Lively ‘appreciates personal life’

Blake Lively has opened up about taking time out from her acting career.

Blake Lively found it “nice” to take time off from acting.

The former Gossip Girl actress hasn’t appeared on the big screen since 2012 film Savages.

And in a new interview with Elle Magazine, the 26-year-old revealed it was a conscious decision.

“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,” she explained. “It’s been nice to kind of settle into my own skin and work on things I really love.”

One thing Blake surely will have loved working on during her time off is her marriage to fellow actor Ryan Reynolds.

The couple married in September 2012 in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, after originally meeting on the set of their 2011 film Green Lantern.

At the time of their introduction, Ryan was still married to first wife Scarlett Johansson and Blake was dating actor Penn Badgley.

But once both couples split, Blake and Ryan were able to begin their relationship in October 2011.

Having starred in such a fashionable show for so many years, Blake has become a style icon.

And in the interview with Elle, she discussed how her style has evolved.

“The older I get, I guess I wear less sparkles. And I know that someday my knees are going to look like elephant knees. But for now, my hemlines are still pretty high,” she said.

Blake will next be seen as the face of Gucci’s new Premiere fragrance.

And next year she will return to the big screen in the film The Age of Adaline, where she plays the title character opposite Harrison Ford.
