Hugh Jackman Didn't Know Wolverines Were Real Animals

Hugh Jackman has revealed that he didn’t know wolverines existed until after he started filming X-Men!

The 48-year-old Logan actor had a funny moment where he learned that wolverines are actually animals that look like small bears but are most closely related to weasels, not fictional wolf-like creatures.

“I literally, embarrassingly did about two weeks of research on wolves,” Hugh told Page Six. “I was rehearsing for three weeks and I was shooting, so I was kind of on my own. I remember going past an IMAX in Toronto, and there was an IMAX documentary about wolves, and so I thought, ‘I’ll go and see that.’”

On the set of X-Men in 2000, director Bryan Singer apparently asked Hugh, “Are you sort of walking funny, what’s going on?”

Hugh continued, “And I said, ‘I’ve been doing this thing with wolves,’ and he goes, ‘You know you’re not a wolf, right?‘”

“I said, ‘Well, there’s no such thing as a wolverine,‘” Hugh shared, to which he was told, “Go to the zoo, dude.”

“I literally didn’t know it existed,” Hugh finished.

    yeah, a 140lb tame placid Timber wolf as a pet, it’s been done before, and a huge Bull Mastiff on the other hand is well over 100kg. Porcupines are funny, at least dogs think so, but they’re bad for them.
