Hugh Jackman urged movie bosses to ditch his superhero character Wolverine’s metal claws after he almost sliced off his private parts during a nude scene.

The actor thrilled his female fans by getting naked for 2013 film “The Wolverine,” but peeling off on set while wearing the razor sharp blades on his hands almost caused an eye-watering injury.

Jackman is adamant he enjoyed the “freeing” feeling of shedding his clothes, but producers were persuaded to replace the metal claws with a plastic pair when he came perilously close to cutting off his manhood as he tried to cover up in front of the female crew members.

He tells U.K. talk show host Graham Norton, “I quite enjoyed (being naked) really, it’s a very freeing feeling… There was a very intense first scene and I insisted on a closed set. I ran round the corner and all the female members of the crew were gathered there. I tried to cover myself and cut my inner thigh – it was just the inner thigh thankfully! The metal claws had to go – you can’t have bits and pieces flying off.”
