer she "will never forget." 

"I went to Le Cordon Bleu for a few days a few months ago," the 24-year-old actress said. "I studied French in one language institution... It was an amazing trip I will never forget -- a dream come true, and so many amazing memories made." 

Lively also found romance this past summer with Leonardo DiCaprio. The duo packed on the PDA in a yacht in Cannes, relaxed in Italy, then continued their European adventure in Saint-Paul, France. A friend tells Us Weekly Lively and DiCaprio, 36, "are so smitten it's crazy" and added: "I bet they get engaged in the next six months!"
