Blake Lively has been XO'ing with the Gossip Girl cast since most of the show's viewers were gossiping in high school gym class, but the California girl is growing into her own.
With a role in the summer smash hit, Savages, Blake's presence has been magnified, but there is one thing that still gets the beautiful blonde weak in her knees: the Spice Girls!
Blake is the cover girl of the October issue of Marie Claire UK, so it is only right that she reveal her obsession for the UK queens.
Check out some excerpts from her interview to learn a little more about the starlet's spicy addiction:
On being a fan of the Spice Girls:
“When I was a child I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with the Spice Girls. I had the Buffalo shoes, a customised Baby Spice necklace –when I say custom made it was made out of plastic from the local mall – and a union jack dress.”
On fulfilling her dream of meeting the Spice Girls:
“Recently, 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.”
