Blake Lively Says Hollywood Producers Took Cleaning Up Dog Shit More Seriously Than Sexual Harassment

Did you know Harvey Weinstein got his eye poked out when he was ten years old? It took him six months to recover and he’s attributed becoming a movie producer to this incident, as he read books instead of watching TV during the six months it took him to recover. If only his parents had bought young Harvey a book called “Rape is Bad,” we might be saying the worst thing Weinstein had done was producing Air Bud.

But the sexual harassment problem doesn’t start or end with Harvey Weinstein, and in a story diving into the issue of sexual harassment in Hollywood, the L.A. Times revealed a story from Blake Lively that encapsulates the issue better than almost anything I can think of.

In an exclusive interview with The Times days after the Weinstein scandal broke, actress Blake Lively recounted being regularly harassed by a makeup artist with whom she was working. “He was saying things inappropriately, insisting on putting my lipstick on with his finger,” she said. “I was sleeping one night on location and I woke up and he was filming me. I was clothed, but it was a very voyeuristic, terrifying thing to do.”

Lively reported the issue to the project’s producers but she said nothing was done. “Finally,” she said, “after three months of complaining, they called me into my trailer and said, ‘We need to talk to you.’ I thought, ‘Well finally, they’re going to do something about this man who I had to have touching me all day.’ And they said, ‘Your dog left a poop behind the toilet in your dressing room and our janitor had to pick it up. And this is very serious and we can’t have this happen again.’ ”

Finally, Lively took the harassment issue to her lawyer. An investigation was conducted, and the makeup artist was removed from the project. Still, Lively said, “Our unit production manager wrote him a letter of recommendation because nobody wanted there to be bad blood.”

This guy is just a makeup artist, not a studio head or an executive or a director… a makeup artist. Makeup and costuming are important, but this is not a particularly powerful position. Seriously, think of the name of your favorite makeup artist. Yeah, I’ll bet every single one of you thought of the same name, and that name was “Uhhh… the guy who…”

A janitor having to clean up after an actress’s dog is a serious issue, but a makeup artist filming a sleeping actress and harassing her for three months is no big deal. This is why the Harvey Weinstein story took so long to break, Hollywood literally treats women with less respect than dog shit.

Blake Lively Used to Send Leonard DiCaprio Pictures of Her Doll, a Not-Crazy Thing Normal People Do

One of my favorite things about celebrities is that there’s always going to be one or two weird quirks about them that are going to slip out in some interview. I mean, everyone has weird quirks, but it’s always nice to remember that celebrities are also normal, weird people at heart. Like apparently Blake Lively used to take pictures of a doll and send them to Leonardo DiCaprio when they were dating.

DiCaprio, the Titanic star who later became an actor, and Lively, of Gossip Girl fame, dated for about four months before they split and Lively started dating her Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds, her current husband. Apparently during this time Lively thought to herself that taking pictures of a doll would be a good idea, at least according to this Vanity Fair retrospective on Gossip Girl’s 10th anniversary.

“We learned a lot from Blake,” Safran [executive producer Joshua Safran] said. “When I think about shooting the L.A. episodes, Blake was dating at the time, and she had this thing where she had a doll that she took photos of that she sent to Leo. Blake was way ahead of the curve. It was pre-Instagram. She was documenting her life in photographs in a way that people were not yet doing.”

Do people just post pictures of dolls to Instagram? Have I missed an entire subculture of doll photo enthusiasts? Is this a normal thing and I’m the weird one for not taking pictures of dolls?

The real question, to me, is just what is this doll? Here’s a theory from Twitter:

It’s probably not this one, right?

Over at Jezebel, Hazel Cills thinks Lively probably took pictures of a Carol Farris Barbie, the character she played in Green Lantern.

Okay but back to this doll. Even though I’d be god damn delighted to learn Lively carries around some porcelain, Victorian doll that scared everyone on set to death, my personal theory is more boring. Green Lantern came out in 2011, the same time Lively and DiCaprio were dating, and during that time Lively received a Barbie doll based on her character Carol Ferris.

Whatever the doll may have been, I think it’s safe to say Ryan Reynolds would be a lot more amused by this than Leo, whose embarrassing quirk is vaping during sex. Honestly, I think I’d rather have the doll pictures.

Salma Hayek Threatens Blake Lively’s Job With Her Cooking And Parenting Skills

Salma Hayek is officially the coolest grandma/aunt ever. She recently stopped by the house of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds for a fun night with friends and ended up cooking dinner and taking care of little Inez.

Alright, so the guest should never have to cook dinner, but isn’t guests babysitting sort of the point of guys? I know that when my friends who have a kid invite me over, they don’t really care to see me or not. What they’re honestly saying is, “come play with our kid for a couple of hours so we can sleep on the couch.” I get it. Salma Hayek has a lot of friends with kids. She’s a mother herself. I’m sure she gets it as well. She knew what she was getting herself into when accepted the invitation.

Still, the cooking is a bit much. What were you doing all day, Blake? You know a guest is coming over. At least pickup Chinese so she doesn’t have to cook for you.

My favorite part is Ryan Reynolds in the background looking more excited than on his two wedding days. And this dude married Blake Lively and Scarlett Johansson.

I’m not saying Blake Lively’s marriage is in trouble, but between getting dragged to Taylor Swift’s Fourth of July party and this photo, Blake needs to step her game up and cook for her man every once and a while.

I can’t have these two going the way of Anna Faris and Chris Pratt. My heart won’t allow it.

If you want more of Reynolds and Hayek acting adorable, make sure to check out their upcoming movie Hitman’s Bodyguard. It looks pretty mediocre based on the trailer, but Samuel L. Jackson is in it so at least you know that it’ll be loud and somewhat entertaining.

Blake Lively Hides Her Body in Ribbons

I don’t know what to call this dress. There are a bunch of drapes-looking things on the top that hide what is probably an amazing mom bod. Blake Lively walked the red carpet in it at this years’ People’s Choice Awards.

Lively received the award for “Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress” in The Shallows. Uhh, ok, the people have spoken I suppose.

She accepted the award and used her speech to thank the Spice Girls.

So I was always an ambitious kid, so I set a goal for myself as a kid and I knew if I could accomplish this that I would be successful and I would be happy—and that was to meet the Spice Girls. Still haven’t accomplished it; it was very ambitious. No, but what was so neat about that is that they’re all so distinctly different and they were women and they owned who they were, and that was my first introduction into girl power.

Girl power you say. She went on to say:

And I’m watching this movie, and the women nominated in this category, and when you guys voted for this, you didn’t just vote for this movie or me, you voted for girl power. And so thank you. Thank you for — it’s true! And men voted for girl power too, and you guys are awesome for doing that.

Haven’t seen this movie but IMDB says it’s about a surfer stranded 200 yards from the shore, encircled by sharks and she has to use her ingenuity to get back to shore. My guess is she makes it? But I could be wrong.

If this is girl power, fine. If the Spice Girls inspired her and The Shallows inspires other girls in the next generation, then it’s worth it. Although, it’d be funny if she was trapped by sharks, flailed around helplessly and Zac Efron had to swim out to save her. “See what happens when you leave the kitchen???”

Taylor Swift Borrowed Ryan Reynolds’ ACTUAL Deadpool Costume For Halloween With Her Squad!

Talk about a SUPER squad!

Dressing as the Merc with a Mouth would be cool enough, but Taylor Swift actually got her hands on a REAL version of the superhero's outfit thanks to the movie's star, Ryan Reynolds!

As you probably know, Ry and his wife Blake Lively are pretty close with Swift, so it's no surprise that the hot AF actor leant a hand to the Blank Space singer. Let's be real, no one's saying "no" to Taylor!

The 26-year-old spent her Hallows Eve with friends and squad members -- including Gigi Hadid who went as a Cub Scout, Kennedy Rayé who donned a cat suit, Martha Hunt dressed as Marcia Brady from The Brady Bunch, Camila Cabello a grandma looking for her cat, and Lily Donaldson was a space cadet!

The blonde beauty also posted another pic with her girls, saying:

Miz Swift didn't forget to thank Reynolds though, as she posted one more snap:

Martha also felt the need to get in on the gramming fun as she shared:

Halloween never dies 📸@emmiegundlerA photo posted by Martha Hunt (@marthahunt) on Oct 31, 2016 at 8:26pm PDT

Though Ryan didn't chime in on social media yet regarding lending Swift his costume, one eagle eyed fan noticed Lively commented on the Grammy winner's look saying:

If we had to choose between Tay and Ryan, we're pretty sure our heads would explode! LOLz!

We can only hope that Reynolds wants to dress up as Swift one day.

What do YOU think of Taylor's costume??

Blake Lively is a new mom and a true friend.

The A-lister stepped out to support a close pal just two days after it was announced she’d welcomed her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds.

Lively posted the pic of her friend’s big day on Instagram Sunday, captioning the shot: “Most beautiful bride on the planet. And the best friend I could ask for. @jessicarose617 thank you for being EVERYTHING. I love you.”

Lively, 29, and Reynolds, 39, said hello to their newborn in New York City earlier this week, thought no further details – including the baby’s sex and name – were announced at the time.

The couple’s latest little bundle of joy joins the pair’s first child, daughter James, 22 months.

Both Reynolds and Lively come from big families and have shared their hopes for a big family of their own.

Lively joked on the Today show in June: “I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders.”

And baby makes four for Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds!

The actors have welcomed their second child, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

Lively gave birth in New York. No further details — including the baby’s sex and name — are known. Reps for the couple could not be reached for comment.

The new addition joins big sister James, 22 months.

A source close to Lively, 29, confirmed to PEOPLE in April that she and Reynolds, 39, were expecting baby number two.

The Gossip Girl alum made her baby-bump debut at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival in May, when she stepped out for the premiere of her film Café Society — whose New York City premiere she also attended in July, outfitting her growing bump in a beautiful gray and pink dress.

In fact, Lively was quite the maternity style maven to watch throughout her second pregnancy, from her numerous fit-for-royalty gowns at Cannes to the premieres for her summer films, including her survival thriller The Shallows.

Both Reynolds and Lively come from big families and have shared their hopes for a big family.

“I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders,” Lively joked on the Today show in June. “You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children.”

The actress also told Marie Claire earlier that month that she wants to give her kids a “nice, normal upbringing.”

“We don’t ever want to rob them of what we had because then we’d feel really selfish,” she said, adding that, “All my eggs are in one basket, and that’s my family.”

Deadpool star Reynolds is no doubt excited to be a second-time dad.

“I don’t have to prepare to be wrapped around my daughter‘s finger,” the former Sexiest Man Alive told PEOPLE of James for a February cover story. “I have been wrapped around her little finger since the day she plopped out into this world.”

And regardless of whether the couple’s second child had been a boy or a girl, the new dad of two — who has three older brothers — would have been equally overjoyed.

“I would love to have a little boy at some point, but I would not be an unhappy man if I had a six-person soccer team of girls,” he joked to PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly Editorial Director Jess Cagle in April.

Ryan Reynolds on Blake Lively’s Second Pregnancy: I ‘Played a Little Lionel Richie, and the Mood Hit!’

It sounds like Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively can thank their “Endless Love” for Baby No. 2.

“Yeah, ya know, [I] just played a little Lionel Richie, and the mood hit!” Reynolds told PEOPLE Tuesday at Eddie Bauer and American Forests’ The One Tree initiative and #Hug2Give campaign launch, quipping of the conception of his and wife Lively’s second baby.

All jokes aside, the movie star, 39, partnered with the clothing brand and environmental organization to implement his passion for earth — one that he shares with Lively, 29, and their 20-month-old daughter James.

“I’m a big outdoorsman. My relationship with the outdoors is a long, storied one and something I value greatly,” Reynolds tells PEOPLE exclusively. “I love doing it with my family. I take my daughter with me all the time on hikes. My wife is just extraordinarily pregnant, so there’s not a lot of hiking going on, which I’m told is my fault!”

While his expectant wife’s growing baby belly might keep her from from the great outdoors for the time being, Reynolds still has an adorable hiking partner.

“I take my daughter out all the time. I live upstate New York, as well, so I’m able to get out there, and it’s all just the backyard and the forests,” says the British Columbia, Canada, native, who grew up with an a keen appreciation for nature.

And now that he has kids of his own, Reynolds’ perspective on preservation advocacy has only grown more fervent.

“I like to think that this movement is galvanized enough that we can actually turn back the clock on some of the damage we’ve done and really create a space in the world that our kids can enjoy and experience what we experienced when we were young, their age,” he says. “I think about it all the time: Is my daughter going to have the same opportunities I had as a kid? And I hope that’s gonna be true. So I’m doing my part, big and small, to see that that happens.”

And Reynolds sees speaking out about The One Tree as doing his part: Each time someone posts a photo of themselves hugging a tree on social media with the hashtag #Hug2Give, Eddie Bauer will donate $50 American Forests to contribute toward the nonprofit’s conservation efforts.

Ryan Reynolds Surprises Blake Lively with a Baby Shower – and Taylor Swift Made the Guest List

Blake Lively is getting ready for baby number two with the help of Aunties Taylor and Emily!

Taylor Swift and Emily Blunt were among the guests at a private baby shower held for The Shallows star over the weekend, a source confirms to PEOPLE. And what makes it even better is that Lively’s husband Ryan Reynolds put it all together!

“Ryan orchestrated it all – Blake was so surprised!” an onlooker tells PEOPLE, adding that the actor dropped her off and picked her up. “It was a wonderful day — the weather was perfect and Blake was super happy to celebrate with her girlfriends.”

The three-hour celebration was held at the Bedford Post Inn in upstate New York on Saturday. Following the shower — which featured a hot chocolate bar — a few guests continued the celebration at Reynolds and Lively’s home, E! News reports.

Just a couple days earlier, Swift wished the 29-year-old expectant mother a happy birthday on Instagram with an adorable photo of the pals are cuddling with a koala.

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY BLAKE! You’re a wonderful friend, to humans and koalas alike. I absolutely love you,” she captioned the cute snap.

Lively, who announced she was expecting her second child in April, is happy to be expanding her family — and the Reynolds brood likely isn’t done growing.

“I’m one of five kids. My husband is one of four, so we’re officially breeders,” the actress told Today earlier this summer. “You can go on our website and we will give you some of our children.”

The couple are parents to 20-month-old daughter James.

Taylor Swift: Does Her Squad Hate Tom Hiddleston?!

Obviously, Taylor Swift is best known as a multi-platinum recording artist, lover of cats, and living testament to the power of hair straightening.

But when it comes to the gossip about her personal life, there are two types of Taylor conversations:

Haters Are Gonna Hate

The first and most obvious has to do with Taylor's romantic relationships with famous men.

The other has to do with Taylor's squad, or "#Squad" as it's sometimes known.

Now, it looks like those two conversations may become one, as Swift's highly-publicized relationship with Tom Hiddleston has attracted the ire of some key squad members

In case you're somehow unaware, the squad is an A-list chick clique comprised of Taylor's scores of famous friends.

As the "Bad Blood" music video demonstrated, they will straight up murder your ass if you mess with Queen Tay.

We're speaking figuratively, of course, but we wouldn't put it past them to actually straight up whack someone like the guy who told Joe Pesci to got get his shinebox in Goodfellas.

All of this is to say that it's not a good time to be Tom Hiddleston.

According to Star magazine Karlie Kloss, Blake Lively, Gigi Hadid and Ruby Rose have all unfollowed Tom on Twitter, which is the 2016 equivalent of leaving a severed horse head in someone's bed.

(Okay, we promise that's the end of the mob movie analogies.)

Surprisingly, the anti-Hiddles uprising was reportedly initiated by Taylor's brother, Austin, who has shown himself to be intensely protective of the singer in the past.

Sources tell Star that the reason Taylor's inner circle is so anti-Tom is that they believe his romantic intentions aren't pure and that he's using her in the most callous way.

But apparently, they don't suspect him of using her to boost his career as so many others have suggested.

Instead, they think Tom is dating Taylor as an elaborate act of revenge.

Hiddleston dated Ashley Olsen for a brief period last year, and the squad reportedly believes he's pretending to be head-over-heels with Taylor in order to make her jealous.

Swift is said to be totally unaware of the con:

“Tom’s charming and he knows exactly how to work Taylor,” a source tells the tabloid.

“They could very well be on to something.”

Or maybe they just really hated Loki in all those Marvel movies. 

The world may never know!

Blake Lively Calls Out Post-Baby Body Shamers: ‘It’s So Unfair’

Blake Lively does not care to know what you think of a woman’s body after giving birth.

During an appearance on Australian morning show Sunrise Lively, 28, tackled the issue after the interviewer complimented her bikini-ready body in her latest movie The Shallows — filmed months after Lively welcomed her first child, daughter James, now 19 months old.

Rocke/Turgeon/Splash News Online

“It’s so unfair though, because it’s so celebrated,” the pregnant actress said. “It’s like, this is what someone can look like after a baby. I think a woman’s body after having a baby is pretty amazing.”

Lively continued, explaining that new moms shouldn’t feel the pressure to immediately bounce back to their pre-baby body, because they’ve just created life.

“You don’t need to be Victoria’s Secret ready right away because you just did the most incredible miracle that life has to offer,” Lively added. “I mean you gave birth to a human being! So I would really like to see that celebrated.”

In April, a source close to the actress confirmed that she was expecting her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds.

“Blake is absolutely thrilled and so is Ryan,” the source added.

Nearly a month later Lively debuted her baby bump at the red carpet premiere of her new movie Café Society during the Cannes Film Festival.

Pregnant Blake Lively Ditches Her Heels (and Treats Herself to a Milkshake) After Glam Event

Milkshakes and comfortable shoes make Blake Lively a very happy woman!

The actress – who has spoken about embracing her maternity style while pregnant – looked radiant as ever at the launch event for Target’s Cat and Jack clothing line in New York on Thursday night — but it seems Lively couldn’t wait to ditch her high heels after the event.

“Milkshake: check. Comfortable shoes: check. Having a slit in your dress to make you feel better about the aforementioned: check,” she captioned an Instagram photo of herself holding a milkshake in a slightly altered version of the floral outfit she donned at the event.

The 28-year-old expectant star wore a flower-printed, wrap-around dress with a matching floral-printed purse and a pair of heels to the soirée. But in the Instagram photo, Lively opted for a pair of Converse sneakers with the dress.

Last month, Lively spoke to PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle about dressing up while pregnant.

“It’s fun to dress up in a big sparkly number and a Cinderella-looking dress,” the actress said.

“I came home to my baby [18-month-old daughter James] and she was like, ‘Wow.’ You know, because you just look like a Disney movie,” Lively added. “It’s fun to get to do that. Because when you’re a little girl you play dress-up, and now I get to do it in big-girl life too.

Blake Lively on Being Pregnant During the Summer: ‘I’m Going to Make My Water Break Just So I Can Cool Down’

As if being pregnant doesn’t already put enough strain on your body, try doing it during the dog days of summer!

Blake Lively, who is expecting her second child later this year, knows this discomfort all too well. She opened up to Jimmy Fallon on Friday about what it’s like to carry a baby in the sweltering July heat.

“It should be illegal to be pregnant in New York in July,” she said during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. “I swear, I’m going to make my water break just so I can cool down.”

But, Lively added, she’s had to keep her struggles to herself.

“Everybody says, ‘How are you feeling?’ but they don’t really want to hear how you’re feeling,” the 28-year-old said. “They don’t want to sit there while you complain.”

The actress also revealed that James, her 19-month-old daughter with husband Ryan Reynolds, has quite the colorful vocabulary.

“She says ‘shump’ for jump, ‘shtand’ for stand and if she wants to sit down, it’s ‘s—,’ ” Lively shared. “But I will take that any day over when we take her to the park and we take off her socks — for some reason she doesn’t have her ‘sh’ for socks, she has a ‘c’ for socks…”

Lively joked: “It’s like I have Amy Schumer as a daughter, minus the immense talent!”

Blake Lively Calls Second Pregnancy ‘Much, Much Easier’ and ‘a Lot Faster’

They say pregnancy is better the second time around – and for Blake Lively, that appears to be true!

The 28-year-old actress told Kelly Ripa on Live with Kelly, Wednesday, that she’s having a “much, much easier” pregnancy, while expecting baby number two with husband Ryan Reynolds.

“It’s a lot faster,” she said, joking, “You get bigger faster, too, which has been nice to try to fit into clothing strategically.”

The fashion-forward blonde, who looked relaxed in a boho-chic maxi dress, added, “I’m usually home in pajamas all the time,” she said. “I feel good. I feel fancy.”

She also shared an adorable story about 19-month-old daughter, James — who appears to be a big fan of Ripa.

“My baby thinks that you and my dad starred in a video together,” Lively explained. “Because she’s obsessed with Elmo’s World – and you’re Postal Kelly, which is a huge deal in our house.”

Ripa appeared in a 2010 holiday special of the popular children’s series, alongside Santa Claus himself – whom James thinks looks a lot like her grandfather, a.k.a. Lively’s father.

“Every time she sees Santa Claus, she goes ‘Pappy?’ ” The Shallows star continued, joking, “Because they … don’t have similar body types … ”

Thinking Pink! Pregnant Blake Lively Steps Out Wearing Fitted Coral Dress – Complete with Cut-Outs

Blake Lively is just peachy!

The blonde bombshell, who is currently starring in the summer thriller The Shallows and expecting her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds, made an appearance on the streets of New York City’s SoHo neighborhood Tuesday.

And though the actress’ pregnancy style is always on point, she’s also known for putting her own unique spin on her outfits and still looking flawless. Proof was in the Jonathan Simkhai fitted, sheer coral-colored embroidered dress she wore, complete with a scalloped trim. She also accessorized with Anita Ko earrings, and shoes by Sophia Webster.

But perhaps the most interesting part of Lively’s ensemble was the Christian Louboutin Paloma handbag she carried, embellished with tchotchke charms fit for the most ’90s of girls.

Lively, 28, is famous for her choice in maternity attire — which, during her second pregnancy, has ranged from the most Cinderella-worthy to simple and chic. But the truth is she doesn’t consider herself to be that different from the average person in terms of her look.

RELATED VIDEO: Blake Lively May Have Won Everything With This Flashback 

“Everybody in the world does all their own styling. They wake up in the morning and put their own clothes on themselves. It’s not that different,” she told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle in June.

Lively also admitted that she does have a lot of help that she’s grateful for, and that being pregnant poses an exciting challenge in her wardrobe considerations.

“There are lots of variables these days, but [it’s] fun to dress [under] the circumstances,” she added.

The stylish Gossip Girl alum and Reynolds, 39, are already parents to 19-month-old daughter James.

Tom Hiddleston Is Wearing A Very Taylor Swift-Themed T-Shirt At Her Fourth Of July Party, And Twitter Is NOT Loving It

OK, this is pretty cringeworthy.

Taylor Swift is hosting her annual Fourth of July bash this weekend, with all kinds of celebs -- Blake Lively, Ryan Reynolds, Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, and SO many more -- surrounding, but Tom Hiddleston is stealing the show.

Photos: Celeb Couples Who Moved Too Quickly!

Hiddleswift went a bit overboard on Sunday when Tom was captured on camera wearing an "I Heart T.S." muscle t-shirt on the beach with Tay Tay.

Ch-ch-check out the pics (below)!!!

Also, a shirt in the ocean?! Come on, Thor!!!

Regardless, the Internet was NOT feeling that -- and Twitter absolutely let Tom have it for this weird little 12-year-old move.

Ch-ch-check out some of the most brutal tweets (below):

Ouch!!

But seriously, man, what are you thinking with that shirt??

A pregnant Blake Lively and husband Ryan Reynolds were caught locking lips as they splashed in the water near Swift’s Rhode Island home over the weekend. The Shallows star wrapped her legs and arms around Reynolds, 39, who lifted her out of the water for a kiss.

Lively, 28, displayed her growing baby bump in a red, white and blue triangle bikini. Reynolds also showed some patriotic pride in striped swim shorts.

Blake Lively Has the Ultimate Burger Hack You Need to Know

Lively is expecting her second child with Reynolds. The couple are already parents to 18-month-old daughter James.

“Having a daughter was a dream come true for me,” Reynolds told PEOPLE in February. “I never admitted it out loud, to myself or my wife, but I really wanted a little girl.”

Pregnant Blake Lively Dishes on Staying Fashionable: ‘It’s Fun to Dress Under the Circumstances’

Blake Lively obviously isn’t letting pregnancy affect her style sense in a negative way — in fact, she’s completely embracing it, as evidenced by her head-turning recent ensembles at Cannes.

“It’s fun to dress up in a big sparkly number and a Cinderella-looking dress,” the 28-year-old expectant star of the thriller The Shallows told PEOPLE and Entertainment Weekly editorial director Jess Cagle exclusively for The Jess Cagle Interview video series.

“I came home to my baby [18-month-old daughter James] and she was like, ‘Wow.’ You know, because you just look like a Disney movie,” Lively says. “It’s fun to get to do that. Because when you’re a little girl you play dress-up, and now I get to do it in big-girl life too.

“There are lots of variables these days, but [it’s] fun to dress [under] the circumstances,” she adds with a laugh.

Cagle also compliments the actress on being “the most beautiful person on Earth,” which she replies to graciously with a laugh.

“You should see me when I wake up!” she jokes, humbly attributing her put-together facade to those who spend time “making [her] look cute.”

“But this is not real life. I don’t normally wear feather numbers with cashmere sweatshirts,” she continues, admitting that while her experience with being seen as a style icon is “nerve-wracking and weird,” she won’t pretend she doesn’t feel lucky and that it isn’t ridiculously fun too.

Cagle mentions that the former Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star and wife of Ryan Reynolds does all of her own styling, which she confirms but confesses she doesn’t understand why it’s seen as such a big deal.

“Everybody in the world does all their own styling. They wake up in the morning and put their own clothes on themselves. It’s not that different,” she notes, adding that since she’s lucky to have access to a ton of great designers — something she thinks gives her an advantage — what she does is “way less impressive” than it might seem.

Maternity Maven Blake Lively Is Now Pairing Sweats with Couture – and Still Looks Incredible

Comfort and couture may sound like an unlikely pairing, but Blake Lively has managed to find the perfect balance as she gets further into her second pregnancy.

The always-fashionable actress has solidified herself as a maternity wear pro, first gliding around the Cannes red carpet in dreamy gowns, and, now, taking on New York City in sweats and chiffon.

Stepping out in the city while doing press for The Shallows on Tuesday, Lively wore a flashy, white feathered dress, which featured a sequin-covered bust. Her accessories included a pair of sky-high silver pumps and, surprisingly, a hooded zip-up sweatshirt.

The relaxed outerwear choice comes just one day after Lively paired a Madewell denim jacket with Jenny Packham’s Runway Look #34 gown in Lime Fizz.

“I mean, it’s not a gooooown if there’s denim over it. Right?!?” the 28-year-old joked on Instagram.

Lively even bravely enjoyed what looked like a messy sweet treat in the look – a mid-afternoon snack she documented on Instagram.

The actress and husband Ryan Reynolds are already parents to James, 18 months, and are looking forward to growing their family even more.

Lively, who is mom to 18-month-old daughter James and another baby on the way, said life with her baby girl keeps her on her toes.

“She’s always doing something fun and exciting,” she said. “She’s the most fun, funny human being I’ve ever been around in my life.”

Earlier this month, the 28-year-old told Marie Claire that she hopes to give her children a “normal upbringing” — much like Reynolds.

“We don’t ever want to rob them of what we had because then we’d feel really selfish,” she explained.

Of her little brood, she explained, “All my eggs are in one basket, and that’s my family. That’s where my heart is.”

“That’s where my everything is. My family: That’s the thing that I feel most protective of and the thing that I feel is the most exposed when I feel exploited.”

Blake Lively Stuns In Cannes Wearing Printed Maxi Dress as She Continues to Camouflage Baby Bump

Pregnant where?!

Blake Lively, who’s expecting her second child, stunned as she stepped out at the Cannes Film Festival for the screening of her newest film Café Society on Tuesday.

“#Cannes2016 fashion inspo day 1: Esmaralda,” Lively, 28, captioned a photo of herself on Instagram.

The actress — who arrived in France on Monday, hiding her baby bump with a white trench coat — poses in the pic as she gets ready for her outing, wearing a maxi dress, which merely hints at a baby bump, but shows off her shoulders by way of cutouts. The patterned ensemble also features a low v-neck, long sleeves and pearl details.

Sweeping her hair to the side, Lively wore her blonde locks in cascading soft waves.

A source close to the expectant mother confirmed her pregnancy to PEOPLE in April. Although reps for Lively and her husband Ryan Reynolds, 39, had no comment on the news, the source added that “Blake is absolutely thrilled and so is Ryan.”

While the couple was mum about the pregnancy news, they’ve both been open about their desire to have a big family.

“I do want to just enjoy this moment,” the former Gossip Girl star told PEOPLE shortly after welcoming her first child. “But I also feel like my first child is going to be the oldest sibling to my next kid, and that may change with each and every year. I’m looking forward to how one baby influences the other, and to my family as a whole, to every single chapter.”

Blake Lively Keeps Baby Bump Under Wraps in Burberry at Met Gala

Pretty in pink!

Blake Lively, who is expecting her second child with husband Ryan Reynolds, stepped out on Monday night at the Met Gala, marking her first public appearance since a source close to Lively confirmed her pregnancy to PEOPLE.

The Age of Adaline star, 28, kept her baby bump under wraps in a blush-toned Burberry gown complete with a corset top and pleated skirt, which she paired with a hand-dyed cape featuring acrylic petals.

Despite her growing baby bump, the mom-to-be previously told PEOPLE that her maternity ensembles don’t stray too far from her signature style.

“It’s important to still feel like yourself because so much of your life is changing,” she said during her first pregnancy. “I would have felt foreign in my own body if I’d started dressing differently.”

However, despite her best efforts, Lively joked she had to make a few adjustments to accommodate her curves.

“I’m gonna amp up my style by wearing things that are stretchier,” she said. “Because that’s all that fits!”

The new baby will turn the Reynolds-Lively household into a family of four, joining big sister James, 16 months.

And while the sex of the new baby is still a mystery, it’s obvious that Reynolds will be happy no matter what — even if the baby marks the second of a long line of daughters.

“I’m just fine being surrounded by estrogen. I grew up in a house full of testosterone: I’m the youngest of four boys, and my dad was a cop, and that’s intense,” Reynolds, 39, told PEOPLE this past February for his Sexiest Dad Alive cover. “For whatever reason, I always got along great with girls. I don’t have to prepare to be wrapped around my daughter’s finger – it has happened.”

The couple has also been open about their desire for a big family. In April of last year, Lively, the youngest of five, told PEOPLE that she’s “looking forward to how one baby influences the other, and to my family as a whole, to every single chapter.”

Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively Expecting Second Child

All that laughter paid off: Blake Lively is pregnant again!

The actress and husband Ryan Reynolds are expecting their second child, a sibling for 16-month-old daughter James, a source close to the actress confirms to PEOPLE.

“Blake is absolutely thrilled and so is Ryan,” the source tells PEOPLE. A rep for both actors had no comment.

A second source close to the actress says she may make her red carpet baby-bump debut at the upcoming Met Gala on May 2.

Lively first sparked rumors of a possible pregnancy when she was photographed reshooting scenes for her upcoming film The Shallows. Dressed in a wetsuit, the mom-to-be did her best to keep her baby bump hidden behind a robe and a surfboard.

But both Lively, 28, and the Deadpool star, 39, have been open about their desire to have a big family. “I do want to just enjoy this moment,” the former Gossip Girl star told PEOPLE shortly after welcoming her baby girl.


“But I also feel like my first child is going to be the oldest sibling to the next kid, and that may change with each and every year. I’m looking forward to how one baby influences the other, and to my family as a whole, to every single chapter.”

Although the new mom told PEOPLE she didn’t feel like the birth of her firstborn was a “massive change,” Reynolds joked the sheer exhaustion from life with a newborn took some time to get used to.

“Our baby, in particular, is, we think, allergic to sleep,” he joked in March 2015.

Despite the sleepless nights, Reynolds, the youngest of four boys, couldn’t be happier to finally be the dad of a daughter.

“Having a daughter was a dream come true for me,” he told PEOPLE in February. “I never admitted it out loud, to myself or my wife, but I really wanted a little girl.”

Robyn Lively may be an 80’s icon thanks to her starring role in Teen Witch, but to Blake Lively, Robyn’s most important role is sister and aunt.

“She’s just the cutest ever,” Robyn told PEOPLE of niece James at iHeart80’s Party in Inglewood, California, on Saturday. “I’m so in love with her.”

When asked if Blake’s 14-month-old daughter had reached any milestones recently, Robyn was quick with more compliments. “[She’s] walking and talking and being adorable! She’s the best,” she shared.

Although Robyn is currently starring in Amazon’s Gortimer Gibbon’s Life on Normal Street, she was luckily able to take a trip to the east coast for some very glam family time recently.

“I was just in New York for about 10 days and it was for the Deadpool premiere,” she shared.

While the Lively sisters are “really close,” Robyn couldn’t help but rave about her Deadpool star brother-in-law Ryan Reyonlds, too. “We are so proud of Ryan,” she said. “He’s killing it and the box office is amazing. We’re so, so proud of him.”
