Ryan Reynolds talking about Blake Lively at the Met Gala will melt your heart

Ryan Reynolds had the most beautiful things to say about Blake Lively at the Met Gala.

If you didn't already think Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds were a dream couple, Ryan proved the two really are meant for each other at the Met Gala.

On a night that is primarily about glitz, glam and who's wearing what, Ryan cut to the heart of his relationship with his wife of four years.

Speaking to Humans of New York photographer, Brandon Stanton, Ryan revealed it was Blake who helped him patch up a rocky relationship with his late father.

"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," he said.

"She always responds with empathy. She meets anger with empathy. She meets hate with empathy. She’ll take the time to imagine what happened to a person when they were five or six years old. And she’s made me a more empathetic person."


Ryan is usually better known for his sense of humour, especially when it comes to his family, so this is a rare insight into the genuine love and admiration he has for his wife.

Blake and Ryan have two children: James, aged 2, and Ines, 7 months.
