Lively talks ‘dark Valentine’s Day’

Blake Lively is surprised by “dark Valentine’s Day” events.

The 26-year-old actress is married to actor Ryan Reynolds, 37, and the happy couple are currently gearing up to celebrate the romantic holiday.

And New York resident Blake admits she is taken aback by how some people are choosing to express their love on February 14.

“I saw this neat thing down the street for Valentine’s Day. They were playing [1993 crime thriller] True Romance. I was like, ‘That’s kind of a dark Valentine’s Day, but whatever works.’” she recalled to Extra.

Blake and Ryan will enjoy a decidedly more lighthearted time with each other on Valentine’s Day.

Self-confessed foodie Blake is planning on whipping up something delicious in the kitchen for her beau.

“I don’t know what I’m going to bake yet, but something good,” she said.

Former Gossip Girl star Blake married Ryan on September 9, 2012, but the pair rarely speak about their relationship publicly.

Blake spoke previously about how she honors her marriage as sacred because the union provides her with deep emotional fulfillment.

“With film and TV, you don’t see the results for months,” she revealed during an interview with Lucky magazine.

“Building a home, you get immediate gratification…. My greatest passion is my personal life.”

Ryan has been married previously to The Avengers actress Scarlett Johansson, but they divorced in 2011 after being wed for three years.
