Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively recently revealed that she feels insecure about her appearance, especially when she is at red carpet events where cameras flash away like crazy. Fortunately, she has found a way of dealing with it. She simply must imagine herself as one of the greatest sex symbols of all time.
“I have insecurities like any girl.” she said. “I used to be really shy and unconfident. I hated being tall.” Although it’s hard to imagine why someone as stunning as Lively would have reason to feel insecure about her appearance, it just proves that, despite her celebrity status, she is only human.
Unlike the majority of the human race, however, Blake Lively is under public pressure to look her best, and that is surely intimidating. “Walking the red carpet is scary,” she noted. “So I pretend to be Marilyn MonroeÂ—someone who owned their sexuality and projected this incredible aura of self-confidence.” It doesn’t sound like a bad trick. After all, who better to channel than Marilyn Monroe to feel like a knockout!
