Gossip Girl hottie Blake Lively strikes a pose for the November issue of Nylon Magazine.

The trendy star talks to the magazine about how she pranks her friends, riding elephants in Thailand and how she relates to her GG character Serena. Here are some highlights from the interview:

Blake on punking her friends:
“I swipe my friends with, like, my phone or something, - I slide it in their butts. Like in middle school! You say ‘Visa! Mastercard!’ Just to give somebody a jump. I’m a prankster.”

Blake on riding elephants on her recent vacation to Thailand, India and the Maldives:
“Elephants are the most incredible creatures I’ve ever been around. You’re sitting in this water that they poop in, and somehow it’s not gross. You’re scrubbing the bottom of their feet and behind their ears…”

Blake on how she relates to Serena:
"I dress just like Serena! I own half her wardrobe, so it’s far too similar to the way I dress. I feel ridiculous at times with her – because I’m, you know, killing someone or marrying someone, but I look like me. I’m like, ‘Oh, this is absurd.’"

Blake on her new film, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee:
"I had a leash around my neck, and Julianne Moore was taking pictures. I thought, What am I doing with my life? What is happening? How is this a good idea?"

Blake on her empathetic nature:
“I feel a lot. I get really bad stomachaches all the time. So I went to a doctor, and he said, ‘You’re an feeler.’ I take on people’s pain a little too much.”
