Ryan Reynolds' Ugly Sweater Makes A Comeback To Make Money For Charity

Last year, actor Ryan Reynolds fell for a hilarious prank. The well-known trolling expert, who has an excellent comeback for virtually any situation, wasn’t very happy about being trolled himself. When fellow actors Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal invited Ryan to a Christmas party, they made him believe that everyone would be dressed in ugly sweaters. However, upon arrival, Ryan realized that he was tricked, since he was the only one in a sweater. Meanwhile, Hugh and Jake couldn’t contain their laughter about successfully pulling off the prank, while Ryan was frowning at the camera.

Nonetheless, it was not the end for the ugly sweater, as even a year later, Ryan hadn’t forgotten about it. So right before Christmas, the Deadpool star announced that the famous sweater has returned — for a good cause.
