    The Wolverine might have big cojones on screen, but actor Hugh Jackman almost lost his while filming. According to the 45-year-old actor, he almost castrated himself with Wolverine’s claws while shooting a nude scene. “There was a very intense first scene and I insisted on a closed set. I ran around the corner and all the female members of the crew were gathered there. I tried to cover myself and cut my inner thigh,” Jackman said on The Graham Norton Show. After that, he said, “The metal claws had to go—you can’t have bits and pieces flying off.”
