Hugh Jackman Breaks His Wolverine Diet For A Giant Bowl Of Pasta [WATCH]

You can’t become one of the most bad-ass comic book heroes ever without a crazy diet and workout plan that keeps you shredded. That has been Hugh Jackman’s life over the last 17 years playing Wolverine in the X-Men movie franchise, keeping up his impressive physique throughout the years.

Jackman will be starring in his final Wolverine movie as “Logan” releases March 2, so while making his rounds promoting the film, he found himself on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

After all these years on the “Wolverine Diet,” eating endless amounts of steamed chicken breasts, Jackman broke his diet, as Fallon brought out famed chef Mario Batali, who gave Jackman a giant bowl of pasta to grub on.

Jackman was thrilled, saying, “That is the greatest freaking thing I’ve ever seen in my life.”

There’s absolutely no way that this is Jackman’s first cheat meal in 17 years, but whatever, it’s not a bad way to celebrate the final Wolverine movie, ever.

‘Get Your Claws On’ These New Asian-Style Burgers from Red Robin x The Wolverine

redwolverine1

In case you’ve already forgotten who “Wolverine” is, here’s a quick reminder: he’s probably the only character you didn’t hate in any of the X-Men movies (at least he was until that bloody prequel came out). He’s also played by Hugh Jackman.

Yeah, that guy.

In promotion for next month’s upcoming movie The Wolverine, Red Robin is launching two new “Asian”-style burgers called the “Beserker” and the “Kuzuri Style Tavern Double.” According to Grub Grade, the Beserker features a brioche bun with a sliced top to represent the hero’s iconic claws as well as a fire-grilled burger topped with zesty aioli, spicy pickles, Sriracha onion straws and cheddar cheese. The Kuzuri is a double patty burger with “samurai slaw,” ginger garlic wonton strips and cilantro. Kuzuri means “wolverine” in Japanese.

Finally, from now until June 30, guests can also purchase a $25 limited edition Wolverine gift card at participating restaurants and enter the gift card code at www.redrobin.com/movietix to receive a free movie ticket – while anyone who sees the movie during opening weekend (July 26-28) can get $3 off their Red Robin order the following Monday through Thursday (July 29 – August 1) with movie ticket stub.

Now if only they both came with a pint of Logan Ale.

So There’s a Butter Movie Starring Jennifer Garner, Olivia Wilde, Hugh Jackman and — I Mean What?

For a R-rated flick featuring Jennifer Garner, Ashley Greene, Alicia Silverstone, Olivia Wilde and possibly the best tasting kitchen-based lubricant imaginable, Jim Field Smith’s “Butter” seems almost disappointingly straight-laced. No, it’s not a porno, and from the trailer, it doesn’t look like any of the female leads get to make out, but what the year-old film does promise is a dark comedy with an all-star cast exploring the slimy underbelly of the competitive butter sculpting community.

Now there’s a sentence I imagined writing exactly never.

In lieu of raunchy baking escapades, “Butter” tells the story of small-town politician Laura Pickler (Garner) combating an unfaithful husband (Ty Burrell), a homewrecking stripper (Wilde) and the efforts of a young African American orphan girl (Yara Shahidi) determined to steal away her competitive butter sculpting crown. Yes, really.

We also get Jackman as a pudgy used car salesman and a butter-based Last Supper, Schindler’s List and Harriet Tubman.

Boiled down, “Butter,” like its namesake, is probably not the greatest thing to put in your cinematic system. Rob Corddry, who plays Shahidi’s adopted father, says it best:

“You people are ridiculous. It’s butter, you put it on toast. Oh, and news flash! It’s bad for you.”

Which we all already know. But it just tastes so, so good.

“Butter” opens in limited release in October.

Watch the trailer (and a bonus shot of Olivia Wilde giving a lapdance), here:

Hugh Jackman Launches Coffee Brand “Laughing Man World Wide”

Universally renowned sex symbol and actor Hugh Jackman is launching his own coffee brand — Laughing Man Worldwide.

It was when Jackman met a coffee farmer named Dukale and the two planted coffee trees together for the community that led to Jackman’s inspiration for the brand.

The man known as Wolverine from the X-Men films was struck with inspiration for creating his own brand of coffee after a trip to Ethiopia. Jackman says that all the proceeds from the coffee will go towards charity.

 

Laughing Man Worldwide also sells teas and chocolates.
