Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Professor X (Patrick Stewart) don't always see eye to eye on the big screen.

Hugh Jackman ended his tenure as Wolverine when he made his final appearance as the character in 2017's Logan.

"When I was a kid, I wanted to be in the Guinness Book of Records, a Guinness Book of Records was it", Jackman shared.

Hollywood hero Hugh Jackman, who has been a part of hits like The Prestige, Van Helsing, Swordfish, Australia, Real Steel and Prisoners, is better known and extremely popular for playing the Marvel superhero Wolverine, in the X-Men franchise movies and the Wolverine standalone movies.

Announced on the British daytime show This Morning, Jackman was surprised with the award while being interviewed as the show's guest, where Guinness World Records' Craig Glenday presented the certificate during filming.

Jackman shares his Guinness World Record title with his co-star Sir Patrick Stewart who plays the recurring role of Professor Charles Xavier. Jackman was greeted on This Morning with confetti, a video message from Stewart, and three showgirls-an award ceremony fit for a king.

"My brother and I thought - badminton, you don't have to play it hard, two nights without sleep - we can definitely do that!" he explained.

Both actors will appear in the next edition of the official Guinness World Records book.
