Ryan Reynolds says Hugh Jackman is a ''fraud'' and not even Australian.

The 'Deadpool' actor has reignited his tongue-in-cheek fake feud with the 'Logan' actor - who was born in Sydney - and joked his friend is actually a fellow Canadian.

Speaking to Australian's 'Today' show, he teased: ''He's just an evil person. You guys have all been duped...

''You think he is this benevolent ambassador from your country, people don't realise he is from Winnipeg, Canada... The Truth makes your eyes water. Hugh Jackman is a fraud.''

The two pals frequently take playful digs at each other in interviews and on social media, and Ryan's latest comments come after the 'Greatest Showman' star mocked him while congratulating John Legend on being named People's Sexist Man Alive.

Hugh - who won the accolade in 2008, two years before the 'Deadpool' star - warned the 40-year-old singer he needed to ''fall in with the right crowd'' now he has joined the ''very, very prestigious'' group to have been given the title and couldn't resist taking a swipe at his friend as he did so.

Hugh shared a video on Instagram of himself and Ryan looking at the 2008 Sexiest Man Alive cover and captioned the clip: ''Dear John. Massive congrats on joining this very very prestigious group. 99% of the time, People Magazine gets it right. Such as Blake, DJ, etc ...

''But a word of caution. There is the 1%. Exhibit A. It's important that you fall in with the right crowd. Enjoy your reign. Love Hugh.(sic)''

But the 'All of Me' hitmaker claimed he was left confused by the advice.

He commented: ''Wait so you're the 99 and Reynolds is the 1? Or vice versa? (sic)''
