Surprise! Blake Lively can’t wait for Gossip Girl to be over.
As most teen stars do, Blake Lively has grown tired of teen stardom and wants to move on with her life. This is the part where I’d really like to compare her future to that of Mischa Barton’s, except that as much as I dislike Blake Lively, she’s good in The Town (which if you haven’t seen it is fantastic), and she’s got Hick and Savages coming out and they both look amazing. Bummer for me.
Anyway, this is what she had to say about Gossip Girl coming to an end:
It’ll be bittersweet when it’s over. I think the best way to describe it is like someone who really enjoyed high school, and is like, I’m a senior and I can’t wait for the next thing!
Six years is a long time. And as an actor who plays a caricature of myself on the show, I don’t think I’d say, “watch Gossip Girl for my best quality of work.”
I am very lucky to have had that experience.
This quote is fantastic because it’s so well constructed. She basically says that she’s fucking sick of being Serena, which is fair, because Serena was shit to begin with and if you’re one of the three people left who are still watching then you know she’s fucking lost the plot since then. Then she shits all over the show and admits that she’s not doing her best, and then thanks them for hiring her. LOL.
Anyway, how do you feel about the end of Gossip Girl? Are you excited for Blake’s new projects? Excited to see what the others do?
