Blake Lively was born in the small California town of Tarzan. Her parents, Ernie and Elaine Lively were actors. However, Elaine was not able to realize herself in the acting field and became a talent search agent, while Ernie was actively involved in popular series, although he played mostly security guards and motel administrators.
In addition to baby Blake, her family raised four older children (two brothers and two sisters), who also, to one degree or another, connected their lives with the world of cinema.
According to Blake Lively herself, her older brother Eric (known for her starring role in “Butterfly Effect 2”) inspired her to appear on the set for the first time. It was with his filing that 11-year-old Blake began attending film castings and got her first role. Such was the tooth fairy from the film “Sand Man” (1998).
The first work in cinema was successful. After that, little Blake Lively became a regular at film studios, began to take lessons in stage acting, tried to learn from older family members. However, despite all the efforts of the girl, she had to wait for the next filming offer for seven years. But it was worth it – very soon in terms of creativity, she outgrew her brother and parents.
The film “Jeans-mascot”, released in 2005, became the first known work of the young actress. A good inspirational film about the adventures of four young girlfriends (starring Amber Tamblin, Alexis Bledel and America Ferrere), whose lives are changed by magic jeans, was hailed by both viewers and critics, so the actresses immediately signed a contract. which was published in 2007. She was talked about as one of the most promising actresses in the genre of youth cinema.
Blake decided to continue to develop this role and agreed to shoot in the youth comedy “We were accepted!” starring Justin Long. Then there was the role in the low-budget horror film “Simon Speaks”, which, fortunately for Blake, did not hit the big screens. But the melodrama “Elvis and Annabel” released in 2007 with her participation caused a real sensation.
“Gossip Girl” and new peaks
The story of the project, which literally turned Blake Lively’s life upside down, making her one of Hollywood’s most sought-after beauties, began rather banally. The creator of the series “Lonely Hearts” accidentally came across a book by Cecilia von Cigezar. The writer described the adventures of students of an elite school, which is closely monitored by a blogger under the nickname “Gossip Girl”.
The girl was inferior, as many believed, to the book heroine in beauty, but the talent with which she transformed into a spoiled “major”, more than covered all the shortcomings.
The TV series premiered in the fall of 2007 on the Canadian channel CTV, but just a couple of months later it began airing in the United States and Western Europe. By the beginning of the second season, the popularity of the epic had reached truly staggering proportions. “Gossip Girl” was one of the series with the largest audience, ahead of many well-known television tapes, including “Supernatural” and “The Big Bang Theory”. Along with the popularity of the picture grew the popularity of Blake Lively, who performed. In the three years since the premiere of “Gossip Girl”, she has been nominated for many prestigious awards and twice won the Teen Choice Awards.
In 2010, Blake Lively’s filmography later included the Oscar-nominated film The City of Thieves. She was amazed at how different the character of the crime thriller was from her usual heroines: arrogant bitches and restless laughter, and for the sake of interest, she decided to try it.
At the first casting, Blake had to play one of the scenes with Ben Affleck. She was to transform into Boston’s single mother, drug addict, and prostitute Christa. From the first words, the stage partner was impressed by her naturalistic Boston accent. What was Affleck’s surprise when he learned that Blake had lived in California all her life? And since he not only played the lead role but was also the director of the film, Blake was immediately approved. And although the film never won an Oscar, it still won the Blake National Board of Review Award, as well as the Washington Film Critics Association Award.
In 2011, the young actress starred in the films “Provincial” and “Extremely Dangerous”, and also played the lead female role in the Hollywood blockbuster “Green Lantern”, which turned out to be fateful for her. But not because the full action film, based on Marvel comics, was able to overshadow the image of the main character of “Gossip Girl”. However, everything in their relationship was not as simple as it might seem at first glance.
After a forced break from work, Blake returned from the “decree” and tripled her strength to start shooting new projects. So, in 2015, viewers saw her in the lead role in the fantasy melodrama “The Age of Adeline” – Blake with her inherent grace transformed into an immortal girl in search of a loved one.
In 2016, Blake Lively starred in the disaster film “Shoal”: even pregnancy did not prevent her from portraying a brave surfer trapped by a man-eating shark. Another interesting role of Blake Lively, which came in 2016, is Gina from the drama “I see only you”. She played a birth-blind woman who, by chance, gains sight and opens new, tragic pages of her family life.
In 2018, the detective comedy “Simple Request” starring Blake was released. This is a story about a blogger’s mother as Anna Kendrick, who is investigating her friend’s disappearance.
BLACK LIVEY’S PERSONAL LIFE
Until the age of 17, Blake Lively did not meet anyone. She had enough fans, but according to the girl herself, she was too shy to accept their courtship. The first big love in the life of the actress was her school friend Kelly Blatz. Their relationship lasted three years, from 2004 to 2007, after which the young men parted ways over circumstances they chose to keep secret.
According to the plot, his hero was not indifferent to the spectacular Serena; apparently, the actor transferred the attitude to beauty in real life. But three years later, when Blake Lively’s filmography began to grow rapidly, and Penn’s career came to a standstill, the young man felt humiliated and broke off his relationship with the rapidly growing actress.
After that, Blake has seen in the company of Ryan Gosling: the girl came with him to the premiere of his “Valentines”, they were seen several times in restaurants, but скоро Very soon Blake appeared before the cameras with a new suitor, whom the paparazzi knew and loved. It turned out that while working on the project, certain chemistry arose between them, forcing Ryan to forget about his fidelity to his wife, Scarlett Johansson.
They came together for the premiere of “Green Lantern” in March 2011. This gave fans of star life a breeding ground for discussion, but their relationship seemed to have stalled at the beginning of the journey: Blake had an affair with Leonardo DiCaprio, and Reynolds was seen in the company of Charlize Theron.
Therefore, the news that Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively were secretly married in Charleston, South Carolina in September 2012, sounded like thunder in the clear sky. It turned out that a couple of months earlier, they bought a cozy family nest worth $ 2 million in Westchester County, New York.
On the second wedding anniversary, Blake Lively gave her husband the good news that she was pregnant. Until the birth of her first child, the couple regularly attended world events, and Blake, who retained her beauty even during pregnancy, always delighted tabloid readers with her neatly chosen outfits.
Her fans found out about Blake Lively’s second pregnancy in the summer of 2016, and at the end of September Blake and Ryan’s second daughter, Ines, was born. And a daughter was born again.
Blake Lively NOW
In 2020, fans saw Blake in the action movie “Rhythm Section”, which also appeared in Jude Law. Recently, however, the actress rarely appears on the big screens – she gives herself to the family: her beloved husband and three children.
