What's Blake Lively been up to since stepping out of the spotlight post-Gossip Girl? Find out what the actress had to say about her new company and her new film. Blake Lively is returning to the spotlight.

After taking a break from acting post-Gossip Girl's run, the Savages star is back with a new company.

"It's something that will be launching in a few months and that I'm really, really thrilled about," Blake told Vogue UK. "The main element of it is that it's about storytelling and it's about living a very one-of-a-kind, curated life, and how to achieve that. There's nothing like it out there--it's without a genre."

"I have so many passions outside of acting and things that I grew up being good at and that I don't utilize when acting," she continued. "Acting was something that my family did so I just kind of got into it by default, but there was so much that I cultivated, thinking that I wouldn't be an actor."

Don't mistake her new venture as the end of her acting career, though.

Blake said she's "excited" to return to set for a film she's set to shoot this winter.

"One of the most enticing parts of it is that it spans from the 1900s until now," she continued. "The fashion is amazing, and my character gets to experience all of the different time periods and tell the story through fashion. It's not a movie about fashion, but it's an integral part of who she is and the whole story."

Blake, who wed hubby Ryan Reynolds last year, dished on how much her life has changed since Gossip Girl, revealing why she took her time coming back after starring in Savages in 2012.

"A lot has changed for me in the last year! I got married, I finished Gossip Girl after six years, I had my first break in a while and I've been working on this company... it has been nice to have a separation from my show," Blake went on. "The first film I did coming out of Gossip Girl, I wanted it to be different from anything I've ever done but also representative of where I want to go, because now I'm in a different place."
