Listen To Hugh Jackman Talk About His Don’t-Try-This-At-Home Diet For Logan!

Hugh Jackman is without a doubt a hard worker. He spent three-quarters of his life in the gym because of his role as the marvel superhero ‘Wolverine’.


He exercised all the time as well as keeping to a strict diet. So in the new film Logan things… things were a little okay a lot different. When Jackman filmed the movie he underwent a major dehydration regime to achieve a gaunt-but-ripped look. Jackman revealed when he appeared on Stephen Colbert that he drank a lot more water to around three gallons per day. He didn’t drink anything 36 hours before they began filming. “You lose like 10 pounds of water weight, don’t do this at home.”

Jackman did this to make it authentic even though he could have used CGI. This isn’t the first Jackman’s immersed himself in a lie, when he starred in Les Miserables as Jean Valjean he channelled a no liquid diet. “I’d already shed 20 pounds, through exercise and a very lean diet, before I embarked on that 36-hour period in which I drank nothing and ate very little and I knew I was pushing myself and my body to the limit. But the non-consumption of liquids is a very clever bodybuilders’ trick for giving one sunken cheeks and sunken eyes and, boy, did it work. Maybe just a little too well…”

Jackman recently revealed that he beat cancer once again, he was relaxed about the whole situation. He posted on Instagram “Thank you, São Paulo, thank you Brazil. Happy Carnival! Health!” “It is fine, it is all done, all fixed, all out. Thank you for asking,” he said when at the Logan premier at the Berlin Film Festival in Feb. This is the sixth time Jackman had something cancerous removed, the 48-year-old actor’s had skin cancer six times.

He posted an image with a plaster on his nose with the caption “Another basal cell carcinoma. Thanks to frequent body checks and amazing doctors, all is well. Looks worse with dressing on than off. I swear!” Jackman realises this may not be the last time he’ll get something cancerous removed saying “I go every three months for check-ups. It’s the new normal for me. My doctor says I’ll likely have more, and if that’s your cross to bear in life, you should be so lucky.”
