Hugh Jackman Reveals What He Would Get 'Rival' Ryan Reynolds For His Birthday

Hugh Jackman is opening up about his “feud” with Ryan Reynolds in a hilarious new way.

While speaking on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show this week, the 51-year-old actor opened up about Ryan and his wife, Blake Lively‘s, upcoming birthdays.

“Blake is amazing, I don’t know how that happened but still she is flawless,” Hugh says, poking fun at her marriage to Ryan.

He added, “To think of what she’s had to put up with. Let’s just think COVID with Ryan. It’s amazing.”

As for her birthday, which is today (August 25), Hugh says that he just hopes “more than anything that she is on her own with her friends just really enjoying the day.”

While speaking about birthdays, Hugh also imagined what he would get Ryan for his upcoming 44th in October, if anything.

“The first thing that came to mind was a game we used to play as kids, did you ever play that game, we used to call it Ring and Run. Where you go knock on someone’s door and run away. What’s that called here?…. Ding Dong Ditch,” Hugh recalls. “So of course my older brother took it to the next level and when you came to open the door there was a package that was on fire. The package was filled with various amounts of dog poo from the neighborhood. So you would stamp it out.”

He adds, “That’s the first thing that came to mind. Something like that, Ding Dong Ditch. Just for fun…Funny.”

If you missed it, Hugh reacted to his recent Emmy nomination with a fun dig at Ryan. See it here!
