Blake Lively, best known for her role as Serena on CW’s “Gossip Girl,” landed the cover of Vogue Magazine’s August edition.
Recently, the 26-year-old blonde bombshell opened up about her marriage to husband Ryan Reynolds and announced the upcoming launch of a lifestyle-esque website—although she hesitates to label it as such—called Preserve.
The shoot, which took place in a stunning Wyoming setting, features Lively looking, well, lively in Native American-inspired, rugged get-ups. She also had some cute puppies by her side.
In the interview with Vogue, the actress opened up about the launch of her new website, and when asked if she was worried the site might be mocked like Gwyneth Paltrow’s site Goop, she replied, “I’m sure there will be plenty of people who will say horrible things. I’m sure this interview will be picked apart. But you can’t worry about it. There have been so many things written about me that are untrue and horrifying. I can’t even believe that my family has to read this stuff. You just have to do what makes you happy, because you’ll never get a unanimous vote. People like to gossip. They bond over it. They don’t bond over complimenting famous people.”
Lively also told the magazine that her hubby Ryan Reynolds’ “fingerprints will be all over” her new website.
“He’s a part of it because everything we do in life we do together. If I’m working on a movie, he helps me with my character; I do the same with him. Picking out a coffee table. What we’re going to eat. He’s a beautiful writer—he’s written a lot of stuff for us. And he’s got a great barometer, and he knows me, so he will tell me if it’s not as good as it can be.”
