That vixen Blake Lively, she just drives men wild.
As crazy, mixed-up Serena van der Woodsen on the CW’s Gossip Girl, she’s always wrecking families and breaking hearts, but we just heard that Blake’s taken her show on the road by causing strife between brothers Alec and William Baldwin.
How did Blake do to come between the two sibling actors, and why is one of them “not thrilled”? Find out:
OK, OK, the Baldwin brothers aren’t really feuding over Blake Lively (who, for perspective, was a one year old when Alec Baldwin’s breakout movie Beetlejuice came out), but she is working with both guys this year. And that’s causing just a leetle bit of bad blood (in jest, of course) on the part of William Baldwin, who guest stars as Serena van der Woodsen’s wayward dad William van der Woodsen on Gossip Girl.
Younger Baldwin brother William says, “What really breaks my heart is that she’s doing a movie with my brother, Alec—and she’s playing my brother Alec’s wife. I said to her, ‘I get to play your father and my brother Alec gets to play your husband? Where’s the justice in that?’ And she giggles and says, ‘That would make you Alec’s father-in-law.’ ”
The younger Baldwin continued, saying, “Oh great, that’s exactly what my ego needed, you put grandpa out to pasture during hiatus and go run off and do a movie with my brother Alec and you get to play his wife. Everything [Alec’s doing] regarding the Oscars, movies and 30 Rock, I’m thrilled; playing Serena’s husband where I’m playing her father, I’m not thrilled.”
BTW, Gossip Girl fans, Baldwin says we shouldn’t be afraid to trust William this time, because now he’s got his kids’ best interests at heart. He says, “Lily called and said, ‘I need your help.’ And even if she didn’t say it he would be on the next plane, he would be there to help to deal with the family crisis because he loves her, he loves his kids.”
Do you trust William van der Woodsen or is he obviously still a shady character? Hit the comments!
