Ryan and I have turned down films for fam­ily: Blake

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Hol­ly­wood ac­tor Blake Lively (right) says she and hus­band, ac­tor Ryan Reynolds (be­low), have al­ways pri­ori­tised fam­ily over any­thing else, and re­jected many film of­fers in the past, just to spend time with each other and their daugh­ter.

The Gos­sip Girl star, who has 18-month-old James with Reynolds, said the cou­ple be­lieves in “chas­ing and main­tain­ing” the fam­ily ties rather than their ca­reers, re­ported USA To­day. “We’ve both given up projects we love be­cause we can’t keep our fam­ily to­gether. Peo­ple think their ca­reer is some­thing they have to chase and main­tain, but for us, we said, ‘Let’s chase and main­tain our per­sonal life.’ This ca­reer is like the stock mar­ket: You’ve got to stay hot while you’re hot. But your fam­ily, that’s the real thing that gives you se­cu­rity, suc­cess and hap­pi­ness,” said Lively, 28.
