Hugh Jackman, Ryan Reynolds 'truce' strained over gin ad


Nothing compares to the viciousness of the fake feud between Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel, but Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman do their best to score second place with a faux rivalry.

Reynolds posted on Instagram on January 31, writing: "As a gesture of goodwill, I'm gonna make a handsome ad for his company, Laughing Man Coffee". The commercial ended. The whole advertisement was quite complimentary to Hugh - and apparently, the older actor was shocked.

We then see the actor's advert, which shows stunning landscapes over the plantations where Jackman's coffee is made.

But the bad blood boiled again in a new commercial they collaborated on for their respective brands: Aviation American Gin for Reynolds, 42, and Laughing Man Coffee Company for Jackman, 50. "The loving and caring man who created Laughing Man. Make every cup count".

"Hugh could be behind such a Hugh-roic company", Ryan asked, then chuckled.

You know, I think there might be a samll part of me that feels bad for Reynolds, who obviously went to great lengths to create a genuine and flattering ad for Jackman's Laughing Man coffee. My friend, Hugh Jackman.


"It cost a million dollars", Reynolds adds.

"Wow, man that's really professional", a stunned Jackman replied.

In Jackman's video, the actor sits on a couch with a bottle of Aviation gin on a coffee table in front of him.

Then after a short pause, he goes on: "The gin is pretty great though".

Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman decided to make ads for one another to make up for all the insults that have flown around on Twitter. Reynolds plays up the heroic person behind the company, Hugh Jackman, and even highlights that portions of the profits go to charitable causes.

Then, to add insult to injury, he opens the prized Aviation Gin bottle only to let it pour out mercilessly on the table. I'm just kidding. I falt-out live for this on-going playfulness between the Wolverine from down under and Canada's Merc with a Mouth.
