Hugh will be on SiriusXM Radio on May 28, but he taped it last week and some clips have appeared on YouTube. He is so freaking charming! The second one has a lot to do with Wolverine.

Jackman of all trades May 19, 2013

Acting wasn't always on the cards for one of our best-known stars.



In another universe, Hugh Jackman could well have been writing this article. In this universe, he might well have sold you petrol or signed you up for a gym membership you never wanted.

Not long after Jackman left school he enrolled in a journalism degree at the University of Technology, Sydney. At the same time he worked the graveyard shift at a Shell service station and behind the counter at a gym.

''I was the 'before' model at the gym,'' he says, joking. ''The only options when I was there were three, six or 12 months … but I did have a high rate of converting [members] to 12.''

It was one of the early signs of the infamous Jackman charm. Or, as he describes it: ''my b*lls**t, in journalism terms''. But journalism wasn't his destiny. ''I got caught up in the romance of journalism,'' he admits. The realisation it wasn't for him came from a tutor, Wendy Bacon. ''I saw in her this dogged 'I want the truth, I am going to track everything down.' I didn't want the truth. I was fine with the rosy coloured glasses on.''

The wanna-not-be journalist began to feel a life of career-skipping beckoned. "I kind of for a while thought my surname was going to be my curse. The jack-of-all-trades. I was pretty good at a lot of things. As an actor, when I started, I would say the same. No one was tapping me on the shoulder saying, 'Oh my god, this kid.' It's been a slow burn for me and probably a little more hard work than natural gift."

Taking a drama elective in his degree, Jackman was cast in a play and it toured it to Armidale, where students were performing a Steven Sewell play. ''The thing I remember the most was staying with the students, watching what they were doing, and realising that I had made the wrong choice for the last three years. I wished I had my time again and had done that. So I went to the theatre.''

He's never had to turn back to journalism or the gym. ''I had a five-year rule with myself [for acting] … and after five years I was still earning money. X-Men had just hit.

''Then I did another five years. I haven't renewed, I've done an open contract to myself.''

Jackman was shocked in that film to land his most famous role. ''The greatest surprise to me is Wolverine, without a doubt. You probably only need to spend more than 30 seconds to realise that I'm not a natural [for the] casting. The thing I'm most proud of acting-wise is that role.''

More recently, he gambled on Les Miserables, a film he describes as ''a huge risk''. ''I've never put so much into a film. I'm glad to say a role like this has probably taken 20 years [for me] to become a better singer or dancer or actor. As Australians, we love the have-a-go attitude and this movie is a result of that.''

Look who's on the cover of the new Entertainment Weekly:

Quote:
This Week's Cover: 'The Wolverine' tops your Summer Must List

Does Hugh Jackman ever slow down? From what we can report, the answer is a definitive no way, mate. For the cover story of our annual Summer Must List issue, EW visited the actor last year on the Sydney set of The Wolverine (in theaters July 26), where Jackman jumped and leapt and charmed his way through a series of seemingly back-breaking stunts that he made look as easy as pie. That’s entertainment — and who embodies the power and pop of summer in the cinema better than Jackman?

This is the epically buff, 44-year-old Australian’s sixth time at bat as Wolverine, and as he tells EW, he wants to make sure fans (and newcomers) walk away from the newest installment better acquainted with the elusive anti-hero than they might have after 2009’s critical dud X-Men Origins: Wolverine. “Somehow the first Wolverine movie ended up looking like the fourth X-Men – just with different characters,” he says. “I left unsure if we’d achieve our goal, which was to make sure people understood my character. This movie will really get to his core.”

Jackman reunited with director James Mangold (who worked with him on 2001’s Kate & Leopold) on a decidedly darker, more artistic approach to the character – this time, we see Logan headed to Japan, where he faces down two villains new to the franchise (The Silver Samurai and Viper), sneaky samurais (yes!), the Japanese mob and a gang of ninjas – on motorbikes! Our feature story gets the scoop on Logan’s new love interest, next summer’s new X-Men installment and some new thoughts from Jackman on Wolverine’s future in movies.

I just could not imagine eating 6000 calories a day, especially of all bland protein filled crap

even the so-called "recommended" 2000 calories leaves me so full I can't move by the end of the day

Its a diet that is hard to maintain, but when a major film studio is paying you millions to do this as part of your job, that would give you more motivation.

Empire Magazine, promoting The Wolverine:





http://www.empireonline.com/news/story.asp?NID=37636

Quote:
We're the best there is at we do - and what we do is bring you an exclusive cover with The Wolverine on it. Yes, Hugh Jackman is flashing both claws and katana on the cover of the July issue of Empire magazine and he's looking good doing it in shades of silver adamantium and gold.

Subscribers to the magazine get their own version of the cover, black and white and red all over and showing how our title would look in Japanese - which, as it turns out, is pretty darn cool.

It's a holiday weekend in the US and these were just posted, that could be the reason.

Because reporting on X-Men Isn't as high priority as anything with MS/Disney or WB.
