Rumors swirled when OK! magazine said that Lively was sporting a tiny baby bump recently and wearing looser clothing, but her rep denied it all.

"The story is 100% false, a rep for Lively told the New York Daily News. "Blake is not pregnant."

It would have been nice for Lively and her hubby Ryan Reynolds to start a family, but many fans want to see the 25-year-old actress play Kate Kavanagh in "Fifty Shades of Grey."

Kate is Anastasia Steele's tenacious best friend and roommate with green eyes, strawberry blonde hair, and said to be "articulate, strong, persuasive, and argumentative." She is a journalist that couldn't make it to interview Christian Grey, which is how Ana met him. She also has a curvaceous body.

TheStir.CafeMom said, "With her composure and high-class vibe, she's much more of a Katherine."

IBTimes said that while fans also like "Gossip Girl" star Leighton Meester as a Kate contender, costar Kavanagh is a "strong candidate" for the part.

A Tumblr page features Lively as Kate, while there is a Twitter page,@KateK_Grey, that features Lively as the role of Kate. The account tweets to @ElliotCoolGrey [which is Ryan Reynolds as Christian's brother Elliot Grey], saying that they are a couple.

Business Insider said: "Since Kavanagh comes from a wealthy background, much like Lively's 'Gossip Girl' character, she'd have much material to draw from for the part." But their ultimate pick for Kate is Amber Heard.

TheStir said that Lively is the "obvious choice" for Kate, saying that "Lively fits the role both physically and because of her raw confidence."

Here's what some fans said of Blake Lively as Kate:

"Blake! She's who I saw as Kate immediately when I started reading it."

"I think she's perfect for Kate Kavanaugh, but she'd be terrible as Ana. She's way too confident in her sexuality for that role."

"I think she would make a great Kate but I see someone such as alexis bledel as ana..:)."

"While I was reading the books I had Blake in my head as Kate. Spot on."

"Blake Lively is perfect for Kate."

"Kate! She matches kates role perfectly."

"Yes Blake would make the perfect Kate!!"

"I like this character! Blake Lively would be perfect for the role."

Other possibilities for Kate include Amber Heard, Amanda Seyfried, Elizabeth Olsen and Emma Stone.
