Blake Lively and Penn Badgley played love interests on “Gossip Girl,” but their relationship didn’t begin until 2007. Due to the popularity of the show, they kept their romance secret because they thought they’d get in trouble.

"I remember there was one point where we were just afraid of how our personal lives overlapping our work life could be perceived by our bosses," Lively reflected during an interview with Vanity Fair.

Badgley and Lively dated for three years before breaking up in 2010. Two years later, the actress married Ryan Reynolds.

During an interview with Allure, Garner opened up about their marriage.

"We didn't have a shot," Garner told the magazine in 2013. "Oh, he's a great guy. We were full-on grown-ups, but looking back I'm aware we did not know what hit us.”

A few months later, she started dating her “Daredevil” co-star, Ben Affleck.
