Mini Bio (1)
Blake Lively was born in a showbiz family in California and quickly followed her parents' and siblings' steps. Her first role was "Trixie, the Tooth Fairy" in the 1998 movie Sandman (1998), directed by her dad, Ernie Lively. Her big break came along a few years later, though. Blake was up to finish high school when she got the co-starring role of "Bridget" in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005) in 2005.
Blake was so perfect for the part of "Bridget" that, with no big references or even auditioning, she landed the part. According to her, all she did was walk in and leave a photo of herself. It was clear that she was the "Bridget" needed.
After "The Sisterhood", Blake went back to high school for her senior year to have the life of a regular teenager -- or a very busy regular teenager. The multi-talented girl was class president, a cheerleader, and performed with the choir.
Blake also starred in Accepted (2006) with Justin Long, and has another project titled Elvis and Anabelle (2007).

Personal Quotes (22)
... I just did it on my own. I've never worked with an acting coach, but my parents had acting classes and I grew up around them my whole life just because I didn't have a babysitter. I'm actually a very shy person-that's a big secret, so don't tell-but being in those classes pushed me to break out of that a little bit. It's like nature versus nurture: I'm naturally very shy, but I was brought up in a way where I had to get up and get out of that.
I started thinking about the state of young people these days. In my character's situation, her mom is off with nine different husbands and her dad left her when she was a kid. She has nobody to learn from, so she's making her own mistakes. Dad takes a hike and now she's hiking up her dress for two guys. You don't think there's a parallel there? These kids are very much the product of this cynical generation.
