Don't get me wrong, I think Blake is way better off with Ryan than anyone else, dating Leo for instance gave her too much publicity which led some jealous people in Blake's team to sell her out. But should she not be trying to get roles then spending every breathing moment other that time spent on GG, to be with Ryan. I get it, they are in love n rich n young but hey what abt us? We want to see her do amazing things on the big screen as she is destined to. Maybe its because of GG or maybe she is waiting for Savages to come out and for ppl to change their perception to get more meaty roles? Or maybe the whole "The Bitter Pill" incident kinda brought her down? GG is done for now, I guess? But who is losing out on all this...Us fans, no? Oh well, all we can do is wait, I guess and I am sure until she signs on the dotted line to star in a movie, she will not want the news to leak out now that she saw how cruel ppl can be. How much can a person bear, and I do think its time that Blake gets her dues afterall she has been through this past year n now all she can do is go up. SO finger-crossed, although I have a feeling we will be hearing abt new projects only after the release of Savages, U can never say never rite? I sound selfish but I want as much as Blake as I can get, it that too much to ask. Maybe it is but oh well

Arya, I totally get what you're saying. Believe me, I know the hardest part for us Blake fans is the waiting and waiting for new roles we can celebrate and look forward to. I just want to remind you of what Blake said herself in last month's ELLE issue:

I'm a person that takes time with everything I do. And if I make a decision, it's because I'm incredibly confident in it. I'm not a rash person.
I really like to live by delayed gratification.

And also in this other interview:

...Being so beautiful why you are not starring in romantic comedies?

Blake
: Roles of students from UES aren't interesting for me now. I choose roles which are completely different from my role in GG. This is my principal position.
I have a ton of offers to play in comedies, but I more likely say yes to a conflicting role in a ambiguous film.

It gives more perspective into her selection process. If there's one thing we should know by being fans of Blake, it's to be pleasantly surprised by her. She expects the best for herself and her career and she wouldn't settle for anything less. After all, like Halolulu pointed out, she's spent every weekend since the first week of October with Ryan and yet she still surprised us by getting cast as the lead in Soderbergh movie (however that turned out). She only auditions and considers scripts and parts she's passionate about. She's doing a lot of stuff behind the scenes (Penn even commended her for it in an interview) and working incredibly hard, it's just that we can't see it now and yes, it makes us impatient.

Coming from a background like GG, there's the temptation for her to take a lot of crap and trust me when I say we could have seen her take the lead roles in many bad movies but she understands that she has to establish herself as a talent and a force especially because she's so pretty and people would be willing to write her off because of her looks. She could very easily go the Katherine Heigl / Jennifer Aniston / Kristen Bell rom-com route, and get a lot of money and projects from that but she understands that once she goes down that path of fluff, that's it for her. It would be hard to convince people she's nothing more than a rom-com mediocre actress.

At the same time, there are so many up and coming young actresses fighting for a place as future superstars and so it's gonna be hard for her, again back to Gossip Girl which doesn't help matters at all. But she takes her parts and delivers every time, like she's going to for Savages. Do you know why people actually hate her the most? Because she's not content being mediocre and challenges herself and tussles with A-listers and Oscar nominees for roles. Who was took the Glinda part in Oz that Blake was considering last year? Michelle Williams, 3-time Oscar nominee. Who stole the Soderbergh role from Blake? Rooney Mara, recent Oscar nominee. Who was she tussling with for parts in The Silver Linings Playbook, The Great Gatsby and The Dark Knight Rises? Natalie Portman, Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley, Rachel Weisz, Jennifer Lawrence etc. Which directors is she auditioning for? Auteurs like Christopher Nolan, Darren Aronofsky, Steven Soderbergh, Baz Luhrmann, Oliver Stone, Sam Raimi, Ben Affleck (who is WB's golden boy right now) etc. And they are taking notice and keeping her in mind - David O. Russell considers her a friend. Even the head of Warner Bros. (which is like the 'big boy' studio) is a fan of her talents. Don't underestimate the extent to which GG limits her too, she can't take or even be considered for some roles because of GG's filming schedule.

All I'm saying is be patient. Blake is going to surprise us as she usually does. And also accept that it might take time, she isn't going to sign off on stuff that won't help her in the long run. Who knows she might take a break this summer if she doesn't get any projects worthy of her time rather than working just to work? She's talked about how she likes to travel so she could work on her own character too, which is equally important. And I totally agree with you that she probably doesn't like news of her auditions to come out until she gets the role seeing as how people were savaging her in 2010 for even deigning to audition with the girls I listed above. Just be patient Arya, Blake doesn't disappoint. Remember this time last year? With Lainey all but declaring that Blake was over and that the 'buzz' had worn off? And then less than a week later, we got a triple whammy of roles: Oz, Savages and Hick?

I didn't even intend to write this long lol. I tend to get long-winded :p. I do want to add one last thing that I totally agree that Savages is crucial for her, but from all indications from haters and viewers alike, she totally and completely delivers so that's at least something to look forward to. And Hick? Despite the negative reviews for the movie she, Eddie, and Chloe have been named as bright spots in the movie. I understand the gratification of seeing her on the big screen, but we only want to see the best of her and for that, we'll have to take it one step at a time.

Oh and welcome EternalMagic :hug:

Oh and welcome EternalMagic :hugs:

Ya u r right, Amie. When I say I want to see her on the big screen I don't mean in anything that comes her way or that she works only for the sake of "doing work". I know and love her for her choices , the class she has managed to maintain even though she could have as u said gone the "easy way". I know I have to be patient and I m pretty sure Blake won't dissapoint. But i terribly want to hear some amazing news abt her. The comments I read abt Blake is so frustrating at times, its like ppl have no respect for her. She is capable of so much n just coz ppl can't see it, doesn't mean they should disrespect her. Maybe I just want to show the haters that they are wrong n when we see sth awesome frm her(which is coming soon, no doubt there)..I wanna be like "On ur face sucker" lol, but yeah. I m not criticizing Blake for being in love and happy (she does look happy, doesn't she?)or anything n nor do I want her to make poor choices. The choices she has made until now are very selected n privileged, if I may add. Yes, even Green Lantern. Come'n it was a WB production with Martin Campbell. So for now I m only going to look forward to Hick and Savages and not listen to the haters? :blush:

Thanx y'all I feel so much better now, that I go to talk to u guys abt it. I always need someone to assure me its going to be okay n show me what I should really focus on. U guys are amazing :hug: My family n friends are all nerds altough my cousins love Blake. They find her stunning n one of them lives in Utah n I frequently visit there. So I might bump into Blake if god is kind. Ohhhh, one can only hope :hehe:

Lol Arya. May the odds be in your favor that you bump into her in Utah :laugh: Trust me, I know that feeling about wanting to be like 'in yo face!' kinda like when she got the Soderbergh role at first (boy was that delicious) but you know the haters wont be satisfied until she's down and out of the town. They will never acknowledge anything good about that but it's okay because Blake will keep showing them up starting off with their leader, Lainey. I just love how Blake keeps proving her wrong every single time :D . They try to ignore any positive news about Blake and rather rely on rumors lol. They are so pathetic and it's best to ignore them, or beat them at their own game if you can. That Blake is successful gets them sooo mad and we'll be there down the line, however many years it takes, feeling smug and justified when she gets her first Golden Globe, Screen Actor's Guild, and dare I say, Oscar nomination? The way she's working and choosing her roles wisely now and getting better with each role, it's only a matter of time before she gets there.

And don't worry, rant if you need to. There's always a listening ear here and enough of us to assure you that it's gonna be okay. Lol I know what you mean about your family, my roommate teases me about Blake and tries to get me riled up every time.

Is that Soderbergh movie even going forward? It was supposed to start filming in the spring and I haven't heard much about it, which is strange considering it has such big 'stars' now (and Soderbergh is scheduled to direct Liberace and retire by year's end, so it would seem time is of the essence).

I understand wanting to see her do more work outside of Gossip Girl, but it seems like she's pretty much worked non-stop these past few years. How many times have we seen her commuting between GG and a movie, with little rest in between? That has to take a toll. She said in the Elle interview that she was ready for a break.

And the quality roles and projects for women are few and far between -- and I'm sure it's hard to get auditions, much less win those roles (and even when you win them, it doesn't always work out as we've seen). And there's the obstacles coming from TV and a series like GG... people have a certain image of her. She's almost too famous for the indie world, and yet not quite famous enough for mainstream.

She may want more work even more than we want it for her. Or she may be a little burnt out and feels like she needs to take a step back and recharge. Either way, all I can do as a fan is support her.

I do think it's great that she has a life outside the business and has found someone to share it with. She has said in interviews that those life experiences are important to / inform her work. And she's not the typical actress -- she planned on going to college not becoming an actress. She has a lot of other interests, and says her "real talent" is cooking. So...

Lol yes, all their travels increase the odds of you and other fans seeing her in person. ;)

I dont' care for Blake. This is a young woman very intelligent and very mature :) . Can be seen in the way it manages its relationship with Ryan and how she manages her career. She is faithful to GG because it is the series that gave him his chance despite the role of Serenna lost in consistency. She does not take any role just to be in the spotlight or just to make money. There will always be detractors to criticize or pass judgment on these choices. It's like that and we can not help it. Hollywood is a world that can be dangerous. She is right to protect themselves by being more thoughtful. Furthermore it is right to his privacy prévilégier it gives him a certain stability. Have a person in his life (like ryan) :wub: on which it can rely in hard times is important. There is much competition in this universe but it does not take much: the box office success or critical acclaim interpretation. Gradually it follows its course without betraying and being herself. I hope the film will be savages allowing it to qualify for other opportunities.

Call me a masochist but I came to see GG today. A waste of time. :trout:

This show is getting worse every episode.

Poor Blake , poor Serena. :(

While these stupid writers continue to insist on Blair / Dair this show is not going there.
