Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively may have gotten married in 2012, but even with baby number four on the way, it seems their honeymoon phase is still ongoing. Furthermore, the couple is widely appreciated for being unfiltered and absolutely hilarious, unlike the movie that brought them together.

The Green Lantern actor won hearts when he said with all seriousness that he would take a bullet for his wife. Apart from saying nice things that would no doubt keep Blake Lively jubilant and also being the sexiest dad alive, as unanimously agreed by the majority of the Internet, there is another detail about the actor that Blake Lively is tremendously thankful for.
Blake Lively is a Tall Girl
The Gossip Girl actress’ name is one that is synonymous with elite Hollywood. And while her work in the exorbitant series Gossip Girl plays a huge role in this, it is the fact that Lively has time and again proven why she is a trusted name in Hollywood.
Through The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants, Gossip Girl, Accepted, The Private Lives of Pippa and The Shallows, and A Simple Favor in recent years, Lively has raised the standards for what it means to have a blockbuster career. Standards many cannot reach, not because they aren’t talented but simply because they aren’t tall enough.
The Accepted actress feels like a “tranny”
Lively stands at a whopping 5 feet 8 inches with no high heels or insoles attached. The actress, more often than not, gets the top view of her costar’s head. And while for many of us, her stunning long legs are a sight to marvel at, the actress has said that she struggles because of them. “I feel like a tranny a lot of the time,” the Accepted actress said in an interview with Allure in 2009.
Can I look like Blake Lively? Tall, blonde and absolutely stunning. I'm in.

She further added, “I don’t know, I’m…large? They put me in six-inch heels, and I tower over every man”. But thankfully for her, Ryan Reynolds is 6 feet and 2 inches tall.
The Gossip Girl actress who was ridiculed in her childhood days and was called a “Big Bird” has learned to accept herself.

Blake Lively is famously best friends with Antihero singer Taylor Swift who also towers above most of the things around her. The singer once wrote, “sometimes, I feel like everybody is a sexy baby, And I’m a monster on the hill,” and we are sure Blake Lively said the same!
