Blake Lively Shares Love For ‘It Ends With Us’ Co-Star Isabela Ferrer

We know her as a Hollywood star, entrepreneur and style icon, but Blake Lively is also the best hype girl. From cheering on Taylor Swift to celebrating Beyoncé (and even us here at CelebrityKIND!), Blake is always uplifting women. And most recently,  she took a moment to shoutout actor Isabela Ferrer, her co-star in the upcoming film, It Ends With Us. 

Isabela plays young Lily Bloom in the film while Blake plays present Lily. The two recently attended a Book Bonanza event in Texas together to discuss the journey from book to film and host a special screening.

In a now-expired Instagram story, Blake shared a glowing selfie of the two of them after the event. She wrote, “I love this person so much. I cannot wait for the world to experience her beauty. Yeah, she’s stunning. But it’s every single bit of her insides that’s Isabela Ferrer’s real magic. On screen and off. You’ll see her soon in her 1st FILM EVER, It Ends With Us.”

Isabela had some equally lovely words to say about Blake too:

“This woman is a force to be reckoned with. But we already knew that.”

Is there a trailer for It Ends With Us?

Yes, there is! Sony Pictures released the first trailer for It Ends With Us last month – an emotional and chilling 2-minute clip, perfectly set to Taylor Swift’s “My Tears Ricochet.” It gives us a glimpse into the highly anticipated adaptation of Colleen Hoover’s hugely popular novel, beginning with a smiling Blake as Lily Bloom opening her florist with bestie Allysa. We’re also introduced to handsome neurosurgeon Ryle Kincaid as well as Lily’s ex, Atlas Corrigan. Between moments of happiness and joy, Lily is clearly overcome with sadness and pain too:

 

 

Who is cast in It Ends With Us?

Blake Lively stars as lead Lily Bloom opposite Justin Baldoni as her love interest Ryle Kincaid (who is also directing the film). Brandon Sklenar plays fellow lead Atlas Corrigan, Lily’s school friend and first love.

Jenny Slate and Hasan Minaj portray Allysa, Ryle’s sister and Marshall, Allysa’s husband and Ryle’s good friend.

And of course there’s Isabela Ferrer who plays young Lily while Alex Neustaedter plays young Atlas.

When news of the epic casting first came out, Colleen took to Instagram to share her excitement: “Cannot wait for this. Loving the cast so far. Feels like a dream.”

What is It Ends With Us about?

The book, which explores themes of domestic violence, masculinity, jealousy, heartache and more, has been a huge online sensation. In January 2022, it debuted at #1 on the New York Times’ Best Sellers list and has been a consistent point of discussion on “booktok”, aka book-lovers on TikTok.

It follows the present day story of Lily, a young entrepreneur who grew up in an abusive home and falls for a neurosurgeon named Ryle, as well as the past story of Lily’s relationship with a homeless friend named Atlas. When Atlas reappears in her life years later, Lily finds herself navigating her relationships, and her heart. Per the official synopsis, “Lily realises she must learn to rely on her own strength to make an impossible choice for her future.”

Justin Baldoni has said the team behind It Ends With Us has partnered with nonprofit NoMore.org to ensure the project is “made with purpose and the intention to educate, support and ultimately provide resources for viewers.”

Some important stats about gender-based violence:

According to global data released by the World Bank Gender Data Portal, 30% of women have experienced intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence – that’s around 736 million women around the world.

More than 1 in 4 women (26%) aged 15 years and older have suffered violence at the hands of their partners at least once since the age of 15 – that’s around 641 million according to the World Health Organisation.

And an estimated 245 million (or 10% of women ages 15 and above) have experienced intimate partner violence in the last 12 months alone (also per WHO).
