As he attempts to bulk up for another superhero role, Hugh Jackman is testing out another weird diet. The actor plays Wolverine in the upcoming "The Wolverine" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past" and is only allowed to eat between certain hours of the day in order to get the physique he wants.

He told Entertainment Weekly, "I'm quite a skinny person by nature so I'm eating ridiculous amounts of food...What I do is I eat everything in an 8-hour period... It's called th...

'The Wolverine' Fights His Demons In New Trailer

5/21/2013 1:07pm EDT
The Wolverine
The new full-length trailer for The Wolverine has just been released, giving us a better idea of Logan's journey to Japan.

Still haunted by the events X-Men: The Last Stand, in which Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) had to kill Jean Grey (that's her, played by Famke Janssen, in the beginning of the trailer) so she wouldn't be corrupted by her latent Phoenix powers, Logan is found by an assassin who explains her employer has an offer: Death.

As the trailer explains, Wolverine saved a man's life during World War 2 by throwing him into a well and covering him as an atomic blast ripped through the ...

The star of the popular "X-Men" movies, Hugh Jackman, was attacked while pumping iron at his local gym on Saturday morning. Luckily, instead of fighting off Sabretooth or Magneto, the attacker was a crazed fan. The weapon of choice: an electric razor. The kicker? The razor was loaded with pubic hair.

Katherine Thurston approached Jackman and allegedly professed her love for him and threw her razor at him before running out of the complex. Thurston was caught shortly thereafter by local police and arrested. Jackman revealed later that Thurston has been stalking him and his family for some t...

Who Will Win Best Actor At The 2013 Oscars?

2/24/2013 1:30pm EST
Hugh Jackman
There's only one sure-thing at this year's Oscars -- Daniel Day-Lewis will win the Best Actor award for his performance in Lincoln.

It's hard to believe that was an actor playing Honest Abe in Steven Spielberg's biopic of the 16th President of the United States, and not Lincoln himself. Day-Lewis wasn't playing Lincoln, he was Lincoln.

Hugh Jackman's performance as Jean Valjean in "Les Miserables" was nothing short of excellent either, and if these two films had been released in different years there's no doubt both stars would win this award; but unfortunately for Jackman, he'll be headi...

Gift bags containing all sorts of expensive tchotchkes are nothing new at awards ceremonies like the Oscars, Emmys and Grammys. They started out as a way for companies to get the stars photographed with their wares in exchange for free stuff, ultimately evolving into a p...

Moviemaker Tom Hooper is convinced his Les Miserables stars Anne Hathaway and Hugh Jackman used the Oscars to audition for roles in his ambitious production.

The King's Speech director was mulling over his cast choices when he caught Hathaway serenading Jackman while co-hosting the 2011 Academy Awards - and he immediately knew the stars would be perfect as his Fantine and Jean Valjean.

Hathaway, who chopped her hair and lost 25 pounds to portray Fantine, recently told EW.com, "I couldn't sleep. I was so starving, my body was keeping me awake at night, like it was telling me, 'Go look for food!' I was kind of in this otherworldly, slightly ecstatic manic state all the time."

Bryan Singer has reportedly offered Hugh Jackman a spot in the swelling cast of his upcoming film, X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Earlier this week we reported that Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart were signed on to play Magneto and Professor X respectively. However, the comic book storyline the film is named after centers around Wolverine and Kitty Pryde - and Singer now has half of that duo in Jackman.

Ellen Page played Pryde in X-Men: The Last Stand, and there's sure to be an announcement on her involvement soon enough.

Hilarious Looking 'Movie 43' Trailer Features Tons Of Stars, Gerard Butler As A Leprechaun

10/3/2012 6:09pm EDT
Movie 43
If you ask us, if Movie 43 is just half as funny as the trailer, it's destined to be a classic. We have no idea what it's about, other than it's actually 25 short films helmed by several different directors including Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Bob Odenkirk, Brett Ratner and Griffin Dunne, and it features a huge, HUGE cast of A-list stars.

The film's greenband trailer (e.g.: approved-for-all-audiences) premiered during Tuesday night's episode of Tosh.0 on Comedy Central; and on Wednesday the very not-safe-for-work (NSFW) red-band trailer debuted on the network's website (according to...

New Poster For 'Les Miserables' Pays Homage To The Original Broadway Artwork

Les Miserables
The latest poster to promote director Tom Hooper's big screen adaptation of the stage production based on Victor Hugo's epic tale Les Miserables was released on Monday, and it bears a striking resemblance to the original artwork used for Broadway's longest-running musical.

The first promotional still for The Wolverine has been released - and as you can see, Hugh Jackman looks ripped for his upcoming role.

Jackman will be playing Marvel Comics' Wolverine for the fifth time, sixth if you count his short cameo in X-Men: First Class.

James Mangold will be taking the helm instead. His previous work includes Walk the Line, Knight & Day, and Identity.
