Did Ryan Reynolds Just Reignited The Feud With Hugh Jackman?
Ryan Reynolds is one of the most popular actors in Hollywood at the moment. He’s also an actor who since the Deadpool has been up to many pranks and shenanigans.
Hot off the release of his latest teaser trailer for next year’s Deadpool 2, Reynolds made jokes about everything and everyone, his past films, his wife and other celebrities, but all in good humour. This week’s fun was all about his pseudo-feud with X-Men star Hugh Jackman. Jackman’s currently out and about promoting his final venture into the X-Men Universe, Logan. During a stop in China Jackman tweeted a photo with his fans captioning ‘Thanks for an amazing visit Beijing!’ to which Reynolds responded with ‘Pretty sure those are protesters.’
The two actors have worked together before in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine and have had a ‘feud’ ever since. In real life, the two are like family. Reynolds has recently been speaking out about the difficulty it took to get his movie Deadpool to screens; “There is a shocking amount of parallels, a set of pleasing symmetries between Deadpool and myself.”
“I feel I can always channel that character and bring it to life in ways that I couldn’t have had with other roles. We got 47 separate rejection letters before the film got made. I think there’s something to be said about perseverance and the long gain. I felt like that’s something I really want to challenge with respect to Deadpool, so I just never gave up on it. One way or the other, we ended up making that dream come true.”
In an interview with GQ, he stressed to the interviewer just how important his relationship with wife Blake Lively is. “I never wanted to reveal too much. Even now I’m a little nervous because you’re having a conversation with somebody, and you could say something that either (a) just exposes your utter explosive ignorance about any given subject or (b) could be misinterpreted.”
“I used to just shut down, like, ‘Okay, only crack jokes and cover the subject at hand in a very kind of cursory way’. But I’ve embraced the fact that I’m smart. I’ve embraced the fact that I’m an idiot. I’ve embraced the fact that I’m funny. If this were ﬁve, four, three years ago even, I wouldn’t have been like, ‘Come on into my home, meet the baby’. It’s all human life. Take it or leave it.”
“My baseline’s pretty good, I think, aside from a few pretty intense anxiety hiccoughs over my life. I wouldn’t say I’m quantifiably happier now than I was when I lived in my shithole studio apartment on Wilcox in Hollywood. I’m also old enough to understand what’s an illusion and what’s real, and that it’s foolish to try to think that I can control anything from here on out.”
