The National Enquirer claims Gossip Girl star Blake Lively wants to drop her teenybopper image ... by dropping her pants and everything else for Playboy.
Please, National Enquirer. Let this be one of your Rielle Hunter or Rachel Uchitel scoops and not one of your erroneous reports about Brangelina's demise.
The mostly disreputable celebrity gossip rag says Blake won't be coming cheap - the actress is asking a whopping $2.5 million to bare all for the mag.
The 22-year-old started to consider posing nude after making the movie The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. She sort of had a creepy nude scene in that.
Is Playboy the next big career move for Blake?
Will this hot Gossip Girl star grace the pages of Playboy?
“Playboy had already been calling her. She figures a Playboy spread now will really give her career some heat," a source said, noting that her family is divided.
Blake’s family is divided over whether she should do the photo shoot if Playboy meets her price: “Blake’s mom has been in the business a long time, and she knows Kim Basinger and other actresses really benefited," the source said.
“But her dad is old-school. He says, ‘Over my dead body!’”
Blake’s reps deny that the starlet wants to pose naked, but the source insists it’s part of her plan to break away from her Gossip Girl image once and for all.
“She doesn’t want to get lumped in with the Jonas Brothers!” added the source. “This would distance her from tween fans and put her in the adult world.”
Our take? There's a greater chance last night's episode of The Bachelor was not staged than this actually happening. But teenage boys sure can dream.
