Hugh Jackman Is Eating 8,000 Calories A Day To Become Wolverine Again For “Deadpool 3”
Were I but an elder fancy lad who loved to sing and dance, and money was no object, I’d simply do that. However, it seems that Hugh Jackman would rather turn his liver into human foie gras just so he can look Johnathan Majors in the eye and call him a “puny little, 6,000 calorie-a-day girlie-man.” Variety reports that Hugh Soontobejackedman has chosen to become Wolverine the hard way by saying “no thanks” to the roids and “yes please” to consuming 8,000 calories a day by mouth. And it’s not even for a Wolverine movie! It’s for fucking Deadpool 3. Hugh may be all about the gains, but I am at a loss.
It’s like, Sir, you are 54 years of age and already have a wife. There simply are not enough Marvel Bucks in circulation to make it make sense. Here’s Hugh’s lite lunch. Imagine eating The Rock’s cheat day meal three times a day. It couldn’t be me. I can only manage it once a day.

Jackman’s meals include black bass (2,000 calories), Patagonia salmon (2,100 calories), two chicken burgers (around 1,000 calories each) and two grass-fed sirloins (1,100 calories each). That means Jackson is consuming over 8,000 calories a day now as he gets bulked up for Wolverine. To put that into perspective, Jonathan Majors ate 6,000 calories for four months in order to be play a bodybuilder in his buzzy Sundance movie “Magazine Dreams.” Jackson is eating far more.
Hugh previously swore (swole?) up and down that no steroids were hurt in the creation of Wolverine the last time around, but many, many chickens perished in the effort. Hugh said he ate them, but I wouldn’t be surprised if a few of them were choked. But he also admitted that the transformation “often took a toll on his body.” And now he’s at it again, but with the benefit of wisdom that comes with middle age, which he is apparently ignoring. Hugh may never be hungry again, but he will always stay thirsty.

Deadpool 3, starring Ryan Reynolds, is supposed to hit theaters on November 8, 2024. That is if Hugh doesn’t realize that this whole “you gotta bulk up, man” thing was just another one of Ryan’s famously hilarious pranks. Because I can picture Hugh on set grunting and beating his chest, getting ready for a scene with Ryan, and PA runs over and hands him a phone, and it’s Ryan on the other end going, “gotcha, my man! I’m just going to be phoning it in like I did the last two. Wait, did you really eat 8,000 calories a day for this! Dude, that is insane.”
