Last month at Cannes, Blake Lively came to Woody Allen’s defense, because she was cast in his Cafe Society and that’s what you do when somebody gives you job and you have to try to reconcile that with the fact that the person who gave you a job rapes little girls. Is that ideal? No. Is it just some shit you kinda half to do? I guess. Then while still at Cannes, Blake Lively posted this picture and the Internet did what it generally does best when some expresses an idea or thought: they had an unhinged meltdown. Now it’s June. And Blake Lively sat down with Hamptons Magazine:
“[Woody] creates a very pleasant set where everybody’s just happy to be there and happy to be making a movie, and happy to be a part of film history,” says Lively. “For him to have that confidence in you almost gives you the confidence in yourself to just go with the flow. And those are the moments that he really likes, the found moments, the moments that aren’t written but just happen.”
Uh huh. Mmm hmm. Okay. I see. Maybe get up from your seat now and walk out. You should just walk oh god Blake no.
It’s really cool to work with a director who’s done so much, because he knows exactly what he wants. But he’s very empowering.
Shit. Granted, people who read something called “Hamptons magazine” are the same people who watch Woody Allen movies, but what they don’t understand is that Twitter can only read a few sentences at a time. This didn’t play well. It might if you did something like “replace a word in a movie title with ’empowering’” or something like that.
