Blake Lively on Taking a Break from Acting: Having a Personal Life Has Been Nice

Blake Lively gets an extreme close up for this Elle magazine’s April 2014 feature.

Here’s what the 26-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On taking a hiatus from acting after Gossip Girl: “Having a personal life has been really nice. I’d been on Gossip Girl 10 months a year for six years, shooting 15-hour days, so I hadn’t had time to just be since I graduated from high school. It’s been nice to kind of settle into my own skin and work on things I really love.”

On her personal style: “The older I get, I guess I wear less sparkles. And I know that someday my knees are going to look like elephant knees. But for now, my hemlines are still pretty high.”
