The Australian actor played Logan/Wolverine in the X-Men film series between 2000 and 2017 and is set to reprise the role in Ryan Reynolds's upcoming Deadpool 3. During a recent interview for HBO's Who's Talking to Chris Wallace, presenter Chris asked Hugh whether he had ever taken steroids to bulk up for the part. "Over the years people have wondered, did he juice?" Did he take steroids?" he questioned. In response, Hugh insisted he never had been tempted as he was aware of the "side effects" "No, I love my job. And I love Wolverine," he explained.
