An eye for an eye! Seems like Hugh Jackman, who was mocked by Ryan Reynolds in the hit movie Deadpool, is intent on paying him back the same way.
Jackman, who is the 40-year-old actor’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine co-star, took to his Instagram handle to mock his pal, wearing a Ryan Reynolds cardboard mask to deliver his cheeky tirade of insults.
Writing next to his short video, Jackman wrote, “@VanCityReynolds asked me to post this 100% real video by him on being honoured with a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame today.”
The audacious Australian began his teasing “tribute” video saying, “You may remember me from such things as People magazine’s 2010 Sexiest Man Alive or the 12th best DC Comics movie Green Lantern.
Who would have thought just three years after getting a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, I would be getting a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame?”
In the movie, Reynolds says, “Whose b*** s did I have to fondle to get my very own movie?’ I can’t tell you his name, but it rhymes with ‘Polverine.’ And let me tell you, he’s got a nice pair of smooth criminals down under.”
In his video clip, the 48-year-old actor then went on rhetorically, “How could a guy who failed his high school drama class be this talented?”
“I have no answer for that. But to quote my favourite actor in the world, the great Australian Hugh Jackman, who, by the way, was People’s Sexiest Man Alive way before me, Americans are the most generous country on the planet,” he continued with a little self aggrandising reference.
Ending with a little toilet humour, the Real Steel actor rounded up, “So, thank you, America, and feel free to urinate on my section of the sidewalk” and then let the mask slip to reveal his true identity.
The Green Lantern star was honoured with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday and was joined by wife Blake Lively and their two daughters.
