But popular blog Humans of New York got to chronicle the event from behind the scenes, and captured a side of some of our favorite celebrities that we normally don't get to see. better have a box of tissues handy!

Selena Gomez talked about how she'd be completely comfortable walking away from her fame:

“I feel like I’m just starting, but I think I’d be fine if it all went away. I get that from my mother. From the moment I started singing, she always reminded me that all of this was a privilege, and could be taken at any moment. So singing is not how I define myself. I try to keep my identity rooted in my friendships and my faith.”

Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy talked about their son Cyrus, the newest addition to their family:

“Having a child was the best thing that ever happened to us. But it is constant company with terrible conversation.”


A GLOWING Serena Williams (the greatest athlete alive, PERIOD) posed with her fiance Alexis Ohanian, who praised his lovely lady:

“She has the biggest heart. Everyone sees her success as an athlete, but all of that is layered on the size of her heart. She gives 100% of herself to everything she does: as a friend, as a lover, and soon, as a mother.”

And finally, the always adorable Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively looked stunning together as the handsome hubby gushed over his wife:

“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. 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.”
