Rising actress Blake Lively drew attention as Bridget in the teen movie
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005), in which she took home a Teen Choice

received full support from her family to pursue an acting career.

Landing her first screen role in Sandman (1998), the actress then won the role
in the Sisterhood, although at the audition, she gave nothing to the interviewer
but her photo.

Lively was recently seen in the role of Monica in Steve Pink’s teen comedy
Accepted (2006), opposite actor Justin Long. Walking further down the Hollywood
path, she will take the titular role of a beauty queen in the forthcoming comedy
Elvis and Anabelle (2006).

Career:

Ten-year old Blake Lively was introduced to the studio spotlight when she
appeared as Trixie/Tooth Fairy in her father’s musical family movie Sandman
(1998). She then focused on her studies before hitting the big screen again with
the role of Bridget, one of four girlfriends passing around a pair of jeans in
order to stay in touch with each other, in the teen adventure movie The
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (2005). Her fine performance in the movie
brought in a Teen Choice nomination for Choice Movie Breakout Female
Performance. Based on Ann Brashares’ novel, the Ken Kwapis-directed movie also
starred Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel and America Ferrera.

Lively’s overnight success soon brought her guest appearances in TV shows, such
as the talk show “The View” (2005) and “Today” (2005). A year later, the
newcomer joined director/screenwriter William Dear in his horror thriller Simon
Says (2006), playing the supporting role of Jenny. In the film, her father and
two sisters also had a role.

Lively recently adorned the screen by playing Monica, the love interest of
Justin Long’s character, in the teen comedy Accepted (2006), for director Steve
Pink. The film centered on Bartleby Gaines (played by Justin Long) tricking his
parents into creating a fictitious university.

The rising actress will also be seen in the upcoming Will Geiger’s dark comedy
Elvis and Anabelle (2006), in which she will be cast in the starring role of the
titular beauty queen. The project will also feature the performances of actors
Max Minghella and Mary Steenburgen.

Everyone likes to tell stories. And gossip is, of course, even more exciting, if you know the people. But if the gossip's about yourself, it's very weird.
