Blake Lively on beauty, kids & more

#1/10: On her striking figure
#1/10: On her striking figure
Blake Lively is quite the striking figure, thanks to her height and blond hair. However, it makes her uncomfortable sometimes. "I feel like a tranny a lot of the time," she told Allure in 2011. "I don't know, I'm... large? They put me in 6-inch heels, and I tower over every man. I've got this long hair and lots of clothes and makeup on. I feel like a man sometimes."

Lively may not have a stylist, but she is able to call up designers like Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld and Christian Louboutin for their opinion whenever she wants. "When I'm going to an event, I'll send Christian a picture of my outfit and say, 'What shoes do you think I should wear with this?'" she said. Jealous.

Ryan Reynolds better be ready: Lively also told Allure that she wants a bunch of little Ryans and Blakes running around. "I've always wanted a big family," Link text. "Oh, I'd love 30 [children] if I could."
#4/10: On her very few boyfriends

Lively wasn't a prolific dater before Reynolds, though. She famously dated her Gossip Girl co-star, Penn Badgley, for several years — and she only had a few boyfriends before that. "I've had four boyfriends in my whole life. I've never been with anyone that's not a boyfriend. I didn't have a boyfriend until I was 17," she told Elle in 2012.

Lively always looks flawless, but it's not thanks to a stylist. "My assistant will call fashion houses for me, but I always pick the outfit, shoes, jewelry, and a lot of times I do my own hair and makeup for events. Sometimes I think, God, why do I do this to myself? It's so much extra work!" she told Marie Claire.

New Orleans also brought out her love for baking. "We were working a lot, but I still managed to bake an unbelievable amount of treats quite often and eat my way through New Orleans," she added to SheKnows.

Don't mess with Lively: She knows how to shoot a gun. "I went to the gun range and learned how to shoot a gun for the first time. It was awful," Lively told Marie Claire of learning to shoot for Savages. "I asked myself, 'Why were these things ever invented?' But I did feel good that my first three shots were straight to the heart. It's good to know — don't mess with me in a gun battle."

She might have some seriously glowing skin, but it's not because she tries. "I eat cupcakes, and I don't work out!" Lively joked at the premiere of her 2012 film Savages. "But if you ask me in 10 years, I'm going to regret answering that way now... I don't even drink water. It's terrible!"
