In Ryan Reynold’s latest movie, “Deadpool 2,” the actor pokes fun at many Hollywood stars, notably, Hugh Jackman. However, the actor supposedly did him a favor and gave him plenty of warning beforehand.
During a chat with Us Weekly at the film’s NYC premiere, Reynolds said he definitely had to have a chat with Hugh Jackman before throwing “him over the coals.”
Reynolds went on to explain that he would be making fun of him a little bit, but “loves him.” The “Deadpool 2” star admitted part of the reason for the forewarning was Hugh is “bigger” than him.
However, fortunately for Jackman, he isn’t the only person to be made fun of in the latest movie, so he can take solace in that fact. It’s nothing personal.
In the latest flick, Beyonce and Matthew McConaughey are also the targets of jabs. Reynolds added most of the humor isn’t mean or based on fact; it’s simply “without teeth.”
Reynolds and his wife, Blake Lively, were on the red carpet together and took a few photographs with each other. Ryan held Lively’s hand as they basked in the camera lights.
As you may know, Ryan shares two daughters with Blake: James, and Ines, who are 3 and 19-months-old respectively. However, for the most part, Ryan and Lively don’t like to talk about their children with reporters, as it’s a threat to their privacy.
Many other celebrities do the same thing, including Bradley Cooper, who made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show recently and asked the host not to inquire about his recently born son. However, in the nature of showbusiness, Ellen asked him anyway.
