Blake Lively Nude Photos Are Fake, Rep Says
While Blake Lively is mostly known for how good she looks with clothes on, photos purportedly showing the Gossip Girl beauty nude spread across the web on Tuesday.
While alleged nude cell phone photos popped up across several celebrity blogs that appeared to show Lively posing naked, Celebuzz received an exclusive statement from the 23-year-old star's rep, and Lively's camp says the photos are "100 percent fake."
Blake's rep tells Celebuzz:
"The photos of Blake Lively which have just surfaced on various websites including Perez Hilton and Zap2it.com are 100 percent FAKE. Blake has never taken nude photos of herself. Blake will pursue legal action against the publication which initially published these photographs and any other outlets that republish them in any manner."Blake, the face of fashion powerhouse Chanel, has been spending the last couple weeks overseas in the French Rivera and has been seen with Leonardo DiCaprio. Just last week, the newly-single Leo and Blake were spotted laughing and hugging while hanging out with Steven Spielberg and Lukas Haas on a luxurious private yacht in Cannes, France. Wearing a white dress and a peach-colored Chanel purse, Blake wrapped her arms around Leo as she arrived on the boat.
Earlier Tuesday, Us Magazine ran a photo of Leo and Blake holding hands while walking down a street in Monte Carlo, looking very much like a couple. An Us source says that DiCaprio "introduced Blake as his girlfriend."
Lively's most famous relationship to date was her years-long stint with her Gossip co-star, Penn Badgley. The two split in October of 2010, and Lively has been one of the most eligible bachelorettes in the celebrity world.
Professionally, Blake has a busy summer on her hands, as she's set to make her summer blockbuster debut as she stars opposite Ryan Reynolds in the much-anticipated superhero flick Green Lantern. There's been serious hype about the film, which Blake attended Wondercon to promote back in April, and fans will get their chance to see it on June 17. Watch the trailer below:
As for DiCaprio, he's been working on the J. Edgar Hoover biopic J. Edgar and is now beginning production on The Great Gatsby, which Lively had been rumored as a possible casting choice. Romantically, Leo has made a habit of dating some of the most beautiful women on the planet. Most recently, he split with his supermodel girlfriend Bar Refaeli after an on-again, off-again relationship for years.
