Hugh Jackman almost severes his manhood while filming nude scene

15 October 2014 / 2 years 1 week ago

Hugh Jackman has talked extensively before about how playing Wolverine in both the X-Men and the solo movies has cost him a lot of delicious, unhealthy meals, but apparently, on the set of Days Of Future Past it almost cost him a whole lot more.

Specifically, it almost cost him dearly. Despite happening more than a year ago, the story is finaly starting to trickle its way around the Internet, and it’s upsetting enough to make you sicken to your stomach.

Apparently, the beloved actor was shooting a nude scene on a closed set when he scurried around a corner and promptly ran into all of the movie’s female cast members, who were huddled together and chatting with some of the crew.

Instinctively, he threw his hands downward to cover up his manhood. Unfortunately, he had those razor sharp Wolverine claws on and well, it was almost the stuff men have nightmares about, reports Cinemablend.

Here’s a portion of the actual quote he gave beloved talk show host Graham Norton, as per The Mirror: "I tried to cover myself and cut my inner thigh - it was just the inner thigh thankfully! The metal claws had to go - you can't have bits and pieces flying off."

Can you imagine what would have happened if he accidentally cut off his member with a movie prop on the set? That would have been the most epic behind the scenes scandal in the history of Hollywood.
