A truce has been called, albeit a temporary one. On Monday afternoon, actors Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman announced that they will press pause on their ongoing social media feud and work together to raise money for coronavirus relief efforts.

The two released a video on YouTube on Monday in which they proclaimed a temporary end to their years-long war. Reynolds eloquently discussed the truce during the short video clip.

"The Jackmans and Reynolds have been mortal enemies for as long as there have been Jackmans and Reynolds-es...es... For one day and one day only, we've agreed to agree to not disagree. And only a pandemic could make that happen."

Reynolds and Jackman initially met on the set of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, with Hugh Jackman in the titular role and Ryan Reynolds playing Deadpool for the first time. According to INSIDER, the friendly feud started after Reynolds married his first wife, Scarlett Johansson, who was also a good friend of Jackman's. After some ribbing from Jackman about his recent marriage, Reynolds retaliated with taunts on social media. Their battles only escalated when the two actors each founded their own businesses -- Jackman's Laughing Man Coffee Company and Reynolds' Aviation Gin.

Reynolds and Jackman aren't the only celebrities to start their own All In Challenge to raise funding for coronavirus relief efforts. Last week, Deadline reported that Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro started their own campaign, offering those who donate a chance to win a walk-on role in their upcoming movie, Killers of the Flower Moon, directed by Martin Scorsese.
