Blake Lively On Performing Her Stunts In ‘Green Lantern’

Back in January, “Gossip Girl” star Blake Lively signed on to appear as Carol Ferris opposite Ryan Reynolds in director Martin Campbell’s highly anticipated “Green Lantern” adaptation.

And while it’s currently unknown if Ferris will transform into her villainous alter-ego Star Sapphire during the movie, Lively has recently revealed that she participated in some of the wire stunts for the film.

“Our director likes it real — the fights close and dirty,” said Lively during an interview with Vogue. Lively also explained that the aerial stunts were filmed in a rig originally created for “The Matrix.”

“I’m 40 feet in the air, spiraling around,” continued Lively. “That’s the best workout you can ever do because it’s all core. You do that for ten minutes and you should see your body the next day! It’s so exhilarating, so thrilling — and nauseating.”

“All I want is to be a hero to my nephews and nieces,” added Lively. “I’m going to be the coolest aunt ever.”

While the stunt work implies that Lively will be directly involved in the action at some point during the story, she has previously indicated that she doesn’t want to wear the “pink bodysuit” of Star Sapphire.

Earlier this month, the studio released a photo of “Green Lantern” star Ryan Reynolds in a motion capture outfit, which will used a basis to create his entirely CGI costume.

“Green Lantern” will land in theaters in June 2011.
