Blake Lively, you’re annoying.
I know, she’s one of those actresses who is all about family, fun and looking like a Disney princess- and I should just let it go. But there’s something about her that annoys me TO MY CORE. The smug grin? The Gwyneth Paltrow-esque entitlement? I’m not sure I can put my finger on it, but maybe you can, after you read snippets of this interview she did with USA Today. Here are the highlights:
On her Cannes outfits: “It’s funny, I didn’t realize I was dressing like a Disney princess until people told me,” says Lively, 28, sampling a spread of pastries and gelato at Tribeca’s Greenwich Hotel. Her favorite may have been Vivienne Westwood Couture’s powder-blue, Cinderella-style creation. “I remember going to Disneyland as a kid and thinking, ‘Ah, I want to do that one day.’ You get to live out a bit of your childhood fantasies when you wear a ball gown like that.”
On auditioning for Woody Allen’s Cafe Society: “I didn’t know anything about the movie,” Lively says. “It didn’t matter. It was being part of a film with an iconic filmmaker and somebody that writes complicated women.”
On the Allen rape joke at Cannes:“That was very strange, to have people joking about such sensitive things,” she says. “To speak to anyone’s personal life is a very, very dangerous thing.”
On her marriage with Ryan Reynolds: “We’ve both given up projects that we really love because we can’t keep our family together,” Lively says. “People often think their career is something they have to chase and maintain, but for us, we said, ‘Let’s always chase and maintain our personal life.’
On her family: “This is a career that’s like the stock market: You’ve got to stay hot while you’re hot. But your family, that’s the real thing that gives you security and success and happiness.”

See what I mean? She’s just so…status quo. And I think it’s going to get old.
