AceShowbiz –Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman have put an end to their friendly feud after agreeing to front commercials for one another’s beverage brands.
The two actors, who worked together on 2009’s “X-Men Origins: Wolverine“, have been engaged in a hilarious rivalry ever since Jackman announced he was hanging up his claws as the titular Marvel mutant following 2017’s “Logan“, even though Reynolds has tried his best to convince the Australian action man to reprise the character one more time for a feature in a future “Deadpool” movie.
In December (18), Ryan joked the social media battle had now become a full-on “war”, but it seems they have managed to call a truce – and it’s all in the name of marketing.
Ryan took to Twitter on Thursday, January 31, to share the news with fans, revealing he will be fronting a promo for Jackman’s charity coffee brand, which supports farmers and their communities.
“Official truce with @realhughjackman!” Ryan declared beside a black-and-white snap of the pals holding hands. “As a gesture of goodwill, I’m gonna make a beautiful ad for his company, Laughing Man Coffee. Can’t wait!”
Hugh shared the same image and explained his intention to shoot a commercial for Ryan’s new gin company.
“Official truce! I’m going to make the most amazing ad for Aviation Gin,” he shared. “And, look forward to seeing what @Vancityreynolds comes up with in return.”
It’s not known what prompted the two stars to put their light-hearted, insult-filled dispute aside, but over the holidays, Jackman even roped Jake Gyllenhaal into the running joke to play a prank on Reynolds after making plans to meet up for a festive celebration – and telling Ryan every guest had to wear an ugly Christmas sweater.
However, he ended up being the only one to buy into the supposed theme of the party.
“These f**king a**holes said it was a sweater party,” he captioned photos of himself looking glum in his red and green sweater, which featured a large gold bow on the front, as Hugh and Jake stood on either side of him laughing and high-fiving.
