Blake Lively to Star in ‘The Age of Adaline’

By: Kimberly Ripley - April 5, 2014

Blake Lively was spotted preparing to shoot an upcoming film, and she looked like she stepped straight out of 1970 when she first appeared on set. Ready for her role in The Age of Adaline, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star was seen earlier in the week reading lines with costar Ellen Burstyn in the Gastown District of Vancouver.

Lively spoke recently about her belief in the power of fragrance and how she takes particular ones with her as her career takes her all over the world.

“Fragrance is a superpower. Because if you smell the fragrance of someone you love, whether it’s your mom or your husband, the smell of your niece and nephew’s hair – that is one of the most powerful emotional experiences you can have.”

“When I first moved to New York I bought this baby shampoo that my nieces and nephews wore and their baby lotion. And I used to wear it because I missed them so much that having my hair smell like them made me somehow feel more connected with them.”

It would be interesting to know what fragrances Blake Lively brought with her to Vancouver while she shoots The Age of Adaline.

The Age of Adaline “follows the miraculous life of the 29-year old title character, who stops aging after recovering from a near-fatal accident. Over the 20th century she embarks on an epic but isolated worldwide journey, keeping her secret, until she meets a man who forever alters her life.”

Michiel Huisman plays opposite Blake Lively in the upcoming film. He is best known for his role on Game of Thrones.

In addition to Lively, Burstyn, and Huisman, The Age of Adaline also stars Harrison Ford, Kathy Baker, and Amanda Crew. It is set to hit theaters some time in 2015.
