HUGH JACKMAN’S SOLUTION TO MAKING A BETTER ‘WOLVERINE’? GET FAT

In an effort to get the tall, lean Hugh Jackman to better resemble the thick, stocky Wolverine of the comic books, director Darren Aronofsky is forcing Jackman to go on a 6,000 calorie-a day diet:

“Yeah, he’s thick and it’s chunky and it’s powerful. I always think of Mike Tyson when he first came on the scene. Sometimes, he was a full foot shorter than his opponents and bent over [with this] massive build. There’s real power. You said bulldog, and that’s it exactly. Exactly. That’s what I’m going for, and if I have  a massive heart attack first, well, you tell everyone what I was going for.”

Wouldn’t it be great if this plan backfired, and Jackman got too fat to play Wolverine? I kid, I kid. But seriously, Jackman is just a really tall dude, and there isn’t much they can do to disguise that. The comic book Wolverine is something like 5′ 2″ at best, and the only way you’re going to get Hugh Jackman to look that short is if he walks around on his knees with little feet attached to the kneecaps, Dorf On Golf style.
