Sure, making movies is exciting and all, but Blake Lively has found an even more invigorating passion project ever since marrying former Sexiest Man Alive Ryan Reynolds last September – transforming their upstate New York house into a home.
"Work is important, but my greatest passion is my personal life," she tells Lucky for its September cover story, on newsstands Aug. 6. "With film and TV, you don't see the results for months. Building a home, you get immediate gratification."
Lively, 25, has taken a pause from acting at the moment, and happily swapped trips to the set with trips to Home Depot as she and Reynolds feather their nest in quaint Bedford, N.Y.

Is Six Degrees of Ken Jeong about to take off as the new Hollywood parlor game?
The Hangover's breakout star has worked with his share of PEOPLE's Sexiest Men Alive – paging Ryan Reynolds and Bradley Cooper – and the actor says he's not far from becoming his own version of the game Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, in which players attempt to link Bacon to every other actor on planet earth.
"I may have possibly, yes, worked with some of the Sexiest Men Alive. I might be the Kevin Bacon of Sexiest Men," Jeong said jokingly to PEOPLE at Tuesday night's premiere of his new animated 3D movie Turbo, starring Reynolds. (It opens nationally July 17.)
"I've got, like, different degrees of Sexiest Man [in my life]."
But out of the two men, Reynolds and Cooper (who starred with Jeong in all three Hangover movies), who would Jeong say really owns the crown?

We've committed a great deal of time and energy to envying Blake Lively. Those legs. That wardrobe. Her man.
Yes, she's the girl who won Ryan Reynolds's heart, getting the best of our jealous hearts and marrying him last September.
But we're going to let her off the hook for a minute because there's a new subject deserving of our green streak: We're looking at you, Baxter.

You want to be the man in Scarlett Johansson's life? Watch how you act.
"I don't like jealous behavior," the actress, 28, tells Marie Claire for its May issue, on newsstands April 16.
"I don't mind an occasional check-in, but when somebody is passive-aggressively jealous, it's really unattractive because it shows a sort of insecurity. ... Oh, controlling behavior is awful. Nobody's going to say they love that."

Ever since she went to school in the south of France, Blake Lively has been dreaming of how she'll one day create her perfect kitchen.
"My kitchen is the most important part of my home," the actress, 25, tells Elle Decor. "I want to be creative and innovative, not only in its aesthetic, but also in the tools that I'm using to cook."
Now that she's married to Ryan Reynolds and living in a $2 million home in Bedford, N.Y., the star is ready to start making those kitchen dreams a reality.

Is Burger King the key to how Ryan Reynolds stays so beefy?
Maybe not, but it sure doesn't appear to be having a negative impact. The super-fit actor, 36, took a fast food lunch break in New York City on Tuesday while filming his latest movie.
Blake Lively's hot hubby – who has flaunted his fit physique on magazine covers and in numerous films, including a nude scene with Sandra Bullock in The Proposal – was totally covered up in pants and layers on top when he stepped out for his meal.
