The actor went on to explain that they hadn’t really connected until filming Life together, but added, “He’s just a great dude.”
Meyers still seemed skeptical about the status of Gyllenhaal and Reynolds’ friendship, daring the actor to try calling the Deadpool star.
“I’m hoping my mom does the best Ryan Reynolds impersonation right now,” Gyllenhaal quipped. Then when he was challenged to FaceTime, he continued, “Oh my god, please answer. Or don’t if you’re taking a bath or something.”
After two failed attempts, Gyllenhaal put his phone away. But during the commercial break while Meyers was fixing a microphone issue, Reynolds called back.
The proud Gyllenhaal held up the FaceTime for the audience to see before mic-dropping the phone.
“Wait, Ryan! Hold on!” Gyllenhaal shouted, scrambling for the phone.
