Blake Lively, the American actress and star of 'Gossip Girl', is considering legal action after a number of fake explicit photographs of her began circulating online. Blake Lively, who is reportedly dating the Hollywood actor Leonardo Dicaprio, has vehemently denied that she is the individual featured in the shots.
The actress's representative made a statement shortly after the images began circulating on Tuesday evening (1st June 2011), telling People Magazine, "The photos of Blake Lively which have just surfaced on various websites including Perez Hilton and Zap2it are 100 percent fake", adding, "Blake has never taken nude photos of herself". Lively, who recently starred in the action movie 'The Town' and will appear in the forthcoming 'Green Lantern', is now considering suing the source of the images. Her representative added, "Blake will pursue legal action against the publication which initially published these photographs and any other outlets that republish them in any manner". Five photographs of a woman posing in front of a mirror popped up on numerous gossip sites yesterday. The photographs were allegedly taken using an early-generation iPhone.
Blake Lively, who was previously in a relationship with the actor Kelly Blatz, was spotted holding hands with DiCaprio during an after-dinner stroll in Monte Carlo on 27th May 2011. An eyewitness told U.S Weekly, "He had introduced Blake as his girlfriend. I would say they're totally smitten!".
