Blake Lively is a beautiful and talented actress who gained stardom with the movies Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants and Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants 2. Playing Bridget, her looks and personality were so perfect for the role that she was hired despite having no credits to her name. At the time, her only onscreen role was from the 1998 movie musical Sandman, which was directed by her father. She was 11 years old when she filmed the movie.
Now a successful actress with 19 credits to her name, her next big break came with the CW television show, Gossip Girl. She played Serena, one of the leading roles. She has also starred in popular movies such as:
The Town with Ben Affleck
The Age of Adeline with Harrison Ford
Green Lantern with Ryan Reynold
Blake’s Personal Life
It was on the set of Green Lantern that she met her now husband, Ryan Reynolds. With successful careers and countless fans, the duo makes the perfect Hollywood couple. He’s hot and she’s gorgeous; what more could the media ask for?
Blake and Ryan married in 2012 after less than a year of dating. They welcomed their first child in December 2014, a daughter named James. Their second child greeted the world in September 2016. Both stars have expressed a desire for a large family.
Lively considers herself a homemaker and a cook. She has said her idol is Martha Stewart. She also enjoys decorating and designing.
Motherhood and marriage have not interfered with Blake’s career. She made four films throughout 2015 and 2016. These were:
The Age of Adeline
All I See Is You.
Throughout the years, Blake has been featured in countless magazines. She is highlighted for her film work, but also for her fashion and All-American beauty. She is constantly included in magazine rankings such as “most beautiful” or “sexiest women”.
Blake is the envy of women and the desire of men. Tall, blond and breath-taking, she possesses a confidence that is easy to admire. Simply stated, she is stunning. Most women would kill to look like her. However, we all have our insecurities, even celebrities.
Blake’s Minor Plastic Surgeries
Arguably one of the most gorgeous women on the planet, it’s difficult to believe that Blake Lively could ever be insecure about her appearance. Yet, it would appear she was previously unsatisfied with her nose and breasts.
Browsing through before and after photos, there are distinct differences in these two body parts.
Without seeing an image of her original nose, you would never guess Blake had a nose job. The rhinoplasty was so well done, and her new nose looks better than her God-given one. The rest of face stayed the same without the plastic surgery affecting her appearance in any additional way.
It is only on close inspection that you notice the change in Blake’s face. Her new nose has a narrower bridge and smaller nostrils. The change has improved her looks, which is hard to believe since she was beautiful before.
The second plastic surgery Blake underwent was for breast augmentation. Today her breasts are noticeably larger than they were in previous years. Again, her plastic surgeon did a stellar job. Her chest still looks natural and womanly.
Blake was smart in her decision to enlarge her breasts because she did not do it in an extreme way. Although you can tell they are bigger, the change is not so drastic that it would generate negative reactions or ridicule.
Plastic Surgery Mistakes
Many celebrities go under the knife and take plastic surgery too far. They end up looking completely unnatural. The change has a negative effect on their appearance instead of simply enhancing the beauty they already possess.
There are stars like Lil’ Kim or Pamela Anderson who took their breast enhancements to such an extreme that it is completely out of proportion to the rest of their bodies. The look is so foreign that it actually retracts from their natural beauty instead of adding to it.
Meg Ryan is an example of a celebrity who became addicted to plastic surgery and ruined her face. Once known as ‘America’s Sweetheart’ with her pretty face and girl-next-door vibe, Meg has transformed into a disturbing variation of herself.
Jennifer Grey is an actress who destroyed her career because of her choice to get a nose job. Famous in the 1980s for roles in Dirty Dancing and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Jennifer’s star immediately fell from the sky after she emerged from her rhinoplasty. The nose job altered her whole appearance and as a result, she found difficulty securing acting roles.
Thankfully, Blake did not make these mistakes.
Blake Lively’s plastic surgeries have garnered much discussion among her fans and others. Many wonder why a woman as beautiful as she would subject herself to the knife.
Perhaps she simply did not like her nose and the size of her breasts?
Perhaps the pressures of Hollywood played a part in her decision?
Unfortunately, we will never know her reasons for choosing to have plastic surgery. There is no doubt that actresses face immense pressure to look a certain way. They are expected to remain youthful, pretty and flawless throughout their careers.
Blake’s career is dependent on her looks. Her talent matters too, but there is no denying that actresses need to constantly look perfect. Blake is a spokesperson for L’Oréal, and therefore the beauty industry is part of her persona.
Blake has famously stated that she will sometimes do her own hair and make-up for events or awards shows. She claims to choose her own fashion and styles and does not work with a stylist. This shows self-confidence in her appearance.
With her nose and breasts, Blake wasn’t as confident. Therefore, she fixed them. Now she looks better than ever, so why should anyone place judgment? She wasn’t happy previously and now she is. There is nothing wrong with that.
Blake has never confirmed her plastic surgery procedures. In fact, she has never said anything about them. Nor does she have to. She made a personal decision regarding her appearance and does not owe anyone an explanation. It is up to her if she wants to discuss it with the public.
It’s Her Choice
In reality, these minor plastic surgery procedures have nothing to do with Blake’s career or public persona. They do not change her talent. They do not affect her ability to get movie roles. They simply make her look good.
There are people who feel these plastic surgeries were unnecessary, especially given her young age. Many feel it sets a bad example to young girls. However, it does not matter what anyone thinks.
There is nothing wrong with a woman choosing to make a change in her appearance. Blake’s plastic surgery procedures were not excessive. The changes are subtle and did not ruin her beauty. She simply made an improvement to her appearance. She enhanced her natural beauty and now is more stunning than ever.
Some will argue she looked better before. Many will say she is more gorgeous now. There will always be talk. The important thing is that Blake feels better and more confident. It is evident in the way she now carries herself.
Blake is not the first young actress to have minor plastic surgeries and she will not be the last. Many of her peers and colleagues have done the same. These may be the only two procedures Blake ever has. Or she may choose to undergo more surgeries in the future. Either way, it’s up to her.
