Blake LivelyBLAKE Lively claims she doesn’t Google herself.

The Gossip Girl star thinks it’s “destructive” to read about herself online.

“No,” Lively told Britain’s Marie Claire magazine whether she types her name into the internet search engine. “Why? I mean, I’m with myself all of the time. Why would I want to see myself on the internet? I can look in the mirror. I think it’s destructive.”

Blake was then asked about her romance with Penn Badgley.

“At the end of the day,” she replied, “you’re just in any relationship. How does anybody go to work every day and come home? You just do it and it either works or it doesn’t.

“You know, I don’t have very many friends that are actors, the ones that I do have are people I’ve worked on films with for months. I don’t go around collecting people for my BlackBerry because I want to have phone friendships.”

Meanwhile, it has been claimed that Blake’s Gossip Girl costar Leighton Meester is jealous of her success.

“They don’t even acknowledge each other when they’re not in a scene together,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.

“Leighton thinks Blake is an egomaniac who views her time on the TV set as slumming it. And Blake feels stifled. She’s just ignoring her costar because she knows bigger things are in store.

“Blake’s way over Gossip Girl. She’s counting the days till she’s free to do movies full-time.”
