Blake Lively discusses ‘Green Lantern’
HollywoodNews.com: “I would love to be a villain,” Blake Lively admits, and the Gossip Girl star may soon get her wish, as her character’s arch in the upcoming “Green Lantern” film adaptation eventually takes a villainous turn.
For now, however, Lively has more than enough on her plate. In a new interview, she explains just how intense the filming process became. “I had this crazy rig that I had to be on. It was invented for The Matrix. It was 30 feet tall and 20 feet long arm, and this gyroscopic wheel that’s around your waist and it moves off of your weight. It just seems like, ‘Oh, that’s fun and easy,’ but it required so much core strength to slowly control this thing. But if we went on to a second or third, that’s when I really get to do the stunts because she becomes a villain.”
She then goes on to clarify why “Green Lantern”–which also stars Ryan Reynolds–isn’t just your average superhero movie, and proves that knows her sci-fi tropes, saying, “Green Lantern is a really unique film in that it’s interplanetary. There’s the city that it takes place in on Earth, and you know we have our cool things that we do there, like pilot planes. But then there’s also the outer space realm. There’s aliens from all over the galaxy. So it encompasses so much, it’s such a big film, it’s such a huge undertaking, and that’s something that you don’t normally see. You either see space or you see Earth, but to have both in one film is unique.”
The highly-anticipated film hits theatres on June 17, 2011.
