Blake Lively doesn't like hanging out with other actors.

The 'Gossip Girl' star isn't comfortable in the world of celebrity - despite dating co-star Penn Badgley - and doesn't "collect" friends.

She said: "You know, I don't have many friends that are actors, the ones I do have are people I've worked on films with for months. I don't go around collecting people for my BlackBerry because I want to have phone friends."

The 22-year-old beauty also admitted she doesn't know how long she will play Serena van der Woodsen in 'Gossip Girl' - which is about to begin transmitting its fourth season - and plans to make "risky" career choices.

She said: "We have six-year contracts but who knows how long TV shows ever run. They don't always go the full-term contracted. We're in season four."

Discussing her decision to work on upcoming Ben Affleck film 'The Town', she added to Marie Claire magazine: "I'm on a very commercial show so the last thing I want to do is a commercial movie. I wanna take risks. I don't wanna play it safe. I mean, I could probably make more money if I did more commercial projects.

"It would be nice to buy an apartment but I'm 22 and I don't need it yet."
