Hugh Jackman has admitted that he is scaling back on his movie stunts following a horrific mishap on his new superhero blockbuster 'The Wolverine' sets.

During a recent interview with GQ magazine, the ‘Les Miserables’ star said that in the film, he was required to swing from inside to outside a train for a scene, News.com.au reported.

The Oscar-nominated actor, 44, asserted that his neck got caught while filming the particular shot and he thought that his neck had broken.

The Aussie actor insisted that it was one of those moments when his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, looked at him and said, ‘what are you doing? Enough playing in the schoolyard!

You are not invincible!’ Jackman added to the publication that he is now smarter about using a stunt double.
