WWW.ENTERTAINMENTWISE.COM – Florence Welch has been talking about her close friendship with US actress (and Ryan Reynolds’ new wife) Blake Lively, calling the Gossip Girl star her “partner in crime.”
The two girls struck up a friendship after the Florence + the Machine singer performed onGossip Girl a couple of years ago, and since then the pair have enjoyed lots of nights out.
Florence revealed Blake, who’s fame has only been increased with her recent marriage to Ryan, has even helped her get through high-profile celebrity events such as the annual Met Ball in New York City. “She’s been a really big support when I’m in that big, crazy Met Ball scene – having Blake there to be a partner in crime has been really lovely,” Florence told ESmagazine.
“She’s got such a big heart. She’s far more in the public eye than I am, and she’s a good, grounded wise person for me to get advice from.”
Like any normal girls, the two stars apparently bonded over pizza!
“I performed on Gossip Girl a couple of years ago, and she’s always been a fan. She came to my very first show in New York. She was so sweet, she even brought everyone pizza at the after-show, and we’ve been friends ever since,”
“We both love music, and she’s a good influence. She’s very savvy, and a good American girl – she helps me with my more cynical British side.”
Despite their shared love of junk food and music there is one thing that sets the two apart- alcohol:
“[Is she a party girl?] No that’s the thing, she can party, but she doesn’t drink,”
“So she’ll go till four in the morning but she can make sure I’m in a taxi. That’s a good friend!”
Flo and Blake are such good mates that the Brit singer reportedly sang for Blake at her nuptials in September…
