Hugh Jackman Shows Off Huge Arm Muscles Ahead Of 'Late Show' Appearance

Hugh Jackman gives a thumbs up as he arrives to tape his appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in New York City on .

The 52-year-old actor met a crowd of fans waiting outside the theater and happily signed some autographs for them while wearing a face mask.

After filming his appearance, Hugh was seen running into a black labrador, who sniffed his hand before he left.

Click inside to see the advice that Hugh shared from from his X-Men co-star, Ian McKellen…

He told Stephen that Ian McKellen gave him the best advice about acting on film, versus their first home, the theater.

“He said, ‘It’s going to feel really uncomfortable. When you’re acting on film, it feels uncomfortable, but it will look great. Just go with it,’” he shared. “And I always remember that, because when you begin in film, it’s stop, start. It’s very weird. You’re never acting for more than a minute and a half at a time.”

In addition to Ian‘s advice, Patrick Stewart also imparted some wisdom to Hugh, that he and wife, Deborra-Lee, still follow to this day.

“He said, ‘I learned when I was about 60 — and I wished I had learned it when I was younger — I give myself time of day at the beginning.’ So, if he has a 5 a.m. wake-up call for a film, he wakes up a 4 a.m., he goes and gets a cup of tea, he comes back to bed with his favorite book,” Hugh shared. “He says, ‘I don’t read the paper because it makes me angry. I don’t read emails because that stresses me. I don’t read a script, I get nervous. I just read a book. So I know that no matter what happens for the rest of the day, I’ve had a half hour.’”

“So, I’ve done that,” he added. “My wife and I wake up every morning, get a cup of tea — coffee for me — and we sit in bed and we just read.”

FYI: Hugh is wearing Dunhill.

Speaking of X-Men, Hugh might have spilled the beans about returning as fan favorite, Wolverine. See what happened here!
