In the past, many have thought of Blake Lively as someone who is a bit out of touch with common folk.
Some of that is certainly jealousy of her insane beauty. Some of that was because she sold products on her now-defunct lifestyle website, Preserve, for an insane amount of money. Some of it is because she apparently doesn't follow the rules.
It turns out, though, Blake is just like us.
While attending a state dinner at the White House with her husband Ryan Reynolds on March 10, Blake donned a low-cut silver Ralph & Russo dress with cutout shoulders… and Spanx!
Yes, Spanx! We told you she was just like us… sort of!
Ryan, for the record, didn't look too shabby in a Burberry suit either.
Blake's Spanx could be seen due to the high cut on the bottom of the dress. Wherein this would be a fashion faux pas, it made us all like her more!
Blake always seems to stun in anything she wears, so really the White House dinner, held for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, was no different.
Earlier this year, Ryan told People magazine that having a daughter is "a dream come true."
"I don't have to prepare to be wrapped around my daughter's finger," he says, adding that he calls his little princess "Shrimpie." "I have been wrapped around her little finger since the day she plopped out into this world."
His daughter may have claimed his heart, but it his wife has anything to say about it, James won't be thinking about daddy when she speaks.
"We're total rivals," she told "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon in April 2015. "Dada is banned in our house!"
Further arguing as to why "mama" should be her baby girl's first word, Blake joked about her handsome hubby, "He's pathetic! I do everything, he does nothing."
The former "Gossip Girl" star also revealed that the first-time parents might be working on a redesign of their daughter's room for when she's older that will suit their overprotective behavior. "Her room has no windows. We cannot have a child, our daughter, go in with a boyfriend and do anything terrible," she said. "We need a chastity window! That's a new form of contraception."
