Hugh Jackman Didn't Know Wolverines Were Real Animals

It’s okay if somebody did not know wolverines have been actual animals, however for the one that acquired paid thousands and thousands to play a wolverine in a couple of Marvel motion movies, it is fairly bizarre. Hugh Jackman is the person in query, since starring in X-Men, The Wolverine, and Logan. During a latest go to on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert the 50-year-old admitted his fact. 

“Embarrassingly, I didn’t know what a wolverine was, I’d by no means heard of such an animal,” he admitted, Page Six. “I thought it was a made up title for the comedian ebook. I’d by no means learn an ‘X-Men’ comedian, I’d by no means seen a wolverine. We don’t have them in our zoos.”

Hugh assumed his character was derived from wolves, so he studied them intently for his position. “I watched some documentaries, there was an enormous IMAX film on the time, I went twice to go and see it,” he added.

“I put within the hours and I turned up on set for a battle rehearsal and I used to be simply incorporating a few of that, you realize, wolves at all times have their nostril to the bottom, it’s at all times trying by means of their eyes as a result of they’re smelling you and the director goes, ‘What are you doing, man, with the physique?’ I stated, ‘I used to be performing some work on the wolves, blah, blah, blah’ and he goes, ‘Wolves? Why wolves? You’re taking part in a wolverine.’ I am going, ‘That’s not an animal’ and he goes, ‘Yeah it’s, go to the zoo.’ It was a humiliating second and three weeks of wasted analysis.”
