BLAKE Lively "sabotaged" Ryan Reynolds' work-out regime with baked goods.

The pair star together in superhero movie 'The Green Lantern' and while Ryan battled to get in shape for his costume, Blake made him calorific treats so she would look better than him on screen.

She joked: "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."

However Ryan - who admitted baked goods are his weakness - was happy to scoff Blake's food.

He said: "[For] most actors, it's coke and guns. For me, it's baked goods."

Blake - who cites Stewart and British chef Nigella Lawson as her "idols" has previously spoken of her baking obsession and said she would love to one day own her own bakery.

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."
