Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds reportedly met on the set of Green Lantern, as both co-starred in the superhero film. However, it wasn’t love at first sight given that both were still in a serious relationship with other people at that time. Nonetheless, Reynolds and Lively eventually separated with their respective partners for different reasons. Eventually, the couple started seeing each other and had their secret wedding in 2012. 

Now, let’s learn more about Blake Lively.

Blake Lively was born August 25, 1987, in Los Angeles, California. Given that her parents were working in the entertainment industry, Lively was already immersed in acting. Her father was an actor and director. On the other hand, her mother worked as a talent scout. 

At only 10 years old, Lively made her big screen debut in the film Sandman, which was directed by her father. She studied at Burbank High School. During her high school years, she was reportedly an ace student who served as class president, made the cheerleading squad, participated in choir, and was a member of different clubs. 

Blake Lively’s solid high school record could be attributed to her desire to study at Stanford University. However with the help of Blake’s brother Eric, she was able to land a huge role in the eventual hit film The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. The film would go on to gross $42 million worldwide. She eventually reprised the role of Bridget in the second installment in 2008. 

After a memorable role in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Lively continued to string together memorable performances including her notable portrayal of Monica Moreland in Accepted. Other movie appearances include Simon Says, Elvis and Annabelle, New York, I Love You, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, The Town, Green Lantern, and many more. 

Perhaps Blake Lively’s most popular role came in 2007. Although she initially wanted to turn the role down to pursue college, she was eventually convinced to star in the hit TV series Gossip Girl. Portraying Serena van der Woodsen, she received various distinctions. She won three Teen Choice Awards for Choice TV Actress Drama twice and Choice Breakout Star: Female. 

While Gossip Girl was a huge success, Lively didn’t stop there. She continued to take on starring roles for films such as A Simple Favor, The Rhythm Section, The Shallows, and The Age of Adaline. Her performance in The Shallows earned her a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress. 

Blake Lively’s last movie role was in The Rhythm Section. Since then, the Gossip Girl star has yet to make another appearance on the big screens. However, she is penciled to star once again in future movies The Making Of, Proxy, and The Husband’s Secret.
