Pretending to be Marilyn Monroe helps Blake survive the red carpet
The Gossip Girl star has admitted that she gets self-conscious at showbiz events and tries to channel the confidence of the Hollywood sex siren to survive the ordeal. See, even the stars get stage fright!
She said, “I have insecurities like any girl. I used to be really shy and unconfident. I hated being tall. Walking the red carpet is scary, so I pretend to be Marilyn Monroe – someone who owned their sexuality and projected this incredible aura of self-confidence.”
Down-to-earth Blake, 24, prefers staying at home to attending parties and says she feels sexiest when she is cooking. “I really like to cook. Cooking makes me feel sexy. I think there’s something so sensual about it – the smells, the touches, the flavours, the experience of creating something. And, you know, when you’re doing it with someone you love, creating that together. I think it’s really attractive. I do a little of everything but Italian food is my favourite. And chocolate! Whenever I travel I go to cooking schools. I eat too much, that’s the problem.” Not that you’d guess that she eats too much, looking at her! Lucky girl and her sexy-body genes!
