Blake Lively has been busy! She tells she’s pulling a Florence Nightingale for her boyfriend and Gossip Girl co-star, Penn Badgley, who has just had a wisdom tooth removed. “He’s a strong man — he’s doing well,” she laughed at the 2009 Angel Ball supporting Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation in NYC Tuesday night.

One bad tooth can’t spoil Penn’s good looks, as even Blake has to admit her man was quite dapper on the cover of Men’s Health recently.

“He always looks extremely handsome,” gushed Blake. “Always!

Blake was proud to support the event, which raised nearly $4 million, as cancer has hit her family close to home.

“Cancer research in general is so important. My grandfather had cancer,” she explained. “Also, I’m very close with [jewelry designer] Lorraine Schwartz and this is close to her for personal reasons. So, I wanted to be out here to support her tonight. She got me off work, so I’m very excited!”
