Hugh Jackman To Take Time Off From Acting After Being ‘Greedy’ With Roles

Hugh Jackman may be one of Hollywood’s finest actors of the moment, but the star insists that he will take a break from acting for a while, after feeling “greedy” with the major roles he taken on.

The hunky star, who will take to our screens again as Wolverine in X-Men: Days of Future Past, joked on the Kyle and Jackie O Show that taking on major movie roles has left him in trouble with his wife and family.

The actor quipped: ”I’m taking a little while off, I don’t know if I’m taking a year, this movie now is my fourth movie a row. I’m being very greedy. There’s a thing called being in the dog box, that’s me.”

Jackman has two adopted children; Oscar, 13 and eight-year-old Ava, with wife Deborra-Lee Furness.

Meanwhile, the actor admits that he is not shy about stripping down for films, when the role calls for a little bit of flesh. We’ll see a fair amount of Jackman’s bod in Days of Future Past, and he revealed that he has no problem with it!

”You know the guys that really like being naked, I’m not one of those, but I have no issues, actors you’ve kind of got to, that’s part of the territory,” Jackman explained.

“If you’ve ever been to theatre backstage nudity is pretty much as normal as wearing clothes.”
