When a batch of nude iPhone photos of someone who looks a whole lot like Blake Lively popped up last week, her reps were quick to issue a statement to let the media know that Blake has never taken nude photos and that the ones released are fake.
After a second batch of nude iPhone photos of someone who looks even more like Blake Lively showed up, some people thought that Queen Serena might not show up for the MTV Movie Awards, despite her upcoming film “Green Lantern.” She wasn’t going to let it get her down, though, and soon we heard that she’d not only show up for the awards, but she’d poke fun at the scandal herself.
She did show up, but she wasn’t the one doing the joking. When host Jason Sudeikis introduced her, he said that Ryan Reynolds would be joined onstage by “Someone that we believe is the real Blake Lively though she won’t confirm it.”
Even Reese Witherspoon, the sweetest thing since Sandra Bullock, took a light-hearted poke at Blake. She bestowed some wisdom on the youngsters in the audience: “If you take naked pictures of yourself with your cell phone, you hide your face!” she said. “It’s possible to be a good girl. I’m going to try to make it cool.”
As for Lively herself… she stayed mum. While she did venture backstage to the press room to take photos, she refused to answer any reporters’ questions.
