Blake Lively's latest onscreen role was challenging in more ways than one. In All I See Is You , the actress portrays a blind woman named Gina, whose life changes completely after she regains her sight through a phenomenal surgery. Lively apparently almost didn't get to read the script, since her team assumed she wouldn't want to film the nude scenes and director Marc Forster seemed unwilling to remove them, VF reports. But she was openminded about the role.
