Hugh Jackman gushed about his time hanging out with Emily Blunt after the pair participated in Variety Studio: Actors On Actors together. And when the actress’ husband, John Krasinski, found out, he roasted Jackman on social media. Then Ryan Reynolds joined in too – with hilarious results.
As many social media users know, Hugh Jackman, 50, and Ryan Reynolds, 42, have an ongoing pretend feud. It all began after the two actors first got to know each other while working together on the 2009 movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Jackman portrayed the titular character, also known as Logan, and Reynolds appeared as Wade Wilson, a.k.a Deadpool.
And in the movie, Wolverine kills Wade Wilson in a move that comic fans widely reviled. So when Reynolds played a different incarnation of the same character in Deadpool, he wasted no time poking fun at his former co-star. For instance, Deadpool includes a scene where the anti-hero holds a mask of Jackman to his face and another that shows a copy of Jackman’s People’s Sexiest Man Alive issue.
