Hugh Jackman Breaks His ‘Wolverine’ Diet With Pasta (Video)


By Cooking Panda

We’ve all been through our fair share of failed diets. So it’s easy to appreciate how much of a sacrifice Hugh Jackman has had to make over the last 17 years starring as everyone’s favorite Wolverine … sustaining himself on a diet of steamed chicken.

According to Foodbeast, Jackman’s final “Wolverine” movie will be released on March 2, 2017, and he stopped in to “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” while making his rounds to promote the new movie. After competing in Fallon’s famous Whisper Challenge, Jackman was offered a reward for his “win.” You’ll see in the video below that he didn’t quite win, but he’s winning at life, so it counts.

Fallon’s reward is a healthy portion of diet-breaking pasta, prepared by Chef Mario Batali. Jackman’s surprise was well worth Batali’s dramatic pasta entrance — featuring a giant bowl of what appears to be fettucine noodles dressed in parmesan to the max. Chef Batali also brought in a few giant glasses of red wine to wash it down. Surely, this is the perfect answer to the end of a strict diet and a marvelous movie saga.

When Jackman witnessed the surprisingly large (you’ll see, it’s like the size of two of their heads) bowl, he exclaimed, “That is the greatest freaking thing I’ve ever seen in my life.” Yes, yes of course it is. There’s a reason the rest of us struggle with diets. A big part of that reason is the fact that pasta is just so tasty.

Check out the video below to witness the Whisper Challenge, followed by Jackman’s surprise reward. Try not to get too jealous! He has earned it, after all.
