Taylor Swift’s close relationship with Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds is known to every Swiftie. Their friendship is what inspires her music. In her 2020 album, Folklore, Taylor Swift references Lively’s daughters in the song Betty. The actress was not offended. So at what point did the two become friends? When did they start dating?
Who Is Blake Lively?
Blake Lively is an American actress who shot to stardom in 2005 with the blockbuster “chick flick” The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Her most famous role came two years later on the CW’s hit teen drama Gossip Girl. Lively has appeared in films such as A Simple Favor, The Age of Adaline, and The Shallows since Gossip Girl ended in 2012. Reynolds is her husband.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds hosted Taylor Swift’s party during the 2017 Grammy Awards. Unfortunately, Andrea Swift did not attend this soiree, held at their home in Westchester County, NY. Her health issues or other commitments may have prevented her from attending this star-studded event.
Are Taylor Swift friends with Blake Lively?
I think the answer is YES! Despite what others may believe, they both value their relationship tremendously, which has only strengthened over time!
There’s no secret anymore about their friendship. It speaks volumes about how much they care for each other that they are close enough to host each other’s parties. Although Andrea Swift’s absence at various social gatherings has been a subject of speculation among fans, we can conclude that these women make an enviable friend circle that includes the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Gigi Hadid, etc.
Despite becoming friends, there were rumors that Swift and Lively had a feud. Blake Lively didn’t directly address these rumors, but she did mention being aware of them once or twice. When asked if they were fighting during her 2017 interview with Glamour Magazine, she replied:
“Well, I had read things [online], and it was like “Okay.” But no one ever speaks to me personally.”
People even say that she doesn’t understand why people say such things! But, I guess both women have a great deal of fun with each other. Even songs on Swift’s albums discuss how hard it is not to have friends when you’re a celebrity because everyone wants you for their gain.
Their relationship has grown closer in recent years. Even though they might not be seen together, the pictures of them hanging out on social media are more than enough to prove that they hang out together! Despite this, they maintain that despite not being visible on social media, they are in a close-knit relationship behind all the fame and glamour.
