Washington: Blake Lively has a criteria when it comes to boyfriends - she prefers them to be tall.

The 24-year-old actress, who is believed to be dating actor Ryan Reynolds, would feel like “the man” in the relationship if she romanced someone shorter than her own 5ft 10in.

“I always love somebody who makes me laugh, whose fun to be with,” Contactmusic quoted her as telling Access Hollywood.

“I love really high heels, so it becomes a problem sometimes. I just feel like huge... you don’t want to feel like the man,” she said.

Blake recently admitted she finds well-dressed guys attractive.

“It’s definitely attractive when a man can dress well.

“What I love most is when someone, guy or girl, is effortless and has this old-timey sort of feel [that] you could take a snapshot of them and they could exist in any time period,” she added.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ star also admitted she likes guys who love food because she enjoys cooking so much.

“To be around me, you must love food or I’m the most obnoxious person you’ve ever met.

“I’m in a big cooking phase. That’s all I’ll talk about,” she said.
