From making history as Serena van der Woodsen on The CW’s “Gossip Girl” to building mystery in “A Simple Favor,” Blake Lively has been acting for over a decade.
She once went on a double date with her now-husband, and he wasn’t her date.
When she and her husband Ryan Reynolds met on the set of the 2011 film “Green Lantern,” the two were both in separate relationships — Lively with “Gossip Girl” costar Penn Badgley and Reynolds with then-wife Scarlett Johansson.
After both relationships ended, Lively told Vanity Fair that the two longtime friends decided to go on a double date together, but with other people. Those relationships didn’t work out and Lively suggested that she and Reynolds try dating instead.
