The high you experience as you embark on your honeymoon can only be intensified by running into your favorite celebrity. I mean, can you even imagine?! But for this honeymooning pair of Ryan Reynolds fans, things went south rather quickly when they ran into the Deadpool star on their post-wedding getaway. On Friday's episode of The Graham Norton Show, Ryan Reynolds recounted the “surreal” encounter.

“I was on a plane with a honeymooning couple and the bride became very ill," Reynolds said, per Entertainment Tonight. "Not just throwing up ill, but really painting with her internal organs.” It’s not clear what this woman came down with, but it wouldn’t be a surprise if all the exhaustion and stress of wedding planning finally caught up with her. “She was taken off the plane on a stretcher it was so bad," remembered Reynolds.

Even though the bride was in rough shape, good thing she had her new, built-in caretaker with her, right? Wrong. According to Reynolds, her starstruck groom was barely any help. "As her new husband followed her out, he spotted me and shouted, 'Deadpool, high five!’" Reynolds said. "It was a surreal moment. Firstly, I didn’t want to high five him just in case he was infected, and secondly, he seemed to have no concern for his dying wife!"

It’s good to know that Reynolds would probably would never put his wife Blake Lively in a similar situation—that is, unless their kids were involved. “I used to say to her, ‘I would take a bullet for you. I could never love anything as much as I love you,’” the actor famously said. “And then the second I looked in that baby’s eyes, I knew in that exact moment, if we were ever under attack, I would use my wife as a human shield to protect that baby.” Sorry, Blake!
