Hugh Jackman was “embarrassed” by the photos he posted of his X-Men workouts.
The Wolverine actor took to his Instagram and Twitter accounts to show off his bulging biceps as he trained for new movie X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Lifting 46 lbs., a red faced Hugh told his followers that “if it ain’t bendin, then you’re just pretendin (sic)”
“I’m a little embarrassed about that. That was a moment. [of] just showing off, completely showing off… I’m about to turn 45, I will never do this again and I want to document it,” he told Access Hollywood.
The latest movie in the X-Men franchise also stars Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender, Nicholas Hoult, Anna Paquin and Ellen Page.
And according to 44-year-old Hugh, this is the best one yet.
“It’s like two movies in one. But the size of it is like three in one and it really is gonna blow people away because of the story,
“And [director] Bryan Singer, I think, is gonna become the first director to make increasingly better movies in a franchise. I’m not sure if there’s anyone else who’s done it,” he proclaimed.
Hugh’s wife of 17 years Deborra-Lee Furness has previously said her husband’s ever-changing physique spices up their marriage. He is renowned for beefing up for film roles, eating as much as 6,000 calories a day.
“I like him all ways: chubby, muscly, skinny. It’s like I’m always having affairs. But I like him best clean shaven,” she told Town & Country magazine.
Hugh credited Deborra with his A-list career in a recent interview with British newspaper The Sun.
“I would be a quarter of the man I am without her,” he confessed as he thanked her for how far he’d come.
