Hguh Jackman almost cut off his manhoodSplash Australia

Turns out Hugh Jackman had a close encounter with his metal claws while filming a nude scene for ‘The Wolverine’!


Jackman told Graham Norton, he quite enjoyed being naked saying,“It's a very freeing feeling.”

Jackman went on to describe his close encounter with the claws! “There was a very intense first scene and I insisted on a closed set. I ran round the corner and all the female members of the crew were gathered there. I tried to cover myself and cut my inner thigh - it was just the inner thigh thankfully! The metal claws had to go - you can't have bits and pieces flying off."


Jackman urged his bosses to replace the metal claws with plastic ones because of this close encounter! Imagine the danger involved in a quick trip to the bathroom?!

Now Jackman is safe to cover up his manhood in front of all the ladies. Nice one Hugh.
