Blake Lively ‘nude’ pictures fake, says publicist

2011-06-01 07:11

Los Angeles – A series of widely circulated photographs purporting to show Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively posing naked are “100% fake”, her spokeswoman said yesterday.

The internet was abuzz late in the day as the five photos of a naked busty blond taking snapshots of herself with an iPhone in front of a bathroom mirror spread among major gossip websites.

“Blake Lively won’t be happy about this,’’ said celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, noting that the 23-year-old starlet has just reportedly started dating Leonardo DiCaprio.

Rival site Zap2It, noting the early generation iPhone and different shaped nose, suggested the pictures were several years old.

In four of the pictures, the woman’s face was partially concealed by her phone. The fifth was too blurry to make a definitive call. But a spokeswoman for the squeaky clean actress was in doubt.

“The photos of Blake Lively that have just surfaced on various websites ... are 100 percent FAKE,’’ the spokeswoman said. “Blake has never taken nude photos of herself.’’

Moreover, Lively will take legal action against any outlets that publish the photos, the spokeswoman added.

Lively rose to fame in the teen television soap Gossip Girl, and had a sex scene in the 2010 crime thriller The Town.

Earlier this year, she signed on as the new face of French fashion house Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag ad campaign.
