“I can’t tell you how many people I stabbed, how I stabbed myself. They were killing machines.

“I stabbed the double for Mystique right in the arm. Of course I freaked out a little bit. It’s not every day you stab someone,” Jackman says.

The 48-year-old actor adds that he “used to have to practice so I wouldn’t hit people (with the claws). And one thing I neglected to practice was the follow-through...I’ve got a number of scars on my thighs, and it’s really not cool. Got pretty close to some sensitive areas, but everything’s fine.”
