TEETOTAL BLAKE LIVELY BRINGS A BOTTLE OF GIN TO THE INTERVIEW


I don’t usually drink while doing an interview and I'm not fond of gin but Blake Lively insists. She pulls a bottle of gin and some plastic cups out of her bag and pours me a large one when we meet in New York at the Crosby Street Hotel. 

  Then she confesses: "I don't drink. This is what is fun for me---- I get to get everyone else drunk and enjoy the repercussions."

  The gin, she says, is from hubby Ryan Reynolds company, Aviation American Giin, although she hasn't tried it herself. 

"I don’t like the taste of alcohol but I am the at home mixologist and everybody is like 'Wait, why would you have the girl who doesn’t drink make me a drink? I don’t want her to make me a drink.

 "But I love mudding the berries or squeezing the citrus or making twists."

  In her new movie, the comedy-drama  A Simple Favor, 30-year-old Blake plays a martini-swigging mother who leaves her son with her best friend, played by Anna Kendrick, and then disappears. 

  "We were always struggling with 'is it a thriller or is it a comedy?'" she says.
