Blake Lively's Spice Girls dinner
Sep 6, 2012, 5:01 GMT
Blake Lively fulfilled her lifelong dream of hanging out with the Spice Girls.
The 'Gossip Girl' actress was in London when the girl group - Victoria Beckham, Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell - went out for dinner at the same restaurant as her and Blake couldn't resist joining them.
She told Britain's Marie Claire magazine: 'I was in London and I stayed in my hotel most of the time because it was raining. But on the last night I went out for dinner. After I'd arrived, I was told a bunch of paparazzi had showed up. I thought, 'that's so weird. I've been left alone most of my stay - why are they bothering me now?' But then someone told me it was because Victoria Beckham was in the same restaurant.
'I was like, OK, that makes sense. She's a friend of mine and I would have said hello but I decided I didn't want to bother her. Until that person then told me that she was there with I was like, I need to say hello! So, there you have it; I got to hang out with the Spice Girls. It was my lifelong dream. That's it now. I can quit.'
Blake was so obsessed with the Spice Girls when she was younger that she even had her own version of Geri's famous Union Jack dress.
She said: 'When I was a child I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with the Spice Girls. I had the Buffalo shoes, a custom made Baby Spice necklace -when I say custom made it was made out of plastic from the local mall - and a Union Jack dress.'
