Nude photos of a woman alleged to be “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively surfaced on Tuesday and a rep for Lively says the photos are not the actress and says she is prepared to take legal action.
“The photos of Blake Lively which have just surfaced on various websites including Perez Hilton, Zap2it are 100 percent FAKE,” Lively’s rep said in a statement to Access Hollywood on Wednesday. “Blake has never taken nude photos of herself.
“Blake will pursue legal action against the publication which initially published these photographs and any other outlets that republish them in any manner,” the statement continued.
The alleged racy photos of Blake might be fake, but the “Green Lantern” actress was indeed recently photographed — albeit, strolling the streets of Portofino, Italy with Leonardo DiCaprio. The duo, who has been spotted holding hands, were first rumored to be an item after they were seen in Cannes, France together.
Blake will next been seen on the big screen with Ryan Reynolds in “Green Lantern,” which hits theaters on June 17.
