Blake Lively Biography
Blake Lively was born in August of 1987 in the Tarzana Valley area of Los Angeles. Both of her parents are in the entertainment industry and were conducting acting classes. They didn’t want to leave young Lively with a babysitter, so they took her along. This enabled Lively to learn acting and all the tricks of the trade. Her mother wanted to be sure that she had a close relationship with her daughter, so they frequently spent time together at Disneyland. Lively has stated that sometimes she feels as if she grew up in Disneyland and not Los Angeles.
Although she wasn’t really interested in acting at first, she went to some auditions while in high school. This was when Lively won the role of Bridget for the movie The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. She filmed her scenes for this movie between her junior and senior year at Burbank High School in 2005. This role earned her a nomination for a Teen Choice Award for Choice Movie Breakout-Female.
She returned to high school and was soon cast in the CW series Gossip Girl, which premiered in September of 2007. She also reprised her role in the sequel The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. She was on the cover of Cosmo Girl in November of 2007 and featured in TIME magazine’s list of 100 Influential People. Lively has since gone on to do numerous other movies including The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, The Town, Green Lantern, Accepted, and Savages. Lively married fellow actor Ryan Reynolds in September of 2012 in a lavish South Carolina ceremony and purchased a home in the Bedford area.
Lively also signed a lucrative contract with Gucci in 2012, earning her another $4 million as well as the face of L’Oréal in October of 2013. She earns $50,000 for a single appearance at a store opening and earns an additional $60,000 for each episode of Gossip Girls. Lively loves cooking and was featured on The Martha Stewart Show, baking cake alongside the cooking icon in 2008. Lively has a current net worth of $16 million.
