Actor Blake Lively, 24, says that whenever she gets self-conscious at showbiz events, she tries to reflect the confidence of the legendary Marilyn Monroe to survive the ordeal.

“I have insecurities like any girl. I used to be really shy and unconfident. I hated being tall. Walking the red carpet is scary, so I pretend to be Marilyn Monroe - someone who owned their sexuality and projected this incredible aura of self-confidence,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted her as saying.

Lively prefers to stay at home rather than attending parties, and says she feels sexiest when she cooks. “I really like to cook. It makes me feel sexy. I think there’s something so sensual about it — the smells, the touches, the flavours, the experience of creating something. And, when you are doing it with someone you love, creating that together... I think it’s really attractive,” she said.
