Hugh JackmanHugh Jackman's diet these days is rivaling that of an Olympic athlete -- and it's all for an upcoming flick, according to the LA Times. Director Darren Aronofsky has reportedly asked the actor to bulk up for the next installment of 'Wolverine.'

"Right now, I'm at 210 [pounds]," Jackman said. "I was at 190 ... and [Aronofsky] said with the last one, 'Hey you looked great, but you're so tall that in those long shots you looked kind of like Clint Eastwood, and that's not Wolverine.'"

This isn't the first time the director has asked an actor to extremely alter his or her weight for a role. He recently had Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis shed a whopping 20 pounds for their roles in 'Black Swan.' But for his new role, Jackman needed to pack on every pound he could.
