Hugh Jackman 'dresses as Wolverine in bed'

While most people take condoms to bed with them, Aussie hunk Hugh Jackman prefers props that are a little more dangerous.

The actor, star of new blockbuster The Wolverine, has revealed he likes to have sex with his wife while dressed as the character, The Sun reports.

Jackman has played Wolverine in numerous films - including X-Men, X2 and X-Men Origins: Wolverine - and it seems he has grown quite accustomed to donning the long-sharp blades that the superhero is famed for.

While his wife Deborra-Lee Furness said:" Oh my God, it's dreadful! Always with the claws. I'm like, 'mix the salad, put them to use, come on!" Jackman interrupted: "The sheets we go through …"

Although his other half may grow tired of him putting on the full outfit, there are likely to be many other women willing to let Wolverine - a muscle-bound and rugged being - ruin a sheet or two if it means they are allowed to get to grips with him in the bedroom.
