Blake has been spending a lot of her time filming the latest season of Gossip Girl in New York City but took some time out to head to Los Angeles where she met up with her beau for a bite to eat.
According to People the couple dined at Umami Burger in Los Feliz, California and an onlooker said: “Blake looked very happy and kept smiling.”
And she wasn’t the only one enjoying the low-key date, Leo seemed smitten with the blonde beauty: “He gently grabbed her hand at one point and he seemed very into Blake.”
However Sources say the couple have broken up and made up twice in one week.
“Blake’s head is spinning,” says a source close to the pair.
“Leo is blows hot and cold with her. He likes his space and it’s becoming a regular thing for them to cool things off or even call it quits. One week they broke up twice only to get back together even more wrapped up in each other than before.”
Recent reports claimed Blake was keen to make Leo her husband!
“She wants to land Leo as a husband,” a source said.
“Everything Blake tells me says Leo is serious. They are making plans together and acting like a serious couple.”
Blake is said to be so smitten with Leo that she’s decided to rent a house “a couple of blocks away” from his Hollywood Hills home.
“She needed a place in L.A. and decided to live as close to Leo as she could,” said the source.
“I don’t think she could have gotten a place any closer. She’s jumping in feet first.
“Blake is really into Leo, and is making it obvious.”
Leonardo DiCaprio’s beloved mum Irmelin wasn’t keen on girlfriend Blake Lively so Leo jetted to Italy with his mother, telling her he needs space.
The 36-year-old actor flew to Capri with Irmelin last week and our source says he’s been ignoring Blake’s emails and texts since.
‘She hasn’t heard a thing from him,’ a friend tells us.
‘All she’s seen are pictures of him all over various women at a wedding reception.
‘It’s awful for poor Blake because one minute Leo’s taking her to Verona in Italy and asking her to move in with him and now suddenly he’s gone all cold on her.
‘She feels totally used and humiliated.
‘Blake thinks she was just a rebound for Leo after his relationship with Bar Refaeli ended.
‘She’s been crying her eyes out since and feels so ridiculous.’
Since Blake Lively is already a pretty incredible dresser to begin with, we admit that sometimes we treat her enviable looks with casual yet sustained enthusiasm. Still, every now and then, she manages to blow us away with a particularly amazing outfit like the ethereal Marchesa gown that she wore to a BAFTA dinner. The asymmetrical cut and gauzy appearance of the fabric lent the dress its otherworldly appeal, but it was the seemingly endless arrangement of sparkly crystals along the hem and neckline that made it truly a work of art.
Blake Lively is reportedly feeling “tearful” about her relationship with Leonardo DiCaprio.
The pair have been linked for some time, but went public with their romance in May. They were spotted in France and Italy together, with sources close to the actor claiming he was smitten.
However, things seemed to have cooled in recent weeks. Blake is said to be worried the romance is already on the rocks, and has been turning to her pals for support.
“Blake has been staying with him in Los Angeles or New York most nights, but now it’s like he’s gone from hot to cold,” a source told the British edition of Grazia. “Blake’s friends warned her to be careful. Every day that he doesn’t call her, she becomes more and more tearful.”
Blake is reported to have asked Leonardo to go with her to America Ferrera’s recent wedding, but he decided against attending. She’s now worried her feelings aren’t reciprocated and is worried about the future.
“At first he was the one doing all the chasing, but now the tables have turned and Blake fears it is all over,” the source added.
Blake Lively’s “Gossip Girl” alter-ego Serena Van der Woodsen is the type of girl who eagerly baits the paparazzi, but Lively herself is far from the type who desires that kind of attention.
So when you see the 23-year-old actress on the September cover of Interview magazine wearing the look of a handcuffed femme fatale, don’t assume she’s as bold as that image.
“I’m actually a very shy person,” Lively told interviewer Ben Affleck in the magazine’s cover story. “That’s a big secret, so don’t tell.”
Despite the bubbly and charismatic characters she’s played on television and in movies, it was her upbringing that forced the star out of her shell. Lively’s parents brought her to acting classes with them, which she said helped her break out of her comfort zone.
“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,” Lively said.
The young actress has stayed grounded since making her acting debut at 17 in “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” Growing up in Burbank, California with a family full of actors showed her how to live a relatively normal life under the spotlight of stardom.
“I don’t feel like I ever had any sort of Hollywood upbringing,” Lively said. “So I don’t remember there ever being a downside.”
But there’s also a clear upside: Free food.
“I actually think that was the reason I got into acting,” she told Affleck, who directed the actress in the upcoming movie “The Town,” in which he also acts, alongside Jon Hamm and “Vicky Cristina Barcelona’s” Rebecca Hall.
Lively plays Krista, a 29-year-old single mother who deals drugs in Boston.
A far cry from the Upper East Side, no?
Now we’re going to fast-forward a bit to when Ben and Blake are talking about their work on “The Town.” Apparently Ben was very impressed with Blake’s commitment to her role, so much so he talked for what seemed like half an hour about how amazing she was. A segment:
“You were by far the best, and when I asked you how you got everything down, it turned out that you had tried to work with this one dialect coach, and then tried another one, and then just started doing all of this incredibly thorough, diligent, independent research on your own-seeking out people who spoke the way your character does, seeking out people whose own life experiences you could draw upon. How did you get to the point where that became your approach? Because it’s certainly nothing I ever did at any point in my twenties.”
But it gets even worse! Blake says she is really a shy person, but she has learned she has to act confident to work in Hollywood. This is understandable, and something we’ve heard before from other actresses, and Ben could have maybe followed it up by saying he was able to relate to that sentiment. But no, he goes ultra-flirtatious and says, “I wouldn’t really describe you as shy. That hasn’t been my experience of you.” Her response? “Well, I had to be bold with you!”
AFFLECK: Well, that was the last question. I didn’t get to some others I wanted to ask you, like, “Which day did you find yourself most impressed by me?”
LIVELY: Or am I happy that you don’t wear cashmere turtlenecks anymore.
AFFLECK: Oh, Jesus Christ. I don’t know what pictures you’re looking at. How about: Would you work with me again? When your price is too expensive, can I hire you for scale? I want you to say it now so it’s in a magazine.
LIVELY: Oh, gosh. You’re so tacky! I told you already that I’d never work with you again. Jason Bourne maybe.
AFFLECK: Do you remember when you and I had worked together for months and we were wandering around in Boston and at one point I just randomly pointed to a place and said, “Matt Damon lived there.” And you turned to me and were like, “What? You know Jason Bourne?” [Lively laughs]
LIVELY: Of course I’ll work with you again.
AFFLECK: I’m going to introduce you to Jason Bourne so that you’ll be grateful.
LIVELY: I’m already grateful.
AFFLECK: Now stop trolling the Internet looking for pictures of me and critiquing my wardrobe. Before I went to do this interview somebody said, “Blake is a fashion darling.” All of us can’t be fashion darlings, Blake.
LIVELY: Well, people like you make me fashionable, because if there is no wrong there can be no right.
AFFLECK: You’ve gotten so much more bitchy since we wrapped the film.
LIVELY: But I think you have to say that I’m charming at the end of the interview. I think that’s the rule.
AFFLECK: You’re very charming.
Blake Lively says she doesn’t want to “play it safe” with her career.
The star shot to fame playing New York socialite Serena Van Der Woodsen on the popular American television show Gossip Girl. Although Blake is grateful to have been given her big break on the small screen, she is keen to prove she is a serious actress and doesn’t want to be typecast.
The star can currently be seen in The Town, in which she plays a drug-addicted single mother alongside Ben Affleck. Blake jumped at the opportunity to take on the challenging role and hopes it will help cement her Hollywood status.
“I’m on a very commercial show, so the last thing I want to do is a commercial movie,” Blake explained in the October issue of Marie Claire magazine. “I wanna take risks, I don’t wanna play it safe. I mean, I could probably make more money if I did more commercial projects. It would be nice to buy an apartment but I’m 22 and I don’t need to yet.
“I live in New York City. So, I’m able to differentiate between what I want and need and what I want more is to do great roles.”
Blake has hinted she is keen to focus on her movie career full-time and has cast doubts over her future on Gossip Girl. Although the star still has a few more seasons left on her contract, she admits she is unsure if the show will last that long.
“We have six-year contracts but who knows how long TV shows ever run,” Blake said. “They don’t always go the full season contracted… We’re in season four.”
