While gossip websites circulated a series of photographs purporting to show the “Gossip Girl” actress posing naked, Blake and Leo were seen relaxing and laughing onboard motoryacht SEVEN SEAS, Speilberg’s multi-million dollar superyacht, during the recent Cannes Film Festival 2011.
Lively’s spokeswoman issued a statement saying the photos aren’t real. “The photos of Blake Lively which have just surfaced on various websites … are 100 percent FAKE,” the spokeswoman said. “Blake has never taken nude photos of herself.“
The Internet was abuzz last week, as the five photos of a naked, busty blond taking snapshots of herself with an iPhone in front of a bathroom mirror spread among major celeb-watcher websites. Celebrity blogger Perez Hilton
wrote, “Blake Lively won’t be happy about this,” while site Zap2It, suggested the pictures were several years old.Lively will take legal action against any outlets that publish the photos, the spokeswoman added.
Lively rose to fame in the teen television soap “Gossip Girl.” Earlier this year she was hired as the new face of Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag ad campaign.
