In an interview with 60 Minutes on Sunday night, Hugh Jackman regaled the audience with some insight into his childhood, aspirations, family life, and love for his father. The viewers also got to see his famous brawn as he worked out in a gym. The interview was a touching piece that allowed Jackman's many dimensions to be seen.
Hugh Jackman, an Australian actor, discussed his latest role as Jean Valjean in Les Miserables. He stated that this role was the "Mount Everest" of roles and he had to seize the moment. He explained the unique approach the film took to the musical aspect, which gave him so much autonomy on how to play his character.
Jackman also took the audience on a journey to his childhood school, The Knox School, and had shared a humorous anecdote. But more importantly, that was where he discovered his passion for theatre and acting.
He also touched on his former roles of Wolverine and Peter Allen, sharing again a funny story about a particular night as Peter Allen when an audience member shouted at him.
Jackman explained how he met his wife, Deborra, on the set of his first role and they have been married ever since. He stressed the importance of family, a value he draws from his father's soft and gentle teachings.
