Hugh Jackman Says He’s Preparing For A ‘Permanent Truce’ With Ryan Reynolds (VIDEO)
This flame war could get extinguished! Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman's faux feud is on hold as the two actors team up for a charity benefit. Now, the Wolverine star claims that he's willing to make their truce become permanent.
Their trolling feud has been going on for over a decade and consists mainly of online banter and teasing each other much to the amusement of fans.
Earlier this week, the two announced that they would set a truce to team up for the All In Challenge, a contest that raises money for organizations that feed people in need.
In their video announcement, Jackman declared that they will "stop our feud for one day" in order to surprise one lucky fan with a lemonade stand in their neighbourhood.
This is one of the few times the two fathers have settled their ongoing trolling war and it could be the last.
Jackman recently appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden and was asked by the talk show host about his relationship with the Deadpool star.
He told Corden, "I am prepared for this to be a permanent truce."
"But I want to be clear. Truce is not friendship," Jackman explained to a laughing Corden. "The truce is not getting together. Blake [Lively] is welcome to come over any time. We love her. But no Ryan, no friendship. Just a truce, that's it, I don't want to speak to you again."
He shared that a charity benefit is the only thing that would get him to call a truce, especially because they tried to start one a year ago but it really didn’t work out.
The 51-year-old explained that their rivalry began because of Reynolds and "his insatiable need for attention", adding that it started when he called out Jackman and started an online petition to get him to come back as Wolverine.
He also jokingly described the Vancouver born actor as "like a dog with a bone" and "gum on my shoe, and I say that in the nicest possible way."
Just last week, Jackman was also asked about his "ongoing online flame war" with Reynolds during an interview with The Daily Beast.
He said that their trolling began back when Reynolds was married to Scarlett Johansson who Jackman was good friends with.
"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," Jackman shared.
You can help support the All In Challenge by entering the contest on their website for a chance to win and you just might be able to witness their truce become permanent.
