Actor Hugh Jackman reveals that he jumped into
the ocean every morning to prepare for his role in The
Wolverine. The 44-year-old said that he got into his
character's mindset by taking a leap into the freezing cold water
in Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia, where the film was shot.
"One thing I do now is I jump in the ocean every morning. It's
pretty cold, but just that feeling - that's Wolverine. Like when
you have to have a shower but there's only cold water and it really
pisses you off? That's how he feels 24/7," femalefirst.co.uk quoted
Jackman as saying.
Jackman also did quick workouts before his scenes in order to
appear out of breath on camera. "Sometimes you'll see me doing
push-ups or squats before a take because I have to be out of breath
on screen. I've made the mistake before of pretending to be out of
breath, and then suddenly I'm hyperventilating and I'm almost
passing out," he added.
