Turns out, Blake Lively's much less private than we first thought—just like Gwyneth Paltrow! Love all these stars' recent romance confessionals, don't you?

The Gossip Girl star just dished some secrets about her love life in the March issue of Elle, and we can't help but wonder if Ms. L.'s trying to tell a little white lie.

So, what has us calling Blake's bluff? And what did she exclusively reveal about her perfect romantic night?

Let's just say if the leggy blonde is telling the truth, 2011 has been a very busy year in boyfriend land…

"I've had four boyfriends in my whole life. I've never been with anyone that's not a boyfriend," Blake fessed up.

Wow, Blake, what a revelation! Considering we've met all four of the dudes—let's do the math:

One: Kelly Blatz, Blake's least-famous beau, whom she dated for three years before landing her lead role on Gossip Girl. The long time friends costarred in the 2006 thriller Simon Says—before Blake moved on to the Upper East Side…

Two: Penn Badgley, whom Lively dated for three years before officially ending the relaysh in 2010. Penn's now linked to Zoë Kravitz. And Blake? Babe continued climbing the A-list ladder.

Three: Leonardo DiCaprio, whom Blake dated for a mere five months, but the two enjoyed a luxe summer romance—jetting off to Australia and yachting in Monte Carlo. But the sexy pair didn't last—Leo's hot and heavy with his latest bombshell GF, and Blake's one-upped the model lover himself.

Four: Ryan Reynolds, Blake's current (and hottest) boyfriend of the four, whom Blake's been linked to since October. The duo met on set while filming Green Latern and have been going strong ever since Blake split with Leo.

So there ya have it, Awful readers, Blake's entire dating history (according to her, of course) in one tiny item.

But perhaps we shouldn't be so hard on Blakey. After all, gal is drop-dead gorgeous, and who wouldn't jump at the opportunity to date ab-tastic Ryan Reynolds? But we can't help but fess it seems rather unlikely we've seen all of Blake's relationships played out in public.

Regardless of whether we caught Blake in a fib, the gal did reveal her perfect date night, which is much more low-key than you may guess:

"See, a romantic night out for me is a romantic night in. I love to cook and just beautiful music that you could control, like Billie Holiday or Chet Baker or Édith Piaf. And, you know, a beautiful movie—a Godard movie, Breathless. I don't know. For me, being in is more romantic," Blake gushed to us.

Ya hear that, Ry? Cue the Billie Holiday and hopefully you'll fare better than the last three beaus.
