“Did he tell you about the steroids?” Joe Rogan asked podcast guest Kevin Rose after he mentioned that he had used the same trainer as Hugh Jackman. “He did not tell me about the steroids.” replied Kevin jokingly. Rogan then went off on a signature tirade, “I am 100% confident that guy did steroids, look at his body, Hugh Jackman got fucking jacked and he’s 40 years old.”
Rogan went on to say, “I’m sure he was on a wonderful diet, I am also sure without a shadow of a doubt he was manipulating his hormones.” “Is it possible to get that big without steroids? If you’re 20.” Rogan seems to think the physique obtained by Jackman in preparation for the movie was not completely impossible with extreme dedication, but highly unlikely.
Rogan is a man who knows fitness, he is still in incredible shape himself and has admitted to using testosterone replacement therapy under the supervision of a doctor. Here you can see how well muscled he is at age 40.
With X-Men Apocalypse coming soon, Joe went on to make some great points about the movie industry which is not known to be the most saintly profession. With huge amounts of money at stake and with access to nearly unlimited resources, stars will do anything to convincingly portray a superhero. Why wouldn’t hollywood stars use a bit of chemical assistance?
