  • He was born on 12 October 1968, in Sydney to Grace McNeil (née Greenwood) and Christopher John Jackman.
  • He was raised solely by his father, as his parents separated when he was eight and his mother moved back to England.
  • Hugh didn’t always want to go down the acting path, he was actually studying to be a journalist at the University of Technology in Sydney. In his senior year, he took a drama theory class and the rest was history. Soon after, he started taking classes in the Western Australian Academy of Arts.
  • He truly started from the bottom before he attained his fame; at some point in his life he worked as a gas station attendant and a birthday party clown.
  • He’s not the only one enjoying the fame that his role as Wolverine brought him, apparently his son uses him to pick up girls… three words, ‘best wingman ever’.

  • He wears contacts, but not for cosmetic reasons, Hugh is terribly near-sighted and has extremely blurry vision when he isn’t putting them on.
  • We can all agree that his role in 2000’s X-Men was his break out role, well, he was actually a last minute addition to the cast. Dougray Scott was originally cast as Wolverine but he had to leave to film two extra months worth of shooting for Mission: Impossible 2.
  • He has Russell Crowe to thank for his role as Wolverine, after the Gladiator actor turned down the role, he personally recommended Jackman to director Bryan Singer for the part.
  • Acting is not the only talent he has up his sleeve, the star loves to sing and he especially loves to showcase that talent at his friend’s weddings. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban can testify to that.

‘ If someone’s going to spend their time saying, ‘You’re really not 6′ 2″; you’re 5′ 10″,’ I’ll tell them once, ‘I am 6′ 2″.’ Then, whatever you want to believe, it’s up to you.
