The Word: Hugh Jackman steals workout moves from Dwayne Johnson
Hugh Jackman admits he isn’t afraid of stealing workout techniques from other actors — like Dwayne Johnson — if it means getting into “Wolverine” shape. “I know Dwayne and I rang him and said, ‘Buddy, I saw you in ‘The Tooth Fairy,’ and then I saw you in an action movie and you are massive. How do you do it?’ Jackman tells E! News.
“Right as he’s telling me the whole diet, someone knocked on his trailer door — and I’ll never forget this moment. He goes, ‘Hold on a second! I’m talking to Wolverine. You can tell them I said they can wait.’”
What is funny about this isn’t that Johnson called Jackman “Wolverine.” It’s that Jackman admitted to watching “The Tooth Fairy.”
