Now that Blake Lively, 27, is a loving wife to Hollywood hunk Ryan Reynolds, 38, and a proud mother to their new baby girl, many forget that the former Gossip Girl had another celebrity relationship.
It seems Lively gets quite close to her co-workers as she co-starred in 2011’s The Green Lantern with Reynolds before the two became an item and in 2007 she was enjoying more than just the fame and success of Gossip Girl with her on-screen love interest played by Penn Badgley.
The two dated for three years before splitting in 2010, but of course they still had to work on the same set together resulting in Lively being Badgley’s both best and worst on-screen kiss and on Wednesday’s Watch What Happens Live the 28-year old explained how she got both honors:
“It’s hard to say, on-screen kisses are not really that real. I’d say best, I’ll say it was Blake because we actually had a relationship at the time. And the worst? Maybe Blake, after we broke up.”
Sounds awkward right? Well Badgley said they didn’t let their personal lives affect their character’s on-screen chemistry, “We were constantly professional to be honest. And I think we should both pat ourselves on the back for getting through that, because anything is complicated in that way and we handled it.”
