Ryan Reynolds has got to be the celebrity world’s biggest troll. And nobody – not even wife Blake Lively – is safe from his online antics.

The Deadpool star has baited Blake on several occasions and is currently indulging his longstanding battle with actor Hugh Jackman. Here’s a look at some of their showdowns – and other stars Ryan trolled over the years.


According to Page Six, theduo’s fake feud first started in 2008 after they met on the set of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, where Ryan stars as Deadpool and Hugh plays the character of Wolverine. While the pair share an epic bromance, they’ve taken jabs at each other over recent years. Check out some of their most memorable moments.

Ryan imitates Hugh

Donning a full face of burn prosthetics makeup from his Deadpool character, Ryan imitated Hugh in a clip from 2015 in which he can be heard encouraging followers to vote for him as People magazine’s sexiest man alive, an award that they both won, Hugh in 2008 and Ryan in 2010.

Hugh accuses Ryan of being a stalker

“Seriously, Mate. You’ve got to stop following me. SECURITY!!!” Hugh captioned a picture of him and Ryan smiling with their arms around each other in 2016.

A truce

In January 2019, the pair called for a ceasefire where they both agreed to help each other create commercials for their gin and coffee companies. But while Ryan stuck to his end of the deal, Hugh used the moment to get back at him.

Ryan takes a shot at Hugh on his wedding anniversary

In April 2020, Hugh celebrated his 24th anniversary with his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, and, of course, Ryan saw this as a perfect opportunity to take a jab at his friend.

“Hang in there Debs,” Ryan cheekily commented on a post shared by Hugh in celebration of the occasion.

Drumroll . . .

To mark his buddy’s 44th birthday this year, Hugh shared a throwback snap of a younger Ryan playing a drum set.

“Happy birthday lil' buddy,” he captioned it.

Blake Lively

They’re one of Hollywood’s most-loved couples and proud parents to three daughters, but the pair are also unafraid to mercilessly troll each other on social media.

Birthday trolling

Every year the lovebirds poke fun at each other on their birthdays by sharing funny snaps.

In 2019, Ryan wished a heavily pregnant Blake a happy 32nd birthday with a series of less-than-flattering pictures via Instagram.

And for Ryan’s 44th birthday this year, Blake followed suit with their trolling tradition.

“1) Who is the lost soul that selects birthday PIE. 2) What ANIMAL eats their cake (pie) without first blowing out the candles. @vancityreynolds that's who. Happy Birthday. I honestly can't believe we're still married,” she captioned the post.

Blake trolls Ryan after voting

In 2020, the Canadian-born star voted in the US for the first time and, true to form, Blake used this as an opportunity to poke fun at her bae.

“It was Ryan’s first time. He was understandably scared. It all happened so fast. Like, REALLY fast. He wept. I pretended to weep. Then he called all his friends,” she jokingly captioned a picture of them holding their envelopes for absentee voting.


Following the royal family’s launch of Buckingham Palace Gin earlier this year, Ryan jokingly celebrated its anticipated arrival by sending a bottle to legendary Beatle Paul.

“Pre-ordered,” the star captioned the fake receipt.


Recently Chris (37) hit back at the actor after Ryan got his mother, Tammy Reynolds, to call the Thor star “everyone’s least favourite Australian”, in a video.

Chris called on his friend, Dan Théman, whom he called his “father”, to retaliate.

“Why don’t you tell him what you think of him . . .  all the things that we discussed,” Chris can be heard saying trying to convince Dan to speak.

 “You said the worst actor, the least favourite Canadian in the whole world.”
