Not everyone is psyched about the Veronica Mars movie funded by Kickstarter.

Blake Lively would just as soon not give Gossip Girl producers any ideas.

The actress' breakout role as Serena Van Der Woodsen helped put her on the map, but she wants nothing to do with any Gossip Girl movie at any point.

According to reports, this is actually being talked about.

Producers and the beautiful blonde’s former cast members are said to be “infuriated” that the 25-year-old doesn’t want to sign on for a film based on the show.

Stop us if you've heard this one before, but gorgeous Gossip Girl cast member Blake Lively is apparently nothing like her character on Gossip Girl! Crazy!

Primary case in point: Blake does not party or get around.

The 24-year-old actress tells Marie Claire that “People like to draw parallels between my life and the scandalous stories on Gossip Girl."

"I do dress similarly to my character, so they think, She lives this life on and off set ... I recently shared how many boyfriends I’ve had [four], and people were like, ‘That’s impossible!’ But it’s true."

"I’ve been with very few people. If I’m not with somebody who really excites or inspires me, then I’d rather be by myself.”

Those four guys would be Ryan Reynolds, Leonardo DiCaprio, Penn Badgley and ... the guy before Penn Badgley. Lucky fellas!

On preparing for her Savages role, Blake told the magazine, “I went to the gun range and learned how to shoot a gun for the first time."

One hundred episodes of drama, scandal, snark and Gossip Girl fashion.

January 30 marks the 100th installment of the CW hit we know and love, and on Saturday night, the cast celebrated the completion of its filming with a red carpet event at Cipriani Wall Street in New York. It was, as expected, a stylish affair.

In addition to their male co-stars, Blake Lively and Leighton Meester were on hand, albeit a few hours late, leaving the cameras breathlessly awaiting their arrival. Both stars were a bit under-dressed for the cold weather ... but looked fabulous.

Who looked the most fabulous, though? Vote in our Fashion Face-Off!

Unlike her TV alter ego, Blake Lively doesn't party, get fake married, kill people, straddle her best friend's boyfriend during bar stool sex or any of that stuff.

But when it comes to Gossip Girl fashion, she and Serena van der Woodsen mesh.

“I dress just like Serena!” the 22-year-old actress tells the November issue of Nylon. “I own half her wardrobe, so it’s far too similar to how I dress!”

She loves the oddity of looking like her real self, but being someone so different.

“I feel ridiculous at times with her, because I’m, you know, killing someone or marrying someone, but I look like me. I’m like, ‘Oh, this is absurd.’”

Blake Lively in the new issue of Nylon.

Having her character's style be similar to her own isn't something common for Blake, who is rumored to be getting engaged to Penn Badgley in the near future.

“I hide behind the character’s hair, makeup or clothes. If I can transform myself, people will believe that’s who that is. And I need to believe that’s who that is.”

One fringe benefit of trying out a character? Getting into new products that she might not try on herself, including her latest beauty obsession: press-on nails.

“They’re really amazing,” she says. That and free handbags that may fetch four or even five figures in a boutique. Talk about job perks. Some girls have it all.

Despite barely scraping together three million viewers a week, Gossip Girl has become arguably the most talked-about, culturally relevant series on television.

It's also going to have about three million sets of parents up in arms and shaking their heads once this round of photos from Rolling Stone starts circulating.

BEST. SHOW. EVER. Does anything else need to be said?

Since only, like, BFFs would eat the same ice cream cone, suck each other's fingers and deep-throat Twizzlers, we assume co-stars Blake Lively and Leighton Meester - occasionally rumored to be feuding - are totally cool with each other.

As are we, with them.

If you don't watch the show, and haven't been convinced to by the photo above, Rolling Stone calls the drama "not a conventional TV hit," "sharp and connected to modern life, references, music" and "sexily subversive." Case? Rested.

As the CW readies for a deluge of hate mail from parents of impressionable teens and 'tweens, click to enlarge more pics of the Gossip Girl cast in Rolling Stone ...
