Blake Lively is ready to give up her status as the elite Upper East Sider socialite Serena van der Woodsen in the teen TV hit Gossip Girl, and move on to more serious roles.

The actress, 24, is set to star in the forthcoming Savages, a crime drama which sees her character kidnapped by members of a Mexican drug cartel, thus proving she's ready to "graduate" from her Gossip Girl fashionista alter-ego.

"I think the best way to describe it is like someone who really enjoyed high school, and is like, 'I’m a senior and I can’t wait for the next thing.' Gossip Girl was so great, but what’s the next challenge in life?" she told Bullett magazine.

Looking back on the show's success, Lively -- who is dating her Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds -- added: "As an actor who plays a caricature of myself on the show, I don’t think I’d say, 'Watch Gossip Girl for my best quality of work.'"

"I am very lucky to have had that experience, [but] I’m ready to move on with my life, and I can’t do that with Gossip Girl tracking my every move."

Watch Lively in the latest Savages trailer below. The movie hits theaters on July 6.
