Hugh Jackman is known as the “nicest guy” in Hollywood, according to various the Irish Examiner and his colleagues. But when he got too close with Emily Blunt at a Variety event on Saturday, John Krasinki told Jackman to back off.
Krasinki was not pleased when the Wolverine got cozy with his wife, BroBible reports. Krasinki tweeted, probably only half joking, “Eeeeeeasy Hugh… not sure this is what @Variety meant with #ActorsonActors….Don’t make me think I can hurt you.”

As BroBible pointed out, Krasinski isn’t so much the soft guy we know as Jim from The Office ever since he bulked up for Jack Ryan last year.

Ryan Reynolds apparently couldn’t resist joining in the trolling fun. He tweeted, “This is a call to action. This man must be stopped.”

Reynolds and Jackman have roasted each other in the past in a string of hilarious tweets and videos on social media.
For example, when Jackman posted an adorable picture with his wife Deborra-lee Furness saying how much he loved her after 22 years of marriage, Reynolds tweeted, “I gave this 3 months. Tops. I was wrong.”

Jackman fired back, tagging Reynolds on his Instagram account saying, “Seriously mate. You’ve got to stop following me. SECURITY!!!!!”
The bromantic trolling goes back years. An Instagram clip from 2016 shows Reynolds dressed up as Deadpool, singing in the background to interrupt Jackman’s heartfelt birthday message to his fans.
Jackman got sweet revenge by making fun of Reynolds for getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, delivering a candid message from “Reynolds” himself.
People are pretty obsessed with Jackman and Reynolds’ bromance. It looks like the jokes aren’t going to stop anytime soon.
OMG! Hilarious 🤣🤣. Although I think it needs to be addressed that Hugh is in a dressing gown and Deadpool is in his bed! 🙈🤣🤣. Can’t overlook that!! Xx
