Biography

At the age of 17, Blake Lively stepped into a shared pair of blue jeans and, along with co-stars America Ferrera, Alexis Bledel and Amber Tamblyn, became a rising star with the teen set after starring in her first major film, "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" (2005). Perhaps it was fate that the blonde, California-bred actress who grew up on a variety of film sets would one day join the family business. Lively made her acting debut at age 10 with a bit part in the film "Sandman" (1998), directed by her father, but she put aside her acting ambitions to focus on academics, only to return years later for her breakout role in "Sisterhood." She began climbing the A-list ladder with a small part in the college comedy "Accepted" (2006) and one of the title roles in "Elvis and Annabelle" (2007). Primed for stardom, Lively reached new heights after landing the leading role of the fashionable Serena van der Woodsen on the popular teen drama, "Gossip Girl" (The CW, 2007- ). With fame came tabloid gossip, most of it centered on her off-set relationship with co-star and childhood friend, Penn Badgley and her secret 2012 wedding to Ryan Reynolds. Because of the show's collective hold on the public's imagination, Lively found herself on the covers of countless magazines while she continued to land roles in major films like "The Town" (2010) and "Green Lantern" (2011), all of which proved that the talented actress was ready to reach a new level of stardom.

Bonus Trivia

.

In February 2012, a judge granted Lively a restraining order against Sergei Mifle, a male fan who lurked around the NYC set of "Gossip Girl." According to TMZ.com, Mifle allegedly made repeated contact with Lively's mom, told her he was "deeply concerned" about her daughter, and claimed he needed to help the actress because she was troubled.
