Jackman auctions bare-chest workout
HUGH Jackman is auctioning off an exercise session with him for charity - and he is prepared to do it bare-chested.
The Australian actor is offering his gym expertise to one lucky bidder to raise money for New York City's Summit School for children with learning and adjustment challenges.
Fans can bid at website charitybuzz.com and Hugh - who famously bulked up for his role as Wolverine in the 'X-Men' trilogy and subsequent spin-off film 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' - is happy to strip to the waist if it ups the amount.
When asked if he will work out shirtless, he said: "Sure! No problem. You know me, I'm a whore. I think I was shirtless for the whole time in my first movie in Australia and I think I only made about $4,000."
The 41-year-old star is happy to show the eventual winner just how hard he trains for his action films, or just do a light routine and have some fun.
He added to E!: "If someone comes in and says, 'I want to try it exactly how you train. I want to just go as hard as we can,' we'll go there.
"But I don't want people to feel intimidated if they want to come and experience it but not keel over.
"Put it this way, if you want to throw up, there's every opportunity. But if you want to come and have a light sweat, want to have a bit of fun, maybe an autograph or two, you can do that as well."
The current highest bid stands at $12,500 and has been placed by user belle2000.
The auction ends at 4pm EDT on Thursday (15.07.10).
