On August 25, 1987, Blake Ellender Lively ( Brown; born August 25, 1987) is an American actress. Many awards have been bestowed upon her: three Teen Choice Awards, one People’s Choice Award, a nod from the Critics’ Choice Awards, and a nod from the Academy of Country Music.
A native of the Tarzana section of Los Angeles, Blake Ellender Brown was given the name Blake Lively on August 25, 1987. A talent scout by profession, her mother, Elaine (née McAlpin), was a mother figure in the entertainment industry; her father, Ernie Lively, was an actor. Her grandmother’s brother was the inspiration for her middle name, Lively. Eric, her elder brother, and Lori, Robyn, and Jason, her half-siblings from her mother’s previous marriage, round out her family. Eric is her only biological brother. In the entertainment business, her parents and siblings have all worked.
Her parents took her to acting courses as a youngster because they didn’t want to leave her with a babysitter. In her later years as an industrial worker, she credited her increased self-assurance and competence to the “drills” she had learned as a child from witnessing her parents instruct. When she was only 10 years old, she participated in her father’s film, Sandman, which was released in 1998. She refers to herself as a “small part” of the film. Prior to discovering her passion for performing, she was set on attending Stanford University.
A member of the championship choir and a cheerleader at Burbank High School, she also served as class president. During the summer months, her older brother contacted his talent agency to put her through a few auditions. The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005), in which she played Bridget, was her next big break, and she shot all her parts between her junior and senior year of high school.
