Hugh Jackman celebrates the end of his Wolverine diet in the best way

17 years of boiled chicken and broccoli have come to an end!

Hugh Jackman is celebrating the end of his strict Wolverine diet in a BIG way!

The Aussie star has been hitting our screens as the buff superhero for the past 17 years and is set to star as Wolverine for the ninth and last time (allegedly) in the X-Men spinoff film Logan, he appeared on NBC’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to talk about the movie.

While backstage in his dressing room, he decided to have a little snack.

Posting on his Instagram page a photo of himself holding a pasta dish larger than his own head courtesy of celebrity chef Mario Batali, he joked:

‘Happy Break The Wolverine Diet! @mariobatali you are legend! @jimmyfallon @wponx @20thcenturyfox.’


Hugh said on The Tonight Show that his Wolverine diet consisted of boiled chicken, broccoli and cauliflower.

‘It’s not like I never had a cheat meal, ’cause I did,” the actor said. “But for 17 years, I’ve kind of known, ‘Well, next year, you gotta get into shape…’ It kind of puts a bit of a damper on things.’
