There’s no denying the fact that playing Wolverine brought Hugh Jackman unfathomable fame and in no time he became a household name around the world. The actor has already removed his cloak, but that doesn’t mean that people stop asking him questions about his X-Men character that is etched into hearts. The actor for the past two weeks, while promoting his latest release Reminiscence, has been talking about Logan a lot. And now he has made a shocking revelation.
Hugh Jackman was 32 years old when he joined Logan’s world with X-Men in 2000. The film shaped his career and played the character for nearly 3 decades. But fame came as a by-product, and their struggle until the launch of the Wolverine launch pad was immense. Speaking of the same, he has now made a shocking reveal according to which more than 47 minutes of his screen time were cut from the Sony movie. Read on to find out all about this.
Yes, you read that right. 47 minutes of Hugh Jackman’s screen time removed from his launch pad as Logan! Speaking with Collider, he was asked which movie was different when it was filmed and when it was released. He said, “I’m probably talking outside of school, Steve. But a week before it came out, I think it was 47 more minutes. “
Hugh Jackman added: “I may have exaggerated or exaggerated a little… It was a lot. And maybe the week is an exaggeration, but I certainly… I remember in what we filmed, I said, ‘What happened to that scene and that character / what? Wait, go. That memory movie is about 100 minutes long, I think. It was much longer, much longer, so it was definitely a big surprise for me. “
In the same interview, he was accompanied by the director of Reminiscence, Lisa Joy, who was also surprised by this anecdote. She sarcastically demanded a full version of the X-Men to release. But on top of that, Hugh Jackman spoke about the lesson he learned in the early days of his career.
“… There must have been battles to the end. I remember people I knew in Hollywood, not my agent, or Patrick, or anyone in the studio, but two or three other people who were in the know, saying, ‘Dude.’ I finished in February and it came out in July. They said, ‘Make sure you get another job. The word on the street is that they are seeing it as a failure. And it’s OK. At the moment, you’re the star of a Hollywood movie, right? Don’t tell them it’s a comic. That does not mean anything. Just say you’re a lead in the movie, and at least you’re going to get auditions, and then try to book something before it comes out, and they’ll give you one more chance. ‘ I remember getting that advice and saying, ‘Okay, we’re going to audition,’ Hugh Jackman said.
