Blake Lively excited about ageing

Blake Lively is excited about getting older because she feels wiser and more experienced.

The 25-year-old actress – who is married to Ryan Reynolds – isn’t afraid of getting older and becoming more wrinkled because it will mean she has gained in life experience.

Asked whether she feared ageing, she scoffed: ”Are you kidding me? I’m really excited! The older I get, the more wise I feel, the more experiences I have, the more I travel.”

The ‘Green Lantern’ star isn’t planning to resort to cosmetic surgery to make her look younger and thinks it can often have the opposite effect.

Blake joked to the French edition of ELLE magazine: ”The problem is that women who have it don’t actually look younger! Although, I guess maybe when it’s really well done, you can’t tell… Ask me again when I’m 60, I might have changed my mind!”

The leggy blonde also cited her mother Elaine Lively has her ultimate style icon, praising her ability to dress appropriately for her age.

She said: ”Her style evolves over time. She always looks right for her age, without giving the impression of having aged.

”I’ve never even seen her blow dry her hair before a night out. I like that natural aspect, no effort, it’s very attractive: she never looks like she’s spent hours in front of the mirror and everything suits her.”
