In July a new movie is expected to appear with the title ‘Savages’ starring the 24 year old actress, Blake Lively. She seems to be a really important part of the industry at the moment since she managed to become the cover girl of LA Times Magazine. She talked to the magazine about her role in the new crime-thriller.
People were really surprised by the fact that the actress didn’t know what Maxim’s 2012 Hot List is. This is a list of the hottest women of the year and on this list the actress ranked on the 13th position. She asked what the list is and whether or not she made it. When she found out that she did she said ‘awesome’ and that this is something she would tell her children one day.
In the movie she plays alongside with some big names of the movie industry, such as John Travolta, Taylor Kitsch, Benicio del Toro and Salma Hayek. The film was created by Oliver Stone. When people asked him about the criticism that Blake received lately he just said that this is the price women have to pay if they are beautiful and blonde.
In the movie Lively plays the part of a woman named O that is kidnapped, raped, imprisoned and tortured. The executive producer and the co-screenwriter of the movie says that there is more to her role than meets the eye. There is a reason for which she is in the center of the poster. He promises that she will be the most interesting kidnapping victim that people have ever seen.
According to him the role of the victim is usually easy to forget. However, Lively managed to add color and strength to it. This is something new in the world of thrillers.
We already know that Lively brought some changes to her character. She said that the character of the victim was created by men. She also added that it is difficult for men to know how it’s like to be a young woman. So she has a really interesting approach to the character.
The actress said that if the character does something that she doesn’t really understand, she at least tries to find the reason of the character’s actions. In the novel the character is a pessimist, but for Lively it was important for her character to stay hopeful, adding strength to her character.
