Hugh’s a real pain in the neck

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

HOL­LY­WOOD hardman Hugh Jack­man nar­rowly es­caped DEATH on the set of his lat­est movie.

The tough-guy claimed he al­most broke his neck while play­ing a sav­age su­per­hero in The Wolver­ine.

The 44-year-old, who plays the claw-fisted mu­tant for the sixth time, said: “In the film, there’s a scene where I swing from in­side to out­side a train and my neck got caught.

“I thought I had bro­ken it.”

Al­though he es­caped se­ri­ous in­jury, Hugh has made a prom­ise to his wor­ried wife De­borra-Lee Fur­ness.

So he’s plan­ning to leave danger­ous on-screen ex­ploits to ex­pert stunt-men.

He added: “It was one of those mo­ments when my wife looked at me and said, ‘What are you do­ing? Enough play­ing in the school­yard! You are not in­vin­ci­ble!’”
