Blake Lively’s Net Worth
Music Award According to CBS News, she made $60,000 per episode for her role as Serena Van Der Woodsen on “Gossip Girl” and has an estimated net worth of $16 million.
“We were buddies then,” Ryan told Entertainment Weekly’s SiriusXM show. “I remember it was funny because for about a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and we were both single. We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy and I was on a date with another girl.”
“That was the most awkward date because we were just like fireworks coming across,” Reynolds continued. “It was weird at first but we were buddies for a long time. I think it’s the best way to have a relationship is to start as friends.”
What is Blake Lively’s real name?
She was born Blake Ellender Brown but chose to take her mother’s maiden surname when she entered the entertainment business.
“Actually, my grandma’s brother’s name was Blake, and my sister wrote it down when she was reading a family tree,” Lively shared in a 2006 interview with Radio Free Entertainment.
“And they said, ‘If it’s a boy, we’ll name him Blake, and if it’s a girl, we’ll name her Blakely.’ And everybody thought I was going to be a boy, and then I came out and I was a girl. And they had already been calling me Blake for months because they were positive I was going to be a boy. And they had been calling me Blake for so long, they just [kept it].”
Her father, longtime character actor Ernie Lively, who played her father in both “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” movies, died in June 2021.
Why does Blake Lively’s daughter have a boy’s name?
Her oldest daughter, James Reynolds Ryan Reynolds, was named after Ryan Reynolds’ father, who died of Parkinson’s in 2015.
“It felt right,” Reynolds told Mr. Porter. “All family relationships come with some complications. For better or worse, all roads lead here. At the end of the day, it’s easier to focus on the good stuff than the bad. My father died soon after my daughter was born, but he got to see her, which makes me happy.”
Both parents are hoping gender-neutral names will help their daughters grow up understanding they can do anything men can do, just like their mom did.
“Right now, my daughter thinks there’s no difference between her and a boy. She can do anything he can do,” Lively told People.
“She has every opportunity that he has. She doesn’t learn anything different. So I hope that she never learns anything different. I’m afraid she will, because that’s society, and while it’s changing, we still have a long way to go.”
