Ryan Reynolds has already won our hearts one million times over just by being the amazing man that he is, but he did it again by doing the sweetest, most romantic thing for his wife Blake Lively.

In an interview with British Vogue, Lively dished about her experience at the Cannes Film Festival, explaining how her incredibly thoughtful husband broke a red carpet rule just to be by her side.

“I’ve been [at Cannes] with my husband two years ago, which was so special,” she said. “He actually broke a Cannes rule and snuck away from the rest of his cast and came back and picked me up, so we got to walk the red carpet together. To be there at Cannes with him, thinking, ‘Wow, he has a film at the Cannes Film Festival, what a big deal’ was so special.”

The sweetest.

Lively also mentioned that the Cannes red carpet situation is unique and super intimidating.

“They clear the carpet, which is unique — you never have another red carpet where it’s just the one person standing there,” she said. “It’s actually incredibly intimidating! … You’re not focusing on people screaming your name and it blasts out your inner thoughts. It’s the difference between dancing with and without music.”

Knowing how intimidated Lively feels on the Cannes red carpet makes Reynold’s gesture that much more special. #romance
