Hugh Jackman Fought to Show You His Naked Ass

Tired of seeing women be the only ones who have to let it all hang out in love scenes? So is Hugh Jackman. Here he is discussing why he felt it was important — nay, necessary — for Wolverine to give you the full cheek peek in X-Men Days of the Past of the Futures that Have Passed:

"I land back in 1973 - this is what the script says - I wake up next to a girl who I don't remember, and I get out of bed wearing boxer shorts. I was like, 'I don't know about America, but in Australia if you're next to a really good looking girl, you're not getting out with boxer shorts on or briefs or anything.' So yeah, I went commando. [...]

They bought a bright green sock for me to wear and I was like, this is kinda drawing more attention than less. They said no, we need bright green, like a green screen, so if you bend over or turn around, and we need to erase anything, we can. I said that's even weirder. They said please put it on, but the end of the first take I was like 'Ermm, it's gone, I don't know where it is.'"


It's not a directly feminist statement, but I do like the straight-forwardness of: "Why wouldn't I be naked the morning after having sex? I would be naked. Enough of these green socks."

Anyway, enjoy his ass for the sake of equality.
