Please Roll Your Eyes At Marie Claire‘s Blake Lively Cover Story

Gossip Girl‘s Blake Lively lands the July 2012 Marie Claire cover as part of the promotional blitz for her upcoming film, Savages. Lively takes time out of her red carpet schedule to remind everyone that she doesn’t use a stylist (sometimes she even does her own hair and makeup) and she’s only had four boyfriends. Here’s some of that:

On whether there’s someone who helps her with her look:
“My assistant will call fashion houses for me, but I always pick the outfit, shoes, jewelry, and a lot of times I do my own hair and makeup for events. Sometimes I think, God, why do I do this to myself? It’s so much extra work!”

On if wearing revealing outfits shades the public’s perception of her:
“People like to draw parallels between my life and the scandalous stories on Gossip Girl. I dress the same as my character, so they think, She lives this life on and off set. I recently shared how many boyfriends I’ve had [four], and people were like, “That’s impossible!” But it’s true. I’ve been with very few people. If I’m not with somebody who really excites or inspires me, then I’d rather be by myself.”

While Lively is busy coming across as self-impressed, Marie Claire gets a lot more obnoxious by fixating on her physicality, in the absence of having a substantive performance to praise:

 Few women can pull off short and tight quite like Blake Lively. All taut body and flowing blonde hair, she’s every man’s dream and the envy of every woman.

      At least she’s very beautiful

      it’s interviews like this that make me happy that i appreciate her tits and legs more than her personality

    • Maggie

      The only thing I envy her for is the fact that she gets to see Ryan Reynolds naked on the regular.

    • L

      I see absolutely no problem with this interview. So she says she chooses her own outfits and has only had four boyfriends? How does that make her have a crappy personality?

      She is actually *the worst.*

    • Hermione

      She is really rather average looking. Except for the gorgeous hair and killer body. Heck, she is beautiful even with her goofy looking mouth. If I looked like her I would never let fleece (sweatshirt material) touch my body. I’d have 30 bikinis and I would slink around like mad in tight and short clothes. I would love to look just like her, except with a pretty mouth and dark hair (and RYAN.)
      Personalities? Who needs them?

      As you guys hate her so much on here. Stop writing about her. Focus on Leighton. Your blood pressure will improve dramatically as your contempt for her existence/art will dissipate I assure you. Jesus

      How does she manage to sound more stupid/attention-hungry with every interview she gives? You didn’t even post the quote about how she’s in a MAJOR COOKING PHASE RIGHT NOW and anyone who dates her HAS to love food.

      Vomit. Vomit everywhere.

      Did she pick out the red shiny bit for this cover?
      Not snarking, I promise, although I started to because at first I thought it was a jumpsuit and someone had Photoshop of Horrors’ed her thighs.
