"This movie was terrifying in so many ways — it’s so graphic, it’s so violent — and my character experiences such an arc,” she told Celebuzz.com at the Savages press conference in L.A. ”It’s challenging as an actor and it’s also challenging as a person, you know?”
In the flick, Blake plays "a modern girl" with two boyfriends (Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson) who grow pot. She gets kidnapped by a Mexican drug cartel, and the men — who are okay with each other, as their shared relationship is of the polyamorous kind — team up to find her.
"The love is so untraditional," she said. "These are three people who don’t have a family, who are creating a family within each other. That’s what I was really drawn to in this story is all of the love — the love between my character and the boys."
