Washington, Oct 7 : Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman's dedication for his role in Baz Luhrmann's 'Australia' has stunned actress Nicole Kidman.
The actor worked out daily to obtain a toned body and learnt horse riding to get into his character of a stockman.
"Hugh's amazing because he has such athleticism. He could barely ride at the beginning of the film, but by the end he was a great horseman. He will make Aussie stockmen proud," Contactmusic quoted Kidman said, as saying.
Meanwhile, Jackman revealed that he adopted the diet of an Australian bodybuilding champ, who "wakes at four in the morning, has egg whites on dry toast, then goes back to bed so he gets some food in him before he trains at 6am."
"It's pretty fine eating. I got used to it - and my energy level went through the roof," he told Men's Journal magazine.
