Blake Lively stepped out in New York last night to attend a screening for Haywire, directed by Steven Soderbergh. As reported last week, Blake has been confirmed as the lead in Soderbergh’s next project, The Side Effects. So she’s being nice to her director, helping him pimp his latest work, so that he, and she too, are in good position for the next.

As if Blake Lively wouldn’t know how to ass-kiss.

So far no photos of Blake and Ryan Reynolds together in 2012 but they are still together, and she’s still visiting him in Boston as often as she can. Many of you wrote to ask post-Golden Globes why she wasn’t a presenter and whether or not that had anything to do with Leo. I don’t think it had anything to do with him so much as there really was no reason, no upcoming project and no current project, for her to be there to promote. And she could have been holding out for something...MORE.

Many celebrities are currently angling for invitations to present at the Big Show, the Oscars. And I’m told Blake’s people, naturally, have already been reaching out, assessing the possibility of Blake walking her very first carpet at the Kodak Theatre.

Are you ok?

Some of you just exploded in rage, I could feel it.

Consider that the Jessicas Alba and Biel were past presenters the Sci-Tech Oscars and the chances of Blake doing it one day aren’t so remote.
