Hollywood star Hugh Jackman is popularly remembered for his stint as Wolverine across the globe. After playing the character for 61-years, the actor quit playing it in 2017's Logan. Recently during one of his interaction, the 5o-year-old revealed that he was on the verge of getting fired while filming the very first film. The actor who is currently, at his 'Hugh Jackman. The Man. The Music. The Show' world tour at The O2 in London, made the scandalous confession right there.
"Five weeks into shooting 'X-Men', I was on the verge of getting fired. The head of the studio pulled me aside at lunch and he told me that they were worried at the studio, that they weren't seeing on camera what they'd seen in the audition. And the very next day the director pulled me aside and told me exactly the same thing. So clearly they'd been talking and I was freaking out. I'm thinking, oh, this is the talk you get before you get fired. And this was the biggest break of my career by a mile up to this point," Jackman said during an interaction.
During the phase of the slump and demotivation, it was Jackman's wife who made him believe in his talents. Deborra-lee Furness motivated Hugh and got his motto back to give his best for his performance. "She listened to me very patiently for about an hour, and finally she put her hand on my shoulder and she said babe, I think you've gotta just trust yourself, you're worrying way too much about what everybody else is thinking, just go back to the beginning, focus on the character, trust your instincts, you've got this. And she was right. And to me, that is love: someone who believes in you even when you don't really believe in yourself. And this whole show is dedicated to Deb and the kids," he added.
Cut to today the actor holds a Guinness World Record for having the longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero. Quite a story!
