Lively appears on the cover of May 2015 issue of Allure. She talks about her new life as a working mother and balancing the different aspects of her life.

Most of the things I do are all-consuming, but somehow I find a way to do it all. But it’s dangerous to dilute that to a catchphrase.

Announces pregnancy


blake livelyLively announces she is expecting her first child with Reynolds. Lively posts a picture of her baby bump on her website Preserve as a part of the campaign “Preserve Celebrations: Falling for Family”. Lively:

With family on our mind, we looked to the origin of it all—to the women in our lives who are right there, at that special moment; at the creation of family. Today we celebrate them. With food to fill their tummies (as if that needs more filling), presents to soothe their tired (and swollen) soles, toys to warm their baby’s souls, projects to provoke them, and decorations to inspire creativity and merriment in all.

I went straight from high school to Gossip Girl, and both were very structured, scheduled environments, so I never had freedom to explore and carve my own path. When I finished my show, I wanted to take a break from acting and try what I would have tried if I hadn’t acted, and that was this.

Blake Lively interview


Elle Magazine interviews Lively about taking a year beak from her acting career.

Having a personal life has been really nice. I’d been on Gossip Girl 10 months a year for six years, shooting 15-hour days, so I hadn’t had time to just be since I graduated from high school. It’s been nice to kind of settle into my own skin and work on things I really love.

I don’t drink. I’ve never tried a drug. The music is so loud, you can’t have a conversation with somebody. If I were an amazing dancer, yeah, I’d go, but I’m definitely not. My friend calls me a speed walker because my elbows are everywhere. It’s not like I decided on these strict lifestyle choices and I’m enforcing them. It’s just something that I genuinely don’t have a desire for.

When Ryan first saw her, his face broke into a huge smile that crinkled his eyes. They just stared at each other with absolute love. Their faces were lit up with the candlelight, and it looked like something out of a romance movie.

Blake Lively interview


Seacrest interviews Lively during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and about her secret to happiness.

I’ve never been happier in my life, because happiness is a choice. You have to wake up every day and say, ‘There’s no reason today can’t be the best day of my life.

Blake Lively interview


Seacrest interviews Lively during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her style.

There’s a lot of pressure to constantly find the best designer outfits. As a teenager, my mom was constantly after me to dress better. She encouraged me to dress up and discover my own style. I love fashion and shopping though, just like any girl.

It didn’t seem like anything was off at all and no one said anything.

On keeping her relationships private:

I don’t comment on my relationships. . . . My anonymity is something I treasure. Wanting to be an actor and wanting to be famous are different.

Lively appears on the cover of the October 2010 issue of Allure magazine. She talks about the film The Town and food.

This part was originally supposed to be for a 37-year-old woman—she’s a mother—but when I read the script, I knew I had to have the part.

Interview magazine


Affleck interviews Lively for the August edition, discussing her Gossip Girl role and The Town. Affleck:

We met when you came to do The Town, and when you turned up, I was a little taken aback. I was like, “How did you learn this Boston accent? How did you learn all of this stuff?


I think it comes from the fact that I never really thought about acting as a child. It wasn’t like, “This is the career that I want to pursue.” So when I first started acting, I was more concerned with just being on a set and all of the woes of that, and I didn’t really know it or understand it as a craft yet. When I saw my first movie, I was fine, but I thought, “Oh, my heavens. It’s not about just standing there on my mark and saying these lines. I need to actually act.”

Esquire interview

Lively speaks about a love scene she had in the movie The Town:

I have a sex scene in this film, and that’s never comfortable, she says as the knife blade bangs the plate she’s using as a cutting board.  You think, Oh, that’s going to be so awkward. But this scene isn’t supposed to be a steamy one — it’s sort of tragic, because this girl is so desperately trying to keep this man interested. It’s more intimate than most sex scenes. I’m pretty much crying in it.

When we got back together, it was like no time had passed. We stayed together in two connecting suites, talked and sang Disney songs all night.
