Love is real! At least, it's real in Hollywood for one very special couple.
Hugh Jackman has been married to his wife Deb for 22 years; she's seen him as the sexy Wolverine, as the tough and grizzled Wolverine, and as the absurdly cartoon-y Wolverine. She's been through it all, and they're still together. He wrote their relationship a little tribute on Twitter for their anniversary, and it's extremely sweet:
I believe in life we need to see and truly be seen by the most important people in our lives. Deb, from day one, we had that. 22 years later ... it only gets deeper. You and the kids are the greatest gift I will ever receive. I love you a gazillion times around the world. pic.twitter.com/VsoDq4HxDw— Hugh Jackman (@RealHughJackman) April 11, 2018
Of course, you can't put something nice on the Internet without attracting the attention of Ryan Reynolds — if you're famous. Sorry, I know we all wish we could attract his attention, but I'm figuring you have to be able to invite him to a movie premiere, at the very least.
For example, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt are his parents ever since he saw them in A Quiet Place:
Being made a part of Reynolds' family is an honor, even if he will roast you unmercifully on Twitter, as his wife has discovered:
Obviously, Reynolds considers Hugh Jackman a part of the family, because he took the opportunity to joke about their special day:
I doubt Jackman is annoyed with Reynolds for joking about his marriage, because the two go way back. Before the current iteration of Deadpool who is so beloved, Reynolds appeared in Wolverine: Origins. He is the smart-mouthed Wade Wilson with the samurai swords we all know, but the movie took a very different direction after Wilson has his run-in with scientists who experiment on mutants.
The film was kind of a disaster, which Reynolds said he was expecting in an interview with GQ from 2016.
“At the beginning of that movie, that’s pretty close to Deadpool’s Wade Wilson — we’re in the ballpark with that guy," says Reynolds. "But it completely departed all canon and reason and he wound up being this abomination of Deadpool that was like Barakapool, with his mouth sewn shut and weird blades that came out of his hands and these strange tattoos and stuff like that.”
“That movie leaked online a month and a half before it was supposed to be released, and all these people saw it and were so upset about Deadpool,” he continued. “I was in Mexico with some friends, and I was called by the chief of the studio, who said, ‘You have to get on a plane right now. We need to re-shoot the very end of the movie.'
"I was such a douche, because I was like, ‘I told you so.’ I still get angry, because I remember saying, ‘You know, there are more Deadpool fans out there than you realize, and they’re not gonna be happy with this.’
"I was met with a plausible reason, which was: ‘We don’t have enough time to develop a proper Deadpool suit and make him the fully realized version of the comic, so we’re going with this.’ But I was like, ‘Then don’t do it at all!'”
Luckily, Reynolds got a do-over, and the new Deadpool is a huge success. Probably because he has a mouth? And people like it when Reynolds mouths off?
But the fans still have the Jackman/Reynolds pairing to ship:
Ooooh, you were SO close! 😂 But, seriously, this is just beautiful! I guess it really can happen. My faith is now restored...💕— Lori (@LoriNicole13) April 11, 2018
