Blake Lively has revealed she had to use technology invented for the Matrix to film stunts for The Green Lantern, and that it took her "months" to learn how to use it.

The Gossip Girl beauty stars opposite Ryan Reynolds as the love interest of superhero The Green lantern in the comic book movie.

Blake revealed: "There weren't too many stunts for me in this movie but I did get to do a really amazing stunt that was on this 40 foot rig called The Matrix Rig - we had to train for months for it, so that was pretty cool."

The 23-year-old actress flew into London to attend the Elle Style Awards 2011, where she was presented with an award for Best Actress, but revealed she was disappointed not to be able to stay for London Fashion Week.

Blake said: "I'm working in New York, I go back to shoot Gossip Girl tomorrow. I'm hoping to come out for the Burberry show but I don't know if I can get off work."
