In a resurfaced 2009 interview with Howard Stern, renowned actor Hugh Jackman discussed his experience while filming the $407 million-grossing X-Men Origins: Wolverine. During the conversation, the Australian actor shed light on a memorable scene that involved him going naked. Jackman revealed his willingness to go au naturel for the sequence depicting Wolverine’s escape from the Weapon X facility after the adamantium bonding process, albeit with one humorous caveat: “The only problem is the PG-13 rating.”

The actor delighted the audience with a story about a rather unexpected encounter during the shooting of the Weapon X flashback scene.

Their unexpected presence led to a comical and unforgettable moment as they playfully cheered him on, waving dollar bills in a lighthearted show of support. Jackman’s retelling of this hilarious incident showcases the camaraderie and offbeat experiences that can occur behind the scenes of a blockbuster film.

Furthermore, Jackman also shared an intriguing detail about a wrapped gift he received from the director. He explained that his parting present consisted of a bag containing the film footage that had been removed, including frames featuring his n*de scenes. Jackman humorously recalled, “So I’ve got frames of film, like ‘OK, hello!'”

Ryan Reynolds, a close friend and fellow actor who has engaged in a long-standing playful feud with Jackman, also chimed in, commenting, “Excited for them to do the same for Deadpool. It’s time children knew.” Deadpool, starring Reynolds as the irreverent antihero, received an MA15+ rating in Australia due to its graphic violence, language, nudity, and s*xual references.

Fans also eagerly joined the conversation, noting that X-Men: Days of Future Past also contains the use of the F-bomb, making it possibly the first film on the streaming service to feature such colorful language. Twitter user Empire A. L. C highlighted this, stating,

“X-Men: Days of Future Past is on Disney+ now, but it’s actually left uncensored. This a** scene is left alone, and it’s the first movie on Disney+ to have an F-bomb.”
