at . Comments

Blake Lively recently spoke openly about the influence America Ferrera has had on her young career.

These two actresses starred together in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

"She's a mother to me," Lively said. "When I decided I was going to move to New York for [Gossip Girl], she sat down with me. I knew I wanted to live on the West Side, and she said, 'No, you need to live on the East Side because of this, this and this.'

She makes lists of pros and cons about why I shouldn't get another dog. She's like 'This is why you shouldn't get one.' America's always very nurturing with me, which I appreciate very much. She's awesome!"

Ugly Betty fans sure agree.

Gossip Girl Quotes

Serena: It doesn't make sense!
Blair: Feelings never do. They get you all confused. Then they drive you around for hours before they drop you right back where you started.
