Blake Lively announced today that she will soon be launching her own lifestyle company about "living a one-of-a-kind, curated life." The actress's new project is already drawing comparisons to Gwyneth Paltrow's lifestyle brand, Goop, which, interestingly enough, rang in its fifth anniversary today. While it's hard to compare the two companies when we haven't even seen Blake's new venture, we have noticed a lot of similarities between the two actresses over the years. From their family connections to Hollywood to their love of cooking, Blake and Gwyneth have a lot more in common than you would think. Here are our reasons why the former Gossip Girl star is destined for Gwyneth-level greatness.
They Kinda Look the Same
Let's start with the obvious, shall we? Both Blake and Gwyneth are blond, have blue eyes, are naturally tall and thin, and have wide, friendly smiles. If we didn't know any better, we would guess that these two are sisters.
They Both Were the Pretty, Popular Girl in High School
A commenter on Reddit who claimed to have gone to high school with Blake said she was "super pretty and very popular," adding that she was "really nice and actually really funny . . . she was voted class clown in the yearbook." Meanwhile, Gwyneth's time at Spence in NYC was infamously profiled by New York magazine, where she was remembered by anonymous former classmates as popular and "six feet tall with blonde hair down to her waist."
They Love to Cook
Blake Lively famously won over Ryan Reynolds by baking him cupcakes on the set of Green Lantern. She has also studied cooking at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and whipped up a tasty-looking pastry for Vogue's web series Elettra's Goodness. Of course, Gwyneth's love of food is well-documented as she's written two cookbooks.
