Hugh Jackman’s wife loves the Wolverine in him

Hugh Jackman is currently filming the SEVENTH movie in which he plays Logan the Wolverine, the steel-clawed immortal mutant.
Which is good news for his wife Deborra, who loves it when he dons his Wolverine outfit.

“She kind of likes the bad boys and she doesn’t like the fact she married a guy who was the school captain. That’s not the image she likes,” Jackman told me with a laugh when we talked in New York. “I met her when I was doing a prison drama with tattoos all over my body, a mullet haircut and jacked up from the gym and that’s how she fell in love with me.

“So it’s fair to say that every time I put the Wolverine outfit on she’s fairly excited.”

The SIXTH movie, The Wolverine, which is awaiting release, takes Logan to Japan. “It’s visually different and the tone is different too,” says Jackman. “There are lots of battles but the greatest battle of all is the one within Logan between being a monster and becoming a human being.”
The seventh in the long-running series,  X-Men: Days of Future Past, which is currently filming in Montreal, sees the original X-Men cast reunited as they have to travel in time to change a major historical event. “It’s a great reunion,” says Jackman.
