Blake Lively - Blake Lively Inspired By Marilyn Monroe

Blake Lively pretends to be Marilyn Monroe on the red carpet.

The 'Gossip Girl' star gets self-conscious at showbiz events and tries to channel the confidence of the Hollywood sex siren to survive the ordeal.

She said: ''I have insecurities like any girl. I used to be really shy and unconfident. I hated being tall. Walking the red carpet is scary, so I pretend to be Marilyn Monroe - someone who owned their sexuality and projected this incredible aura of self-confidence.''

Down-to-earth Blake, 24, prefers staying at home to attending parties and says she feels sexiest when she is cooking.

She said: ''I really like to cook. Cooking makes me feel sexy. I think there's something so sensual about it - the smells, the touches, the flavours, the experience of creating something. And, you know, when you're doing it with someone you love, creating that together. I think it's really attractive.

''I do a little of everything but Italian food is my favurite. And chocolate! Whenever I travel I go to cooking schools. I eat too much that's the problem.''

Blake, the world would be a better place if more people understood the trials and tribulations that Marilyn suffered at the hands of mongrels who were in charge of Hollywood during her short life. A vunerable Marilyn was criminally used and abused by those she thought were her friends and yet has emerged to live on as the most loved, adored and famous female in the history of the world.
