Blake Lively Starts a New Company Devoted to All the Things She's So Good At

Blake Lively has a super big problem, guys. See, she’s so good at so many things, and being a mere actress isn’t fulfilling enough. BUT, DON’T WORRY. Her special snowflakeness will shine through like the diamondiest snowflake diamond. Because she’s starting her own lifestyle company, her very own answer to GOOP.

“It’s something that will be launching in a few months and that I’m really, really thrilled about. The main element of it is that it’s about storytelling and it’s about living a very one-of-a-kind, curated life, and how to achieve that. There’s nothing like it out there - it’s without a genre. I have so many passions outside of acting and things that I grew up being good at and that I don’t utilise when acting. Acting was something that my family did so I just kind of got into it by default, but there was so much that I cultivated, thinking that I wouldn’t be an actor.”

Oh, I’m sorry. It’s not her answer to GOOP because there’s nothing like it out there. That’s my bad, that’s on me.

Look. I don’t want to be the one to have to tell you this. But, if you feel that you have lots of talents, like careerable talents that you can do for a living, you probably don’t. Most people have lots of things they’re pretty OK at, but in terms of actual marketable skills, you really only have so many. I pretty much have this one, and I’m sure plenty of you would argue that I’m not that good at that which is a real dick move and you’ve hurt my feelings now.

What I’m saying is if you think you’re just so good at just so many things, you know, maybe you’re not. And that is perfectly OK. But you’re definitely not good enough at whatever it is you think you’re good at to start a vague fabulousity lifestyle company, without a “genre” because that is just a blog.

Ultimately, this is all an excuse to reference your sister, the superior Lively, and say, Blake, sugar, you’re shockingly successful and married to Ryan Reynolds. Now why you wanna go and top that?
