Hugh Jackman Gets Naked in 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'!

Hugh Jackman strikes a classic Wolverine pose on the cover of Men’s Health magazine’s June 2014 issue, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 45-year-old X-Men: Days of Future Past actor had to share with the mag:

On shooting a naked scene for X-Men: “There’s a naked shot in this one. Not front naked – it’s PG-13 – but full-body. So I made it very clear that I wanted to know the date I’d be shooting that stuff. That was May 21. And I remember about three weeks before that, I hear, ‘Oh, we’re having some trouble with the day, we might push it off a few weeks. I said, ‘Absolutely not! I don’t care, you can push anything back you want, but I’m naked on that day!’’

On why he’ll never stop training: “It’s interesting. I’ve been fascinated myself that I don’t want to completely do nothing. This morning, including this [photoshoot], I’ve trained twice. I’m betting that for the next five or 10 years, I’ll still get asked to do stuff where I have to be physical. It’s tempting to just go and do yoga, or swim, or play tennis. But being skinny, I’ll lose the muscle like that. I know how hard it is to get back. And by the way, it’s harder at 45 than it was at 30. Even now, I’m noticing the weight starting to go down. You have to work hard. It sucks.”

On his best advice: “Learn a lot about yourself. You push yourself, challenge yourself, you go to places emotionally you don’t always want do that. But it keeps you fresh and young. Our tendency in life is to narrow everything. Worldview, friendships, choices, feelings we have, reactions to things become smaller and narrower. We lose our range.”
