Washington, May 9 (ANI): Hollywood actor Liev Schreiber, who portrays Victor Creed in X-Men, is disappointed that his X-Men toy figure looks like an angry squirrel.

Live’s character eventually adopts the mutant alter-ego of Sabretooth, opposite Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine in the flick, but the plastic figure of Sabretooth looks nothing more than an angry bushy squirrel, according to a disappointed Live.

“I have one complaint about it, not that I’m not excited to finally have an action figure after all these years, but I want to know what compelled the designers of this action figure to - I’m assuming they read the plotline for the movie and saw that I play this prehistoric game cat - but what possessed them to make me look like an angry squirrel. You can almost see the nuts (in the mouth)!” Contactmusic quoted Liev as saying.

On the other hand, Schreiber’s eldest son with Naomi Watts doesn’t hold the same opinion as his father, as he loves the toy and has a huge collection.

“He has a bag of toys, that he calls the turtle bag, that he puts his favourite toys in and it took a tense 15 minutes (before he put it in the bag),” Liev added. (ANI)
