Hugh Jackman in life form. He would have eaten Dwayne Johnson for the role of Wolverine
From September 2022 Hugh Jackman is on a specially formulated diet to enable him to gain muscle mass for his role as Wolverine in Deadpool 3. Since then, he has been training intensively to achieve his goals.
Hugh Jackman – Wolverine’s Diet
The actor works with a personal trainer and nutritionist. His current diet is as follows: bigmouth bass (fish, 2,000 calories), Patagonian salmon (2,100 calories), two chicken burgers (1,000 calories each) and two cuts of silverside (1,100 calories each). This means Hugh Jackman currently eats 8,000 calories a day.
For comparison, when the actor was preparing for the role in wolverine in 2013, he ate 4,500 calories. Jonathan Majors getting ready to Creed 3 and the role of the bodybuilder in Magazine Dreams he ate 6,000 calories. Hugh Jackman even “eats” Dwayne Johnsonwho usually consumes 6,000 calories to maintain his physical appearance.

Interestingly, in one of the interviews from January 2023, he said that at that time he ate 4500-5000 calories. At the time, he was finishing a Broadway show where he always burned 1,500 calories, so his nutritionist had to fine-tune his meals. Currently, however, he focuses 100% on training to prepare for the role, so there is a higher caloric diet at this probably final stage. Work on the set is scheduled to start in spring-summer 2023, so Hugh Jackman has weeks of hard work ahead of him.
