Hugh Jackman looks tough and hard as Logan on the big screen, but in real life, he’s just a teddy bear. THR reports the actor newly shared that he cried while reading a scene for the film, as well as when he saw it in theaters. Obviously, there are spoilers below.
Jackman says he got misty eyed when X-23 returned to Logan’s grave and turned his cross into an “X”, signifying the X-Men symbol…
“When I read it, I thought ‘that’s beautiful.’ It seemed very poetic on the page. And when I saw it, I cried. I sat next to Patrick Stewart. We saw it for the first time, and both of us wept. There’s something so patient and courageous in a filmmaker to allow everything to culminate in that one moment.”
It was a brilliant scene for sure, but I’m cautious of praising James Mangold anymore as he’s been a runaway train of “I revolutionized hero films” statements ever since the film released. I am happy that Jackman was happy and satisfied with the ending.
