Hugh Jackman staring at his claws

You can always trust Howard Stern to probe actors into revealing the most R-rated stories from their time on set. It has now been unearthed that the world famous shock jock did just that to Hugh Jackman back when the Australian was promoting X-Men Origins: Wolverine. As you'd expect from Howard Stern, the conversation soon turned to Hugh Jackman's penis. Jackman admitted that he had no qualms about revealing his manhood on screen, but unfortunately he couldn't do that for Origins because of its PG-13 rating. There was one particular scene that required Hugh Jackman to be completely naked during shooting, though, which meant that his entire body, in all of its glory, was caught on film. Director Gavin Hood knew exactly what to do with the snippets of film featuring Jackman's penis, too. As Jackman explained in this NSFW story,

The only problem is the PG-13 rating. When we finished the film, my wrap gift from the director was a bag with all the film cut off which had my dick in it. So I'm looking, I've got frames of film and am like, 'O-Kay' and 'Hell-oo.'

I can only imagine that Hugh Jackman either has all of this film locked away for safekeeping, or that he immediately burned it to a cinder so that it would never result in a scandal. To be honest I think Gavin Hood missed a trick by not slicing a single frame of the footage into X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a la Tyler Durden in Fight Club. But that probably would have cost Origins its PG-13 rating.

As you could have guessed, Howard Stern didn't let up with his questions regarding Hugh Jackman's genitalia, as he asked whether or not the Les Miserables and Logan actor was happy with his size, to which Jackman responded,

It's pretty good, I think -- I'm fine. Everything's fine -- I'm a married man, and there's been no complaints there, so that's all I'm worried about.

Of course, Hugh Jackman had the perfect chance to be completely nude as Wolverine in Logan, which was proudly R-rated. However, instead of using this freedom to show full frontal male nudity, Logan used it for footage of decapitating heads and a tremendous amount of gory violence, which I think was the right call. Hugh Jackman is currently working on The Greatest Showman, a musical in which he plays P.T. Barnum, which is due for release on Christmas Day, 2017, and will also definitely not include footage of his penis.
