There's no denying that Ryan Reynolds and TJ Miller had tremendous chemistry in the first two Deadpool films but sadly, their off-screen friendship didn't last long.

It appears that Miller, who's been embroiled in a string of controversies has some serious bone to pick with his former co-star, and in a new interview, he lambasted Reynolds' change of behavior following the Merc with a Mouth's mainstream triumph.

Appearing on the Help! with Natalie Cuomo podcast, the actor who starred in Deadpool and Deadpool 2 as Weasel had choice words for his co-star, whom he claims changed after the success of the first film.

Throwing shade at Reynolds' film career prior to his Marvel casting, Miller said: "You first had Ryan Reynolds who, everybody knew who he was but he had never…he had a lot of movies that were failures, or just didn’t do that well, and so Deadpool was a real longshot for him."

The actor added: "And then so Deadpool 2 he was a different person. That's just a different guy. A guy that's become famous, in a movie that is that funny, it changes people. And I don't think it really changed me."

As of writing, Reynolds has yet to respond to the claims. However, it's worth mentioning that TJ made similar comments in 2022 but things were quickly hashed out between the two so it's quite intriguing how Miller is once again making besmirching remarks about Reynolds after they have reconciled.

Meanwhile, don't expect Weasel to return in the next Deadpool film as Miller himself previously confirmed that the character won't show up in the MCU.

Marvel Studios' Deadpool & Wolverine hits cinemas on July 26.
