Hugh Jackman, AKA Wolverine, has broken a new world record.

He's been given a Guinness World Record for having the longest career as a live-action superhero.

Hugh Jackman has played Wolverine in six X-men films.

He's been in the series since the first X-men film in 2000. He last played Wolverine in the 2017 film, "Logan".

He's sharing the award with his co-star Sir Patrick Stewart, who played Professor Charles Xavier in the series.

When he received the award, Jackman said: "When I was a kid, the Guinness Book of Records was it, my brother and I thought - badminton, you don't have to play it hard, two nights without sleep — we can definitely do that!"
