Humans of New York apparently got an invite to Monday’s Met Gala, because some of its most recent New Yorkers are pretty high-profile.

The popular Instagram interview blog shared a snap of Deadpool star Ryan Reynolds and wife Blake Lively decked out for Vogue‘s annual themed ball in their best Comme des Garçons-inspired looks. When asked about his wife, Reynolds activated his signature in-press gush.

“She always responds with empathy,” he says of Lively in the photo’s caption. “And she’s made me a more empathetic person. I had a very fractured relationship with my father. Before he died, she made me remember things I didn’t want to remember. She made me remember the good times.”
