Martha Stewart thinks Blake Lively should focus on being an actress.

The 72-year-old lifestyle guru, who helped the 26-year-old actress plan her wedding to Ryan Reynolds in September 2012, thinks it's ''stupid'' that the blonde beauty is said to be ''becoming the next Martha Stewart'' because she is launching her own new lifestyle blog and brand, Preserve.

Asked about the 'Savages' star's new venture, Martha said: ''Let her try.''

She added: ''I don't mean that facetiously! I mean, it's stupid, she could be an actress! Why would you want to be me if you could be an actress? I just did a movie yesterday, though -- I can't even tell you about it -- but I want to be Blake Lively.''

The duo became firm friends when the couple moved into Martha's neighbourhood in New York, and she thinks they're ''very friendly, very nice people.''

She told the Huffington Post: ''She moved into my neighbourhood a couple of years ago with Ryan -- before they got married, they bought a house right around the corner from my house. And they started to come over, not to borrow sugar, but just as friends.''

But she was surprised by how reserved the former 'Gossip Girl' star is in real life.

She said: ''In a way, [Blake's] kind of shy -- not shy on the screen, at all, if you've seen any of Blake's movies -- but very shy in person. But she's a baker and a homemaker and now she's starting her own blog [Preserve] ... I haven't seen it yet.''

Blake recently claimed her wedding ''was becoming a disaster'' before she and Ryan asked her ''idol'' Martha to oversee the event in South Carolina.

The 'Age of Adaline' star also admitted she had no problem being compared to Martha or Gwyneth Paltrow's website Goop.

She said: ''I'm always the first person to defend Gwyneth Paltrow. Or any woman in a position of power, like Martha Stewart or Oprah, who gets burned because they have paved the path for so many other women who are doing something they believe in.''
