    “I Went Commando”: Hugh Jackman Demanded To Be N*ked In An ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Scene And The Reason Is His Australian Heritage

    Hugh Jackman‘s Wolverine is back for Ryan Reynolds’ third Deadpool movie, ‘Deadpool and Wolverine‘. In a scene from ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’, Jackman emerges from a time jump not just disoriented, but completely naked. While some viewers might have found it a gratuitous addition, the story behind the nudity is actually rooted in a bit of playful Aussie spirit.

    The brief moment of nudity might seem like a minor detail. However, it speaks volumes about Jackman’s dedication to his craft and his ability to infuse humor into even the most serious situations.

    According to Jackman himself, the script originally called for Wolverine to wake up in 1973 wearing boxer shorts. Here’s where things get interesting. Jackman, ever the dedicated actor and notorious prankster on set, took issue with this detail. “I said, ‘I don’t know about America, but in Australia, if you’re next to a really good-looking girl, you’re not getting out of bed in boxers or briefs or anything.” 

    Jackman revealed this on Live With Kelly And Michael. “So yeah, I went commando,” he added. Additionally, this wasn’t just a random act of rebellion. Jackman believed it added a layer of authenticity to Wolverine’s state of mind. Imagine waking up in a strange bed, disoriented and confused after a time jump. The last thing on your mind would probably be checking your attire.

    Director Bryan Singer, while initially surprised by Jackman’s decision, ultimately embraced the change. “Hugh came to me and said, ‘I think it would be funnier if I was naked,” Singer recalled. “And I said, ‘Well, that’s certainly a bold choice, Hugh.’ But then I thought about it, and I actually think it works.”

    The decision to go commando wasn’t without its challenges. Jackman, a consummate professional, ensured the scene remained tasteful and focused on the character’s emotional turmoil. “There were a lot of strategically placed pillows,” he joked about the filming process. It also adds a touch of vulnerability to Wolverine, a character often portrayed as stoic and unyielding.  

    Seeing him exposed, both literally and figuratively, makes him more relatable and adds depth to his portrayal. Ultimately, it’s a testament to Jackman’s charisma and the playful spirit he brings to the role that a seemingly minor detail like this could become such a memorable part of the film.
