Just like her scandalous character in the television show Gossip Girl, it seems that everyone is talking about Blake Lively. This California born, blonde bombshell recently had a supporting role in The Private Lives of Pippa Lee and has two new films on the horizon.

Blake was born in 1987 in Tarzana California to a Hollywood family. Her father is an actor and a director, her mother works as a talent manager and her older siblings are all professional actors so it’s no wonder Blake was bitten by the acting bug at a young age. She began her acting career in 1998 as Trixie the Toothfairy in the film Sandman, which was directed by her father. However, her breakout role was as Bridget in 2005′s The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, based on the bestselling book series of the same name. Starring alongside America Ferrera, Amber Tamblyn and Alexis Bledel, her performance earned her a wide fan base and a Teen Choice Award nomination.

After the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants was released, Blake decided to take a break from acting and finish high school. And she kept herself very busy indeed, managing to juggle cheerleading, show choir and her duties as class president. Her next role was as Justin Long’s love interest in the 2006 teen film Accepted and her most recent film resume includes the Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2 and supporting roles in New York I Love You and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee.

In 2007, Blake landed the role of notorious socialite Serena van der Woodsen, in the television series Gossip Girl. Her onscreen love interest became a real life romance when she began dating co-star and childhood friend Penn Badgely. Later this year, she will appear in Our Town, a crime thriller adapted and directed by Ben Affleck. The star studded cast also includes Jeremy Renner and Jon Hamm. As if that weren’t high profile enough, she is currently filming The Green Lantern, a hotly anticipated superhero action film with Ryan Reynolds where she stars as the villainess, Star Sapphire.
