Actor TJ Miller is no longer in a relationship with Ryan Reynolds after an awkward scene on the set of a “Deadpool” movie.

During an appearance on “The Adam Carolla Show,” Miller, 41, revealed that he would never work with Reynolds again.

Miller, who played bartender Weasel in the first two “Deadpool” movies, recalled an incident on set in which Reynolds, 41, asked to do another look in an attempt to belittle him in front of his cast and crew members. workshop.

“As a character, he was terribly mean to me. But to me. Like I’m the weasel,” Miller told Carolla.

“He said to me, ‘You know what’s great about you, Weasel? You’re not the star, but you do enough exposition that it’s funny, and then we can leave and get back to the actual movie.”

Miller, who described Reynolds as an “insecure dude,” admitted he and crew members felt uncomfortable after Reynolds’ comment.

“I just kind of listened and thought it was weird and then I walked off the stage because they were like, ‘Cut…?’ explained.

When Carolla noted that Miller received praise for his comedic timing in “Deadpool” despite not starring, Miller acknowledged that Reynolds’ comment could have been more of a personal jab.

“That’s exactly why he said it,” Miller said. “Because I’m not any funnier than him, right? And I haven’t been in more movies than him.”

While Miller said he believed a third film could ruin a movie franchise, he revealed that Reynold’s behavior also played a role in why he wouldn’t be interested in returning “Deadpool 3.”

“Would I work with him again? No. I wouldn’t work with him again,” Miller said. “I wish him well because he’s so good in Deadpool and I think it’s weird that he hates me.”

However, Miller revealed that his feelings may not be permanent, recalling that he said the same thing about director Michael Bay, but has since changed his mind.

Miller went on to suggest that Reynolds and his wife, Blake Lively, curate good public images compared to how they may act in private.

“I don’t wish them ill will. I think so [Reynolds] he should make a ‘Deadpool 3’ and keep making movies. I just think he doesn’t like me and I found it strange how he expressed that.”

Despite the “weird” moment on set, Miller believes Reynolds is a good comedian but changed once he became “super, super famous from the first Deadpool movie.”

“Deadpool 3” is slated for a September 6, 2024, release date.
