Hugh Jackman says he never took steroid to reshape his body

Meanwhile, speaking in the interview on HBO’s “Who’s Talking to Chris Wallace,” while being asked whether he had been taking steroids in order to reshape his muscles, Jackman said, “No, I love my job.

And I love Wolverine. I got to be careful what I say here, but I had been told anecdotally what the side effects are of that. And I was like, ‘I don’t love it that much.’ So no, I just did it the old school way.

And I tell you, I’ve eaten more chickens — I’m so sorry to all the vegans and vegetarians and to the chickens of the world. Literally the karma is not good for me. If the deity has anything related to chickens, I’m in trouble”.

Besides, adding that he had never read about the comic-book character before beginning his voyage into the X-men franchise as Logan, Jackman Said, “…I got the part. I didn’t really know anything about…I didn’t, in Australia we don’t have wolverines.

I didn’t know that was a real animal. I’d never heard of a wolverine. I thought it was a made-up animal. You know, like, he’s got man hands of steel, made up. And so I was passing as I was doing rehearsal at the Imax, they had this documentary about wolves.

And I was like, perfect, because obviously I’m a wolf, part wolf”. So far, the Aussie had received a number of accolades including an Emmy Award, a Grammy Award alongside two Tony Awards.
