Blake Lively's 'swell life' is in 'Vogue'

Blake LivelyAt 22, Blake Lively already has another Vogue cover under her belt: The “Gossip Girl” actress graces the magazine’s June issue just a year after she snagged the Vogue cover shot in February of 2009.

Lively, who spent part of her childhood in California, took a break from filming “Green Lantern” in New Orleans and headed to La Jolla, California with writer Hamish Bowles to catch some waves.

Although Lively may seem to be the epitome of a surfer girl, she'd only picked up a board once before at the age of 13 to surf at Manhattan Beach, and she walked away from it with a bloody nose. But, she was still game to suit up for Vogue - and spill a few (really, just a few) deets about her new movie.

“I’m going to be the coolest aunt ever,” Lively said of her role as Carol Ferris in the upcoming Martin Campbell film based on the DC Comics superhero. “All I want is to be a hero to my nephews and nieces.”

For Lively, that means intense training with a stunt coordinator who’s worked on the “Bond” movies as well as acrobats from Cirque du Soleil.

“Our director likes our fights real close and dirty,” the actress said. “I’m 40 feet in the air, spinning around…do that for ten minutes, and you should see your body the next day! It’s so exhilarating, so thrilling – and nauseating.”

But of course, as this is Vogue, Lively also spent her surf time posing for photographs with photographer Mario Testino and famed “surf deity” Rob Machado and his crew. A few of the pictures are included above and below, but you can see the full gallery here. Fair warning: the photos may make you hate her.

To read the full interview with Lively, pick up the June issue of Vogue.

    A friend of mine dated Blake a few years back...actually, as she was still filming Accepted. I had the pleasure of meeting her on a couple occassions. Very, very, very down to earth person. Obviously that term is used way too much, but I don't know how else to describe her. She's as normal as a person can get, and would be best friend with all my female friends from college.

    I also feel that this is why she's seen as being so attractive. Because she is stunningly beautiful or anything extraordinary. She's a pretty, average looking kid who viewers can readily identify with because she looks so much like people we see on a daily basis.

    And there is no chance that she's had any cosmetic surgery.

    Cute Gal.
    Looking forward to seeing her as "Carol Ferris" in GL.
    Hope she doesn't ruin her body with Tats like M. Fox and A. Jolie have done with their bodies.

    I heart her!!! She's great and I love the fact that at 22 she's on the right track on her career and not spending her time partying around. I can see her being one of Hollywood's best in the next ten years.

    All the best for you Blake stay being good!

    I actually think she is really pretty, and she seems to have a good head on her shoulder. I don't watch "Gossip Girl" but I hear she is talented too – good luck staying out of trouble Blake.

    Am I the only one that thinks there is something severely wrong with her mouth area? Bad plastic surgery?
