Wolverine seems ageless, but Hugh Jackman is definitely aging.

Mr. Jackman, who turned 46 last month, gets tired more easily than he used to — or so he said after giving a fuzzy answer during a recent interview. He’s coming off his third treatment for skin cancer in the last year. He finds himself looking at role models like Paul Newman and Richard Burton and wanting more for his career, and soon. He is attached to the next installment in the hugely popular “X-Men” series yet sounds almost sheepish about it, saying he wouldn’t mind if his role as Logan/Wolverine were smaller. (At least the movie character is still around; Wolverine just died in the X-Men comics.)
