"Gossip Girl" star Blake Lively would rather be alone than date someone just for the sake of having a boyfriend.
"People like to draw parallels between my life and the scandalous stories on 'Gossip Girl,'" Lively says in Marie Claire's July cover interview. " I dress the same as 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."
The 24-year-old blonde bombshell is currently in a relationship with actor Ryan Reynolds, 35, and in the past has dated Leonardo DiCaprio and her "Gossip Girl" co-star Penn Badgley, who is now seeing Zoe Kravitz.
