And just hours before stepping out onto the red carpet, Reynolds revealed the key to making their six-year marriage work.

Speaking to People magazine, Reynolds revealed that he and Lively have a strict rule when it comes to juggling work and parenthood which ensures that they see each other and remain a close family unit.

He said: "Blake and I don't do movies at the same time. If she is doing a movie in Thailand and I am doing a movie in Vancouver, we would just never see each other. We operate as a unit, and that works really well for us."

"The kids stay with us, and the family stays together," Reynolds continued. "And that is where home is. So if we are in Spain or Utah or New York, as long as we are together, we're home."

However, because this is Ryan Reynolds, he couldn't let sentimentality get in the way of the opportunity for a joke, and got hilariously honest about the realities of flying all over the world with two young children.

He said: "Usually when I'm on an airplane with my kids, at some point I get up and ask the flight attendants if I can leave the aircraft. 99% of the time they say, 'No, please stay seated!' So I just sit back down and long for the sweet release of death."
