Blake Lively: 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'.

Blake Lively: 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'.

Blake Lively: 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.
