Childhood: Blake Lively was born in Tarzana, Los Angeles, California, Elaine and Ernie Lively. Both of her parents and her three siblings have been part of the entertainment industry at some point in their lives, so Blake began acting at an early age.

She starred in the show until it finished in 2012. 2008 saw her return for the sequel to 'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants' which received favourable reviews. She then went on to appear in the film, 'New York, I Love You' the following year. The film was a sequel to the 2006 film 'Paris, je t'aime' and it was received favourably by critics. She then starred in one of her most critically acclaimed films of all time, as the title character of 'The Secret Lives of Pippa Lee'. In late 2009, Lively began work on Ben Affleck's 2010 movie, 'The Town'. The following year, she played the love interest of the main character in 'Green Lantern'. She then also appeared in the music video for The Lonely Island's song, 'I Just Had Sex'. Then, in 2012, Lively appeared in the film 'Savages'.

Image caption Blake Lively’s daughter had some interesting first words.

"She says 'shump' for 'jump,' 'shtand' for 'stand,' and if she wants to sit down, it's ’s**-t,’" Lively explained. "She said, 'Hey, come s**t with me!' She's like, 'Yay, s**t!’” But I'll take that any day over like, when we go to the park and we take off our socks, for some reason she doesn't have her 'sh' for 'socks,' she has a 'c' for ‘socks.”

Can you imagine Ashley Olsen and Rumer Willis playing the Upper East Side It-girls?

While we can't imagine anyone other than Blake Lively and Leighton Meester playing the roles of Serena and Blair on ‘Gossip Girl’, casting director David Rapport has revealed that the two actress’ weren't the studio’s first choice. Instead Rumer Willis and Ashley Olsen were the studio's top picks to play the Upper East Side queens.

Rumer Willis was almost cast in ‘Gossip Girl’.

"I think the network initially pitched us Ashley Olsen and Rumer Willis for Blair and Serena,” Rapport told Buzzfeed. "I love Rumer, she’s grown into quite an amazing actress and person, but that, to me, was based on protecting the investment of a television show where creatively, these lesser-known girls really captured the essence of the show and carried it for six years.”
