Blake Lively made her name on Gossip Girl, but reports have been swirling that she wants nothing more to do with the show and even turned down the offer to appear in the upcoming film adaptation. Turns out, that’s a load of bullshit because she didn’t even know a Gossip Girl movie was happening. Take that, dummies!
“Blake Lively Reportedly ‘Desperate’ To Avoid Gossip Girl Movie — Her Costars Are Not Happy!” scream a headline from RadarOnline, which picked up a story from its sister outlet Star.
According to the webloid, “Lively’s fame may be attributed to her breakout role as Serena Van Der Woodsen on ‘Gossip Girl,’ but that doesn’t mean she believes that she owes her cast mates, or the hit show’s creators anything!”
The blog goes on to regurgitate that “the beautiful blonde’s former cast mates are ‘infuriated’ that the 25-year-old doesn’t want to sign on for a movie based on the television show, which ended last year.”
A so-called “source” says, “She’s being pressured on all sides to sign on, but she thinks it’s a terrible idea and is desperate to avoid the project.”
Wow, this story is nearly as dramatic as an episode of “Gossip Girl” — and even more fictitious.
Lively rep tells us the actress “was unaware there was even a ‘Gossip Girl’ movie” for her to supposedly avoid doing, and that the entire story is untrue.
Ah, the press – gotta love it. I’ve never watched Gossip Girl because I’m terrible at actively watching any TV show save for a select few, so I have no feelings either way about whether or not they make a movie. But Blake Lively might as well get on board – it’s not like she has anything else to do with her time besides being Ryan Reynolds‘ wife. And yes, that’s sarcasm.
