After ending her three-year relationship with her ‘Gossip Girl’ co-star, Penn Badgley, in 2010, Lively hooked up with Leonardo DiCaprio. Currently, she is linked to 35-year-old Canadian hunk Ryan Reynolds. Speaking about all the men in her life, Blake told Elle that, “I’ve had four boyfriends in my whole life. I’ve never been with anyone that’s not a boyfriend. If I spend time with a man, it’s because there’s somebody that I know well who has been a friend for a while.”

According to a report in New York Post’s Page Six, Lively and Reynolds were spotted looking for a $4.5 million apartment in Manhattan. The couple, who met on the set of the ‘Green Lantern’, has allegedly been dating since October 2011. On the rumor saying that she and Reynolds were checking out an apartment on Fifth Avenue, the actress says that, “Newspapers say a lot of stuff, don’t they? Though I wish I could afford half the places that I hear I’m looking at. Sign me up!”

In the interview, the lovely actress also opens up about having kids and confesses that she hopes to have girls. “I hope to have a few girls one day. If not girls, they better be trannies. Because I have some amazing shoes and bags and stories that need to be appreciated,” Blake says.

Lively, who is regarded by numerous people as a style inspiration, has admitted that she doesn’t have a stylist. The actress has frequently confessed that she loves to play dress up. Blake considers fashion as being a real challenge and it seems that she chooses her clothes based on the basic idea of what best flatters her figure. “When I’m going to an event, I’ll send Christian (Louboutin) a picture of my outfit and say, ‘What shoes do you think I should wear with this?’,” she told Elle.
