Hugh Jackman To Ryan Reynolds After Fake Feud Ends: "Everybody Hates You"

The rivalry has come to a head and, for now, a close.


Helping close out 2020 with a rare bit of closure, Hugh Jackman has been named the winner in an ongoing and over-the-top war against Ryan Reynolds in who could raise the most for charity. Since the competition began in November, Sam's Club clocked purchases of Laughing Man coffee (which supports coffee farming communities) for Jackman and Aviation American Gin (which supports the SickKids Foundation) for Reynolds. According to a video tweeted by Reynolds--which he says he "quite literally" has "a legal obligation to post"--it has been announced that Jackman is the winner.

While, yes, the "war" was for a good cause, basically the video above is a long-burning fuse for a quick and pretty funny joke. Sam's Club CEO Kath McLay gives the Australian actor a Skype call to congratulate him on emerging victorious, and then mentions she's dreading calling Reynolds next to deliver the bad news.

Jackman won't hear of it. Telling McLay she's already done more than enough work, he offers to let Reynolds know the results. Then, a moment later, he's calling Reynolds--who he has labeled "Bryan" on Skype--and this is his entire call: "You lost the Sam's Club thing. I won. Everyone hates you. Bye!"

This is hardly the first fake feud the actors have engaged in. Earlier this year, they engaged in similar shenanigans for COVID-19 relief.
