Hugh Jackman’s been playing Wolverine for 13 years now. Luckily, he’s not sick of the role yet – in fact, he jokes, he and his wife are really, really into it.

In an interview with the Sun, Jackman and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness kidded that he likes to wear his Wolverine claws around the house. “Oh my God, it’s dreadful! Always with the claws. I’m like, ‘Mix the salad. Put them to use, come on!’”

Jackman added, “The sheets we go through…”

I think it’s very insensitive of Jackman and his wife to joke about this. Some of us never get to wear Wolverine claws at all, you know. Some of us are bloggers and would ruin our keyboards.

Hugh Jackman and his personal trainer, David Kingsbury, started getting ready for “The Wolverine” halfway through working on “Les Miserables,” for which Jackman’s character, Jean Valjean (a prisoner turned wealthy merchant), had to go from looking scrawny to robust.

“In the first section of ‘Les Miz,’ Hugh had to be thin. But for the second section, he had to bulk up,” Kingsbury tells Metro. “That was actually quite early on, and that gave us an extra couple of months of training dedicated to ‘The Wolverine.’”
