I have always, aways had a HUGE crush on Hugh Jackman!!! I am a sucker for an actor who can take on Broadway by night and the Wolf Man as the day job! I loved when Hugh hosted the Tony awards, I melted!!!
Hugh Jackman is fascinating to me!! He keeps his personal life out of the tabloids, has been married for 16 years (which is a lot in Hollywood) and has two beautiful children! He just seems to have it all!
Now, Hugh Jackman opens up to PARADE about his role in Les Mis, taking risks, cherishing fatherhood, and what makes his 16-year marriage work.
On his partnership with his wife: “I am the pragmatic, steady, sensible one. Deb is the hilarious, fun, sexy, crazy, impractical one. When it comes to the kids, I’m strict and she’s lenient. But deep down, we’re very similar. We get each other completely without ever having to speak, and we have pretty much since day one.”
Wow…. I did not think that Hugh would be the tough one! I assumed he would be the one you can get to do anything you want!
Being Dad!: “I feel so lucky to have both a son and a daughter, because there’s a different relationship with each of them. Instinctively as a man, you know what your son has to go through. So I think you’re a little tougher. … With a daughter, this protective side comes out. When I come home, my daughter will run to the door and give me a big hug, and everything that’s happened that day just melts away.”
Jackman shares some intel on the latest Wolverine film: “Okay, the movie takes place after X-Men: The Last Stand. My character is at his lowest. He is supposed to be able to heal himself, but he may encounter someone who has worked out a way to really hurt him. And there is a cameo from one of the past X-Men in it.”
Any airbrushing in those new photos of The Wolverine?: “No, I had to do it the hard way. Let me tell you, at 44 it’s not getting easier.”
Despite his extreme discipline, people don’t realize Jackman is a foodie: “My gosh, I love food. If I wasn’t an actor, I could be a completely different body shape right now. But I finished filming [The Wolverine] four days ago, so I’m eating pretty much anything that comes my way!”
I can not wait to see Les Mis!!!!! Did I say I can’t wait!!!! Check out the video of Jackman’s Les Mis costars dishing about him!
