Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have a "long-standing feud."
But in reality, they’re actually best pals. They constantly roast each other, the way only real buds can, and it seems pretty fundamental to their friendship.
It’s been going on for quite some time.
The two are constantly exchanging barbs on social media, in interviews, at private parties, and even in their movies.
Recently, things had started escalating to a point of mutually assured destruction.
Deadpool and Wolverine going head-to-head only means one thing… a fight to the death.
So the two called a truce.
And the world could, once again, breathe easy.
First, Reynolds extended the olive branch.
To prove his act of peace was in good faith, the actor promised to make an ad for Jackman’s company, Laughing Man Coffee.
A few minutes later, Jackman returned the gesture.
For his part of the truce, Jackman claimed he would deliver an ad for Reynolds’ company, Aviation Gin.
Naturally, everyone was dying to see these ads.
Was this truce for real, or were the actors pulling another prank? Maybe this time on their fans?
Jackman insisted he was hard at work.
The commercials would be a testament to their friendship, so obviously they both needed time to get them right.
At least now they were agreeing on something.
The two assured fans they’d make good on the promise, and we all waited with bated breath.
Finally, they unveiled the long-awaited commercials that would renew their bond.
Well, that was the plan anyway. But things didn’t go as smoothly as hoped.
The official unveiling video begins with so much potential.
Reynolds excitedly admits that he’s been working “24/7” on his ad for Laughing Man Coffee, and can’t wait to share his ad with Jackman and the world.
Who knew a coffee commercial could be so beautiful?
Reynolds’ commercial is visually stunning, and basically a love letter to Jackman and the philanthropic work he does through his company.
It’s also secretly hilarious.
Reynolds sneaks in some subliminal messaging by not-so-subtly working in the name “Hugh” about a dozen times, because he’s Ryan Reynolds and nothing he does is ever 100% serious.
The commercial earns a stunned silence from Jackman.
It’s immediately clear he was not expecting such a heartfelt effort from Reynolds, who then reveals with pride that the ad cost him $1 million.
That’s when Jackman starts backpedaling.
All of a sudden, his commercial isn’t “quite ready” and needs “color correcting,” but Reynolds isn’t hearing it, and to Jackman’s dismay, the ad starts to roll.
And it’s a trainwreck.
Jackman’s advertisement dives right in with a cutting, “Ryan Reynolds is a complete and total f***ing a**hole”– a far cry from the flowery sentiments expressed in the expensive, handcrafted piece of art that was Reynolds’ ad.
“The gin’s pretty great though.”
Jackman seems like he’s about to deliver a compliment but immediately undercuts it by reaching for a bottle of Reynolds’ Aviation Gin, opening it, and letting its contents pour unceremoniously on the table and floor with a satisfied smirk. Welp.
So much for that truce.
Back in the studio, the 2 look gutted. Jackman half-heartedly offers, “I didn’t think the truce was actually real” before the screen cuts to black.
Reynolds’ official take on the dumpster fire?
Though short, the actor’s statement conveys volumes of hurt and humiliation.
What did Jackman have to say for himself?
The mean-spirited instigator shows no remorse, which can only mean the truce is officially over.
You can’t help but feel a little bad for Reynolds.
Even though this means more hilarious feud content.
But it certainly seems like Jackman is on a roll right now...
And he clearly doesn’t sympathize with Reynolds in any shape or form. Last year’s People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” was announced and after musician John Legend took the title, Jackman decided this was the perfect opportunity to call out his best bud.
Jackman won the "sexiest man" award way back in 2008...
And Reynolds received the title in 2010.
Jackman wanted to make it very clear to his followers that he is a former-title holder...
So he took to his Instagram to post a video.
Of course, the dynamic duo feature in the video.
The brief video features Jackman and Reynolds walking on a soundstage, with Jackman telling Reynolds he doesn’t want to wear a blue hoodie that he’s unzipping, when something falls out.
A magazine falls out of his jacket...
Jackman swiftly picks it up and shows it to Reynolds, who says, “‘Oh, it’s your People’s Sexiest Man Alive issue.”
People can be heard laughing behind the camera...
When Jackman asks if he’s seen it, Reynolds says, ‘I have an issue somewhere, I have a few of yours. Usually, I cut the eyes out or the mouth, but that’s just me.”
A very clever reference...
Reynolds was, indeed, referring to Deadpool where his character uses the photo from Jackman’s 2008 “Sexiest Man Alive” issue as a mask, where he cut out the eyes and mouth.
Jackman is clearly smug over the situation...
The video ends as an overly excited Jackman holds up his magazine for the camera as an extra reminder… just in case anybody missed the point.
So, with Jackman gaining the upper hand, Reynolds knew he would have to kick things up a notch.
And when Jackman posted a soppy anniversary post dedicated to his wife, Reynolds knew it was time to pounce.
The Wolverine star posted this photograph to his Instagram:
And his caption was cute as hell. He wrote: “These 24 years have been the best of my life! And, as far as I can see, we keep getting better. I love you Debs with every fiber of my soul. Happy anniversary. #24.”
But instead of gushing over the couple like everyone else was, Reynolds commented this:
I guess the truce really meant nothing at all, did it? We’re here for all this hilarious content though. If there’s one person that knows something about feuds, it’s Eminem. Keep scrolling to see some of his most savage battles of all time…
