Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds are each entertaining on screen, but the actors’ fake feud off screen may truly be their best work yet. The two developed a friendship when they costarred in 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” and they’ve been poking fun at each other ever since. Whether they’re roasting each other during interviews or simply throwing some shade on social media, we always get a laugh over their fake rivalry. Though they briefly called a truce in February 2019 to support each other’s companies, it didn’t last long.
So, just how did the “feud” start? Well, if you ask Jackman, it was all Reynolds’s fault. During an interview on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” in April 2020, Jackman joked that Reynolds started it due to his “insatiable need for attention.” However, they did put their “differences” aside to work together for the All In Challenge, and they’re reuniting again in “Deadpool 3,” set to release in 2024, so at least that’s something.
Jackman is even hanging out with Reynolds during his downtime… well, pictures of Reynolds that is. On March 19, he shared a photo of himself holding a coloring book dedicated to the “Free Guy” actor on Instagram Reynolds swiftly responded in his Instagram Story, where he wrote, “He lives to colour in the pretty pictures.”
