The Blake Lively net worth has accumulated impressively fast through her active and diverse career. She is a model, actress, mother and self proclaimed “foodie” with role models such as Nigella Lawson and Martha Stewart. Blake Lively is a down to earth, humble star, which only adds to her appeal. She is married to People’s current “Sexiest Dad Alive” Ryan Reynolds (yum!) to the envy of fans and celebrities alike.
Blake Lively Net Worth: $16 Million
Blake Lively has quickly become Hollywood’s wholesome girl next door and has a bank balance to boot. We know her best as the fresh faced, privileged teen, Serena van der Woodsen from the hit TV show Gossip Girl but it was long before then that she began to gain exposure.
Born to be Famous
Unbeknown to most, Blake was actually born into fame. She was cast in her first film at the tender age of 11, called Sandman which was directed by non other than her famous father Ernie Lively. But it was in 2005’s The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants where she really gained recognition and all that followed was stardom for this golden girl.
Since then Blake Lively has become a household name. She is married to her hunky Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds and they have a beautiful one year old daughter named James. This power couple has a net worth of many millions of dollars and are two of the most in demand actors at the moment.
Have a look at their Instagram and Twitter accounts as they chronicle their life as a family, which includes a lot of fun, silly moments as they struggle to find their feet as parents. It’s a refreshing look at how some celebrities really live and sometimes, it’s not all that different to us.
The Multi Talented Blake Lively
Before she found fame on the silver screen Blake was a model, at 5ft 10 with stunning looks it was an obvious career choice. She wasn’t particularly interested in acting until her family persuaded her to get into the industry.
Although it was her brother Eric that got her the audition for The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Blake’s performance as Bridget Vreeland was so good she bagged herself a Teen Choice Award for ”Breakout Performance” in 2005 and so began her rise to fame. In 2007 she was cast in Gossip Girl where she began earning her personal fortune. She was paid $60 000 per episode and the show ran for six seasons.
She started a website in 2013 called Preserve which showcased one of a kind artisan creations. Unfortunately it was deemed a failure with sky-high prices and unnecessarily lavish items. They included a $95 Porter Cycling wooden crate, a crystal bowl for $450, $140 Butcher’s Apron, a $110 Bistro Apron and $10 artisan salt. The website was closed after only 13 months.
Seems an odd additional career choice for Lively as she isn’t known as a big spender or particularly extravagant. In response to the shut down she said “We launched the site before it was ready, and it never caught up to its original mission: It’s not making a difference in people’s lives, whether superficially or in a meaningful way” She handled the situation very gracefully and hinted that she would try her hand at it again in the future.
Modelling, Movies and Money
The Blake Lively net worth really started accumulating on the silver screen in Gossip Girl, in one year she was paid over $1.4 million for a season. She went on to star in motion pictures such as The Town in 2010, Green Lantern in 2011, Oliver Stone’s Savages in 2012 and most recently Age of Adeline in 2015.
Her salary has remained at six figures starting at $1,010,101 for the Town and reaching up to $2,797,203 for Age of Adeline and will steadily increase. Her total earnings from the movies mentioned is a cool $10,218,982. All credit for the impressive Blake Lively new worth goes to this stunning and talented actress who despite having connections in the industry, has earned her spot through focused and dedicated work.
Her income certainly doesn’t come from acting alone. She does a lot of modelling and endorsement deals for brands such as Chanel and Gucci, the latter who happily paid her $4 million for a perfume campaign. She is a model and brand ambassador for L’Oreal Paris featuring in ads for hair care, cosmetics and hair color. Her flawless skin and long tresses are a perfect match for the famous brand. Although L’Oreal does not release the salaries of it’s ambassadors, with a company worth a whopping $18.5 billion we can safely assume Lively has earned well into the six figures for her work.
Even though she and Ryan Reynolds are living in marital bliss with a baby daughter, none of us ever thought this insanely beautiful couple would ever be an item. When they met on set they were both with other people! Ryan was married to Scarlet Johanssen and Blake was dating Gossip Girl co star Penn Badgely. But let’s face it, there is no denying the chemistry between them in the Green Lantern. A match made in comic book heaven.
The couple have gone on to buy an idyllic country home in Bedford, New York. It is a 4,753 square foot colonial style house that boasts 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a spectacular, rolling lawn that reaches down to gorgeous reservoir.
The interior consists of a master bedroom with two dressing rooms upstairs, as well as two guest bedrooms. Downstairs has a fourth bedroom, a fireplace for those cold winter nights and a recreation room. It is a family home that few of us could only dream of and it cost them $2,3 million, an affordable and modest abode by Hollywood standards.
Blake Lively Net Worth Predictions
At the risk of stating the obvious, this accomplished young woman can only go on to make many more millions. Blake Lively has gone from sweet, teen TV starlet to a critically acclaimed actress. At only 28 years old this multi talented actress, model, mother and entrepreneur can only go on to bigger and better things.
Her talent is undeniable, her looks are incredible and her modesty is admirable. And she has a sexy, talented husband to go with it all. With hubby, Ryan Reynolds’ new movie, Deadpool earning $152.2 million at the box office this weekend, this couple has a lot to celebrate.
