    Default Why Hugh Jackman Eats "6,000 Calories a Day"

    Why Hugh Jackman Eats "6,000 Calories a Day" - MOVIE TALK on Yahoo! Movies

    To prep for the next installment of Wolverine, Hugh Jackman says director Darren Aronofsky asked him to bulk up -- and so far, it's working!

    "Right now, I'm at 210," the native Australian tells the L.A. Times of his current weight, the result of an intense diet and workout regime. "It's 6,000 calories a day. It's rough."

    Aronofsky -- who famously asked Natalie Portman to shed 20 pounds for 2010's Black Swan -- said he wanted wanted Jackman, 42, to look more muscular than he did in 2009's "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." (The actor was closer to 190 pounds at the time.)

    "Darren said with the last one, 'Hey you looked great, but you're so tall that in those long shots you looked kind of like Clint Eastwood, and that's not Wolverine,'" Jackman says. "He said that Wolverine, in the comics, is powerful, stocky...he's short and thick. So he said, 'I want you to go there, get bigger.'"

    According to Jackman, packing on the pounds hasn't affected his health too much -- for now, at least.

    "If I have a massive heart attack, well, you tell everyone what I was going for," he jokes.
