Wait, that body was created by eating hot fudge sundaes?! When Blake Lively returned to the Upper East Side, she, like her Gossip Girl character Serena van der Woodsen, was the talk of the town at the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala on Monday, May 5.
However, once she wowed in a blush-colored Gucci Premiere gown alongside hunky husband Ryan Reynolds, the Age of Adaline actress, 26, didn't hit up a raging after party.
"I ate hot fudge sundaes," she dished to Extra on her post-gala plans. "That's what I look forward to, because you're just in a corseted gown all night. Just give me a hot fudge sundae. I went to Serendipity. Frozen hot chocolate, extra peanut butter sauce on the side. I closed that place down!"
Chowing down at the famous New York City sweet spot, which is 26 blocks aways from the Met, Lively ordered a peanut butter frozen hot chocolate with, get this, extra peanut butter sauce on the side! So how does she down so much sugar and stay looking so trim?
"Well, I like to cook so I use a lot of fresh ingredients," she said. "It's easier to be healthy when you're eating things that are fresh."
Though she has a reputation for boycotting the gym, the Gossip Girl alum—now an avid baker, too—wants to clarify that she still finds ways to stay in shape.
"I've said before, 'Oh I hate the gym, and I eat chocolate,' but the part that they don't print — they make me look like a jerk!—is that I hate the gym so I find other ways to be active," she continued. "I dance, I ride bicycles, I hike. I go out and exercise in nature. I find ways to be physical where you're also having an experience because I'm very experience-oriented."
