Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds have been "feuding" on social media since 2017 and show no signs of slowing down. In fact, during a recent interview, Jackman suggested that others should follow in his lead by poking fun at his fellow actor.

While speaking to Fox News, Jackman, 52, said that he loves going back and forth with Reynolds, 44, on the internet and spotlight one of his latest disses.

As some may have seen, Jackman recently pointed out that Reynolds was left out of an industry event.

As some may know, Jackman and Reynolds met on the set of X-Men Origins: Wolverine after Reynolds married Jackman's friend, actress Scarlett Johansson.

"I met him back on ‘Wolverine,’ and I used to ream him because I was very close friends with Scarlett [Johansson], and Scarlett had just married Ryan, so when he came on set I was like, ‘Hey, you better be on your best behavior here, pal, because I’m watching,’" Jackman recalled in April 2020.

"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," he added.
