Say hello to the first member of the class of 2013: Blake Lively, from TV’s Gossip Girl program. There she is on the right, looking studious.
Lively mentioned in a recent interview to W magazine that she’d like to take classes here, at “Yale”, one day a week. Apparently, “the possibility of attending Columbia University one day a week was a motivating factor behind accepting the role on the show, which is shot in New York.”
And just in case you cynics are about to write Lively off as another mindless celebrity — an anti-Franco, if you will — there’s this Revealing Insight in the following paragraph: “I probably have, like, 60 gorgeous bags. I have a closet with my really sharp, fancy, nice ones — the ones that go with my Valentino pumps, for example. And then I have a closet with the ones that are a little more rugged-feeling, the kind that go with my Belstaff motorcycle boots.”
Have fun in Lively’s LitHum class, Thirteens!
