"Gossip Girl" star Blake Lively talks sleeping with a much older man - Alan Arkin - in her new Oscar-buzzed film, "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee."
At the L.A. junket, she admitted it seemed weird when she first read the script. But then she realized that young Pippa is not looking for a sexual partner. She's looking for Daddy.
"It's not lust that attracts her to him. It's that she doesn't have a parent. It's him fulfilling that hole of a parent. He's the first person that guides her, and that provides her security and comfort, so that's what their relationship was about. So, we weren't busy trying to fabricate sexual chemistry."
OK, and the naked bed scene?
She admits that anytime one is in strategically placed clothes taped on your body, in front of some strangers., there's a discomfort factor.
We bet lots of people will watch Pippa Lee just for those scenes.
