Hugh Jackman - Beefcake Or Photoshopped? Hugh Jackman Looking Pumped In The Wolverine Movie Still

A brand new still from The Wolverine has been released and Hugh Jackman is looking more pumped than ever. According to the Daily Mail, Jackman had to lose a significant amount of weight when he took on the role of Jean Valjean in Les Miserables, but the Aussie actor has bulked right back up again. You’d be forgiven for thinking that those pectoral musicals had been Photoshopped on, they’re so huge but actually, this wouldn’t be the first time that we’ve seen Jackman looking pumped.

In previous X Men movies, Hugh has had to work out prior to filming, to get his body in shape for the super hero movies but this time – seen in the still in a fit of rage and glowering at something off camera – he’s looking even bigger than ever. The movie, The Wolverine is the latest in a series of X Men films and this will be the seventh time that Jackman has played Wolverine (he’ll make it an eighth in the forthcoming X: Men Days of Future Past.) Jackman reportedly had to eat 6,000 calories a day, consisting of mainly chicken, steak and brown rice and he even sought the advice of professional wrestler and actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson on the best way to get into the right shape for the movie.

The Wolverine is scheduled for release in July 2013. In the meantime, Jackman can be seen in Les Miserables, for which he has been nominated for an Oscar.
