Blake Lively is the talented young actress who’s best known for her role as Bridget in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series and as Serena van der Woodsen on the hit tv show, Gossip Girl. Learn all about the charmed life led by this affable, fresh-faced star!


Lucky Break

Even though Blake was raised in a family of entertainers, she wasn’t bit by the acting bug until her younger brother Eric convinced her to let his agent set her up with some auditions. At one of the auditions, she scored the Bridget role for Traveling Pants!


Queen Bee

Blake embodies effortless cool in her role as Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl and her real life high school experiences seems to mirror Serena’s It girl experience—Blake was the class president, a cheerleader and a nationally recognized choir singer.


Real-Life Romance

Serena’s on-screen romance with Dan may have ended, but in real life, Blake is still dating her Gossip Girl co-star, Penn Badgley. The two are old classmates who rekindled their friendship on the set of Gossip Girl and have since begun a jetset romance, traveling everywhere from Mexico to Thailand together.


Fun Facts

  • Blake earned a Breakthrough Performance nomination at the 2005 Teen Choice Awards for her role in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
  • She’s one of the youngest actresses to ever grace the cover of the esteemed fashion magazine, Vogue.
  • She had a Willy Wonka themed party for her eighteenth birthday that included invitations made to look like Golden tickets.

Blake Says

"At the end of the day, Brad Pitt[kwlink] poops, as handsome as he may be, and so does [kwlink 928]Angelina Jolie."

"I'm a shy person. There's nothing better than staying home and watching good movies. Some people want to go out and dance every night. I want to sit at home, cuddle, and bake cookies."

"I play in (Rock Band video game) tournaments in Brooklyn. I'll cover myself in sailor tattoos and dress like a rock star. Everyone else dresses totally normally and must think I'm a complete freak!"
