Blake Lively has come quite the long way since her time as Gossip Girl‘s Upper East Side socialite Serena van der Woodsen, and staving off that killer shark in The Shallows.

Everyone’s favorite blonde has molded herself into a versatile actress, whether holding her own in drug-riddled crime thriller, Savages, or flirting with immortality in the romantic fantasy, The Age of Adaline

Not to mention, her short-lived foray into the superhero world as Carol Ferris of Green Lantern lore was easily the highlight to the otherwise poorly received DC feature.

Her aforementioned turn as the terrorized surfer turns shark-slayer in The Shallows cemented her status as a budding new cinematic force.

Take that, Richard Dreyfuss!

She also did a sexy mystery thriller with Anna Kendrick called A Simple Favor

In honor of Blake’s 32nd year, here are a few of her Instagrams over the years to truly pinpoint just why we’re so envious of her husband, Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds.

You know you love her. XOXO

You’re welcome.
