Blake Lively has spoken about the time she enjoyed a night out with the Spice Girls. The Gossip Girl actress has revealed to Marie Claire magazine that she’s the group’s biggest fan. Who knew?!
Blake was in London when she discovered that Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell, Melanie B and Melanie C were dining in the same restaurant as her. She said: ”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.”
We had no idea she was such a hardcore fan. And we mean hardcore…
She added: “When I was a child I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with the Spice Girls. I had the Buffalo shoes, a custom-made Baby Spice necklace – when I say custom-made it was made out of plastic from the local mall – and a Union Jack dress.”
