Blake Lively won’t date ‘Savages,’ prefers a funny man
Blake Lively is no stranger to toxic love on screen, from the scandals of “Gossip Girl” to the crime-laced love triangle in Oliver Stone’s new film"Savages.”
But the 24-year-old, who’s currently dating Ryan Reynolds, likes to keep her own love life simple.
“I always love somebody who makes me laugh, who’s fun to be with,” Lively offered to “Access Hollywood” at the “Savages” premiere in L.A. on Monday.
That’s certainly not her experience in Stone’s latest, which costars John Travolta, Salma Hayek, Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson, with the last two playing Lively’s onscreen lovers.
“She is juggling [two men]. The three of them are in a relationship and they’re happy and they all know about each other and they’re all equally in love, " Lively said. “The boys love each other as much as they love the girl, which I find interesting.”
When pressed if she’d ever consider a similar scenario, the actress was clear: “No, no, no, definitely not,” she said. “That is a little too complicated.”
Not as complicated: Lively and Reynolds recently acquired a $2.3-million country house in Bedford, N.Y., where they’re overseeing renovations and a redecoration.
