Blake Lively looks more sultry than sunny in her new ad for Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag, but believe it or not the “Gossip Girl” star is pretty consistently upbeat, working to spread positivity.

“I’ve just always believed you should put a lot of positive out there,” she tells WWD. “When I have bad days, I just eat lots of chocolate ice cream and dance to the ‘Lion King’ soundtrack. It’s really odd, but it’s true.”

Odd indeed, but endearing all the same. The article adds that Lively’s good nature can be traced back to the age of four, when she was “walking down the street” and thought to herself, “it’s the perfect day to be happy, and I’ve never really lost that.”

Her “Gossip Girl” character Serena van der Woodsen has made a name for herself in the world of fashion, but when it comes to Lively’s real life icons — Katharine Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn all come to mind.

“I love when a woman can be empowered and glamorous but also add the strength of masculinity,” she says of her style.

Adding, “I love what [Sienna Miller] wears.”

Still humble, Lively gushes that she is in awe of her opportunity to be the face of a fashion house as major as Chanel.

“I have such a respect for fashion and such an appreciating for it that if there are people like Karl Lagerfeld out there designing, who am I?” she explains. “I want to bow down to them and be a representative for them if they’ll have me.”

She continues to praise Chanel’s head designer and creative director, saying that she’s surprised the campaign didn’t produce any shots of her “with my jaw on the floor.”

The blonde even ended her photo shoot by snapping a picture herself — whipping out her cell phone to capture Lagerfeld behind the camera pointed at her.

What do you think of the 23-year-old as the face of Chanel? Would you buy what Serena van deer Woodsen’s selling?

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner stick to their policy of never posing together this week at the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures Gala in NYC, but he looks enamored to be photographed with The Town co-star Blake Lively.

The Oscar winner dismisses what Jen thinks of his beard, telling me, “you’d have to ask her, I don’t know.” And when asked whether daughters Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 2, would be allowed to act, he shoots down the question, saying, “I don’t want to answer that.”

But the actor and director is happy to gush about the Gossip Girl star, 23, who has been spotted with Leonardo DiCaprio after her split from co-star Penn Badgely.

“Blake’s such a wonderful actress,” Ben begins. “I can’t think of somebody who I would have more faith in, in her generation. I think she’s just remarkable, and she’s going to have a big career. She came in, and I didn’t know who she was. I wasn’t aware of the television show [Gossip Girl], and she just read … and I had been reading every actress from 40 to 20 for this movie. A lot of great actresses, and she just killed it.”

He continues, “She was so much better than anybody, and I was like ‘who is this person?’ Then, I was really happy to see that because she had one image on the show, to also see her to do something surprising for her audience — to play a completely different character. She’s great. She’s going to have a huge, strong, great career, and I’m just happy to be a small part of it.”

Afterwards, Blake stammers through her sentences when asked how she achieved her Boston accent – and what it was like working with Ben.

“Uh, I don’t know, a lot of time in Boston,” she says. “This role was just, um, such an incredible role. There shouldn’t be too much credit given to me because it was so beautiful on the page that it was, um, so much to do with it, that um, all you had to do was just do a little bit of research, so um, I don’t know, I was lucky that was able to, uh, to win him over.”

What was Mr. Affleck like as a director?

“He’s an incredible director,” she says. “He’s so patient and generous with his actors, and coming from somebody who really had no idea what she was doing, I really appreciated that. “

Hm, if I was Blake Lively, I don’t think I would belittle my acting skills like that. After all, she’s been on a popular TV show since 2007, and she’s starred in a few major movies since 2005.

If Lively lands the role, she will star in the adaptation of Catherine Fisher’s novel about a man who lives his life in a savage and futuristic prison society.

Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Watson are reportedly also being considered for the role.

Blake Lively
has admitted that she would rather stay at home and make pancakes than go out clubbing.

The 23-year-old Gossip Girl actress revealed that she does not find the party scene ‘fun’ and that she avoids it when she can, preferring to stay in and make ‘amazing Dutch apple pancakes’.

She told Cosmopolitan, ‘I’m much more of a homebody than a person who goes out.

‘I don’t think I’ve ever been to a club other than to see a band or if the ‘Gossip Girl’ producers are throwing an after-party specifically for us to go to, or the red carpet.

But I have never gone out, just to go out, because I don’t really find it that fun. I like to go and listen to live music and stuff, so that’s when I’ll go out.’
