Ever since we first saw Blake Lively as the sporty Bridget in The Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants, there was just something so appealing about her. She's come to be most popularly known for essaying the wild child Serena Van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl but she seems to be a stark opposite from her onscreen character. Since then, her roles have grown and trends have changed but Blake Lively's appeal hasn't dimmed at all. Part of the reason that is so is because of how genuine and grounded she always seems to be.
She reveals just how true that is in her latest Instagram post. Blake posted a picture of herself wearing a rainbow printed ensemble and posing with Sesame Street's Big Bird. She captioned the picture, "Still geeking out. Kids used to make fun of me in elementary school by calling me Big Bird (because I was "too tall" and had "yellow" hair). Here's to making best buddies with the things that once hurt you"
There's another cute video of her dancing with the Sesame Street's stars like Elmo and the Cookie Monster with the caption, "Finally. I have friends."
Like many of us, it seems that Blake too faced her share of bullying because of how tall she was and the fact that she had blonde hair. Looking back, it can seem baseless but children can be cruel. Bullying happens far too often and doesn't often get a fair platform but even something as small as a thoughtful caption can be good to look back on and see how far you've come. As she rightly said, accepting things that once hurt are all a part of healthy closure.Comments
Today at 5 feet 8 inches with flaxen hair (that often makes the hairstyle trend reports), Blake Lively is nothing short of a Goddess. Apart from being an A-list icon herself, she's married to global star Ryan Reynolds with two children and never fails to indulge in playful banter with him online. It's safe to say that she made it. Blake, you've come a long way and how.
