"Gossip Girl" may only have one season left, but Blake Lively isn't shedding any tears over saying goodbye to Serena van der Woodsen.
In a recent interview with Bullett magazine, the actress admitted that she's ready to leave the show.
"I think the best way to describe it is like someone who really enjoyed high school, and is like, I’m a senior and I can’t wait for the next thing! 'Gossip Girl' was so great, but what’s the next challenge in life? Because, you know, six years is a long time," Lively said. "And as an actor who plays a caricature of myself on the show, I don’t think I’d say, watch 'Gossip Girl' for my best quality of work. But I am very lucky to have had that experience.”
A final season of "Gossip Girl" isn't all Lively has on her plate. She also stars in Oliver Stone's "Savages" as a a young woman who is kidnapped and held hostage by a drug cartel. The movie is due in theaters July 6.
“I think it’s really hard for people to digest that these privileged kids are in a three-way relationship,” she says of the film, which involves sex scenes with both Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson. “Your heroes are all sleeping with each other, but they’re also in love. It’s very easy to dislike them, so when my character gets kidnapped, it’s like, ‘Well, good riddance!’ My greatest challenge was to make her life worthy of saving, to find the heart in this story.”
