Blake Lively talks about being a shy teenager in a new interview

Blake Lively talks about being a shy teenager in a new interview

Blake Lively gave an interview for the british magazine Psychologies were she talked about being a shy teenager and her upcoming movie The Rhythm Section. The interview was transcribed by the team of Blake Lively Source, so please, give the due credits.

Actress Blake Lively talks about being a shy teenager, how she built her confidence through acting, and her new film,The Rhythm Section, in which she plays an ex-heroin addict.

On the surface, Blake Lively has it all. much more outgoing and enthusiastic. Happily married t0 Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds and mother of James, four, and Inez, two, she enjoys the kind of life that comes with being a talented and successful actress. But, growing up in California in a family of entertainers, Lively was a tall, gangly and awkward teenager whose insecurities were a constant source of anguish for her. ‘I was pretty shy growing up,Lively admits. ‘I had problems with some of the other girls in high school and, because I was tall, I felt insecure about standing out in a crowd when I really just wanted to disappear and be alone. I was kind of withdrawn and I spent a lot of time by myself, lost in my own thoughts.’ But it was acting that built her confidence. ‘It wasn’t until I began taking acting classes that I was able to overcome my shyness in social situations. When I was 15 or 16, I started becoming much more outgoing and enthusiastic with people; I had spent so much time being this
strange introvert but, deep down, I was longing to have fun and be expressive.

It was only a few years later that Lively would burst onto the scene with her role as Upper East Side princess Serena van der Woodsen in the TV series Gossip Girl. Today, she’s enjoying life with Reynolds of Deadpool fame. While he has reinvigorated his career with the billion- dollar ‘anti-superhero’ franchise, she has maintained a steady workload while raising their children. Some of her recent films include last summer’s A Simple Favor, a mystery thriller co-starring Anna Kendrick; The Shallows, in which she plays a desperate surfer trying to survive a shark attack; and drama The Age Of Adaline.

Lively’s new film, however, the action thriller The Rhythm Section, marks a distinctive change of pace for the actress, who plays a former heroin addict, Stephanie Patrick, who transforms her life pursuing the people who orchestrated the plane crash that killed her family. Shot mostly in Dublin and Madrid, the highly anticipated film, directed by Reed Morano (The Handmaid’s Tale), co-stars Jude Law. ‘I did ride-alongs with police on drug busts and spent a lot of time walking through alleyways talking to addicts, some of whom were just teenagers,’ explains Lively about her preparation for the role. ‘It was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.

For the past four years, Lively and Reynolds have chosen to live far away from Hollywood in the quiet town of Bedford in upstate New York with their daughters [James is named after Reynolds’ late father]. They also hope to expand their family in the coming years: ‘I’m one of five kids; Ryan’s one of four — so we’re officially breeders!’ In the meantime, the couple have opted to pursue their acting careers with as much passion as ever, staggering their work schedules and accompanying each other on set with the children in tow. ‘We decided that we wouldn’t be separated as a family, so we just make a home for our kids in whichever place we happen to be filming’ she says. Lively recently revealed that long before they became romantically involved, she sensed there was something special about her relationship with Reynolds. ‘I knew he’d be my best friend for my whole life. That was the biggest thing for me. I’d never known anything like the friendship I had with him. I liked him as much as I came to love him.’

The Interview

You seem to have a pretty positive personality. Is that your nature?

I get that from my mother. She would always tell me and my sister: ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way.’ That serves as my personal mantra when things get complicated in life and you want to feel sorry for yourself. I try not to let myself go there because it doesn’t do you any good, and that’s the time when you need to energise yourself even more, rather than mope around. I’m usually in pretty good spirits and I like to think I bring a positive mood to people around me.

Even though you have confessed to being shy and awkward as a young person, did you have an upbeat perspective on things, even back then?

Even as a little girl, I would think, ‘It’s a good day to be happy!’ That kind of feeling and thinking has stayed with me my entire life and I hope I never lose it. If you have self-confidence and a strong sense of
determination, then good things are going to happen to you. You can make your own luck, even when life
throws roadblocks in your way.

Do you find yourself becoming more confident with age, success, and the life you’ve made as a wife and mother?

Confidence is a strange thing sometimes. I was lucky that I grew up in a secure home environment with a family that was very supportive and loving. Then, as a young adult when you’re living on your own and making your way in life, you can lose that confidence, especially in this business where the media often tries to bring you down and some people take pleasure in criticising your work. So, that makes you question yourself; a lot of self-doubt started to creep into my head, even though I was on a successful TV
series. I went through so much soul-searching and it took me several years to regain my confidence. But I also think so much of that just has to do with struggling to figure out who you are, especially in your 20s.

Have you overcome your tendency towards shyness in social occasions?

I am much less inhibited and more open with people than I was when I was younger. Acting did that for me… But I’m still slow to make friends. I’m not the type 0f person who meets someone and, after a few minutes, I want to exchange phone numbers. It takes me some time to feel comfortable with someone.

How do you feel about performing in films with dark storylines — the violent Savages [directed by Oliver Stone] and your troubled character in The Rhythm Section?
I get to project myself into all these dark spaces and indulge in a lot of heavy psychological states. That’s what I love about acting. It helps me to understand myself better and not just stay in my comfortable little world. I’m a pretty happy person but it’s much more interesting to play tormented women who have to struggle in life. I feel that every time I finish a film I’ve become a stronger person and that pushing yourself to the maximum leaves you feeling much more confident and less fearful.

Apart from work, you’ve continued to indulge in your passion for cooking over the years… [Lively worked as a pastry chef at the celebrated Per Se restaurant in New York on her 23rd birthday and Reynolds often makes reference to his wife’s prowess in the kitchen.]

I like to tell people that I’m really a cook by nature and an actress by accident! I feel that I have a natural gift for cooking. I can get incredibly passionate about coming up with interesting dishes and learning how to prepare food and create different flavors and tastes. I love to cook for my friends and I can spend hours in my kitchen trying out various ideas and learning to concoct meals with attention to detail and taste.

Are you enjoying married life?

It’s been wonderful. Ryan and I like doing everything together. He loves helping me choose things for the house, he’s interested in all types of cuisine, and he says he loves everything I cook for him — he’s such a good liar! We help each other when we’re preparing our characters for a new nlm, too. It’s great to be partners like that with someone you love.

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.

Blake and Ryan celebrate daughter James’s birthday at Disneyland

After Ryan and Blake two daughters melted the coldest of hearts with their red carpet appearance last week, the family headed to Disneyland to celebrate their eldest child James’s second birthday.

And it’s safe to say we were all walking versions of the heart eye emoji after seeing the photos: and are even more so now, after Ryan and Blake were pictured at Disneyland over the weekend, too. Although their daughters weren’t pictured, Blake and Ryan stopped for a photo op with Mickey Mouse in front of Sleeping Beauty’s Winter Castle – with a source telling E! The girls joined their parents later in the day for some rides and fun at the Happiest Place on Earth (especially when Blake and Ryan are involved).

Ryan talks about his family official public debut at Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony

Aww. Blake’s first baby daughter is growing up fast, and oh my goodness isn’t she cute! I literally think she’s the cutest kid I’ve seen in a long time!

James, who just turned two – ahead of her birthday, made her official public debut at her daddy’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony, with her little sister Ines by her side.

Normally we don’t drop the whole family out like this, but I just thought I’d regret this in 20 years if I didn’t have my kids here as well… So we all, we decided collectively just to come down here in one big movement and be a part of this…

And it sure was a memorable moment, certainly a proud moment for his family and an equally awe-inducing moment for the fans. Reynolds had this to say about his wife, and daughters during his speech at the ceremony:

“I want to thank my wife, Blake, you make everything better, I mean absolutely everything in my life better,” he said in a video captured by ET. “You’ve given us two of the most incredible children I could ever hope to have…”

OK, swooning overload.

Spotted at JFK Airport

Blake was spotted with Ryan and their baby girl at JFK Airport on March 1st …

More Baby Blake News

Blake Lively is all smiles on the cover of People magazine. She became a mom just last month, but has been primed for the job for years.

“I’m always teasing my sister’s kids that they are my own, and I’m always taking care of other people’s kids,” says the star, who welcomed her first child with husband Ryan Reynolds in December. (At press time the new parents had not yet revealed the baby’s gender or name.)

“Maybe because I didn’t grow up with little siblings, I’ve been making up for lost time. I’ve always felt like a mama.”

Now that she actually is one, “I don’t feel like it’s a massive change. I’ve always wanted a big family, and I understand that feeling when you have your first kid of ‘Let’s really be present in this.’ I do want to just enjoy this moment.”

But? “But I also feel like my first child is going to be the oldest sibling to the next kid, and that may change with each and every year. You don’t just raise your kids, your kids also raise each other – oh my Lord, the things I learned from my brother Eric. He’s influenced my life so much. So I’m looking forward to how one baby influences the other, and to my family as a whole, to every single chapter.”

Co-star and close friend, Amber Tamblyn was one of the last to find out. Tamblyn told People magazine that when she went to visit Lively, she had no idea there would be a baby present. “I went up there and I didn’t know, everybody knew but me, and she does that shit to me,” Tamblyn said. Apparently, Lively texted Tamblyn about new wallpaper that she was anxious for her friend to see. But that wallpaper turned out to be a newborn. “And I went up there, and there was her baby,” Tamblyn said. “That bitch! She tricked me!” Tamblyn joked.

Tamblyn said that all of the “Sisterhood” girls have seen the baby. “I’m very excited for her and Ryan, and to be an auntie,” Tamblyn said. “All of us are godmothers, so we are very happy.”
