Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin paid tribute to Christopher Reeve at a star-studded gala in honour of the late actor's charity on Wednesday night (30Nov11).
The Superman star died from a heart attack in 2004 after years of being wheelchair-bound following a horse-riding accident in 1995.
His wife Dana passed away in 2006 after a battle with lung cancer and the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation was announced the following year (07).
The late actor's children from a previous relationship, Matthew and Alexandra, were on hand to represent the couple at the glitzy New York gala in aid of the organisation, which aims to find treatments and cures for paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.
It's Complicated co-stars Streep and Baldwin took on hosting duties, while other star guests included Mark Ruffalo and Dave Annable.
