Ryan Reynolds Gets Back At Hugh Jackman With Christmas Jumper Prank

What goes around comes around, as the old saying goes, and Ryan Reynolds has got his own back on pal Hugh Jackman.

Last year, Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal decided to trick prolific prankster Reynolds with the old classic 'party dress code' joke, but this time it's Ryan's turn for revenge.

He fell hook line and sinker for it as well, turning up to an A-list get together with an OTT Christmas jumper on, while everyone else was dressed normally.

Reynolds, as we all know, can't be taken down that easily, and has now pulled the exact same stunt on Hugh Jackman. Sharing a photo on Twitter, Hugh joked: "I can't believe I agreed to wear the matching underwear too."

In true dad joke style, Reynolds replied, saying:

The pair have a long history of top bants, which all got started back in April 2018, when Jackman tweeted a video of himself trying to post a birthday message to somebody from a hotel room.

The problem was that Deadpool himself was lying on the bed behind and made it pretty difficult...

Then, in October, Ryan Reynolds wished Hugh a bit of a NSFW birthday message.

Hugh Jackman, was out on tour at the time, performing songs from The Greatest Showman, Les Misérables and more. Not only is he one of the world's best actors, he's also got a pretty good voice too.

One part of the show, recently shared to YouTube, sees the actor ending a section landing in his well-known Wolverine pose, much to the delight of his audience. In the clip, he then makes reference to the good-natured 'feud', jokng: "Let's see Ryan Reynolds do that."

He then adds: "By the way, do not post that, I'll have like three million tweets from him in the next ten seconds."

Reynolds, of course, was devastated at the burn, and sent him a video. Wearing a party hat, the actor looked all dejected while filming himself.

He says: "Hey Hugh, I was just going to wish you happy birthday, then I saw what you said. In a word: hurtful."

He leaves the shot then returns with a dramatic rendition version of the standard happy birthday song, proving that he is in fact just as perfectly talented in all aspects of performance as Jackman.

Ending the song with a high note that he hits in perfect fashion, Ryan suddenly begins raging, as he shouts: "And I'm not even f***ing professionally trained Jackman, you piece of s***."

His hand gesture is blurred out but I think we can make a fair assumption that he wasn't giving his pal the peace sign.

Who knows what they'll get up to next, eh?
