Wolverene, Heartbroken

(image via coverbrowser)

He's the best at what he does and what he does not do is emote. Feelings are not to be indulged (Averted Gaze), they are to be studiously avoided at all costs and compartmentalized into the sea of memories and memory implants that populate the busy theater that is Wolverene's adamantium-laced skull. So it was in error that Hugh Jackman spoke when he reflected in the Wolverene leak and displayed anything other than his retractable, unbreakable claws. Man up, Hugh. From EOnline:

"Hugh Jackman isn't a happy mutant right now.

"The Aussie actor is lamenting the Internet leak of a rough cut of his would-be blockbuster, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a month before its May 1 release.

"'It's a serious crime and there's no doubt it's very disappointing — I was heartbroken by it,' Jackman told reporters at a press conference in Sydney to kick off a worldwide promotional tour for the prequel. 'Obviously, people are seeing an unfinished film. It's like a Ferrari without a paint job.'"

Replace "Ferrari" with "Harley" and "heartbroken" with "berzerker raged," and you'll capture the true measure of the mutant.
