London, Feb 5 (IANS) Actor Hugh Jackman is having 6,000 calories a day in a bid to gain weight for “The Wolverine” and says his diet is “rough”.
“I don’t know how much I want to give away about it, but Darren Aronofsky (director) said with the last one (film), ‘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…’ (I have to be) powerful, stocky… short and thick,” contactmusic.com. quoted him as saying.
Jackman also says he’ll look a bit like boxer Mike Tyson when he steps in front of the cameras.
“I always think of Mike Tyson when he first came on the scene. Sometimes, he was a full foot shorter than his opponents… (but) there’s real power. You said bulldog, and that’s it exactly. Exactly. That’s what I’m going for.”
