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. As they did not want to leave her with a babysitter, Blake's parents taught her at acting classes they worked at. Blake's first acting role came in 1998, in the film 'Sandman'. The film was directed by her father. In 2005, her brother, Eric, asked his agent to set her up with an audition, which led to her casting in the film 'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants'.

Career: In 2006, Lively co-starred in the film, 'Accepted' before having a minor role in the horror film, 'Simon Says'. The following year, she played the role of Annabelle in 'Elvis and Annabelle', which has been cited as her breakthrough role. In late 2007, she was cast in The CW television series, 'Gossip Girl'. 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'.

Personal Life: After meeting on the set of 'Green Lantern' in 2010, Lively began dating Ryan Reynolds in 2011, following his divorce from Scarlett Johansson the previous year. The couple bought a house together in New York, in June 2012, before getting married in September that year.

Blake Lively: "Woody Allen Writes The Best Roles For Women"


Blake Lively Woody Allen

Blake Lively couldn't believe her luck when she landed a role in Woody Allen’s lastest film Cafe Society. The actress has a small part in the comedy/drama, but says she would have taken any role to work with Allen, because the writer and director “really, really writes to women”.

“I didn't care if it was one line, one scene, or playing a janitor,” she told The Independent. “He's one of the few filmmakers who really, really writes to women. They're fully realised women; they're not one thing or the other."

The Shallows Review

Very Good

With a simple premise and plenty of visual style, Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown) takes the audience on a terrifying odyssey involving a lone woman and a menacing shark. What emerges is a gruelling one-woman show, as Blake Lively throws herself into a ferocious cat and mouse game that's relentlessly suspenseful.

She plays Nancy, a young medical school drop-out on a pilgrimage to a mythical beach her mother told her about before dying of cancer. So she has very personal reasons to visit it. And with the help of nice-guy guide Carlos (Oscar Jaenada), she finds it on a remote stretch of Mexico's coastline. After video chatting with her father and sister (Brett Cullen and Sedona Legge), she paddles out to join a couple of local surfers. Then when she decides to stay for one last wave on her own, the great white pounces. Injured and alone, she takes refuge on a tiny rock that will disappear when the tide rises. And in order to survive, she'll have to get creative.

Shot in Australia, the film is carefully assembled to ratchet up the intensity right from the start. Collet-Serra gleefully stirs in plenty of creepy Jaws-like insinuation, hinting at what's coming long before he reveals the enormous single-minded shark. The combination of digital effects and rubbery models never quite looks real, but the film is so sharply well-made that we never mind. And besides, Lively does a great job at convincing us that she's in proper peril. This is a full-bodied performance, so grounded and authentic that Lively is able to take the audience through the ordeal right with Nancy. Her experience in the water is bolstered through visions and flashbacks that add a surprising emotions. And her banter with Carlos offers some insight into her feisty personality.
