Blake Lively’s heading into her final season of Gossip Girl, and she tells Bullett that the end of the road is “bittersweet,” but she’s ready for the next thing. “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 says. Where is her best quality of work? Is it in Oliver Stone’s Savages? “Blake wasn’t quite perfect for the role, but she was certainly in that ballpark,” Stone says. So … no, probably not in that.
