Happy 21st Birthday, Blake Lively!

at . Comments

We know her as Serena van der Woodsen, but Blake Christina Lively - born August 25, 1987 in Tarzana, California - is nothing like her glamourous television counterpart. The actress is as far from it as you can get!

Despite a rising career that includes a starring role in Gossip Girl, as well as The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and its sequel, Blake Lively is smart, humble, grounded and down-to-earth. And she turns 21 years old today!

Happy birthday, Blake. We <3 you. Below, the Gossip Girl Insider interns have put together a little photo tribute to the actress. Click to enlarge any of these - and follow this link for many, many more Blake Lively photos!

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

Chuck: I'm sorry for losing my temper the night you told me Louis proposed to you. I'm sorry for not waiting longer at the Empire State Building. I'm sorry for treating you like property. I'm sorry I didn't tell you I loved you when I knew I did. Most of all I'm sorry I gave up on us when you never did.
Blair: Thank you.
