Ryan Reynolds invited two of the most important women in his life -- his mother Tammy and wife Blake Lively -- to Tuesday's TIME 100 Gala
Reynolds, 40, looked dapper in a navy-blue tuxedo and black bow tie on the New York City red carpet, while his mother looked radiant in a black dress with a draped neckline.
Lively, 29, stunned in a Marchesa gown featuring floral appliqué and a plunging neckline with fringe detail on the sleeves and bottom.
Legendary actress Helen Mirren honored the Deadpool actor in TIME, praising him as a dedicated actor and a generous supporter of women.
“He likes them in the most simple, direct, unadorned way: for their humanity. (How very appropriate that he is the father of two girls),” Mirren wrote, adding. “He has a natural wit, which he often turns on himself, and he can balance his private and public life with great dexterity. He is open and generous, but never inappropriate. I suspect this is part of what makes him such an appealing performer.”

Reynolds posted on Instagram to thank the magazine for thinking of him and Mirren for her kind words.
“Thank you #Time100 For including me in this ridiculous list of brilliant and sometimes terrifying people,” he said. “And the gorgeous @helenmirren … I thank you from the heart of my bottom for the kindest words ever. They will be sung by a children’s choir at my extravagant funeral.”
