Blake Lively

Blake Lively (born August 25, 1987) is an American actress and model who appears as Serena van der Woodsen in the television teen drama series Gossip Girl. She has also appeared in movies, including Accepted, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, The Town, Green Lantern, and Savages. Lively was born in Tarzana, Los Angeles, the daughter of actors Elaine Lively (née McAlpin) and Ernie Lively (born Ernest W. Brown). She was raised as a Southern Baptist. She is the youngest of five children: she has an older brother, Eric, two half-sisters, Lori and Robyn, and a half-brother, Jason.
