The Blake Lively nude picture scandal wasn't directly addressed last night at the MTV Movie Awards, but it was referenced in a few thinly-veiled cracks.
As you've likely heard by now, a bevy of smoking hot pics purported to be Blake hit the Internet last week ... with most of them not showing her face.
Her reps were quick to issue a statement to let the media know that Blake Lively has NEVER taken nude photos and that the ones released are fake.
The alleged hacker responsible begged to differ, releasing batch #2.
Give Blake credit. If nothing else, she showed up to the MTV Movie Awards to promote Green Lantern as scheduled, and endured jokes at her expense.
It was rumored yesterday that she would poke fun at the scandal herself. That did not end up happening, although host Jason Sudeikis did the honors.
Introducing her, Sudeikis said that Ryan Reynolds would be joined by "Someone that we believe is the real Blake Lively though she won't confirm it."
Even Reese Witherspoon, one of the big MTV Movie Award winners this year, got in on the action with a light-hearted, well-timed shot at Blake.She bestowed some wisdom on the youngsters in the audience: "If you take naked pictures of yourself with your cell phone, you hide your face!"
"It's possible to be a good girl. I'm going to try to make it cool."
As for Lively herself, she had no comment. While she ventured backstage to the press room to take photos (interesting to note that she's quite covered up for once), she declined to answer reporters' questions.
There you have it. So the question remains ...
Are the purported racy pics real or fake?
