AUSTRALIAN actor Hugh Jackman showed off an injured right eye during a press conference in Sydney - but the accident didn't happen while filming his upcoming Wolverine sequel.

Jackman sported a red right eye at the media event, held to promote his new film The Wolverine and also featured the film's director James Mangold and Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard.

He told the crowd the injury wasn't because of training for the action movie, but rather "a very energetic game of tag with my kids", which he thought burst a blood vessel.

Jackman said it wasn't easy getting back into shape for the part, particularly coming from his last role as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables.

"That was a particular challenge because Les Mis, I had to start at 83 kilos and I finished at about 97 kilos by the end of the movie," he said.
