Blake Lively didn’t want to become an actress

Los Angeles, June 16 (IANS) Blake Lively has revealed that there was a time when she didn’t want to follow her family into the film business and become an actress.


She is the daughter of Ernie Lively, an actor, and his wife, Elaine, who worked as a talent scout.

The “Gossip Girl” star says she once tried to stray away from films as all her family had worked in the movie industry, reports

“I didn’t want to be an actor, because they were all doing it,” Lively told Marie Claire magazine.

“When you are the youngest of five kids, you think, ‘Who am I?’ If this is who they are, and they are shaping who I am so much, then who would I be? You strive for your own identity,” she added.

The 28-year-old actress — who has a 17-month-old daughter James with Ryan Reynolds and is expecting her second child — had previously said she had to take a two-year break from acting as she was “exhausted both physically and creatively”.
