Blake Lively Does Australian ‘Cosmopolitan’ Magazine


Gossip Girl star Blake Lively is featured on the cover of the new issue of Australian Cosmopolitan magazine and in her coverstory interview, she confesses that she is not a fan of nightclubs. In fact, except to see a live show, Blake contends that she has never been to a club before. HMMM … she sounds like a lot of fun to hang out with, don’t she?

Blake Lively has insisted that she prefers a quiet night at home to a night out clubbing. In an interview with Cosmopolitan Australia magazine, the Gossip Girl actress explained that she has never been particularly interested in the trendy nightclub scene. “I’m much more of a homebody than a person who goes out,” Lively said. The star continued: “I don’t think I’ve ever been to a club other than to see a band. I don’t really find it that fun.” Lively was recently named as the new face of Chanel’s Mademoiselle bag collection.

I mean … really? I’m not saying that it’s wrong to avoid clubs or anything like that but … really Blake, you’ve never been to a club before? To her credit, the girl does work hard and she successfully manages to keep her private life relatively private and definitely controversy free so … if staying away from clubs is workin’ for her, then I say good for her. As for this magazine cover … I’m not in love with it, to be honest. Her face looks … odd. I swear, some magazine photo retouchers should be shot. IMHO, this is not a very flattering photo … what do y’all think?

    i dont blame her…i mean ive only gone to clubs maybe 3 times…and ive always found like kinda ‘meh’. shes never really come off as the ‘party’ girl..more like the type who loves a sleepover.
    now this cover….oh man…probably one of her worse.

  • lex

    holy moly… that does not even look like her!

    • Jstar

      that’s what I was thinking…who is that girl?

  • A

    I’m not a club girl myself; definitely prefer bars. Her body looks great, but yeah, something weird is up with her face. Bad photoshop.

  • SuzieB

    Totally doesn’t look like her at all. Hopefully all this means she’s too boring for Ryan Gosling and he will stay available… ;)

    You know, in the picture preview before I clicked through, I thought to myself, “Hmmm, Blake actually looks pretty in this…a little younger in the face.” Funny that everyone else thinks she looks so weird and off…I mean, I agree, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

  • Mr. Gyllenhaal

    I agree with CMC I thought she looked good too until I saw the whole cover. It is all about bars!

  • c-word

    yea – never been much into that whole “club” thing… now, dive bars on the other hand… ;)

    The cover photo is a promo shot for Gossip Girl season 3 or 4 and she’s lying about never been in a club before, I remember there were a few photos of her and Chace Crawford drinking beers in a club, and she celebrated her SNL show in a club and she’s in this business, she may not like them much but she’s definitely been there

    • nicole

      she said other then going to see a band…so maybe there was something going on in the club?? i think she means…she doesnt go for just a reason to go like other people do.

    They’ve retouched her face so much that it looks flat. They managed to airbrush her cheekbones off.

    I’m not a huge club girl either, though. Can definitely relate.

  • Sara

    Is that really her?? WOW – it doesn’t even look like her!!!

  • Nathan

    I’m 24 and have never been to a club and don’t really care if I ever go to one. Not my thing at all.

  • J

    Is it just me or does she look like a younger Jennifer Aniston in this photo??

  • jason

    Cosmopolitan is a crap magazine that promotes sexist notions about the role of women in society. It’s very regressive.

    • Vanessa

      Completely agree. Never bought an issue and never plan on it.

      I don’t think of Blake as the covergirl type. She has a sort of tomboy look to her face. I’m not quite sure what it is, but this photo is not her best, that’s for sure.

  • She looks fab! :)

  • torrie

    Ugh. And they gave her a huge lower lip. Lame. She’s gorgeous as-is! Totally agree that some of these photo retouching folks should be shot!

    both aussie AND US cosmo are notorious for photoshopping their cover models to the point of being unrecognisable. never mind that the magazine itself is utter rubbish.

    im not a big club-goer (don’t love it, don’t hate it) but i can’t stand when people use it as a badge of honour almost, like “im so much more of a good person than you because i don’t club” or “I hate clubbing” when they have never even been so how would they know if they hate it or not? i think it would be healthy for celeb to just say “yes I like to go out occasionally and have a good time” than lie about it.
