Hugh Jackman wants to get sweaty with you.
But it'll cost ya…
A workout session with the X-Men star as he bulks up (i.e., packs on 20 pounds of lean tight hairy muscle) to reprise his role as Wolverine is currently up for auction at charitybuzz.com to benefit New York City's Summit School for children with learning and adjustment challenges.
"If someone comes in and says, ‘I want to try it exactly how you train. I want to just go as hard as we can,' we'll go there," Jackman told me yesterday from Michigan, where he's shooting Real Steel. "But I don't want people to feel intimidated if they want to come experience it but not keel over.
"Put it this way, if you want to throw up, there's every opportunity," he added. "But if you want to come and have a light sweat, want to have a bit of fun, maybe an autograph or two, you can do that as well."
As of this morning, bidding for the session (which also includes one-on-one time with celeb trainer Don Scott and boxing fitness guru Michael Olajide, Jr.) was at $12,500.
"With your help, Marc, I think we can get to $20,000," Jackman said.
Will he workout shirtless for $25,000?
"Sure!" he said. "No problem. You know me, I'm a whore. I think I was shirtless for the whole time in my first movie in Australia and I think I only made about $4,000."
You think that's all I got for you from the sexy Aussie? Nope. I've got more. Come back later to find out what he said about rumors that Taylor Lautner was in the running for a role in the upcoming X-Men: First Class flick and the possibility of Wolverine popping up in The Avengers.
