Blake Lively Is Not Afraid Of Aging

  • Blake Lively’s most recent film, “The Age Of Adaline,” is about woman whose youth is perfectly preserved (see what I did there!?) forever, and Lively claims it’s made her quite evolved about aging: “People are obsessed with beauty and youth and with looking and feeling young forever. But look at a woman who is granted that: She’s trapped, because it’s tragic to be young forever…And also, having a child makes you realize that we pass on for a reason. You think, I have to go, because it makes room for you.” [AllureRefinery29]
