Actors Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman are longtime friends, but they seem to try to outwit each other all the time. The duo's latest banter on social media left their fans in stitches. See the fans' reactions.
"The Wolverine" actor Hugh Jackman continued his mock feud with his friend, Ryan Reynolds. The pair have been charming social media users with their witty remarks at the expense of the other.
Jackman uploaded on Instagram a video of himself addressing "Gossip Girl" actress Blake Lively's new sparkling mixer line, Betty Buzz. Lively has been married to Reynold since 2012.
In the hilarious clip, Jackman shared how he and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, love Betty Buzz and its flavors. Before the 52-year-old Australian actor could praise Lively, he quickly said:
"This is not an ad, I'm not a paid spokesperson. I wasn't even asked to do this video."
The "X-Men" actor continued speaking highly of Lively, describing her as fun and creative. Towards the end of the video, he also described her as a "saint" for marrying Reynolds.
Jackman's clip earned more than 2 million likes and thousands of reactions. Meanwhile, Reynolds himself quickly chimed in and wrote, "This wasn't part of the deal when I bought this video on Cameo."
The "Logan" actor quipped that if trolling Reynolds is an Olympic sport, he could have won gold medals.
Fans in the comment section reacted to the duo's banter. One follower noted Jackman's video poking fun at Reynolds as funny, while another wrote that their "feud" would go on forever.
Both celebrities have amused their fans with their online rivalry for years. Jackson previously shared the feud began after Reynolds took on the role of Deadpool, a rival to his Wolverine character.
The funny pair first worked in 2009 for the "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" film, wherein Reynolds portrayed Wade Wilson, also known as Deadpool, opposite Jackman's role.
While working together, Jackman revealed he used to ream Reynolds because he was very close to Scarlett Johannson, who was previously married to the "Free Guy" actor from 2008 to 2011.
After Deadpool earned a stand-alone movie, Reynolds reportedly tried to convince Jackman to film with him since their characters frequently meet each other in Marvel comic books.
Even when they share light-hearted fights virtually, the dynamic duo is serious about their friendship. The dashing actors were previously spotted together grabbing lunch in New York City.
Poking fun at Reynolds online provides Jackman, who has already retired as Wolverine, with much entertainment. The "Logan" actor quipped that if trolling Reynolds is an Olympic sport, he could have won gold medals.
