“The Two Guys and a Girl” lead actor and the “Logan” star, who have co-worked in X-Men movies, have been repeatedly taunting each other whether be it on social media handles or interviews till date. And the secret behind such-year-old implication came out late this time when the Wolverine player chronicled its provenance to “The Avengers star”, Scarlett Johansson attributing her marriage to Ryan Reynolds in the early phase of 2008 to 2011.
The Black Widow star contributed to the prolonged dispute
Both the co-performers seem entangled in the compromising jab over the period, that stood prominent on Instagram handles inimitably. If you consider the hysterical prods looming over their companies that has led to Ryan hunting on Hugh’s recent marriage anniversary, it’s been all fascinating throughout.
While The Greatest Showman actor was approached for the first time asking how the amusing jibe had all begun, he couldn’t exactly recall its origin but then slowly shed light on his memory, emphasizing. ‘How did it start? It’s gone back so long now…’. Hugh brooded, continuing further- ‘God, this is a classic sign where your feud has gone too long, where you don’t even know why or how it started!’
From being pals to rivals: Hugh and Ryan
The “Les Miserables” star later on reported to Daily Beast, saying: ‘I met him back on Wolverine, and I used to ream him because I was very close friends with Scarlett, and Scarlett had just married Ryan, so when he came on set I was like, “Hey, you better be on your best behaviour here, pal, because I’m watching,” and we started ribbing each other that way, and then it all escalated with the Deadpool thing and him calling me out and trying to manipulate me through social media to do what he wanted.’
The tedious prod was never played down
On the flip side, the “6 Underground” star, Ryan affronted to take a hostage over the weekend on the “Prisoners” actor’s 24th wedding ceremony addressing Jackman’s wife Deborra-Lee Furness to “hang in there”. The joke was then majorly played by enquiring Hugh in the gradual steps if he had any plan to serve a withering comeback in the recent times in order to pay off every boomerang.
And that carved out an amusing reply: ‘I try to limit it to five hours a day, planning retribution. I’ve found in the past that it just gets unhealthy if it’s more than five hours of obsessing over how to get Ryan Reynolds. But five hours is good and healthy and keeps me strong and ready.’
Now, the fandom is merely waiting for the historical reprisal to decide upon the reckoning hour.
