Blake Lively to Ben Affleck: 'People Like You Make Me Fashionable'
After having to shoot a steamy love scene with Ben Affleck on the very first day of filming their upcoming thriller The Town, Blake Lively quickly became comfortable with her handsome costar. So comfortable in fact, that in the September issue of Interview magazine, the stylish Gossip Girl had no qualms dishing out a little fashion advice to Ben. “People like you make me fashionable, because if there is no wrong there can be no right,” the 23-year-old star said to Affleck in a playful phone interview from Paris. Putting her Fashion Week run on hold, Blake mocks the “cashmere turtlenecks” that Ben is so fond of wearing. Ben’s response to Blake’s style critique? “Oh, Jesus Christ. I don’t know what pictures you’re looking at.” And while the Oscar-winning Ben may have more experience on the red carpet than Blake, the fashion-forward Gossip Girl star has definitely solidified her place on many a Best Dressed list. Maybe Ben’s stylish wife Jennifer Garner should toss his Red Sox hats and T-shirts and plan a shopping trip for his next premiere!
