Though she got her claim to fame as a member of the Sisterhood of Traveling Pants, Blake Lively really got Hollywood's attention as Serena van der Woodsen in CW's hit series, Gossip Girl.
From there, Blake let her acting skills and beautiful looks speak for themselves. She eventually broke away from her Upper East Side, school girl persona after taking on parts in two blockbuster films, Ben Affleck's The Town and the superhero flick Green Lantern.
As her career took off, Blake's dating life became front-page news. Despite Blake's best efforts to keep her personal life under wraps, the paparazzi have chronicled her dating life. From 2007 to 2010, Lively was linked to Gossip Girl co-star, Penn Badgley. After that, Blake stepped out with one of the biggest names in Hollywood, Leonardo DiCaprio, parting ways after a few short months.
The paps ultimately caught Blake and Green Lantern costar Ryan Reynolds strolling during an Independence Day celebration with the Lively family. The twosome would later get married in a secret wedding on September 9, 2012, in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.
