Who Is Blake Lively?
Blake Lively is an American actress whose popularity went through the roof in the mid 2000s when she landed a role in the cult classic The Sisterhood of Travelling Pants. This movie was made for the ladies so, among girls this movie became a really big deal. After two years of this, her first major role came in CW’s hit teen drama titled “Gossip Girls.”
Blake has also starred in films such as The Age of Adaline, The Shallows and even A Simple Favor. Right now, Gossip Girl has ended and Blake hasn’t been seen doing much lately. But she is famous for marrying Ryan now!
Relationship with Ryan
Ryan and Blake started dating in the year 2011 and quickly, they became quite a couple. After just one year, they bought a home together in New York. The hid this relationship from the media for a while and even got married in a private ceremony in South Carolina. Only 70 guests were invited in the marriage held at Boone Hall Planation.
The marriage had celebrity guests too. Singer Florence Welch who is the friend of Blake actually performed in the wedding. Before her marriage to Ryan, Blake was actually linked to Leonardo DiCaprio before she married Ryan.
Soon after the wedding, the pair welcomed their first child together. They named the girl James! What were they thinking, right? They also had a second daughter in 2016 and her name is Ines. This time they got the name right!
Three after that, Blake told the press that she was expecting a third child when she was in the Red Carpet in one of Ryan’s movies. She did give birth that summer but the news was not reported till October because it was quite private again!
Blake Lively was born on the 25th of August in LA, California. She was born to a family related to Hollywood. Her father was actually an Actor as well as a Director while her mother Elaine used to be a Talent Scout. Lively is the youngest girl in their family. She has four older siblings and all of them are actors too.
Before moving to LA to pursue their show business careers, Lively’s parents actually lived in Georgia and they always had a Southern Influence. She has admitted to have a tight knit southern family. She also added that whenever she told people that she is from LA, people did not really believe her because of her way of life. It is very southern!
Anyway, Blake started school when she was just 3 years old. She was tall for her age so, she actually went straight to the first grade with her older brother because he was scared of going to school alone. This was a funny incident as Blake recalls. She said in an interview that the school put her in mentally disabled classes because they thought that she was stupid. But of course she was not!
She later graduated from Burbank High School and had impressive school record in both academics and ECA. She also had really good grades in her AP Course. In addition, Lively was a cheerleader and the president of the School Choir.
Blake actually did not want to act. She had pressure from her siblings to quit school and start acting but her dream was to attend Stanford. Her siblings though knew she had it in her to be a great actress so her brother Eric really made her audition for different roles. At only the age of 15, he was trying to push Blake. She even got many Agent Appointments but had to pass on them simply because she did not want to be a child star. But at the age of 17, she finally decided to give acting a go and ended up acting in the movie titled “The Sisterhood of Travelling Pants.” After this movie, she did Gossip Girl in 2008 all the way through to 2012. She also had different movies under her belt. The movies included stuff like The Town, Green Lantern (with Ryan), The Age of Adaline and more.
In addition to being an actress, she is also a homemaker and an advocate for change! She supports different charities and usually donates to different kinds of foundations that help people.
