Blake Lively is best known for her role as Serena on CW’s ‘Gossip Girl’, but soon you’ll also be seeing her alongside Ben Affleck in the film ‘The Town.’ Lively spoke with US Weekly revealing that she was initially rejected for the film role because she was too young.
“My part was supposed to be a 37-year-old. I was like, ‘I have to play this.’ And they’re like, ‘No, you’re not 37,'” Lively explained. “I took a train to Boston and auditioned for Ben and fought for the role, and he gave me the job on the spot. They rewrote it so I’m 29.”
‘The Town’ will be out in theaters in 2010.
