Career: Blake’s big break was playing Bridget in the 2005 film The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. Her role as Serena van der Woodsen in the TV series Gossip Girl brought her extra attention - and turned her into a fashion icon - and she won rave reviews for her performance in the film The Private Lives of Pippa Lee.
Relationships: In 2007, Blake started dating her Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley, but they split in September 2010. She then started seeing Ryan Reynolds. Just about a year after they started dating, Blake and Ryan got married on 9 September 2012.
FYI: Blake has said that she doesn’t feel that she can rely on her acting career and would like to start her own interior design company as a back-up.
