Hugh’s fuzzy inheritance

Hugh Jackman will be glad to hang up his Wolverine claws if only to put an end to all the gym sessions he has to go through to look like a comic book hero.

But there is one aspect of the character that comes really easily to the Aussie actor — his facial fuzz!

“I am not sure I am proud of the hairy chops and the ability to grow them, but it is something I inherited from my father,” says Hugh, whose eighth and final time as Wolverine will be in 2017 movie Logan .

“Facial hair is part of my heritage and it is one thing I can do relatively easily; in fact, I can do it in my sleep!”
