Blake Lively has a Hollywood boyfriend; now she’s itching for a Hollywood career. She shows she has the goods to wow big-screen audiences in a new photo spread in Bullett, a quarterly art and fashion magazine.
Lively, 24, is best known for her role as socialite Serena van der Woodsen in the CW’s television series “Gossip Girl.”
The show, about the lives of young, wealthy–and not so wealthy–Upper East Side Manhattanites, is one of the most talked about, if least watched shows on television.

After five years in the role, Lively is looking to move on when the series ends next year.
She’s already started building a film resume with parts in “Accepted,” “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee” and “The Town.” Her biggest yet, was the love interest of Ryan Reynolds in “The Green Lantern,” from which she also netted her current boyfriend.
The movie was sharply panned by critics and move-goers alike. But Lively’s relationship with Reynolds is a smash. They’ve been hot and heavy since last October and are looking to buying a country house together.
“Gossip Girl was so great, but what’s the next challenge in life? Because, you know, six years is a long time,” she tells the magazine.
“And 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.’ But I am very lucky to have had that experience,” she adds.
She next plays Ophelia in the Oliver Stone movie “Savages,” about Mexican drug cartels.
