Hugh Jackman’s Daughter Wants to Know Why He Isn’t Wearing Underwear

Hugh Jackman took his daughter to see X-Men: Days of Future Past but forgot to tell her he had a nude scene where everyone could see his butt. That must be awkward for any 9-year-old. There’s no way I ever want to see my dad’s ass no matter how many quarters you could bounce off it.

“It is actually really cool to watch it with them until you get to the moment where you’re naked onscreen and you forgot to warn your almost 9-year-old daughter,” Jackman said. “And she says ‘Dad, why aren’t you wearing underwear?'”

There’s really only one way to respond to that. Say to her, “Daddy’s freeballing it, bro,” and give her a fist bump. Anyway, you’ll be glad to know that it takes at least some effort for Hugh Jackman to look like he was chiseled out of stone.

“You have no idea what goes into the lead up to a scene like that. It was a year ago,” said Jackman, in answer to a reader’s inquiry about the sequence. “I know that exactly because it was May 21. I stopped drinking water for 24 hours, I pumped up on set for about an hour before shooting. And fell asleep by 2 o’clock.”

So that’s where I was going wrong because I’ve been doing the complete opposite of what he said.
