Blake Livley is in Interview

Ben Affleck interviewed Blake Lively for Interview magazine and got a little flirty. But what do you expect. It’s Ben Affleck. Quotes and photos after the jump.

AFFLECK: I always have to remind myself how young you are. You were 3 when Good Will Hunting [1997] came out.

LIVELY: [laughs] Not quite.

AFFLECK: And you’ve never even seen it. That felt good to me.

LIVELY: You were in Good Will Hunting?

AFFLECK: But you have your head on pretty straight. You and I had to do a sex scene on the first day of shooting, and you were very poised and comfortable about it-more mature than some of the crew members.

LIVELY: Well, I have a big family and no one ever treated me like a child. They always treated me like an adult, like an equal. But with acting, I think half of it is just acting confident. We stand on these red carpets and pose in these dresses, but we’re all only so confident. It doesn’t mean we think we’re great looking or anything. It’s all a fa├žade. But the sex scene was really awkward. It was my first day, so thank you for that.

AFFLECK: You’re welcome.

LIVELY: I guess it was good to break the ice. [laughs]

AFFLECK: So before you got to Paris, you were down in New Orleans doing Green Lantern, which is a big Hollywood superhero movie. You’re playing the secretary of the Air Force or something?

LIVELY: Secretary? I own the company! I play a fighter pilot. Are you intimidated now?

AFFLECK: So you’re playing a much older character-a person with a lot of responsibility in regards to airplanes and that kind of stuff.

LIVELY: Did you see Pearl Harbor [2001]? My character has the same kind of position as the lead character in that.

AFFLECK: Well, that was the last question. I didn’t get to some others I wanted to ask you, like, “Which day did you find yourself most impressed by me?”

LIVELY: Or am I happy that you don’t wear cashmere turtlenecks anymore.

AFFLECK: I’m going to introduce you to Jason Bourne so that you’ll be grateful.

LIVELY: I’m already grateful.

AFFLECK: Now stop trolling the Internet looking for pictures of me and critiquing my wardrobe. Before I went to do this interview somebody said, “Blake is a fashion darling.” All of us can’t be fashion darlings, Blake.

LIVELY: Well, people like you make me fashionable, because if there is no wrong there can be no right.

AFFLECK: You’ve gotten so much more bitchy since we wrapped the film.

LIVELY: But I think you have to say that I’m charming at the end of the interview. I think that’s the rule.

AFFLECK: You’re very charming.

I’m just surprised Ben didn’t have a bottle of Jack in one hand and wasn’t patting his leg with the other motioning for Blake to sit on his lap during this thing. Did he have the flu or something?
