Hugh Jackman recently revealed an embarrassing secret.
When he was cast, as Wolverine 17 years ago, Jackman had no idea what a wolverine was.
In fact, Jackman had no idea wolverines were even a real animal.
It didn’t take X-Men director Bryan Singer long to realize that something was off about Jackman’s performance.
“He said, ‘Are you sort of walking funny, what’s going on?’ And I said, ‘I’ve been doing this thing with wolves,’ and he goes, ‘You know you’re not a wolf, right?’” Jackman remembered. Singer tried to clarify.
“I said, ‘Well, there’s no such thing as a wolverine,’” Jackman said, to which the actor recalls Singer responding, ”‘Go to the zoo, dude.’ I literally didn’t know it existed.”.
