London: Actress Blake Lively says that she isn`t like her `Gossip Girl` character Serena van der Woodsen.

"I wear pretty clothes and live in New York so people think I`m very similar to her; they see her talk and interact in their homes once a week and they probably assume that is who I am, but it`s not me," a website quoted Lively as saying.

However, the 23-year-old, who plays rich society girl Serena van der Woodsen in the US drama series, is more of a family-oriented girl.

"I was raised in a very rounded family from the South and was never much of a party girl, and if I were I would think of the obligations that I have to young girls, because I feel there are not too many great role models, although some are now emerging," she added.
