Hugh Jackman has gone back in time to interview himself for a new Yahoo! Movies skit.

2014 Hugh sits down with his 1999 self to discuss the future of the “X-Men” movies as ’90s Jackman prepares to star in the first film of the franchise.

Younger Hugh learns he has become the world’s biggest movie star in 2014 thanks in part to the success of his “X-Men” Wolverine character and his older self reveals he’ll make great films with Christopher Nolan (“The Prestige”) and Darren Aronofsky, whose “The Fountain” will change his life.

But the modern-day Hugh warns the younger actor to steer clear of movie bomb “Movie 43.”

He says, “When they come to you with an idea of putting testicles around your neck and being part of this hilarious group and ensemble of some of the funniest movies of all time don’t believe them.

“You could take the testicles because you use it quite a lot at parties… It gets a good laugh, but the movie you can do without doing it.”
