Hugh Jackman Covers Entertainment Weekly

Hugh Jackman Covers Entertainment Weekly

Hugh Jackman looks ready to slice and dice up the summer move competition on the latest cover of Entertainment Weekly.

The 40-year-old Aussie hunk has been on the road promoting X-Men Origins: Wolverine, out May 1. To prepare for the film, Hugh spent months following a hardcore bulk-building regimen. “I wanted to look like [Robert] De Niro did when he took off his shirt in Cape Fear and everyone went, ‘Whoa.’ You realized the guy was a freak,” recalls Hugh. “There were moments when I would wake up completely sore and say to my wife, ‘I have a feeling this is like childbirth.’”

Jacked-up Jackman also admits he applies a “What, me worry?” philosophy to everything he does. For instance, he knew he might risk his action-hero career by taking the leading role in The Boy From Oz on Broadway, as gay Aussie song-and-dance man Peter Allen. “I’ll never forget kissing a guy on stage and someone from the crowd shouting, ‘Don’t do it, Wolverine!,’” recalls Hugh. “I don’t waste time or energy with it. I think there’s far too much importance placed on people’s sexuality anyway. I love sex; it’s great, but it’s not the measure of love or a relationship. And whether you like girls or boys, whether you like the light on or off: Who cares? I always find sexuality one of the least interesting things about a person.”

    why are actors and actresses lauded for going to the gym for few months and lifting weights? millions of people do it everyday across the world….but when actors do it…it is obviously special.

    love him! Says:

    He is such a great guy and sooooooooo gorgeous! But more importantly he has brain in his head. You can see that in his interviews, he is always good with words, he knows how to speak and that’s because he’s a university graduate and he says he attends philosophy classes since he was 20 years old! Besides, what can a man offer to you if he is just handsome and with a super bod? It’s substance that really matters…
