On her sex-symbol status back in the days:

My sexuality made me very uncomfortable. I remember my first Maxim shoot, they were telling me to pose a certain way, and I was like, “Agh! I’m 19. I’m a virgin. I don’t even know how to do that.” It was so awkward.

… says Jessica.

  1. Well, the reason she was always typecast as sexy characters is because she can’t really act. Every sexy actress will have no problem with getting serious roles when there is actual talent involved.

    • But that’s why she was so easily pressured into it. Really, this is only an option for women too and there’s something to that. Shouldn’t be that way.

    • I agree that she can’t act, but she was actually quite good in Dark Angel. I don’t know if the role of Max was close enough to her current persona to work or what, but she did carry her weight in the show. (On a second thought it makes sense though. Potraying someone who can’t express emotion properly really suited her. :D) The only moment in the show where you realise she’s a bad actress is the episode where she has to play two different clones. Unfortunately the only way to tell these two identical charachters apart is that the other wears glasses. Even then it wasn’t “wow, she can’t act” it was just “wow, she can only avt this one role and that’s it”.

  2. I’m not a fan of Blake Lively’s personality because she reminds me of an 00s Jessica Alba. One hyper-sexual role after the next, followed by talking out the opposite side of the mouth pandering in interviews to win women over.

    I’m a virgin. I’m classy.
    I’ve never done a sexual role.
    I don’t have to do sexual roles like other actresses.
    I’m classy.
    I’m classy.

    It worked for Alba, and it’s been effective for Lively.

    People don’t watch actions – they listen to what you say about yourself, then just run with that. It’s working for everyone from Erica Girardi to Donald Trump.

  3. shoot, i forgot how hot she was in dark angel. mmmm.. and how hot MIchael, that lead guy was too. He was 35 when she stared dating him, they made a good looking couple

  4. Doesn’t sound like her sexuality made her uncomfortable, rather that others sexualizing her made her uncomfortable.
