article imageHugh Jackman: I almost castrated myself with Wolverine's claws

Actor Hugh Jackman had a close call with his Wolverine claws during the filming of a nude scene for the upcoming "X-Men" flick.
The Aussie actor, 45, sliced into his thigh with the metal Wolverine blades while attempting to “conceal his package” during a closed set filming of a nude scene for the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, the UK Sun reports.
On a segment of The Graham Norton Show, Jackman revealed minor details of the accident, according to New York Daily News.
“There was a very intense first scene and I insisted on a closed set,” Jackman said on the show. “I ran around the corner and all the female members of the crew were gathered there.”
That was when Jackman reportedly tried to cover himself and cut his inner thigh.
“The metal claws had to go. You can’t have bits and pieces flying off,” he said.
According to MTV, the metal claws will be soon followed by Jackman himself, with upcoming big-screen future productions up in the air.
Following the release of X-Men: Days of Future Past, Jackman will reportedly reprise the role for another solo movie — another one which may not even happen, MTV reports.
Jackman told SFX Magazine that unless upcoming Wolverine productions get better and better, he won’t follow through with being the protagonist any longer.
“I don’t want to get into specifics, because it just upsets people, but there are certain parts of that story where I felt we were predictable. And I don’t think you need to do that with Wolverine,” he told SFX.
After seven movies, maybe he has a point.
Jackman will appear in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, slated for release July 14.
