Hugh Jackman Earns Guinness World Record Title for His Marvel Career as Wolverine

The ageless Hugh Jackman's commitment to his Marvel alter-ego Wolverine is finally being recognized. Took ya long enough to get here, bub.

Sharing the distinction with Sir Patrick Stewart, who plays Charles Xavier AKA Professor X, Jackman was presented with a certificate yesterday from the Guinness World Record for his record of the longest career as a live-action Marvel super hero.

Hugh Jackman Earns Guinness World Record Title for His Marvel Career as Wolverine

The Emmy/Tony/Grammy award-winning actor, who is one Oscar away from being inducted to the exclusive EGOT club, began his 17-year (or 16 years 228 days, to be exact) Marvel career with Stewart with 2000's "X-Men," culminating in the critically-acclaimed 2017's "Logan."

As shared with Guinness, Jackman had his eyes set on being a record breaker since he was young. "When I was a kid, the Guinness Book of Records was it," shared Jackman. "That's it, I've made it! This is why I got into showbiz, thank you."

His first attempt was "most coins snatched off at the elbow" when he was 10, before moving on to "longest marathon playing badminton, singles" with his brother.

He is the best there is at what he does but what he does best isn't very nice. That's not true, he'll always be my Wolvie.
