Blake Lively didn't take much away from her etiquette classes.
The Age of Adaline actress appeared on NBC's Late Night Thursday, where she explained why she had been working on her manners. "I thought it was time. I mean, I just laid upon your desk when I arrived, so you can tell that I don't really have my act together," she told Seth Meyers. "But I'm working on it!"
Why did Lively decide to modify her behavior? "I went to dinner once [at The Ritz in Paris] with Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld, which is just like...I'm sitting there like, 'Who invited me here?' I'm ordering the scones with the bacon and the cheese and the butter, getting it on my elbows and my clothes," she said. "I didn't know what fork [to use]. I was Jack Dawson in Titanic and I just wanted to pass someone a note by a clock because I did not belong there, and go down to the Irish people and spin. There were no Irish people around. It was really mortifying, so I thought, 'I can't have this experience again.'"
The lessons didn't take.
"I eat pretty poorly and my husband [Ryan Reynolds] says the reason that I don't gain as much as weight as I should is because only 10 percent makes it into my mouth. It's really...I don't even know where the food goes!" Lively, 27, explained. "It's like I'm in a food fight with myself at every moment."
