Hugh Jackman Covers 'Men's Fitness' July/August 2013

Hugh Jackman shows off his buff bod on the cover of Men’s Fitness magazine’s July/August 2013 issue.

Here is what the 44-year-old The Wolverine actor had to share with the mag:

On Dwayne Johnson‘s fitness advice: “He told me that if in a six-month period you want to put on 25 pounds of lean muscle and not fat, eat natural and eat 6,000 calories a day. There were times when I would literally eat with the mind set of working out. ‘One more mouthful, one more, come on, come on, you’ve got to finish this meal!’”

On being referred to as the Nicest Guy in Hollywood: “As an actor, I’ve always believed that any label is your enemy. Look, I was brought up in a way where you treat people with respect. So it’s certainly easier for me to be polite and respectful to people than to be an asshole. Like, if I’m walking down the street with my family and the 29th person says, ‘Hey man, can I get a photo?’ for me to say, ‘No photos, get f–ked’— for the next hour I’ll be thinking I shouldn’t have said that. Whereas, if I say either, ‘Yeah, no problem,’ or, ‘Listen, I’m with my family now, but it’s nice to meet you,’ then I move on, in a way it’s easier. It’s a mixture of that and also not being a wanker.”

On trying to be himself: “I try to be myself as much as I can when I’m not acting, for better or worse, but I’ve had publicists who’ve told me it’s a bad idea: ‘You move your hands too much, you did this too many times, you should do this, you shouldn’t talk about that.’”
