Wolverine Loose in Beverly Hills

Hugh Jackman -- sans razor sharp claws -- was caught outside of Mr. Chow last night -- and though he's rarely spotted in L.A., autograph hunters were somehow ready for him.

As the X-Man exited the Beverly Hills eatery with his wife, some autograph seekers wielding Wolverine pics swarmed them with demands for his John Hancock.

Hugh was overly gracious, but the whole thing begs the question: Do these autograph hounds just drive around with Wolverine pictures in their cars all day, hoping to run into the mutant?
