Hugh Jackman Actually Has Scars On From Wolverine's Claws

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

“I stabbed the [stunt] double for Mystique right in the arm,” he recalled of a previous X-Men film. “Of course I freaked out a little bit. It’s not every day you stab someone.”

“She said, ‘I’ve been stabbed by Wolverine!’ That was one of the first days of shooting. That’s when you realize this is not a normal character, when people are really happy to be stabbed by your character.”

Jackman added 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.”
