It's hard to imagine Serena van der Woodsen, Blake Lively's sophisticated, sexy, Upper East Side alter ego, batting a single perfect eyelash over something as trivial as a Broadway musical.
"I'm a huge Rent-head," Lively told Vanity Fair for a recent feature. "I met Adam Pascal the other night and I got all goofy and weird."
It's all a bit rich, but just try prying your daughter away.
It's also a world away from Burbank, where Lively enjoyed a childhood that sounds disturbingly normal for someone with an actor dad, four siblings in the business, and a mom who managed child stars. Lively sang in the high-school choir and, on school-spirit days, dressed head to toe in Bulldog blue and white. She bakes.
She still says, "Oh my gosh."
Her first professional acting job was playing the laser-guided soccer vixen Bridget in 2005's The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. The sequel is due out next summer.
So what's her plan for not falling into the young-celebrity rabbit hole, the one monitored by TMZ and littered with undergarments, D.U.I.'s, and the residue from Wilmer Valderrama's hair products?
"You just behave yourself. How about that?"
