Hehe.. Well, I think the important thing is not to put actors on pedestals, as though they are gods who have magically beautiful faces and bodies. They use all the tricks available. Anyone who googles 'celebrities without make-up' can see many (mostly female) actors before they trowelled on the foundation and concealer.

Expert hair make-up, cosmetic procedures of all kinds (from hair transplants on men - you can see Christopher Meloni's quite clearly on L&O:SVU - to major surgery), injections of steroids and HGH (Sylvester Stallone was arrested carrying HGH into Australia). They're all at it. I'm actually quite envious they have the financial means (and entourage of experts) to look as fabulous as they do, but it's also heartening to see that they are really quite normal looking!

Well of course certain Hollywood actors juice. But since they're not competing in major league sports, there's nothing particularly wrong with it. Just taboo.

Totally agree, no need to mess up a good movie translation from comic book world so far with a spandex looking outfit. And personally I enjoyed the more usable 1st class style battle suits over the leather X1-X3 interpretation.

Okay, so Famke is obviously good friends with Hugh and Bryan, (via last weeks tweet) soooo, what I'm getting at is, she has to be in the movie right? It would be messed up, if the whole family got a reunion except for Famke & James, which I rrrrreally believe that they have to be in this movie.

Well in my opinion, they shouldn't just resurrect/bring back a character just because the actor is close to the cast/crew of the film.

I hope that's the case; don't get me wrong Jackman is awesome as Wolverine but at this stage he can probably play him in his sleep. I'd just rather see Hugh go for the roles that really push him as an actor.

I saw it today! It was Fantastic. Hugh killed it. Serious it was well worth the $9.25. I would recommend seeing it if you can.

About the roid thing. I recently heard a podcast with Scott Snyder and he said that Hugh Jackman has to take steroids to get that big. And he said it so casually as if it were the most common thing in the world, making me think he had known other actors taking it or maybe he simply doesn't know.

But this much is certain, Jackman is very very very disciplined. He looks like a body builder because he trains like one. He follows the routine day in day out. He routinely takes as much rest required, as many calories required, as many supplements required, trains 3 hours a day. He does all the body building tricks before his shirtless shots. He basically treats his shirtless shot like a body builder treats his stage appearance. He's water-depleted, tanned and all that jazz for maximum impact.

What I am saying is that with the lifestyle that Jackman is living, constantly in training for the last decade, I think he is very likely to be natural. Though he might have tried gear at some point in his life.

Well, it really doesn't matter if Jackman does get some artificial help in his bodybuilding. It just isn't important. Even if he does, or did, then he'd have had expert supervision.

It really amuses me (and to some extent annoys me) that we live in such a celebrity culture that people so easily idolise the way famous people look. Some friends of mine in Facebook were cooing over how amazing Cher looks for 67. Well, she has good bone structure and is naturally slim, but how soon people forget the other stuff that helps her look amazing: plastic surgery, expert make-up, wigs, Photoshop, fitness experts, nutrition experts, an army of helpers doing every single thing for her, and basically not having any of the stresses and strains most normal people have to put up with (worrying about money, losing their jobs in this crappy economy, working all hours in the office and at home, trying to bring up children, etc). I know someone who just had a nervous breakdown over all the stresses they were facing, and my neighbour has lost her job three times in the past five years and now looks really ragged and haggard from all the worry of trying to bring up her two young children. Cher doesn't have any of that stuff going on.

So let's not idolise these megastars too much.

You don't think having Chasity Bono for a daughter or Greg Allman for a husband ever caused Cher stress?
Never any money stress I'm sure. But there is stress in everyone's life.

I'd be all for it, but it's early in the season and it's a pretty crowded year, so who knows? Both he and Jake Gyllenhaal are definitely deserving, though.

If there's an Oscars for superhero/CB films, Hugh Jackman should get a nomination for Outstanding lead Actor and win it!

He was very warmly praising Jackman for the way he looked in The Wolverine, not criticizing him.

I think it is an impressive physical achievement and people feel inspired and motivated to work towards their own goals after seeing what he has achieved.

I didn't listen to the podcast (I really only read about it from your post) but I wouldn't necessarily call someone saying I'm taking steroids as someone who's "warmly praising" me.

Jackman could very well be truthful when he hints this may be his last X Film, he may want to venture into other things or have more time with his family instead of the work he put in to look like he did in TW. Just because he wouldnt want to continue at the time does not mean Wolverine dies.
