Lately, Blake Lively is finding herself a long way from Manhattan’s Upper East Side, her usual stomping grounds on the CW hit Gossip Girl. In the superhero flick Green Lantern, Lively plays Carol Ferris, a businesswoman in the aircraft industy and on-again, off-again love interest of Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds), the man who will become Green Lantern. In the comics, Ferris turns into Star Sapphire, a supervillain that finds her way back to the side of good every so often, but it’s not yet known how much we’ll see of that transformation in the film. But Lively is revealing that her stunt work has involved an aerial rig created for The Matrix. “I think it goes about 20 feet high, but I like to say 50, so please spread that rumor because it makes me feel cooler,” she says, laughing. Check out a short clip below of Lively explaining some of what goes into her action scenes.
