One of Jackman’s biggest transformations occurred during the filming of a single movie: Les Miserables. In order to play Jean Valjean in the first part of the movie, Jackman lost 20 pounds, before gaining 30 to play the same character in the second part of the film. Later, the actor put on 25 pounds of solid muscle to play Wolverine in the character’s title film.
