Blake Lively recently launched a new lifestyle website, called Preserve, but her unofficial mentor, Martha Stewart, isn't exactly sure why.

"Let her try," was all she said of the actress's new endeavor.

"I don't mean that facetiously!" she added, in an interview with the Huffington Post. "I mean, it's stupid, she could be an actress! Why would you want to be me if you could be an actress? I just did a movie yesterday, though -- I can't even tell you about it -- but I want to be Blake Lively."

Blake Lively Opens Up About Husband Ryan Reynolds

Stewart, 72, has a history with Lively, 26.

When Lively had trouble planning her 2012 nuptials to actor Ryan Reynolds, she famously called on her pal Stewart, who lived near her at the time, to help.

"They're very friendly, very nice people," Stewart said. "In a way, kind of shy -- not shy on the screen, at all, if you've seen any of Blake's movies -- but very shy in person. But she's a baker and a homemaker."
