Ryan Reynolds and John Krasinski roast Hugh Jackman over cozy photo with Emily Blunt
Emily Blunt has starred in a lot of great movies, from the clever sci-fi thriller Live Die Repeat to the terrifying horror film A Quiet Place (Shhhh!) Now she's starring in the musical fantasy Mary Poppins Returns, a sequel to the original classic that came out 54 years ago. Fighting a war, running from monsters, playing a magical nanny - is there anything Emily Blunt can't do? Yes. Date you. Because she's married to John Krasinski, aka 'Jim from The Office.'
Sadly, the stunning actress is taken, but it's okay to harbor a crush. Just be warned: If you're caught on camera flirting with her, Krasinski might call you out. Recently Hugh Jackman and Emily Blunt interviewed each other for Variety's feature, Actors on Actors. While appearing on the red carpet, they posed together for a photo, which the Wolverine actor shared on Twitter. "Had the pleasure of chatting with the amazing EMILY BLUNT today," wrote Jackman.
It looks pretty innocent, right? Well, Krasinski replied to the tweet by uploading another picture of them from the red carpet. In this photo, the actors look much more cozy, with Jackman appearing to snuggle up to Blunt. Krasinski joked, "Eeeeeeasy Hugh... not sure this is what @Variety meant with #ActorsonActors... Don’t make me think I can hurt you."
It's too bad that's not what Variety meant with "Actors on Actors," because that sounds like much more interesting series. And I don't know if the self-deprecating joke at the end works. Jackman hung up his adamantium claws, retiring as the Marvel superhero Wolverine. That means the 50-year-old actor has no obligation to stay in shape. Meanwhile, Krasinski, 39, is starring in Amazon's action series, Jack Ryan, and appears to be pretty jacked. Ten years ago, Jackman would win a fight against Krasinski any day, but now I'm not so sure.
Anyway, Ryan Reynolds decided to weigh in on #CozyGate, because of course he did. The Deadpool star is one of the funniest celebrities on Twitter, and enjoys trolling Jackman. Recently the Greatest Showman actor celebrated 22 years of marriage, and shared a heartfelt tribute to his wife on Twitter. To which Reynolds responded, "I gave this 3 months. Tops. I was wrong." The Afterwards, Jackman clapped back by giving Reynolds advice on how to be sexy. And now Reynolds replied to Krasinski and Jackman's tweets, writing, "This is a call to action. This man must be stopped."
We might never get to see Hugh Jackman reprise his role as Wolverine to team up with Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool, or team up with John Krasinski's Jim Halpert from The Office. But at least we got to see an amusing interaction between them on Twitter, and that's just as good, right? No? I guess they need to make that crossover movie then.
Unfortunately, Emily Blunt is not on Twitter or Instagram, so we don't know what her response is. (I guess that's the only other thing she can't do: social media!)
