Crucial Update

Blake Lively Has the Table Manners of Jack Dawson and the Eating Habits of a Fifth Grader

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It took fancy run-ins with Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, and President Obama to convince Blake Likely that she was overdue for an etiquette class. The Age of Adeline star admits to finding remnants of bacon cheese scones on her elbow and toes, and that her eating style is basically "like I'm in a food fight with myself."

As the actress tells it, she's Titanic's Jack Dawson in a world of BYOtailcoat boat dinners, which has inspired husband Ryan Reynolds to theorize this is how she maintains her slim figure. Blake offers, helpfully, "My husband says that the reason that I don't gain as much weight as I should is only 10% makes it into my mouth."
