With her role in Oliver Stone's “comeback” film, “Savages,” which is currently running in theaters around the world, “Gossip Girl's” Blake Lively is stepping away from her cutesy image. One thing you should not expect of her though is to bare it all on camera next.
In “Savages,” Blake plays one of the pawns of a very modern love triangle, which not only functions to perfection but also deals drugs in the most peaceful manner ever.
As the trailer clearly indicates (see it below), the film does include a couple of pretty steamy scenes between the 3 lovers, but Blake promises she isn't showing too much skin – or, at least, not as much as some of her male admirers might want her to.
In fact, she never will: the stunning actress, who is now dating Hollywood hunk Ryan Reynolds and is considered one of the most gorgeous and fashionable presences on the scene, believes too much skin distracts from what's really important in a film.
“When I see nudity in movies, I am always distracted by it,” Blake admits in a recent interview with the British media, as cited by the Daily Mail.
“I know that if I am watching a scene and someone has their [breasts] out, then that’s all I’m looking at – I can’t help it. I just don’t think that will ever be right for me,” the actress adds.
On a more personal note, in the same interview, Blake talks about the people that help her stay grounded no matter how famous she may become.
“The same people who love you to death one day will hate you to death the next, so who do you give the keys to your self-worth to?” she asks.
“You have to have those keys for yourself. And you have to surround yourself with people who are honest with you. I need honesty. I need good friends who can say, 'I love you to death, but you look terrible in that and you need to change right now',” Blake adds.
