Hugh Jackman is now a world record holder. And he’s not alone. Sir Patrick Stewart joins him in the honor.
Both Jackman and Stewart are being recognized for their roles in the "X-Men" franchise -- Jackman for Wolverine and Steward for Professor Charles Xavier, Guinness World Records announced in a release.
They both have played their roles for 16 years and 228 days both starring in the original “X-Men” movie and culminating in 2017’s “Logan.” They both are killed in “Logan.”
Jackman was surprised with the honor Wednesday on ITV's "This Morning" by Craig Glendary, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records.
Jackman said he’s always wanted to be listed among the world records.
But his honor of being named the longest career as a live-action Marvel superhero will be featured in the Guinness World Records 2020.
And while Jackman is being celebrated as a Marvel superhero, his next role is as a song and dance man, as he goes on tour for his worldwide stage show “
” that kicks off in Glasgow on May 7, before heading to the the U.S. in June.
