Jackman talks about the trick he used to get all cut up for the Shingen fight. Dangerous, yes, but the results were outstanding.
For “Wolverine,” Jackman had to spend a 30-hour stretch dehydrating himself completely so that he could lose 10 pounds of water weight and have his muscles bulge extra big for a major fight sequence.
“It’s an old bodybuilder trick,” he explains. “And the first liquid you have after, say, 30 hours is glycerin mixed with honey or Coca Cola — it’s the first thing in your veins and your muscles go whoosh .”
“Kids, don’t try this at home,” he quickly adds.
