Hugh Jackman Covers 'Men's Fitness' October 2011

Hugh Jackman poses on the cover of Men’s Fitness‘ October issue.

Here’s what the 42-year-old Real Steel star, who did a photo shoot with boxing icon Sugar Ray Leonard, had to share with the mag:

On exercising: “I don’t really enjoy training. People say it’s addictive, but I’m like, ‘not so much.’ If I weren’t getting paid or didn’t have a character like Wolverine to maintain, I would just be a tall, lean, fit guy.”

On his 2008 “Sexiest Man Alive” title from People: “An old friend of mine e-mailed me and said he had cowboy boots sexier than me.”

On being called one of Hollywood’s nicest guys: “I’m a bit of a people pleaser, unfortunately. My wife [Deborra-Lee Furness] says it’s hard to be married to me. She wishes I were more of an a—–.”

Don Scott, a trainer who’s worked with Hugh for three years, on his dedication: “He’s one of the most focused clients I’ve ever known. People might think commitment is a given for a guy like him. I’ve trained other celebs. It isn’t.”

    I like his commentary “I don’t really enjoy training. People say it’s addictive, but I’m like, ‘not so much.’ If I weren’t getting paid or didn’t have a character like Wolverine to maintain, I would just be a tall, lean, fit guy.” these words makes him like one of us and I like that his movies have grossed more than $1.4 billion worldwide.

    He’s so…… likable? I don’t wanna rag on him like some other celebs. He seems like a really nice guy and I like his movies. Mostly I like him as Wolverine. Yummy.

    ok, i’ll buy this one just for Hugh Jackman

  • Yo-Landi

    He seems so cool and nice. I like his personality, really seems great. And he’s very handsome. Fit or super muscle-y? What’s the difference? He’s still sexy as hell!

    “An old friend of mine e-mailed me and said he had cowboy boots sexier than me.”

    I have to agree with others; Hugh is just so damn likable and sincere as well as talented and hot, and he would be hot lean and fit or big and buff.
