Ryan Reynolds has expressed regret at having married Blake Lively on a plantation back in 2012, during an interview with Fast Company.

The 43-year-old Deadpool actor and the 32-year-old Gossip Girl alum tied the knot at Boone Hall, a former plantation in South Carolina, and were subsequently criticized for glamorizing a place where black slaves once suffered and died.

And the Canadian star was unequivocal in his apology when talking to the magazine for their September issue, calling the choice of location ‘something we’ll always be deeply and unreservedly sorry for’.

The star of The Hitman’s Bodyguard then called the decision ‘impossible to reconcile.’

‘What we saw at the time was a wedding venue on Pinterest. What we saw after was a place built upon devastating tragedy.’ 

‘Years ago we got married again at home – but shame works in weird ways. A giant f***ing mistake like that can either cause you to shut down or it can reframe things and move you into action,’ continued the action star. 

‘It doesn’t mean you won’t f*** up again. But repatterning and challenging lifelong social conditioning is a job that doesn’t end.’

Boone Hall Plantation also famously appeared in Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling’s romantic 2004 movie, The Notebook.

In May, the couple donated $200,000 to the NAACP, as well as releasing a statement which read in part, ‘We’re ashamed that in the past we’ve allowed ourselves to be uninformed about how deeply rooted systemic racism is.’ 

Back in 2012, the Green Lantern stars held their nuptials in an intimate ceremony in Charleston, South Carolina – to which just 35 guests were invited. 

Blake’s self-confessed ‘idol’ Martha Stewart helped to create the big day, alongside local wedding planner Tara Guérard.

Florence Welch performed during the ceremony, and Bette Midler was one of a number of high profile guests who attended, as well as Blake’s The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-stars America Ferrera, Amber Tamblyn, and Alexis Bledel.

Ryan and Blake have gone on to have three daughters: James, five, Inez, three, and a third daughter, born last year in October, whom the pair have so far declined to name publicly. 

The stars were first photographed as a couple in October 2011, not long after the premiere of their film, Green Lantern.

And Ryan poked fun at the much maligned superhero film on Tuesday, tweeting out a comically abbreviated ‘cut’ of the movie.

Reynolds had condensed the DC comics film, which garnered a mere 26% critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes, down to just 27 seconds.

He captioned the tweet, ‘Here’s the secret Reynolds Cut of GL you all haven’t been waiting for. In order to make it as great as possible we made some difficult and judicious cuts.’

The hilarious re-edit began with Reynolds having his brains blown out all over the film’s script by his alter-ego, Deadpool, in a scene cribbed from Deadpool 2.

It then showed the movie in brief, at one point digitally substituting Ryan for Tom Cruise, who did not appear in the movie  but was at one point rumored to take on the role of Hal Jordan.

The ‘Reynolds Cut’ then showed a snippet of the 2017 Justice League movie, which while technically part of the same comic book universe, never featured Reynold’s infamous character.
