Blake Lively gets fit for “Green Lantern”
Hollywoodnews.com: “Gossip Girl” babe Blake Lively toned her body in preparing for her role as femme baddie Star Sapphire in the upcoming “Green Lantern” film.
Forgoing the typical Hollywood trainer, Lively, 22, opted to exercise alongside members of Cirque du Soleil.
In addition to impressing future moviegoers, Lively sought to be a role model to those closest to her as well.
“All I want is to be a hero to my nephews and nieces. I’m going to be the coolest aunt ever. Our director likes it real – the fights close and dirty. I’m 40 feet in the air, spiraling around. That’s the best workout you can ever do because it’s all core. You do that for ten minutes and you should see your body the next day! It’s so exhilarating, so thrilling – and nauseating,” she tells Showbiz Spy.
She also told the website recently that she has a walk-in closet of 300 pairs of shoes – a stash that apparently fell off the costume truck headed to the “Gossip Girl” set. (Not true – the set was where Lively obtained her fashion inspiration).
“The best place that I find to shop is the fitting room on Gossip Girl. I go in and take pictures on my camera phone, then email them off to the personal shoppers at stores, and say: ‘Find me this.’”
