Want to workout with weights and Wolverine?


Have you ever wanted to pump iron with Wolverine, played by Hugh Jackman? Then now is your chance, as the actor needs to bulk up for shooting X-Men Origins: Wolverine 2, and besides eating six meals a day, that means a lot of trips to the gym. For one of those trips, he’s willing to share the space with a fan – for a cost.

Yes, Jackman is auctioning off a “heart-pounding Wolverine Workout” with him and celebrity trainer Don Scott. The proceeds will go to The Global Poverty Project and its current 1.4 Billion Reasons campaign, meant to encourage average joes to get involved in the anti-poverty movement. Jackman is a vocal proponent of the organization and spoke at a screening event at NYC’s Museum of Modern Art.

If you’ve got the cash and are looking to bulk up yourself (and think one hour will do it), then you can place your bid here through November 11. As of publication, the bidding is already up to $2,600, so only the serious fans need apply. Lower your expectations a tad, though: I doubt he’ll have the sideburns.
