In case you hadn’t noticed, Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds are not supported. But show it in a humourous form. The next time you see Deadpool pay attention to the thousand jokes that makes Ryan on Wolverine. LOL. Beyond the rivalry of the characters, the discussion is personal and finally Hugh confesses that it all began with the friendship that he has Scarlett Johansson, who was married to Reynolds. Men are so basic…

Yes, before Blake Lively, the actor Deadpool he was married to the gorgeous Scarlett Johansson. In an interview with the Daily Beast Thursday, Jackman said that although he could not remember the exact reason why he started his enmity, he said that he had something to do with Johansson: Scarlett and Ryan were married from 2008 to 2011.

“It has been so long now … God, this is a classic sign that your enmity has been extended too, where you don’t even know why or how it started!” Jackman began. “I met him in Wolverine, and I used to scan it because I was a good friend of Scarlett”, he explained.

The actors agreed on the set of X-Men Origins: Wolverine and they worked together playing Wolverine and Deadpool respectively. It was 2008 and “Scarlett had just been married to Ryan, so when he came to the set, he said: “Hey, you’d better have on your best behavior here, friend, because I’m looking “and we started to talk to us that way,” said Hugh.

Since then, have not ceased to make jokes passive-aggressive, since ventanearse in TV programs, jokes on Instagram, to teasing on Twitter. But rather it is a rivalry “friendly”, if that exists. It does not mean that it really will fight for Scarlett Johansson, it was only a pretext to bother each other.

Jackman said that their rivalry has “intensified” over the years after that Ryan performed Deadpool and that since then, it’s more of “five hours a day” thinking about ways of playing a prank on Reynolds.

One of the best moments of this rivalry/friendship, is when Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal tricked Ryan. In 2018, Jackman joined with Jake in order to trick the actor into believing that he was invited to a Christmas party. Unfortunately for the star, who was wearing a festive knit sweater and green and red with a gold bow, all the others in the party were wearing casual clothes.
