Blake Lively Asked Beyoncé and Taylor Swift Not to Feel ‘Threatened’ by Her in Sweet Tribute

Blake Lively couldn't be prouder of Beyoncé and Taylor Swift.

After attending the London premiere of Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé, the 36-year-old actor took to Instagram to praise the musicians for setting a powerful example for young women by supporting each other's projects. “When I grew up, women were always pit [sic] against one another,” Lively captioned a series of photos with Queen Bey and Swift from the event. “It took me until adulthood to see that the instinct for women to lift each other up to their highest potential is the norm not the exception.”

Lively continued, “Most of my best friends are women who would’ve been packaged to me as threats or competition. It’s our job to show younger generations the power in aligning rather than dividing.” Clearly, she was just as moved by each superstar's presence at the other's concert film premieres. While the “Alien Superstar” singer attended the Eras Tour world premiere in Los Angeles back in October, Swift wasn't able to return the favor at the LA Renaissance premiere due to a conflicting concert in Brazil, so she flew to London to make up for it.

Of course, Lively—who is known for trolling husband Ryan Reynolds on social media—couldn't get too earnest on main. “All this to say, @beyonce and @taylorswift neither of you have to be threatened by my pop stardom,” the Gossip Girl star joked. “There’s space for us all.”

She finished up her post with a movie recommendation, writing, “Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé. In theaters now…And even better than you can imagine. ✨👽✨” You can see the post here. I mean, if you were besties with the two most powerful women in music, you'd gush over them too. Okay, let's be real: You probably already do.

If this is not a *Reputation* Easter egg, I don't know what is.
