Blake Lively inspired by Marilyn Monroe

Blake Lively pretends to be Marilyn Monroe on the red carpet.
The 'Gossip Girl' star gets self-conscious at showbiz events and tries to channel the confidence of the Hollywood sex siren to survive the ordeal.
She said: 'I have insecurities like any girl. I used to be really shy and unconfident. I hated being tall. Walking the red carpet is scary, so I pretend to be Marilyn Monroe - someone who owned their sexuality and projected this incredible aura of self-confidence.'
Down-to-earth Blake, 24, prefers staying at home to attending parties and says she feels sexiest when she is cooking.
She said: 'I really like to cook. Cooking makes me feel sexy. I think there's something so sensual about it - the smells, the touches, the flavours, the experience of creating something. And, you know, when you're doing it with someone you love, creating that together. I think it's really attractive.
'I do a little of everything but Italian food is my favourite. And chocolate! Whenever I travel I go to cooking schools. I eat too much that's the problem.'
