10 Actors who Got Huge For Movie Roles

Hugh Jackman

How much has the superhero bulk-up changed over the last decade and a half? Just look at Hugh Jackman, who was in admirable shape when he doffed his shirt for the original X-Men back in 2000, but is now yolked within an inch of his life for this summer’s X-Men Days of Future Past.

(Jackman’s muscle-building diet is so precisely plotted that his shooting schedules are constructed around it.) Wolverine’s mutant power keeps him from aging at a normal rate, but it sure doesn’t inhibit gaining muscle.
