As if having a household name, being able to claim Ryan Reynolds as her baby daddy and maintaining a lifelong membership to The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants wasn’t enough on her list of accomplishments, Blake Lively has set her sights on yet another triumph: attending Harvard. As Legally Blonde as this may sound, Blake is 100% serious about this new endeavor. She is not giving any clues as to when she will begin the process, but in a recent interview she informed the world that Harvard Business School is on her definite to-do list.
“I have a dream to go to Harvard Business School and one of these days I will do that… in my spare time,”
Um, ok. I’m sure she can fit in a few classes all while spending hours on set, toting James around town for baby yoga classes, and starring in commercials for less-than-ideal hair products. I’m not sure whether to respect or despise her ridiculously inflated confidence once it comes to this issue. Saying “Yeah, I’ll go to Harvard one day” is comparable to me informing the world that I will be president someday…in my spare time. I mean, it’s definitely possible, but bragging about it like it’s no big deal is not a way to make friends.
Well, Blake, we applaud your aspirations and hope the best for you. As long as you maintain your exceptional taste in clothing and rockin’ bod, we’re behind you 100%. Also, if you’re going to leave Hollywood to pursue your dreams of being a boss lady and running the business world, I would like to be considered to join your team. My résumé is attached.
