Netflix’s The Adam Project has given us many directions to think about the film and even forced us to take a sneak peek in our hearts. What do we really want? Do you love this version of yourselves or the childhood version? If you get one chance to give your 12-year-old a piece of advice, what will it be?

These questions made you think, right? But, sometimes no advice is the best advice and Ryan Reynolds believes in this quote. Despite his professional and personal success, The Adam Project lead cast, Ryan Reynolds claims he wouldn’t change a thing about himself. In an interview with Parade, Reynolds said, “All of those little dust-ups and failures and mistakes that I was about to make, or go on to make, are all the things that lead to all the learning.”

Reynolds loves his old self as much as he loves his adult life. This is in sharp contrast with The Adam Project‘s Adam, who has trouble reconciling with his past self. Towards the end of the movie, Adam learns self love and acceptance. However, Reynolds already has that down.
