John Krasinski’s Playful Jibe at Hugh Jackman
The amusing incident unfolded in November 2018 when Hugh Jackman posted a photo with Emily Blunt on the red carpet. The Wolverine star, aged 54 at the time, tweeted, “Had the pleasure of chatting with the amazing EMILY BLUNT today. @Variety #actorsonactors @TheFrontRunner @MaryPoppins,” referring to Variety’s Actors on Actors event. While it was just a regular, cheerful picture of the two of them, John Krasinski saw an opportunity for some friendly teasing.
Krasinski, renowned for his portrayal of Jim Halpert in “The Office,” responded with another image of Hugh Jackman with Emily Blunt at the same event and quipped, “Eeeeeeasy Hugh… not sure this is what @Variety meant with #ActorsonActors… Don’t make me think I can hurt you.” The image captured a red carpet moment where Hugh Jackman was leaning in close to Emily Blunt, whispering something in her ear, while she smiled with her eyes closed, hands on his shoulders.
Ryan Reynolds Joins the Fun
The playful exchange didn’t stop there. Ryan Reynolds, known for his humor and witty comebacks, couldn’t resist jumping into the online banter. Reynolds humorously chimed in, declaring, “This is a call to action. This man must be stopped,” with a touch of playful exaggeration.
