Hugh Jackman and Michael Fassbender danced to Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines' track in between takes on the 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' set and James McAvoy got in on the action too

Hugh Jackman and Michael Fassbender danced around to 'Blurred Lines' in between takes for 'X-Men: Days of Future Past'.

The 45-year-old actor confessed his co-star was "very taken" to Robin Thicke's video where an unrated version shows models Emily Ratajkowski, Elle Evans and Jessi M'Bengue dancing in skin-colored G-strings.

Jackman told The Sun newspaper: "Michael was particularly enamoured with the video to 'Blurred Lines'.

"Which version? I think we all know what one ... he was very taken."

Jackman reprises his role as Wolverine, while Fassbender plays Magneto, and in character they would "strut about" re-enacting the original footage.

He added: "We'd strut about. I used to play the song in between takes on the 'X-Men' set. It was a lot of fun. Everyone would just go into character and we'd be strutting around. It was identical to the video but we'd be mutants."

James McAvoy joined in on the fun too, and Jackman was particularly impressed with their vocal range.

He continued: "I didn't need to take the high bits. You'd be surprised what talented singers Michael and James are. They could get up there."

When the mutants of the future face extinction, they send Wolverine (Jackman) back in time to change destiny. The finale is too effects-heavy and non-fans may question whether it all makes sense, but the principal players are all on top form and the slick direction and smart writing are at times enormously entertaining.
