Blake Lively was a true newcomer when she landed the role of Bridget in the film adaptation of ‘The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.’ It was her first acting gig, other than playing the tooth fairy in one of her father’s films. After capturing the interest of teen viewers everywhere, Lively landed her breakthrough role – that of Upper East Side rich girl Serena van der Woodsen on the steamy teen drama series ‘Gossip Girl.’ Her character’s frenemy relationship with fellow socialite Blair Waldorf and romantic escapades with several different male characters garnered much attention and made the show a hit. At this point, she had earned enough fame to make her way to the big screen in films such as ‘The Town’ and the superhero flick ‘Green Lantern.’ The long-legged blonde has been romantically linked to Penn Badgley and Leonardo DiCaprio, but she married her ‘Green Lantern’ costar Ryan Reynolds in 2012.
