Hugh Jackman nearly broke his neck on ‘The Wolverine’ set

Hugh+Jackman+ Making action movies definitely isn’t easy, but it can also be dangerous and Hugh Jackman knows it. While filming The Wolverine, the actor almost broke his neck when a stunt on top of a train almost went wrong.

He said: ”It doesn’t get any easier with action roles, that’s for sure. I almost broke my neck doing a stunt. Literally, there’s one scene in The Wolverine on a bullet train where I swing out from inside to outside, and my neck got caught and I actually thought I broke my neck. I went home early that day and it was one of those moments where my wife looked at me and was like, ‘What are you doing? It’s enough playing around in the schoolyard but you are not invincible’. It hits me all the time. But I do whatever I can for an old man.”
