Blake Lively is not afraid to age, she looks forward to itBlake Lively is one of the most beautiful young actresses in Hollywood, and she has admitted that she is excited to age.

The 26-year-old actress still has a lot of aging to do, but she has revealed that growing older and becoming more wrinkled is not something to fear, as the lines on her face would only mean that she has lived and gained life experience.

Asked whether she feared getting older during an interview with the French edition of Elle magazine, Lively scoffed: "Are you kidding me? I'm really excited! The older I get, the more wise I feel, the more experiences I have, the more I travel."

The Gossip Girl actress, who is happily married to Ryan Reynolds, has revealed that she plans to age gracefully and will not resort to cosmetic surgery to make herself appear younger.

Lively jested with Elle, "The problem is that women who have it don't actually look younger! Although, I guess maybe when it's really well done, you can't tell... Ask me again when I'm 60, I might have changed my mind!"

Lively also credits her mother, Elaine Lively, for influencing her amazing fashion choices and praised her mom for her ability to dress age appropriately and for imparting this information upon Blake.

She spoke about her mother, saying, "Her style evolves over time. She always looks right for her age, without giving the impression of having aged."

"I've never even seen her blow dry her hair before a night out. I like that natural aspect, no effort, it's very attractive: she never looks like she's spent hours in front of the mirror and everything suits her."

It's always nice to see daughters who appreciate and admire their mothers, right?
