Hugh Jackman To Appear Naked In ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Scene

hugh jackman mens health coverHugh Jackman has admitted to having filmed a naked scene in the forthcoming X-Men prequel Days of Future Past.

The 45-year old Hollywood star revealed how producers of the movie informed he he’d have to be nude for a particular scene – which the actor doesn’t go on to reveal.

And being the dedicated man that he is, Hugh made sure that he had enough time to get himself in shape for that particular day, because… well you don’t want to be looking crazy when you strip naked in front of all the camera crew members, right? Haha.

“There’s a naked shot in this one. Not front naked – it’s PG-13 – but full-body. So I made it very clear that I wanted to know the date I’d be shooting that stuff,” the actor tells Men’s Health.

“That was May 21. And I remember about three weeks before that, I hear, ‘Oh, we’re having some trouble with the day, we might push it off a few weeks. I said, ‘Absolutely not! I don’t care, you can push anything back you want, but I’m naked on that day!’’

Jackman continues to talk about why fitness has become such an important part of his life, adding that he could never stop exercising. “It’s interesting. I’ve been fascinated myself that I don’t want to completely do nothing,” he said.

“This morning, including this [photoshoot], I’ve trained twice. I’m betting that for the next five or 10 years, I’ll still get asked to do stuff where I have to be physical.”

“It’s tempting to just go and do yoga, or swim, or play tennis. But being skinny, I’ll lose the muscle like that. I know how hard it is to get back. And by the way, it’s harder at 45 than it was at 30. Even now, I’m noticing the weight starting to go down. You have to work hard. It sucks.”

X-Men: Days of Future Past hits theaters later this month.
