Her mom, Elaine, is an accomplished Los Angeles-based acting coach, and her dad, Ernie, is an actor and director who appears in both Sisterhood films playing the father to Lively’s Bridget.
“It just felt so strange to be working alongside him,” says Lively, who has some poignant moments with her father in Sisterhood 2.
“At one point, I had to yell at him — and I never yell at him. I usually give him big teddy bear hugs.”
In fact, it was Ernie who first hired her. She was a 10-year-old playing a Tooth Fairy in his movie Sandman. But the acting thing wasn’t for her initially. Instead, she lived a “normal
Southern California kid life” until the first Sisterhood movie opportunity came along. “Then it all fell into place,” she says. Source
