Los Angeles - Hugh Jackman's body is "ridiculous" in person.

The 44-year-old actor has gotten in shape to reprise the role of Wolverine for X-Men: Days of Future Past and his co-star Ellen Page has been impressed by his physique on set.

She told E! Online: "It's as or more [ridiculous] in person. I might have caught him with his shirt off and I was like 'Dang! How much time does that take?!'"

Ellen's last X-Men movie was 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand with Hugh and Halle Berry and she loves that the cast have reunited for the prequel, along with the new franchise stars including Jennifer Lawrence.

'I couldn't be more excited'

She said: "It's been awesome. It's felt like a reunion and [with] a whole new cast that's sick. You have Jennifer Lawrence and James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender. I couldn't be more excited to be back.

"I think it's awesome. I think Bryan Singer is making an incredibly epic film."

Director Bryan recently revealed his hopes that the mix of older and newer faces - including Sir Ian McKellen as Magneto from the original trilogy and Jennifer as Mystique from First Class - will entice all audiences.

He explained: "We wanted an opportunity to bring some of the favourite older and younger characters together."

Other A-list stars who are set to reprise their roles from the various X-Men films include Sir Patrick Stewart, Anna Paquin and Shawn Ashmore.
