Hugh Jackman taking a break

Los Angeles - Hugh Jackman is taking a break from acting.

The Wolverine star - who has adopted children, Oscar, 13 and eight-year-old Ava, with wife Deborra-Lee Furness - has revealed he's taking some time away from the movie industry as he feels "greedy" after starring in four consecutive films.

Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Australian radio station 2Day FM, he said: "I'm taking a little while off, I don't know if I'm taking a year, this movie now is my fourth movie a row. I'm being very greedy. There's a thing called being in the dog box, that's me."

The 44-year-old actor has to bare the flesh in his new movie The Wolverine - which is part of the X-Men film universe - but he admits he has no qualms about stripping down as it's his job as an actor to flaunt his hunky body, and he feels at ease wandering around back stage without any clothes on as it's deemed "normal".

Hugh - who has portrayed the claw-wielding mutant on six occasions - explained: "You know the guys that really like being naked, I'm not one of those, but I have no issues, actors you've kind of got to, that's part of the territory. If you've ever been to theatre backstage nudity is pretty much as normal as wearing clothes."
