Jackman said on the show that his Wolverine diet consisted of boiled chicken, broccoli and cauliflower.

“It’s not like I never had a cheat meal, ’cause I did,” the actor said.

“But for 17 years, I’ve kind of known, ‘Well, next year, you gotta get into shape…’ It kind of puts a bit of a damper on things.”
