Blake Lively Is In Talks For New ‘Gossip Girl’-Style TV Series

Blake Lively Is In Talks For New ‘Gossip Girl’-Style TV Series

Lively is currently in talks with Amazon Studios for a scripted fashion series, the company’s head of entertainment, Jennifer Salke, revealed at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit this week.

Amazon Studio head Jennifer Salke surprised the crowd at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit on Wednesday by making two announcements: that the Emmy-winning Marvelous Mrs. Maisel would return for a second season in December (after she showed a short clip from an upcoming episode), and that actress Blake Lively will develop a scripted series for the streaming network. She hinted that Lively’s show had a fashion theme and a merchandising component.

Salke said she decided to pull the trigger on the Lively project moments before she walked onstage. “I just told business affairs I’m going to do this,” she continued, noting that Lively was currently in Rome, sleeping. “She’ll wake up to it.

Divulging that the deal is just “a moment from done”, Salke described Lively as “a force of nature: ambitious, smart and talented,” reports Variety.

Blake also has a huge appetite for a big scripted show with a really interesting writer who I can’t talk about yet,” Salke revealed at the Summit. “[They] will bring to life a scripted show that will be excellent and culturally relevant and original and all those things, but it will also have a connection to a merchandising opportunity,

Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively ask each other some very important questions

 Buzzfeed UK

The stars of A Simple Favor told us all about their first impressions of each other and their worst days on set.

It feels like Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively should’ve been in a movie together years ago. They have great chemistry; they’re both hilarious, and they’ve been IRL friends ever since Anna worked with Blake’s husband, Ryan Reynolds, on 2014’s The Voices. Now they’re finally teaming up professionally for A Simple Favor, the new darkly comic thriller from Bridesmaids director Paul Feig. After her best friend Emily (Blake) goes missing, stay-at-home mom Stephanie (Anna) makes it her mission to find out exactly what happened. But it turns out there’s a lot more to Emily’s backstory than Stephanie ever knew.

We at BuzzFeed love Blake and Anna, so when we were given the opportunity to talk to them aboutA Simple Favor in London this week, we jumped at the chance. They told us all about their first impressions of each other, their worst days on set, and much, much more…

Anna Kendrick: Oh god, I’m nervous. I’m actually nervous! OK… What was the first thing you thought when you met me?

Blake Lively: Well, the first time I met you, we were, like, 18 or 19, and I remember being nervous. We met through friends, and it was right after the premiere of Rocket Science, and you were just so good and I was just like, oh you’re so funny and charming. I was like, wow, this girl’s really cool.

AK: Aw, she’s nice.

BL: I was nervous!

AK: That’s so weird!

BL: But when somebody’s so sharp and so funny and so smart and you can tell that’s coming from their mind and not from the script…

AK: Yeah. SNL was the worst week of my life. I was like, “I’m so afraid of all of you.”

BL: What was the best thing about getting to work with me?

BL: Where do you start? [laughs]

AK: It was great to have that kind of partner-in-crime vibe with you. Sometimes you work with somebody, and they’re great — they’re really, genuinely great — and they just have a very different working style, let’s say. You know, they’re the kind of person that you can’t come to them in between and be like, “Yo, let me tell you what just happened.” So that was great.

BL: Aw, that’s nice.

AK: What was your reaction when you found out we’d be working together?

BL: What was my reaction? Oh my gosh.

AK: Dude, were you, like, sooo intimidated by my physicality?

BL: I was excited to be working with you… I mean like, you know, a little disappointed ’cause I’m told Dame Judi Dench was gonna be the mommy vlogger.

AK: That would’ve been great. We’ve done a couple of things where we’ve done bits about, like, Cate Blanchett or Dame Judi Dench and I’m like, I would watch that movie! I would love that movie!

BL: No, but actually, I was especially excited because this script and this book is very much a straight thriller, and I knew Paul really wanted to make it more comedic and fun and playful but that didn’t really necessarily make sense for the script. So as soon as he hired you, I was like, oh, we’re good. All of the comedy and the levity and the acerbic wit will come through.

AK: This is like Compliment Fest 5000.

BL: I know, our egos are gonna be so big when we walk out of here.

BL: What was the most challenging role you’ve ever played?

BL: That has nothing to do with me! Next question!

AK: Honestly, this [A Simple Favor] was really hard! The tone of the movie — we talked about that basically every day — like, what is the tone of the movie? We were playing with all these different things. There were definitely times when I was like, “Paul, you definitely want the audience to like the protagonist of the film, right? We’re not doing a weird thing where the audience is supposed to be like, ‘God, the lead of the film is awful!’”

I’m so controlling, and all these things that women aren’t supposed to be. Honestly, it was really challenging to try to make her human — to make that show through the cracks of the incredibly irritating facade that she puts on. So that was that answer that had nothing to do with you. And also you’re very pretty.

AK: What was the most difficult scene to film in A Simple Favor?

BL: Oh, boy. I think the most difficult scene to film was probably the scene at the end of the film, where we set up all these plot twists and turns and then it was the big reveal. That was another 11-page scene and it was you, me, and Henry [Golding]. That was tricky because we, on the day, had to make the plot twists make sense. And they didn’t totally make sense, as we revealed. We sat there with Paul, and Paul was like, “Wait, you’re right.” And so you came up with the best solution ever.

AK: Thank you, my lady. I remember being done with that day and being mentally exhausted from trying to make sure that it all made sense. Because once we’d discovered that there was one thing we had to change, I was questioning every line. I was saying a line, and then going, “Does that make any fucking sense?”

BL: My other most challenging day — I’m still scarred by this — was when I worked late the night before, and so they told me to come in an hour and a half later the next morning, but didn’t make you come in later. I came to set and I was in hair and makeup, and I was like, “Oh, so weird, is Anna — where is she?” and they were like, “Oh, she’s been ready for an hour. We didn’t push her call.”

AK: That was the day I decided I hate you.

BL: It was so mortifying. You’re working in every scene in this movie, and I come in for a few weeks like, “Just wait for me for an hour and a half while I get my hair braided!” I literally wanted to die and I sucked so bad in that scene because I never recovered.

AK: We were all talking shit about you.

BL: I never recovered from it!

AK: No, of course! I had one day, if it makes you feel any better — on this film, actually — I had a day that my alarm didn’t go off and somebody was knocking on my door to my apartment. I woke up and heard someone knocking, and immediately I was just like, “No no no no no!” You run to the door and you still have zit cream on and you’re like, “I’ll be ready in two seconds, I’m so sorry!” And the whole day you’re apologising to everybody. So we’re in the same boat, sister.

BL: What scene from A Simple Favorwas the most fun for you to film?

AK: I really feel like the first scene — not the scene where we meet, but the scene where we go to your house. I was having a lot of fun that day, because we were nervous about it feeling like a really contentious relationship. We found a way to kind of flirt with each other that was really fun, even though the things we’re saying don’t necessarily have that element. That was a really fun day.

AK: What was the most exciting element of playing your character in A Simple Favor?

BL: I guess just thinking of things that would make my mom so uncomfortable. I thought, I could just say whatever I want, because this isn’t me. So I was just thinking, What will make my mom want to leave the theatre?

AK: That is a great motivation. You hear that, Mom?

BL: We’ve both played a diverse range of characters throughout our careers. What kind of role would you most like to play next?

BL: Do you see how I made that about me at the beginning of this question? [laughs]

AK: I actually would like to play a villain. I know you’ve said that you had a lot of fun playing a villain. I’ve played flawed characters and characters who do things that aren’t necessarily very well-intentioned sometimes, but I’ve never done a true villain. So that would be fun. Super or non.

AK: What were you most apprehensive about when it came to playing your character in A Simple Favor?

BL: I guess, you know, I was on a TV show for six years where I played a girl from the Upper East Side who wore lots of pretty clothes, and so this was a fashion woman who works on the Upper East Side. I wanted it to be a very different look and vibe than that, so that’s one of the reasons why I ended up in men’s suits.

AK: I also remember the day you told me that you had just bought that Gucci belt — this was a year ago, so she was ahead of the trend.

BL: Oh, yeah, I threw that in the trash immediately after. [laughs]

AK: And Ryan [Reynolds] was like, “Why are you wearing a Gossip Girl belt?”

BL: Oh yeah, I forgot that! Because of the two GGs. It’s even the same font. It’s so embarrassing. I was a walking, talking, “look at me” ad.

AK: Yeah, I was like, that is brilliant. Because that was his initial reaction — you got yourself a monogrammed Gossip Girl belt. That was amazing.

BL: If you could incorporate any of your character’s personality traits into your real life, what would it be?

AK: None? I mean… [thinks for a long time] You know, she can do a rap in the car. I’ll give her that.

BL: Yeah, but you can too. So what would you incorporate from her?

AK: Ooh! I guess I would be a better cook. She’s supposed to be a cook and I would love to be able to know how to do that. But without working at it. Without, like, having to learn and try hard. That would be great.

AK: If you could use any line from the movie as a personal motto, what would it be?

AK: Go right at ’em or they’ll fuck you in the face?

BL: Yeah! The powerful ones. “You’ve gotta go right at ’em, or they’ll fuck you in the face.”

AK: Which is true.

BL: Or, “If your head’s gonna end up in a trash can, your head’s gonna end up in a trash can.”

AK: Oh, I did like that one.

BL: You actually said that in that moment, “What if your head ends up in a trash can?” That was you that teed that whole thing up, because that wasn’t in there. It was great! It was just like, “Oh, I don’t date people from the city, I’m scared.” But you took it to the next level by being like, “But what if my head ends up in a trash can?” Which is so disturbing.

AK: Oooh, that says something about my brain.

BL: There are a lot of comedy moments in the film. Was any of it improvised? If so, what was your favourite scene to improvise?

AK: Yeah, some — not like full Bridesmaids improvised. I feel like the first day we did all of those improvs was when Paul just kept making me come up with gross-sounding martinis, and that was my big win for the day. Then I ended up looking up all these flavoured vodkas to see if they actually were martinis.

BL: Yeah, and they were on the menu at TGI Friday’s.

AK: I was like, at a certain point, it’s not a martini any more. It is disturbing to know how many flavours of vodka exist in the world. When you’re at key lime pie, you’ve gone too far.

60 seconds with Blake Lively – Coveteur

Coveteur

Her favorite burger topping, and the secret talent so secret she doesn’t even know it herself.

Dripping in Lorraine Schwartz diamonds—stacked on every finger, up the earlobe, and extra earrings pinned on lapels like broaches—and wearing a stippled Bottega Veneta pantsuit that plays tricks on the brain like a Magic Eye painting. It’s a look only Blake Lively can pull off. But are you surprised? In her latest role, as Emily in the twisty-turny comedic thriller A Simple Favor, she shares the same inimitable sartorial tact.

Blake Lively, Henry Golding, and Anna Kendrick Get Naughty in A Simple Favor

Blake Lively, Henry Golding, and Anna Kendrick Get Naughty in A Simple Favor

Vanity Fair – Comedy director Paul Feig turns dark with his latest film, A Simple Favor—a noir thriller starring Blake Lively, Anna Kendrick, and Crazy Rich Asians breakout Henry Golding—which gives its cast a chance to portray the sort of sinister characters they’ve never played before.

It was so much fun to play someone who is so incredibly heightened. My character is a complete psychopath,” said Lively at the film’s premiere, held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York on Monday. “She’s so different than me. I don’t really swear, and I don’t drink. The whole experience was fun. I got to be a wild child.

Lively, who arrived at the premiere with husband Ryan Reynolds, was thrilled to work with Feig on a genre-bending movie like this one. “He cranks these characters up, and makes them so over the top that it makes it comedic and funny,” she said. “I love that, because every day we had complete freedom to be emotional—to be over the top, funny, and to make bold choices. You don’t always get that. Sometimes you’re boxed in.

Based on Darcey Bell’s popular 2017 novel, A Simple Favor (out September 14) centers on perky, type A, suburban-mommy vlogger Stephanie Smothers (Kendrick), who seeks to solve the sudden disappearance of her new friend, Emily Nelson (Lively). Emily vanishes after she asked Stephanie for a simple favor: to pick up her son from school one afternoon. Stephanie and Emily’s husband, Sean Townsend (Golding), set out to find where she has gone. The missing-person plot takes several warped twists and turns, keeping moviegoers off-balance as the mystery unfolds.

Golding, for one, said he was “gobsmacked” by that serpentine plot. “There are these moments where I was like, ‘This is insane!’ And there is a lot of potty-mouthed dialogue, and it comes from surprising areas.

Kendrick, tasked with playing an overzealous parent who video-blogs about homemade gazpacho, also found the film demanding—especially when her character had to go up against Lively’s.

O.K.—for real, it was a challenge,” the Oscar-nominated actress said on the carpet. “The character that I end up going head-to-head with is a very strong, beautiful woman, and my character is lonely, and she’s awkward, and doesn’t always say the right thing. So I tried to show her humanity as much as I could, because normally if I’m in a situation where I’m up against a 5-foot-10-inch blonde who’s beautiful, well dressed, and wealthy, I rely on wit and my sense of humor. And that wasn’t something that I could rely on with Stephanie. So I really had to dig deep and find the ways that I could show you that she’s been through trauma, and behaves in ways that are off-putting because she’s trying to cover the darkness that she feels inside of her. It was a lot of emotional work, but it was really fun. And it’s nice to have that kind of challenge.

As Emily’s morally ambiguous husband, Golding upends expectations at every turn. It’s a role completely opposite from his lovable, swoon-inducing on-screen persona in Crazy Rich Asians.

You’re kind of unsure if my character is good or bad,” said Golding. “That’s something that I want to continue—not just be stereotyped and be the heartthrob and romantic lead, but to play as diverse [of] characters as possible.

Golding had finished Crazy Rich Asians, his first big-screen role, a mere two weeks before Feig contacted him about A Simple Favor. Feig had learned about Golding through his wife, a fan of the Crazy Rich Asians books who had been following news about the movie. “I watched all of Henry’s travel shows that he hosted, and I fell in love with him,” said Feig. “He’s so charming and so charismatic. And then I called Jon [M. Chu, who directed Crazy Rich Asians,] and asked, ‘Can he act?’ And he said, ‘He’s the best. He works so hard. He’s the nicest guy in the world.’ And I was like, ‘He’s in!’ Henry is a movie star that I have not seen in a long time. He’s a version of Cary Grant.

Since the release of his first blockbuster, Golding’s life has changed dramatically. He’s getting recognized on the street, sitting in the front row at fashion shows, and enjoying the perks of fame—especially the special treatment he gets at airports.

One time, I got picked up at L.A.X., and they have this special car that takes you from the plane on the tarmac directly to the other place where they collect your bags,” he revealed. “It was like a little strange look into the world of Crazy Rich Asians. I’m not used to that at all. That was a treat!

How Blake Lively learned to stop saying ‘I’m sorry’

USA TODAY – In “A Simple Favor,” Blake Lively plays her most unapologetic character yet.

Emily (Lively) is a martini-swilling, foul-mouthed enigma: effortlessly cool and besotted with her husband (Henry Golding) and young son (Ian Ho), but secretly desperate to escape their cushy suburban lifestyle and unleash her dark side.

Peppy mommy blogger Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) is instantly drawn to Emily when they meet at their children’s school, and begins to emulate her confident approach to life as their friendship deepens.

Never say sorry — it’s a (expletive) up female habit,” Emily reprimands Stephanie early in the R-rated thriller (in theaters Sept. 14). It’s a reminder that Lively, 31, finds empowering, both in her own career and in the context of the film.

I don’t think it’s a female-specific thing, although maybe females are encouraged to apologize more often for themselves, unfairly,Lively tells USA TODAY.  “But I actually really love that Emily makes note of that: ‘Stop minimizing yourself, you don’t need to apologize.’ She sees a lot of value in Stephanie and is trying to say, ‘Step into your skin.’ She thinks this woman is awesome.

The “Gossip Girl” actress admits that, early in her career, she often felt discouraged from voicing opinions in meetings or on a set. But by choosing to work with open-minded collaborators, including “Simple” director Paul Feig, she learned to stop saying “sorry” for speaking up.

With age, you get more and more confident,Lively says. “I spent a lot of my creative life trying to just go along with it, and when I had ideas, I felt like they weren’t encouraged. People just want you to show up, put on clothes, say words that aren’t yours and do what you’re told to do, versus actually being a creative partner. The older I’ve gotten, the more I’ve realized how much better work I do when I get to collaborate, and it’s really not worth it otherwise.

“So I’ve found that the work I’m most proud of are the experiences in which I was valued and those are not ones where you’re apologizing — those are ones where any idea is welcomed and heard. Those experiences teach me to stand up for what I believe in, creatively.

Blake Lively’s engagement ring in A Simple Favor was inspired by Princess Diana’s

Blake Lively’s engagement ring in A Simple Favor was inspired by Princess Diana’s

Warning: Minor spoilers ahead. 

From crystal-studded Christian Louboutins to a snap-off dickie (yes, dickie), there is more than a concession stand’s worth of fashion eye candy in the dark comedic thriller A Simple Favor. But one accessory truly stole the spotlight: the giant sapphire-and-diamond engagement ring that Blake Lively’s character, Emily Nelson, wears, which once belonged to the character’s mother-in-law — and serves as an important plot point for the film.

The dazzling piece bears an uncanny resemblance to another (very famous) family heirloom, and according to the film’s costume designer, Renée Ehrlich Kalfus, that similarity was on purpose.

It’s a take on Princess Diana’s ring,” she says, referencing the 12-carat oval sapphire surrounded by diamonds that’s now worn by Kate Middleton. “I wanted to do something vintage, but the director [Paul Feig] thought it should be more on the nose.

The traditional ring is an interesting choice for the anything-but-traditional Emily. She’s a high-powered fashion publicist who works in New York City, but lives in a Connecticut suburb with her husband and son, much to her dissatisfaction. “She doesn’t care about fitting in,” Kalfus says of the character. “She had her own agenda.

To convey that message, Kalfus looked to a trio of iconic Hollywood stars — Katherine Hepburn, Lauren Bacall, Diane Keaton — as well as the movie’s director for inspiration. “Paul goes to work every day in a Savile Row suit,” says Kalfus of Feig, who also directed Bridesmaids and Spy. “He feels he can get anyone to answer anything while wearing a suit.

She then tapped Feig and Lively’s contacts at Ralph Lauren for access to their vintage archives and was able to use several looks, including a three-piece suit and a killer tuxedo, all custom-tailored for Lively. Kalfus decked out each look with men’s jewelry like vintage watch fobs and multiple tie bars. “It gave her more armor, more stuff to keep people away,” says Kalfus.

Even covered up head-to-toe in a suit, Emily finds ways to flash more than just a little skin. In one early scene, she removes her jacket and shirt (which turns out to be not much more than a collar), before enjoying a gin martini (her signature drink) in a low-cut vest and a pair of faux cuffs, while her new (and visibly flustered) mom friend, Stephanie (Anna Kendrick) looks on.

I don’t think we told Anna that it was going to happen,” says Kalfus of the striptease-like sequence. “It was just a way of making Emily more intimidating and kind of weird.

In a later scene, Emily appears to forgo a top altogether under her suit jacket, although Kalfus swears she had on a blouse. (“It was very strategically tucked into a cummerbund, just enough to give a little side boob.”)

Accessories added another element of sex appeal, most notably Emily’s enviable collection of Louboutins, which we get a glimpse of in a shot of her enormous closet. “Because Blake has a relationship with Louboutin, we got boxes and boxes of boots, loafers, and heels.” All of the footwear is spectacular, but one pair of six-inch sparkly ombre Louboutins  stands out to Kalfus. “Blake had to run in them and she was like, ‘It’s fine, I can do this.’”

Not to be completely overshadowed by her glamorous friend, Kendrick’s Stephanie — a DIY mommy vlogger who’s desperate to fit in — has some memorable style moments of her own in the movie, including a hilarious scene featuring a pair of cat socks from Target.

After spending more time with Emily, Stephanie gets inspired to up her own style game by wearing an Alice + Olivia pom pom sweater and floral skirt (below). “When Anna put on that outfit she said, ‘I’m not sure I get this,’” says Kalfus with a laugh. “And I said, ‘trust me.’”

Kalfus pushed the costume boundaries with both characters for a reason — to suck you into the movie. “You should want to be one of of these women while you’re watching it. It’s that aspirational piece that gets you involved in the story.

Blake Lively explains why she dislikes ‘Idyllic’ mommy blogs

Blake Lively explains why she dislikes ‘Idyllic’ mommy blogs

People – In her new thriller A Simple Favor, actress and mother of two Blake Lively plays a fashion executive who is best friends with a mommy blogger (played by Anna Kendrick).

But in real life, the mom to daughters Inez, 2 this month, and James, 3½, with husband Ryan Reynolds says she can’t stand looking at mom blogs — unless she needs some sort of comic relief.

They’re one of the greatest brands of humor,Lively tells PEOPLE for this week’s issue. “It’s just these images of people in their idyllic lives and these worlds that leave me like, ‘I’m just a terrible parent and don’t have it figured out at all.’

But the 31-year-old star says she knows that what she’s looking at isn’t actually real. I love thinking about what their house looks like in the image [they’re presenting] and then thinking about what it actually looks like behind that perfect shot,” she explains.

In 2016, the Gossip Girl alum joked on Late Night With Seth Myers about following a “perfect” mom blogger on Instagram.

Her toddler is giving her reflexology massages. What?! My kid is, like, playing with explosive devices,” she joked. “I don’t know where she found them. She already knows how to drywall because she puts holes in the wall.

In 2017, Lively also opened up to PEOPLE about her parenting style. “I think it’s hard to slap labels on any parents because it’s just so tricky. It’s like every moment you’re figuring out what the heck you’re doing,” she said.  “You think, ‘Ooh, should I be more strict, or should I be more, I don’t know, emotional?’ Or whatever it is.

The star added, “If anybody knows how to be a parent, I feel like grandparents really know how to be parents. But parents, you just figure it out as you go. So, I wouldn’t put a label on it.

The Hollywood Reporter Interview (Video)

In Studio With Blake Lively: Playing a Blind Woman Who Regained Sight in ‘All I See is You’ interview by The Hollywood Reporter…

Blake Lively Opens Up about the “Most Intense Film” of Her Career

How All I See Is You challenged Lively to dig into a difficult role and see nude scenes in a new light.

In the upcoming drama All I See Is You, Blake Lively plays a nearly blind woman whose sight is restored after an urgent, miraculous surgery. The character, Gina, then goes through a whirlwind of change, discovering new things about herself, her sexuality, and her marriage. It’s a fraught psychological affair, with Gina’s husband (played by Jason Clarke) slowly realizing that he misses the days when his wife was wholly dependent on him.

“It’s the performance that I’m most proud of,” Lively tells Vanity Fair.

Directed by Marc Forster, the film requires a lot of Lively, who appears in nearly every scene as her character transforms from a meek woman into a determined siren. Forster shapes the drama with experimental flair, featuring kaleidoscopic imagery and racy scenes that required Lively to appear partially nude on screen for the first time in her career.

That was so outside her wheelhouse that Lively almost never saw the script in the first place; her team assumed she would not be interested in a role that required nudity, and Forster was unwilling to remove it. “I thought well, he’s not unmoving. Let me read it and if it’s great, then I’ll [talk] him out of it.”

So Lively read the script, and instantly fell in love—nude scene and all. The way Forster had written it actually changed the way Lively viewed on-screen nudity: “I always find nudity distracting,” she says. “I’m very in love with my husband, but if there’s a pair of boobs out, I’m a human being! You’re like ‘boobs!’ It doesn’t mean I’m lusting for them, [but] when there’s naked boobies, you look at them.”

For character research, Lively consulted with blind friends and experimented with using blackout glasses. Throughout the film, the actress also has to wear a variety of contact lenses to show her character’s evolving states of visibility. In an act of true kismet, the on-set lens technician who worked with Lively had actually gone through something similar to her character’s experience, and was able to serve as an instant resource for the actress.

“I was really acting for her,” she says. “[I would ask] is this the accurate reaction? How do you feel? If I would make her laugh, or if I would make her cry . . . then I knew I was doing my job.”

The film took place and was actually shot in Thailand last year. Lively leapt right into the job just four months after giving birth to her second daughter, working grueling 19-hour work days. “I don’t remember a moment that we weren’t filming,” she says. “It was the most intense film I’d ever been on.”

When asked how one manages to keep up regular 19-hour work days, Lively laughs: “You just stop sleeping at night.”

All I See Is You hits theaters on October 27. Check out an poster and screencaps we have added to the gallery…

Glamour Magazine (Scans)

Blake candidly opening up about Ryan her other half – who she married in 2012 – as she talks to Glamour magazine that their friendship manage to the lay the foundations for a loving relationship and has been vital in overcoming conflict.

And while a girl’s girl, she insisted that unlike previous romances she now goes to Ryan for advice and a shoulder to cry rather than her girlfriends.

She began: ‘In other relationships, if something came up, I would call my girlfriends, or my sister, and say, “Hey, this is what he did – what should I do?”

‘Whereas with him (Ryan Reynolds), we were friends for two years before we were ever dating. And I treat him like my girlfriend.

‘I’m like, “Hey, this happened. It upset me. This is how I feel. What do I do?” And he does the same for me. He treats me like his best buddy.’

While gushing about their respect for one another, Blake gave fans of her husband’s Twitter account – which has amassed over 6.5million followers – some insight into the thought process behind his hilarious tweets that tend to focus on their daughters.

The former Gossip Girl actress – who shares daughters James, two, and 10-month-old Ines with the Hollywood actor – admitted that he makes-up most of his ‘scenarios’ for comic value but it’s what she loves about him.
