Blake Lively has left CAA, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter.
The actress, who continues to be repped by Management 360 and Jackoway Tyerman, will take meetings as she hunts for a new agency. Her husband, actor Ryan Reynolds, is repped by WME.

Lively is best known as the star of CW’s cult hit Gossip Girl, in which she played Serena van der Woodsen for six seasons beginning in 2007. She also made inroads into movies, earning rave reviews for her work in The Town, holding her own opposite Ben Affleck, Jeremy Renner and Rebecca Hall.

Lively also appeared in Green Lantern opposite Reynolds, as well as last summer’s Savages, directed by Oliver Stone and starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Taylor Kitsch.

Among her upcoming movies is Adaline, a Lakeshore/Sidney Kimmel Entertainment drama currently in preproduction and being eyed for a spring 2014 shoot.

Lively came to CAA in 2007 after being repped by Gersh.

Blake Lively can add one more item to her resumé: inspirational White House speaker.

First Lady Michelle Obama invited the Gossip Girl actress to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Friday to speak to a gathered group of high school students interested to learn more about careers in film.

Lively, 26, joined Whoopi Goldberg, Naomie Harris, Harvey Weinstein and others to shed light on the realities of working in the film industry.

According to US News & World Report, Lively’s insights stood out when she frankly revealed that her high school did not let her walk at graduation because she missed too many days of school to film her breakout role in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

“They didn’t let me do that because they wanted to shut me down,” she told the students, per US News, which also reported that years later the school asked the star to speak at graduation. She said no.

Lively, who wed Ryan Reynolds last year also told the students that despite her showbiz roots, her first goal was to attend an Ivy League college.

“It was the only thing I knew I didn’t want to do,” she said of a career in Hollywood. “I wanted to get a great education.”

Lively, who was class president and a cheerleader, admitted she has yet to achieve that dream.

“If I could, I would go back and I would go to college,” she said.

But things obviously worked out for Lively, particularly after she landed the lead on Gossip Girl.

“I thought I tricked them,” she said of getting the part. “I was excited to get free food on set.”

As if being married to Sexist Man Alive Ryan Reynolds weren’t enough, Blake Lively insists that she doesn’t have to suffer for her fabulous figure.

When asked if she follows a fitness routine, Lively said, “None!”

“I’m lucky to have an active lifestyle,” she says to Vogue Paris. “I’m always on the go. I don’t need to have a [trainer] or pay attention to what I eat. I can’t start my day without a cup of hot milk chocolate or finish without crunching a few dark chocolate squares. It’s good for my morale.”

But any lack of calorie counting certainly isn’t hurting her career. L’Oreal Paris recently announced that Lively will be their new global spokesperson and will appear in ads for cosmetics, hair care and hair color.
