Sometimes, celebrities can share too much on social media. Sometimes, they share just the right amount. Hugh Jackman and Jim Carrey fell into the latter camp this week with a random, yet completely hilarious, attempt at impersonating two of each other's most beloved characters.
The shenanigans started a few days ago when Jackman uploaded a Dubsmash video of himself uttering Carrey's famous "Smokin'!" line from "The Mask," nailing the comedian's rubbery facial expression with wide eyes, raised eyebrows, and a devilish grin. Jackman's post got plenty of love from fans, but it was Carrey's response the following day that made things truly amazing.
Though he didn't share a video, Carrey may have one-upped Jackman in the details department, opting to take on Jackman's Wolverine role from the "X-Men" series in a silly, surprisingly accurate photo. What the comedian lacked in sound, he more than made up for in visuals, styling his coif in the perfect Wolverine 'do and brandishing some silverware and a corkscrew to mimic the character's claws. Carrey finished off the look with a menacing growl.
