Actor Hugh Jackman says he loves to ski, but is not great at it.
"I love skiing.
I picked it up when I was 18 so never got great but tried to learn it," Jackman said in a statement.
It was for this love that the actor opted to do several ski jumping scenes in "Eddie the Eagle" -- about a British underdog ski jumper who made it big at the 1988 Winter Olympics -- himself.
The actor says he had fun doing the scenes of the film, which will air in India on Star Movies Select HD on Saturday.
Talking about skiing, Jackman's co-star Taron Egerton said: "I learnt it for the movie and I am okay. I was getting there and naturally my instinct is self-preservation before I think but Hugh's awesome."
