Blake Lively Shoots Down “Nude” Pics Controversy

Blake Lively doesn’t have any nude photos, a spokeswoman for the actress said on Tuesday after purported naked photographs of the “Gossip Girl” star appeared on several gossip web sites.

“The photos of Blake Lively which have just surfaced on various websites … are 100 percent FAKE,” the spokeswoman said, according to Reuters. “Blake has never taken nude photos of herself.” The alleged pictures, five of them, show a naked blond woman apparently taking photographs of herself in front of a bathroom mirror. The spokeswoman also warned publishers from taking advantage of the situation, saying that the 23-year-old actress is ready to take any legal action necessary to protect her reputation.

Lively has appeared in several films, including this year’s “Green Lantern” and 2010’s critically acclaimed “The Town.” However, she is best known for her role as Serena van der Woodsen on “Gossip Girl.” She is rumored to be dating Leonardo DiCaprio, who has recently separated from supermodel Bar Rafaeli.
