Hugh Jackman is trolled after getting ‘stood up’ at a café in New York City

‘It was Ryan Reynolds, wasn’t it?’ Hugh Jackman is trolled after getting ‘stood up’ at a café in New York

He may be one of Hollywood’s most desirable men, but it seems even Hugh Jackman is not immune to getting stood up.

The X-Men star, 52, was trolled on Thursday when he shared a photo to Instagram of himself sitting at a café in New York City, with an empty chair in front of him.

He jokingly asked his followers in the caption what they thought had happened, writing: ‘A) got stood up? B) got the date wrong?’

‘It was Ryan Reynolds, wasn’t it?’ one fan responded, while another commented: ‘Has that Ryan Reynolds let you down again?’

Others said it must have been option B, with one asking: ‘Who in their right mind would ever bail on you?’ 

However, the general consensus was that Ryan, 44, was the culprit given the longstanding joke feud between the two actors.

‘Yesterday, I went on a journey to The Edge,’ Jackman said in a video as he marvelled at the stunning view of the New York skyline. 

He also showed his followers another attraction, the Vessel, which is a structure that features hundreds of flights of stairs built in a honeycomb shape. 

In the video he abruptly turns to his wife and cameraman, Deborra-Lee Furness, and tells her they should walk it and do a ‘stairs workout.’
