Ask AP: ‘Gossip Girl’

Celebrity Q&A

Gossip Girl is my Monday night guilty pleasure. I really enjoy the actress who plays Serena. Does she by any chance come from a showbiz family?

—Lindsay Otto, Mount Carmel, Ill.

Blake Lively, 21, is the daughter of actor Ernie Lively, and her mother, Elaine, is a talent manager. Her two sisters, Lori and Robyn, and two brothers, Jason and Eric, all have acting credits on their resumes. In fact, it was one of her brothers who asked his agent to send her to a few auditions one summer, which resulted in the role of Bridget in the movie The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, a part she also played in the recent sequel.
