So THIS Is What Blake Lively Really Thinks Of Gossip Girl?

So THIS Is What Blake Lively Really Thinks Of Gossip Girl?

The actress has admitted to having concerns over some of the plots.

Blake Lively has been speaking pretty frankly about Gossip Girl, the TV show that made her a global name.

Are you ready to hear this?

The actress – who played insanely popular and glamorous party girl Serena Van Der Woodsen – reckons the programme didn’t always set a good example for viewers.

In case you’ve never seen it (we urge you to spend this weekend catching up on Netflix if so), the show follows a group of privileged teens from New York’s Upper East Side whose lives are documented by a blogger.

The mysteriously individual, who writes under the guise of Gossip Girl, loves nothing more than exposing people’s scandalous secrets - and it seems that no one is safe. 

To give you more of an idea about what Blake, 27, means, the plot of the drama series, which ran from 2007 - 2012, was often dark and covered some rather risqué topics. 

'People loved it, but it always felt a little personally compromising - you want to be putting a better message out there,’ she revealed to Female First.

‘When parents would say, “My teenager is watching your show,” I wanted to say, “Hold on. Why? Are you having a talk with them after?”

‘From the drug use to the point where we’re killing people, it’s sexual and salacious.’

Despite this, Blake - who became a mum for the first time at the end of last year - only has good things to say about the storylines which saw her character getting on with Leighton Meester’s alter-ego Blair Waldorf.

Again, for anyone who’s not aware, it’s fair to say that Serena and BFF Blair had a pretty explosive relationship at times.

‘I loved it when they put Blair and Serena as best friends supporting each other.'
