We have all—or at least most of us have—succumbed to a late-night, ill-advised session of Googling ourselves. Why not? Let’s see what’s out there. It does not usually go too well, as a strange photo from summer camp or a blog post written in 2007 is likely to emerge, sending you on a spiral of shame and regret.
One would think if there was anyone who would be able to do this without coming across anything too upsetting or unexpected, though, it would be Blake Lively. “Oh, look, another picture of me in which I look like a glamorous Disney-princess-esque movie star!” But, alas, Lively says it’s not an endeavor that ends well for her, either. “I have before, and it’s just ended in full depression. So I think it’s a good rule of thumb not to Google yourself, because the Internet is not nice,” Lively says in a new video filmed for Variety.

Other Lively learnings!
— She enjoys doing the movements from The OA, though “[her version is] a bit more interpretive,” she explains.
— If she could play any Disney character, it would be . . . Minnie Mouse! (Though, ever self-deprecating, she says she’d be a “terrible” one.)
— Her daughter loves The Wizard of Oz, and Lively says she has had to watch the film probably “60 times a week.”
Blake Lively: lover of cult-favorite Netflix shows and Disney films alike; Internet skeptic and, at the same time, Instagram obsessive.
