Hugh Jackman On His Wolverine Diet And X-Men: First Class!

Hugh Jackman On His Wolverine Diet And <i>X-Men: First Class</i>!

The actor talks about the rather unpleasant way in which he's lost his Wolverine physique, reveals whether he's keeping the strict diet going and shares his thoughts on X-Men: First Class...

In a humorous video interview talking about Reel Steel, with NBC Washington, the actor was quizzed about both his strict diet for The Wolverine and what he thinks about X-Men: First Class. To view that video, be sure to follow the link at the bottom of the page, but here is my transcript of that interview.

You're a little bit leaner than the last time I saw you when you were training for The Wolverine.

You don't want to know why. Let's just say it's something to do with a bug. It was not a very pretty ride home!

Are you going to bulk back up again?

I'm staying in the ballpark. I'm not sure if I can eat 29 chicken breasts a day without a director attached, but I'm staying in the ballpark.

I interviewed Chris Hemsworth yesterday for Thor, and I said did you do the Hugh Jackman diet, and he knew exactly what I was talking about.

Did he really? Please don't give that to me! It is actually the Dwayne Johnson diet. I rang him and said, 'What do I do?' because I saw what he did for the movie Faster. That's where it comes from.

What do you think about X-Men: First Class?

The trailer looks great. I'm just a fan of that movie like you guys. I'm not involved with the movie. It's a great cast, and I hear really, really good things.

Yes but I had a hard time processing that he was in a broadway musical. How do you go from wolverine beserkere rage to singing in the rain or whatever it was he did

The fact he likes the look of First Class proves he should not be WOLVERINE anymore!

Hell, he has to say that sh1T... he's owned by FOX! : P

It's cause his talented and that's how actors are, they well go on live audience to entertain. If that's hard for you to believe that check out happy feet his in there and I didn't recognize his voice.

He did a Dwayne Johnson diet? What is that excat diet? Kudos to him wish they can find another great director to make a wolverine movie but just wish it's rated R, but well never happen cause wolve is a big name for kids to buy the merchandise.

CapFan79 - 4/1/2011, 8:14 AM
Dang, I've been bulking up recently and was eating a whole chicken per day. 29?!?!? No wonder The Rock is so big.

I'm sure they'll pick a director soon. They'll still try to film in early July. They probably don;t want to seem too rushed since Aronofsky just left but they're talking to people I'm sure.

P90X and 6 Chicken Breasts everyday!
Do your best... forget the rest!
X me baby! C'mon X ME!
loganoneil - 4/1/2011, 10:27 AM
Yeah, yeah, yeah - dead animal protein, brown rice and broccoli... OLD NEWS! When is Jackman going to start talking about hitting the dojo/kwoon and actually LEARNING HOW TO FIGHT?!

When will the Wolverine learn how to FIGHT?!

you hear really good things, Hugh, because this time they are making a movie about the whole team, not about your character, like in the previous 4 movies.
SHAZAM171 - 4/1/2011, 11:14 AM
Well, the cameo in X-Men: First Class is not Wolverine. Now we know... I hope Hugh's just covering it up and he really is in it. But something tells me that it's going to be THE JUGGERNAUT. IMO
Zeppelinkid007 - 4/1/2011, 2:46 PM
i couldnt even choke 29 chickens a day... Damn this man IS logan
fullmetal - 4/1/2011, 3:07 PM

hugh is to wolverine what christopher eeeves was to superman...the man id dedicated and loves wolverine genuinely..there's a saying about hugh regarding wolverine.."if he could shrink himself down to 5 feet, he would!"
Ryguy88 - 4/1/2011, 11:14 PM
Leee, you've lost your grip on reality man. Are you actually against Jackman playing Wolverine because his opinions in movies differ from your own? Go watch G.I. Joe again bud.

SHAZAM, Juggernaut would be too good to be true!
