By Adam S. Levy For Dailymail. Howard Stern knows how to get A-listers taking about their private parts. Such was the case with Hugh Jackman, who told the King of All Media in a newly-rehashed April 30, interview, that he received a bag full of nude outtakes of himself as a parting gift from the director of his film that year, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. The anecdote was making headlines Thursday amid the massive success of Jackman's new release, Logan. Stern, 63, asked the year-old Logan leading man, 'You're not afraid to show your penis on film, are you? Goodie bag: Hugh Jackman, 48, revealed in a newly-unearthed Howard Stern interview that director Gavin Hood gave him a collection of outtakes that revealed his nudity at the conclusion of X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Just like any other aspect of playing his iconic X-Men character, Jackman didn't hold back, going completely nude on set for the scene in which Wolverine escapes Weapon X after having Adamantium grafted onto his skeleton. In a recently unearthed interview with Howard Stern, Jackman made it clear he has no problem with people seeing him naked. Let's do this! Let's do this!! Who's with me?! Up Next See Gallery. He said there were shots in which you could clearly see his penis, but those weren't the ones chosen for the film.
The hulky star - who is playing mutant Wolverine for the seventh time in the latest film - is shown in one scene getting out of bed, naked from behind. But instead of fretting about going nude, Jackman said he told director Bryan Singer the scene wouldn't work if he was wearing boxers or briefs. Bryan came up to me and said what do you think, boxers or briefs? He also revealed he had to wear a bright green sock on a part of his anatomy that wasn't a foot so special effects artists could erase any threats to the film's PG rating. Co-star Jennifer Lawrence was similarly relaxed about wearing little more than a coating of blue paint for her role as the shape-shifting Mystique, he added. Praising the Oscar-winning actress for her down-to-earth attitude, Jackman said Lawrence had even won his son over after a trip to a local theme park. He said Lawrence crashed the excursion after overhearing father and son planning a rollercoaster ride.
X-Men: Days of Future Past star Hugh Jackman will bare all to his fans in the upcoming film, but he forgot to warn his 8-year-old daughter about his nude scene in the film. Jackman also admitted to injuring himself and two other people with his fake claws on the X-Men set. He stabbed and hit one woman in the face, but he assured her it was unintentional.
