They wanted us all to wear the same clothes that we’re wearing on the show.
They wanted that, because then it fed their whole narrative.
While most of the gang were probably consummate professionals most of the time, thrusting a whole lot of very young actors very suddenly into the limelight is a surefire recipe for at least a little bit of scandal, as .
Blake Lively and Penn Badgley weren’t the only couple whose on-screen romance became a real-life relationship—in fact, with the exception of Chace Crawford and Taylor Momsen, everybody in the main cast apparently hooked up with at least one co-star.
Leighton Meester and Sebastian Stan (who will always be Carter Baizen in our hearts, even now that he’s Marvel-famous) were a thing for a while, as were Ed Westwck and Jessica Szohr—which, we know, Chuck and Vanessa barely count as an on-screen romance, but they hook up that one time.
And the adults on set weren’t immune: Matthew Settle and Kelly Rutherford were also rumored to be involved for a while."I remember there was one point where we were just afraid of how our personal lives overlapping our work life could be perceived by our bosses," Lively told recently, “[but then] we were like ‘oh no, that’s exactly what they want.' They wanted us all to date.
Blake and Ryan are big fans of HGTV's Fixer Upper.19.
They're both incredible gift givers: Blake once surprised Ryan with a book of short stories written by loved ones.
Fast-forward a year later and Blake was single and Ryan had just finalised his divorce.
It's hard to imagine a world without Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively's love.
They're so picture-perfect together and we can't get enough of their sweet family, but they were actually dating other people when they first met.
While on a dinner date in Vancouver, Blake and Ryan apparently requested a coloring book so they could play tic-tac-toe. In September 2012, Blake and Ryan held a secret wedding in South Carolina. Their wedding featured an impressive dessert table, a sky lantern release, and a performance by Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine. Now married for five years, they say the secret to their successful marriage is that they don't work at the same time. Blake and Ryan are parents to two little girls: The first, James, was born in December 2014 and the second, Inez, was born in September 2016. Ryan claims to have played "Let's Get It On" by Marvin Gaye while Blake was in labor with James. He's also admitted that when James was born he cried like a "sprinkler head."14.
They made their first public appearance as a family in December 2016, when Ryan was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. One thing Ryan does that annoys Blake is talk in a movie trailer voice. The only woman with Blake's permission to "creep up on" Ryan is Martha Stewart. Blake is an avid baker — so much so that Ryan has dubbed their kitchen "The Blakery."18.
"That was the most awkward date [from their perspective] probably because we were just like fireworks coming across." And the rest is history!
