Blake Lively's Cover Shoot Video

Behind the scenes with MC's July cover girl!

© 2011 Copyright Notice


Hi. This is Blake Lively. Welcome to my Mary Claire photo shoot. I probably feel the most alive when I'm with my family and also when I'm cooking. And those are normally- those only coincide with each other. I love to cook with my family and that's the best. You know, I have all my nieces and nephews there and, you know, you really use your hands and it's such an experience for all of the senses. You know, the touch, the smell, also the sight. So, I [unknown]. A chocolate is probably like the gift-giving pleasure. I mean, I don't stop eating chocolate, chocolate milk, chocolate bar, another chocolate bar, another chocolate bar, empty chocolate bar. [unknown] What would I tell my 17-year-old self? There's a lot of pressure when you graduate in high school and you'd have to know right away what you're gonna do for a living. What I was saying to myself then, because I didn't know what I wanna do for living is just try things. Just go out and explore and try these things because that's the only way to really see what you wanna do and what you're good at. But it's really easy when you do one thing to just tunnel vision with that. But I really want it, you know, you never get too locked in one thing. Always, you know, juggle all of my passions. It's scary to be stuck in one thing and then that becomes work in passion.
