Hugh Jackman is eating 6,000 calories a day in order to reprise his role as Wolverine in the new X-Men movie.
X-Men director Darren Aronofsky told Jackman, 42, that his height made him look too thin in the first film, so he has been ordered to bulk up.
Jackman is consuming over 6,000 calories a day in a bid to bulk up to reprise his role as Wolverine in the X-Men.
“I don’t know how much I want to give away about it, but Darren said with the last one (film), ‘Hey, you looked great, but you’re so tall that in those long shots you looked kind of like Clint Eastwood, and that’s not Wolverine…’ (I have to be) powerful, stocky… short and thick.” Jackman told the Los Angeles Times.
Jackman is hoping to have a Mike Tyson-style physique. “I always think of Mike Tyson when he first came on the scene. Sometimes, he was a full foot shorter than his opponents… but there’s real power,” Jackman added.
I always thought Jackman looked great. 6,000 calories a day is dedication!
