Blake Lively “sabotaged” Ryan Reynolds’ workout regime with baked goods.

The pair star together in the superhero movie ‘The Green Lantern.’ While Reynolds battled to get in shape for his costume, Lively made him calorific treats so she would look better than him on screen.

“It was just a way to sabotage Ryan. He was working out as much as he was, and I’m the girl. I’m supposed to look better,” Lively said.

However Reynolds, who admitted baked goods are his weakness, was happy to scoff Lively’s food.

“[For] most actors, it’s coke and guns. For me, it’s baked goods,” Lively said.

Lively, who cites Martha Stewart and British chef Nigella Lawson as her “idols,” had previously spoken of her baking obsession and said she would love to own her own bakery one day.

She explained: “Martha Stewart’s my idol. I like Nigella Lawson too. And of course, Paula Deen – butter, butter, butter! The only time I really go on the internet is for recipes.

“I want to have a brunch place, a bakery, and a Southern restaurant – because my family’s from Georgia – and then I want a place that is all-over-the-world cuisine.

“I take a cooking class everywhere I travel. I find it’s the best way to get to know a culture.”
