Dan Humphrey wasn't the only one on Gossip Girl with a few secrets.
In a lovely little video interview, Blake Lively spoke to Variety about seven surprising things that most people probably don't know about her—from her favorite Instagrammer to whether or not she's afraid of sharks after filming The Shallows. She also talks about her first (very tiny) apartment in New York, and the best advice she ever received from her mother. So sweet!
In a word, the video is ~delightful~, and it's hard not to be charmed by the actress and her ridiculously adorable answers.
