Gossip Girl Blake Lively has joined the ranks of Miley Cyrus. A series of nude photographs purporting to be her hit the Internet over the holiday and drew quick denials from her reps and and legal threats from her lawyers.
Apparently the photos aren’t her, although they look remarkably like her. Except the face is partially obscured by a camera phone. But they are not, her camp assures.
While also noting the photos are apparently fake, Celebity Web site TMZ published a separate photo showing Lively holding an Apple cell phone identical to the one in the nude photos.

But it noted, the phones are ubiquitous. Still… but not.
At least Blake, 23, is in good company.
Beside Cyrus, who has had numerous private photos go viral, although none nude, both real and fake photos have circulated of such starlets as Emma Watson, Vanessa Hudgens and Ashley Greene.
The photos, which appeared on numperous Web Sites are “100 percent fake,” Usmagazine, quoting a Lively rep.
“Blake has never taken nude photos of herself,” her rep says. “Blake will pursue legal action against the publication which initially published these photographs and any other outlets that republish them in any manner.”

Beside acting, Blake has also made inroads in fashion and was recently named the face of Chanel.
Meanwhile, she was spotted with diCaprio in France last week.
The couple were spotted holding hands on a street in Monte Carlo, looking very much like a couple. An Us source says that DiCaprio “introduced Blake as his girlfriend.”
She appears in the upcoming action-adventure movie “Green Lantern,” opposite Ryan Reynolds later this summer. It hits theaters June 17.
