Hugh Jackman 'never' lifted weights before 'X-Men'

Los Angeles: Actor Hugh Jackman says he has never lifted any weights before filming "X-Men".

The 48-year-old has had to bulk-up to portray the role of superhero Wolverine in the film franchise.

But Jackman says he used to find the idea of spending hours a day in the gym ridiculous, reports

"Before 'X-Men' I'd never lifted a weight in my life. I used to work at a gym and I'd make fun of all the guys in the weight room," Jackman told Metro newspaper.

"I thought the way they'd look in the mirror for two hours a day was ridiculous," he added.
