Blake Lively unafraid to age

Blake Lively doesn't care about ageing and is uninterested in trying to stay looking young for as long as possible.



Blake Lively is not concerned about ageing.

The 27-year-old actress - who is married to 'The Proposal' hunk Ryan Reynolds - won't conform to pressure to try and stay looking youthful because she doesn't want to get "trapped" in a battle she can't win.

Blake feels much more secure in herself since she became a mother to her daughter James, who was born in December.

The 'Green Lantern' star told the new issue of Allure magazine: "Having a child makes you realise that we pass on for a reason. You think, 'I have to go, because it makes room for you.'

"People are obsessed with beauty and youth and with looking and feeling young forever. But look at a woman who is granted that; she's trapped, because it's tragic to be young forever."

Blake - who portrays Adaline Bowman, a woman who remains 29 years old for nearly eight decades, in new film 'The 'Age of Adaline' - says the birth of her daughter has changed all of her priorities and gave her a new perspective on life.

Speaking about James' impact on her life, she said: "I feel like I've figured out the most important thing to me. And everything supports that."
