In the Supernatural episode "The French Mistake" (S6E15), Sam and Dean are zapped into our universe, wherein they are really Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, actors playing Sam and Dean Winchester on the show Supernatural.

We know that Jared and Genevieve (Ruby) are really married, but is any of the other stuff (specifically the feud between Jared and Jensen) true?

1 Answer 1


From the IMDB trivia page:

In the alternate universe, "Jared" and "Jensen" don't talk to each other. In real life, they are best friends and were each other's groomsmen.

In this video they tell their story of their first time meeting, and they play off each other really well. They seem like good mates just off this alone

This Quora answer also shows some of the different truths that happened during the episode:

When Misha was seen tweeting on his phone, they were actually real tweets that were posted

The wedding photo of Jared was a real life genuine one.

The magazine that was shown in Jensen's trailer was an authentic copy of The Official Supernatural Magazine, Issue 11

Jensen actually does have an RC helicopter

  • also, I believe they show legitimate former roles for both actors.
