Blake Lively’s life has started to change recently. While we may know her as the notorious party girl, Serena VanderWoodsen on Gossip Girl, she has been taking on far different roles than her small screen persona. Lately she is becoming more of a serious actress on the big screen and even been quoted saying, “I’m on a very commercial show [Gossip Girl], so the last thing I want to do is a commercial movie. I wanna take risks, I don’t wanna play it safe.” She played a poor drug mule, single mom in the movie The Town and now she is starring in the crime thriller, Savages in theaters July 6th. Many critics say that she had a “break-out performance” playing the trashy druggy in The Town and we can’t wait to see what she brings to the screen in her newest movie Savages.
Not only has she been getting bigger and better roles in the acting world, but she has landed herself one of Hollywood’s leading hunks, Ryan Reynolds. He is a little older than she is and an in our opinion they may be moving a little fast… their relationship has been getting more serious as well. They just bought a house together in upper state New York and it looks like things are headed down the aisle. Unless they plan on pulling a “Brangelina.”
We always knew that Blake had it in her to be a serious actress and now we know that she is going to be a big star. With Gossip Girl wrapping up, she will have much more time to focus on her more serious acting career and making little toe-head babies with Ryan. We look forward to seeing where Blake’s career and love life will go… and we’ll definitely be watching.
