Ryan Reynolds Reignites Twitter Feud With Hugh Jackman Over 'Logan'
Ryan Reynolds is at it again.
I'm not talking about acting and making films - though he has just dropped the Deadpool 2 trailer ahead of its release in March 2018. I'm talking about Ryan Reynolds just being Ryan Reynolds, the ever-reliable bastion of A* banter.
In the past we've seen him crack jokes about his wife, deal with boundary-crossing fans that most celebrities choose to ignore with good humour and wit, among other relatable stuff. It's why we love him.
This week, it's all about him and his pseudo-feud with Aussie actor Hugh Jackman.
The star is out and about currently promoting the new and final Wolverine movie, Logan. During a stopover in China, Jackman posted a photo on his Twitter posing in front of fans.
"Thanks for an amazing visit Beijing!" he wrote.

His tweet has since racked up 85k likes.
The two worked on 2009's X-Men Origins: Wolverine and have been engaging in mock-arguments ever since.
In real life, Reynolds and Jackman appear tighter than most blood relatives.
Reynolds recently spoke about his Deadpool character, including the struggle to get it to screens.
He told Style: "There is a shocking amount of parallels, a set of pleasing symmetries between Deadpool and myself. I feel I can always channel that character and bring it to life in ways that I couldn't have had with other roles.
"We got 47 separate rejection letters before the film got made. I think there's something to be said about perseverance and the long gain. I felt like that's something I really want to challenge with respect to Deadpool , so I just never gave up on it. One way or the other, we ended up making that dream come true."
In a different interview with GQ, Reynolds also stressed the importance of his marriage to Blake Lively.
"I never wanted to reveal too much. Even now I'm a little nervous, because you're having a conversation with somebody, and you could say something that either (a) just exposes your utter explosive ignorance about any given subject or (b) could be misinterpreted. I used to just shut down, like, 'Okay, only crack jokes and cover the subject at hand in a very kind of cursory way'. But I've embraced the fact that I'm smart. I've embraced the fact that I'm an idiot. I've embraced the fact that I'm funny. If this were ﬁve, four, three years ago even, I wouldn't have been like, 'Come on in to my home, meet the baby'. It's all human life. Take it or leave it."
He continued: "My baseline's pretty good, I think, aside from a few pretty intense anxiety hiccoughs over my life. I wouldn't say I'm quantifiably happier now than I was when I lived in my shithole studio apartment on Wilcox in Hollywood. I'm also old enough to understand what's an illusion and what's real, and that it's foolish to try to think that I can control anything from here on out."
