Name: Blake Lively
Born: 25 August 1987
Occupation: Actress, model.
Born and raised in Tarzana, a neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, Blake Lively’s parents and all of her siblings have been involved in the entertainment industry in some fashion. Lively’s first role was in a 1998 movie directed by her father, Ernie, called Sandman in which she played the part of Trixie, the tooth fairy.
Her bigger break came between her junior and senior years of high school when she went out on a few auditions and landed the part of Bridget, one of the four leading roles in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005). The film earned her a nomination for a Teen Choice Award. In 2006 she appeared in Accepted, a film that was largely a failure, although Lively’s performance met with praise. Additional films include Simon Says, Elvis and Anabelle, The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2, New York, I Love you, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, The Town, and Green Lantern. None of these films have been particularly successful.
Blake Lively is probably best known for the role of Serena van der Woodsen in the CW’s teen drama television series Gossip Girl (where she co-starred with Leighton Meester). The series premiered in 2007 and Lively is reportedly paid $60,000 for each episode.
Featured in TIME magazine’s 100 influential people for 2011 and one of AskMen’s most desirable women of 2011, People magazine recently named her among their Most Beautiful at Every Age.
Lively came out as a strong supporter of Barack Obama during the 2008 presidential election. She appeared in a commercial promoting Obama for the Youth Vote program of MoveOn.org that aired on CW, MTV and Comedy Central.
Although a successful actress, Lively is also developing her own interior decorating company, just in case the whole acting thing doesn’t work out.
We place Blake’s net worth at $4 million.
So how much is $4 million dollars really?
Lively has told how she and her mother regularly went to Disneyland twice a week for mother-daughter bonding time. At $154 per pair ($80/adult, $74/child under 10), she could use her $4 million to pay for 25,974 mother-daughter duos to spend a day at Disneyland.
