Hugh Jackman: The Rock’s diet is crazy
Jul 20, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
Hugh Jackman thinks Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s 6,000 calorie a day diet is ”crazy”.
The 44-year-old actor relied on his Hollywood pal to help him bulk up to reprise his titular role in new superhero movie ‘The Wolverine’ – after losing a considerable amount of weight filming musical movie ‘Les Miserables’ – and the ‘Fast & Furious 6’ star advised him to follow his own gruelling fitness regime.
Hugh told BANG Showbiz: ”I called my buddy The Rock for tips. I lost weight doing ‘Les Mis’. He said, ‘Here’s the deal – three hours in the gym and 6,000 calories, eating very lean. You gotta do that for six months.’ I did it and let me tell you, The Rock is crazy! He is insane. But we did it and the results are there.”
Hugh’s superhero diet mainly consisted of protein-packed chicken breasts, but the star admits he can no longer stand the sight of them after filming the movie.
He added: ”Let me just say, I will not be eating chicken breasts for lunch anymore!”
Dwayne, 41, recently revealed his strict diet and exercise plan as he films new action movie, ‘Hercules: The Thracian Wars’, which includes no less than seven meals a day over a course of 22 weeks mainly consisting of chicken, halibut fish, broccoli, asparagus, baked potatoes and egg whites.
