Blake Lively Tries to Convince Us She's Shy

Blake Lively is beautiful, talented and extremely sexy. One thing we did not expect her to be is shy. The Gossip Girl star admits that she is extremely shy and it’s taken her a lot to break out of her shell.

"I'm actually a very shy person – that's a big secret, so don't tell," Lively tells Interview magazine. "But being in [acting] classes pushed me to break out of that a little bit. It's like nature versus nurture: I'm naturally very shy, but I was brought up in a way where I had to get up and get out of that."

If she were shy, Ben Affleck would have never guessed it! Affleck, who directed and stars alongside Blake in The Town speaks very highly of his co-star saying that she was very comfortable on set, even when they were filming naughty sex scenes.

Blake Lively comes from a family of actors but says Hollywood never fazed her. She reveals the main reason why she got into acting was the free food.

"I don't feel like I ever had any sort of Hollywood upbringing," she says. "I got to travel and visit my family on set. I got to eat craft service. I actually think that was the reason I got into acting: the free food. I literally remember on my first job being like, 'Yes! I get to have craft service every day!' "

Blake Lively is one of the most elegant women in ‘Young Hollywood’ and it’s very obvious that she has a long future in acting. It’s safe to say she will not be heading down the Lindsay Lohan route.
