She was married to an actor 

Elaine married actor and acting coach Ernie Lively in 1979

Blake, in an interview, said her parents always taught acting, and instead of getting her a babysitter, they would just take her to class. 

Her elder brother Eric drove her forcefully into the acting world, taking her on a low-budget grand tour of Europe and asking her to take serious life decisions at just 15. 

Blake, who at the time was dreaming of attending Stanford University, had to go for auditions after her brother, without her knowledge, contacted his agent, and she could not say no, thinking her brother would get upset.

During an interview, Ryan said both he and Blake were single a year after Green Lantern and were on a double date. 

He was on a date with another girl, and she was with another guy, which according to him, was the most awkward date for their respective because they were just like fireworks coming across.

Responding to his comment, Blake later said there were no fireworks for her. 

Having said that, she added they had been such good friends for so long and got to know each other as friends. 

When they were single, they were still trying to find a perfect match for each other until it clicked after a year and a half that they could date.
