Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were Humans of New York at the Met Gala


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.”
