The Rock Helps Hugh Jackman, New Batista Movie Trailer, Jesse Ventura Lawsuit Update
- Yahoo! has an article about WWE Hall of Famer Jesse "The Body" Ventura's lawsuit proceeding against slain "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle, who is considered to be the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history. A federal judge ruled on Thursday that Kyle's widow will proceed as the defendant. Ventura is suing Kyle for defamation after Kyle claimed to punch someone in a 2006 bar fight, which he later revealed to be Ventura. Ventura claims that the fight never took place.
- Actor Hugh Jackman recently revealed to Bang Showbiz, via Contact Music, that The Rock helped him get buff for Wolverine after he lost a lot of weight for Les Miserables. He said that he reached out to the Rock for tips, who told him to to spend three hours a day in the gym and eat 6,000 calories very lean for six months.
"I did it and let me tell you, The Rock is crazy! He is insane," Jackman said. "But we did it and the results are there."
As noted earlier this week, both Jackman and The Rock were among the 5 highest paid actors from June 2012-June 2013.
