Hugh: Cold showers are all the rage; MOVIES.


HUGH Jackman came up with a bizarre way to channel his X-Men character's rage - by taking a cold shower every morning before filming.

The actor reprised his superhero role for X-Men Origins: Wolverine and made sure he was properly psyched up for his days on set.

In a bid to find Wolverine's inner anger Jackman forced himself to endure the freezing experience.

Jackman, 40, said: "It's surprisingly easy to find that inner rage.

"I do a little trick every morning. I stumbled upon this on X-Men 1. I had to get rid of my hairspray first thing in the morning but my wife was asleep and there was no hot water.

"So I turned the water on and was waiting and I got in and I couldn't make a noise.

"After 20 to 30 seconds I thought, 'This is exactly how Wolverine feels all the time.' It's that inner rage but you can't yell or do anything."
