Actor Jared Padalecki accidentally called his co-star Jensen Ackles an "a**hole" during a panel discussion at a fan convention. The incident occurred when Padalecki was answering a fan's question about the challenges of working with Ackles. In a moment of exhaustion, Padalecki muttered the expletive under his breath but unknowingly said it on a microphone, loud enough for the audience to hear. The audience burst into laughter, and Padalecki realized his error. Ackles, however, took the comment in good humor and playfully shoved Padalecki. The incident showcased the close bond and lighthearted nature of their relationship, as they have been working together for many years on the television show Supernatural.
