Hugh Jackman Gets the Last Laugh Over Ryan Reynolds in Online Feud

Freda Brock | 07 February, 2019, 01:59

The playful rivalry between Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman has gone on for months now and there doesn't appear to be an end in sight. Unfortunately, only one actor ended up sticking to their word. Jackman explains that the two have declared "a truce" over their recent spats on social media and, as a show of good faith, decided to make commercials for Aviation Gin (owned by Reynolds) and Laughing Man Coffee (owned by Jackman).

On Feb. 6, Deadpool actor Ryan Reynolds, 42, and Wolverine star Hugh Jackman, 50, made a decision to end their social media "feud" once and for all. He tried to stall, claiming his piece was "almost finished" and still needed some "colour correcting", but Reynolds was adamant and called for the clip to roll.

The actors' long-running feud stems back to 2015, when Jackman posted a video on his Instagram of Reynolds impersonating him - Australian accent, and all - in his Deadpool makeup.

Reynolds put together a sentimental clip about Jackman's coffee company, Laughing Man, which allows farmers in developing countries to sell their products to consumers in the United States.

"Hey everyone, Ryan and I recently called it a truce in our social media war and we promised to make ads for each other", Jackman says in the beginning of the video. Ryan bragged that the video cost $1 million to make. "The loving and caring man who created Laughing Man. Make every cup count". In the ad, the Deadpool star insinuates both the coffee and his friend are superheroes.

"Hugh could be behind such a Hugh-roic company?" "I'm not quite ready to show mine yet", Jackman told Reynolds and he replied, "Let's just roll it". Looking down the barrel of the camera, Jackman says: "Ryan Reynolds is a total fucking arsehole". When they attempted to prove that they were actually going to support each other from now on, Reynolds played along. "The gin's pretty great though". Jackman then tips over the bottle of alcohol and watches as it pours out across the table.

Ryan is floored as Hugh admitted he didn't think the truce was real, and as his frenemy walked off he added: 'Say hi to Blake for me...and the kids!'
