“No, I love my job. I love Wolverine,” Jackman said in an interview with Chris Wallace. “I have to be careful what I say here, but I’ve been told anecdotally what the side effects are. [steroids]. And I said, “I don’t like it very much.” So no, you did it the old school way. And I tell you, I ate [so many] Chicken…literally, karma is not good for me. If God has anything to do with chickens, I’m in trouble.”

I thought it was a make-up animal…and so I was passing by while I was doing a rehearsal in IMAX, they had this documentary about wolves. And I was like, Perfection, because obviously I’m a wolf, part wolf.”
