Recalling a past incident where a friend of his son was gushing over the 48-year-old, Jackman told the host Stephen Colbert: “Dad is nothing like Wolverine. He’s not tough, he’s not cool.”

“I remember my son having a friend come over. He was about 13 (at the time),” Jackman recalled.

He added: “The guy was peppering him with Wolverine questions and my son was like, nothing. Finally I hear this ‘Listen, dad is nothing like Wolverine. He’s not tough, he’s not cool. Don’t ask me anything about it’.”


Jackman currently stars in Logan, the latest of the Wolverine spin-off series. It is his last appearance as Wolverine.

The show is aired in India on Star World Premiere HD.
