Blake Lively says she's become less enthusiastic about her birthday as she's become older.

The Hollywood actress - who is married to 'Deadpool' star Ryan Reynolds - celebrated her 31st birthday on Saturday (25.08.18), but speaking ahead of her big day, Blake admitted she's become less enthusiastic about the annual celebration than she used to be.

The blonde beauty - who has kids James, three, and 22-month-old Ines with Ryan - told E! News: ''I feel like the older you get the more it just kind of is less of a thing.''

Despite this, Blake still intended to indulge herself with some of her favourite foods.

Asked about he plans for the big day, she shared: ''I'll probably eat ... I really like to eat, there's a place on the Lower East Side called Il Laboratorio del Gelato, and they secretly make bon bons.''

Meanwhile, Blake recently clapped back at an online troll who told her to sack her stylist.

The former 'Gossip Girl' star hilariously responded to the Instagram user who commented on a photograph of the actress in a bold Roland Mouret suit.

The person wrote: ''I say this with so much love and respect for you babe, please hire a stylist or fire the one you're currently with (sic).''

Blake - who is her own stylist - fired back: ''Thank you for the tips, sir. Alas, I've tried to fire @blakelively so many times. But that b***h just keeps coming back. She won't leave me alone. (sic)''

Blake previously revealed she doesn't use a stylist because she has a ''big ego'' and relishes the creative freedom.

Asked why she doesn't have a stylist, she said: ''Probably because I have control issues and a big ego - that's probably the honest answer.

''I just like it. I love design and I love fashion and it's a way to be creative. In my job I get to be creative, but it's over a period of time and so many other people are involved, whereas this is a beginning, middle and end, and I get to be creative and there's an end date in the near future.''
