OK, so it looks like Hugh Jackman may not be going as vegan as we were lead to believe.

The 42-year-old has just started training and bulking up to prepare for his transformation into the buff “Wolverine” — and recently revealed a bit about his eating for the role.

“I’ll be the one with four chicken breasts on my plate,” Hugh joked, speaking with Access Hollywood.

“It’s hard training and a lot of eating. It sounds gluttonous, but it’s really not. It’s just kind of hard,” he continued. “Four chicken breasts at 10:30 in the morning with brown rice and steamed broccoli is not a lot of fun, let me tell you.”

We know for a fact that vegan athelte nutritionist Brendan Brazier has been brought on to help sculpt Jackman — and it’s very likely that the actor is referencing his eating habits from the previous film; for which he said “I ate so many chickens to make this body. If there is a place in hell for people who eat chickens, I have booked a suite bigger than anybody.”

Said Brazier recently in an interview with VegNews:

“There’s a very good chance [he’ll go vegan], and even if he doesn’t completely, a large amount of his diet will be,” he said. “And I think that’s huge, I mean he’s not going to be eating all this chicken; he’s going to build up naturally. What I’m really excited about is that I think it’s going to draw in a whole new audience that would know nothing about it—they wouldn’t even know what vegan is—a lot of teenage kids who love his Wolverine character and want to eat like him.”
