GOSSIP GIRL BLAKE LIVELY HEATS UP “THE TOWN”
Let’s pause and consider Gossip Girl Blake Lively’s role in “The Town.” She plays Krista, the town’s prettiest girl who has been worn down by lack of money and opportunity, single motherhood, and booze. Her clothes are cheap and tight and she sleeps around, but only has eyes for Ben Affleck’s character. He comes from a bank robbing family but is still considered a good catch in that environment. Blake did a great job of creating a dismal character nothing like we’ve seen her do before, and we have new admiration for her.
