EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Australian movie star Hugh Jackman was in Seoul on Monday (July 15) to promote his latest action blockbuster "The Wolverine." Jackman plays a super hero who possesses animal-keen senses, enhanced physical capabilities and a healing factor enabling him to live beyond a normal human lifespan. In the film, he travels to modern-time Japan where he faces in a lethal battle and inner struggles against his unending life and great power, making him powerless for the first time. Jackman said he's been playing Wolverine for 13 years as he puts all angers inside of him on studio and get home peacefully. "I think it is probably a very good thing to play Wolverine for so many years because I get all of whatever angers inside of me is spent on set. I am very nice and calm when I get home. I am not a method actor and apart from the mutton chops Wolverine does not enter my house," he said. Wearing a grey suit Jackman walked into the red carpet event venue receiving enthusiastic welcome from local fans in Seoul.
