Before there was Penn Badgley, Leonardo DiCaprio and Blake Lively‘s new hubby Ryan Reynolds, there was Brad Pitt.

Well, at least in the actress’ dreams.

In an interview Lively gave to Cosmopolitan in 2008, Hollywood’s fresh-faced “it” girl was quite candid about the kind of man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with – even joking about marrying Angelina Jolie’s other half.

What kind of man did Lively want to be with forever?

“I’ve kissed just three people in my life, other than stuff that I’ve done for TV or movies. I know—I’m weird!” the 25-year-old confessed to the magazine. “I hope Brad Pitt doesn’t hear this. He’s never going to want to marry me!”

At the time, the blonde beauty had been romantically linked to Gossip Girl co-star Badgely — they split in 2010 — but still had a check list of do’s and don’ts for the perfect man.

“If a guy can play Guitar Hero with me and sit at home and watch the Food Network and read magazines with me, that’s good,” she said. “I don’t think there are many guys that’s fun for. It’s a lot to ask.”


More importantly, for Lively, a guy can’t deny her just desserts.

“Actually, you know what? A guy’s also perfect if he doesn’t try to eat my dessert,” she said.

And even four years ago, the actress was thinking about the future when it came to the man in her life. “I don’t want to date someone just to date someone,” she said. “I want to be with a guy who’s going to better my quality of life and better me.”

Lively and Reynolds secretly tied the knot at the famous Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina over the weekend. Following the ceremony in the plantation’s Cotton Docks, Florence Welch – the lead singer of Florence + the Machine — performed for the newlywed couple. Icon Bette Midler then serenaded wedding guests, who were asked to check their phones at the door before entering the grounds, reported E! News.
