Blake Lively: the best thing in acting is getting free food
The -Gossip Girl- star admits she loves the hospitality she receives when she-s on set and joked it was one of the reasons she wanted to get into the acting world.
Blake - who comes from a family of actors - said: "I don`t feel like I ever had any sort of Hollywood upbringing. I got to travel and visit my family on set. I got to eat craft service. I actually think that was the reason I got into acting: the freefood. I literally remember on my first job being like, `Yes! I get to have craft service every day!` "
Despite being one of Hollywood-s biggest young stars, the 23-year-old beauty admits she is actually very shy but has become more confident as her career grows.
She told Interview magazine: "I`m actually a very shy person - that`s a big secret, so don`t tell. But being in acting classes pushed me to break out of that a little bit. It`s like nature versus nurture: I`m naturally very shy, but I was brought up in a way where I had to get up and get out of that.
"With acting, I think half of it is just acting confident. We stand on these red carpets and pose in these dresses, but we`re all only so confident. It doesn`t mean we think we`re great looking or anything. It`s all a facade."
