"A Huge Mistake": Ryan Reynolds expressed regret over the location of his 2012 wedding to Blake Lively during an interview with Fast Company. The couple seen here in 2011

“We remarried at home years ago – but shame works in a strange way. A huge mistake like this can either cause you to shut down or it can reshape things and move you to action, ”continued the action star.

“That doesn't mean you won't open again. But repatterning and the challenge of lifelong social conditioning is a job that doesn't end. & # 39;

Boone Hall Plantation also starred in Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling's 2004 romantic film The Notebook.

In May, the couple donated $ 200,000 to the NAACP and issued a statement that read, in part, "We are ashamed of our past failure to learn how deeply rooted systemic racism is."
