Blake Lively and Gwyneth Paltrow are two blond bombshells with some serious acting chops, but what else do they have in common? They’re both business women!
According to US Magazine, Lively revealed on Wednesday, Sept. 25, that she will be launching her own lifestyle brand similar to Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop.
The Gossip Girl actress gushed about her endeavor in the latest issue of British Vogue, saying, “It’s something that will be launching in a few months and that I’m really, really thrilled about. The main element of it is that it’s about storytelling, and it’s about living a very one-of-a-kind, curated life, and how to achieve that. There’s nothing like it out there - it’s without a genre.”
The 26-year-old blond beauty also revealed that she’s excited to branch out to other things besides acting.
“I have so many passions outside of acting and things that I grew up being good at and that I don’t utilize when acting,” she said. “Acting was something that my family did, so I just kind of got into it by default, but there was so much that I cultivated, thinking that I wouldn't be an actor.”
E! Online reports that Lively also opened up about her return to the big screen. She’s been in a year-long hiatus of newlywed bliss and last appeared in Oliver Stone’s 2012 film, Savages.
“A lot has changed for me in the last year! I got married [to Ryan Reynolds], I finished Gossip Girl after six years, I had my first break in a while and I’ve been working on this company…it has been nice to have a separation from my show,” Lively said. “The first film I did coming out of Gossip Girl, I wanted it to be different from anything I’ve ever done but also representative of where I want to go, because now I’m in a different place.”
