Hers is a family deeply rooted in show business, but that is just one of the many cool facts about the talented actress. So, in that vein, before we delve into the topic of Blake Lively’s height, weight and body measurements, let’s check a few more facts about the Gossip Girl actress.
She was born Blake Ellender Brown on August 25, 1987, to Ernie Lively (né Ernest Wilson Brown, Jr.) an actor, and Elaine a talent scout.
Though she was born into an acting family, she had dreams of her own. When she was younger, she wanted to study at Stanford University. She actually went on her first audition in a bid to appease her brother who though she was doing nothing with her life. She ended up landing her break out role in Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants.
Here’s an interesting one, Blake was such a bad ass in her audition for Sisterhood Of The Travelling Pants, that they had no choice but to hire her. Apparently, she just walked in, gave them her head shot and walked out (microphone shattered).
Blake has never been able to relate to any of the characters she has played on screen, she admitted that they are all very different from her as a person.
The actress just loves to cook and she claims that it is stemmed from her greater love for eating. Most especially she loves to bake, her husband, the very handsome Ryan Reynolds, calls their kitchen the Blakery because she is constantly in there baking.
Well here’s an interesting one for both Blake Lively and Gossip Girl fans, she has known her Gossip Girl co star, Penn Badgley since she was 11 years old.
A few of her favorite musicians are Ray Charles, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. She must have a very interesting taste in music.
She met her husband, Ryan Reynolds, on the set of Green Lantern and at the time that they started catching feelings, he was still married to Scarlett Johansson, how scandalous!
The star just loves going to Disney land, then again, who doesn’t?
Well, that’s it for today on that front, it is now time for us to delve into the topic at hand beginning with Blake Lively’s height.
Blake Lively’s Height
She is one of those people that has always been on the tall side of the height spectrum, there’s even a cute little story to back this claim up. Blake was quite the little genius and she started grade school at the age of 3, but what really helped her get her foot in was the fact that she was unusually tall for her age. She was actually admitted into school as a 6 year old.
So it’s only natural that she would grow up to be 5 feet 10 inches tall. Isn’t it evident? Well apparently not, in 2009 she has to address some speculations about her height, ‘ First of all I’m not 5 feet 2 inches, I am 5 feet 10 inches tall,’ she said. It is quite surprising that people would peg her for someone that short given the fact that it is kind of obvious that she is tall.
Still on the topic of Blake Lively’s height, the star indicated that her height has been a limiting factor when it comes to her love for high heels. Here is what she told Access Hollywood in 2012, ‘ I love really high heels, so it becomes a problem sometimes. I just feel like huge … you don’t want to feel like the man.’
Well thank God her 6 foot 2 husband makes her feel like every bit of the woman she is. Here are the names of a few notable celebrities who stand as tall as the actress. Taylor Swift, Johnny Depp, Tyra Banks and Adriana Lima all share Blake Lively’s height.

Since we first saw her on screen, the star has maintained her slim and slender form, even pregnancy and childbirth could not totally alter her rocking bod. You already know she has reached rock star status when it comes to shedding her baby weight and here is a little insight into how she takes care of business.
Blake admitted that she goes on some pretty intense diets, ‘I did no gluten and no soy, once you remove soy, you realize you’re eating no processed foods. So that’s basically what I did. No processed foods and then working out.’ For her, the most challenging part of it all was not the working out, but actually abstaining from soy.
She pointed out that though it seems easy, it is no trivial feat, as soy is a common component of almost everything, even organic food. The star presently weighs 63 kilograms.
