Hugh Jackman dived in ocean for 'The Wolverine'

- Sydney, July 11 (IANS) Actor Hugh Jackman reveals he jumped into the ocean every morning to prepare for his role in "The Wolverine".
The 44-year-old said that he got into his character's mindset by taking a leap into the freezing cold water in Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia, where the film was shot.
"One thing I do now is I jump in the ocean every morning. It's pretty cold, but just that feeling - that's Wolverine. Like when you have to have a shower but there's only cold water and it really pisses you off? That's how he feels 24/7," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Jackman as saying.
Jackman also did quick workouts before his scenes in order to appear out of breath on camera.
"Sometimes you'll see me doing push-ups or squats before a take because I have to be out of breath on screen. I've made the mistake before of pretending to be out of breath, and then suddenly I'm hyperventilating and I'm almost passing out," he added.
