Hugh Jackman: 'Les Miserables' Director Wanted People to Think I Was Sick!
Hugh Jackman carries his coat and backpack while stepping out of his apartment on Saturday (January 5) in New York City.
The 44-year-old actor recently chatted with Deadline about his role in Les Miserables being one of his toughest roles he has taken.
“There is not an element that really wasn’t the toughest. One of the reasons I did the Broadway show was to make sure I was vocally fit to not only sing it, but sing it all day long, wake up the next day, and have another 12 hours of it. I put on 29 pounds from beginning to end,” Hugh shared.
Hugh added, “Tom [Hooper] told me, ‘I want people to worry, I want your friends to think you’re sick.’ The physicality, the emotional (aspect) acting-wise, was tough.”
