How we know - Daily Mail 4th Feb 2011,
While most Hollywood stars go easy on the calories in an effort to stay in shape, the same can’t be said for leading man Hugh Jackman.
The actor is on a mission to bulk up in preparation for the next installment of his hit film franchise, Wolverine.
His director Darren Aronofsky has ordered him to look even bigger than he did in X-Men Origins: Wolverine two years ago.
‘It’s 6,000 calories a day. It’s rough,’ says the 42-year-old Australian, who is also following an intense fitness regime.
‘Right now, I’m at 210 [15st],’ he says of his his current weight, which is already around 20lbs heavier than he was in 2009.
‘Darren said with the last one, ‘Hey you looked great, but you’re so tall that in those long shots you looked kind of like Clint Eastwood, and that’s not Wolverine,’” Jackman told the LA Times newspaper.
‘He said that Wolverine, in the comics, is powerful, stocky…he’s short and thick. So he said, ‘I want you to go there, get bigger.’”
Jackman joked: ‘If I have a massive heart attack, well, you tell everyone what I was going for.’
