Marvel's X-Men Hugh Jackman is a Guinness World Record holder
New Delhi : Actor Hugh Jackman's long-awaited dream to have a Guinness World Record on his name has been fulfilled. He holds the award for having the Longest Career as a Live Action Marvel Superhero.
The Wolverine star received the honour during a surprise presentation on British TV show This Morning on Wednesday, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Hugh, who has played the character for 16 years and 228 days, shares the honour with his X-Men castmate Sir Patrick Stewart, who has portrayed Professor Charles Xavier (Professor X) for the same amount of time.
“When I was a kid, the Guinness Book of Records was it… That’s it, I’ve made it! This is why I got into showbiz, thank you,” he said.
Speaking at a radio show recently he mentioned about how badly he wanted his name on Guinness Book of World Records.
“My dream as a kid, both my brother and I, was to be in the Guinness Book of Records one day. We tried to stay up and play badminton for 48 hours, we tried to flip coins off our elbow, and I just realised maybe I’m there now, I don’t know,” he had said.
