When it comes to shaping up for her latest role, Viola Davis is turning to one of the hottest bodies in Hollywood for inspiration: Hugh Jackman.
The actress says she's following the so-called "Wolverine diet" to play Susie Brown in the upcoming James Brown biopic, Get on Up.
"[I'm] losing a little weight. When I say 'a little,' I mean 'a little,' " she told PEOPLE Saturday at the Los Angeles Hammer Museum's 11th Annual Gala In The Garden. "I'm not a weight girl much."

Hugh Jackman will grow hair again. The Sexiest Oscar Host of the Year will star in a sequel to Wolverine that's now being prepared, with Jackson, 40, also serving as one of the producers.
The story will take place in Japan as the Marvel Comics character faces an inner battle between his killer animal instincts and his sense as a noble Samurai, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
