Although Gossip Girl ended in 2012, Blake Lively has finally revealed how she really feels about being on the hit CW show. Basically, she’s glad those days are over! The actress says she didn’t like the message she was putting out as Serena Van der Woodsen.

“People loved it, but it always felt a little personally compromising — you want to be putting a better message out there. But it’s a weird thing when people feel like they know you really well, and they don’t,” she told Allure magazine.

“I would not be proud to be the person who gave someone [illegal substances] and then shot someone and [dated] someone else’s boyfriend.”

We can understand why she wouldn’t want people to confuse her with her character, but we’re so happy that she took the role. Can you imagine anyone else playing Serena?!

Do you think that Blake’s character was a bad role model? D
