Yesterday, September 18th, Hugh Jackman appeared on “The View” to talk about Prisoners. Some of the discussion is about his son, Oscar, and the time he lost him while at a park at Sydney’s Bronte Beach. In this case, he was lucky paparazzi were nearby, as one photographer eventually alerted Hugh to his son’s presence: he was hiding in a tree! Hugh also talked about Swordfish and how his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, reacted to a particularly racy scene in the film. Click the still image above to check out the video (he appears after the second commercial break, around fifteen minutes in).
I’ve not had a chance to watch this yet, but please enjoy!
On September 13th, Hugh Jackman stopped by Universal Studios Hollywood to chat with “Extra’s” Maria Menounos. As part of the Prisoners promo tour, they talk about the film, including the question “how far would you go if your child went missing?” At the end of the interview – which is just under five minutes long – Hugh takes over hosting duties, honoring the would-be career if he hadn’t gone into acting.
Earlier today (September 7th), Hugh Jackman attended the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival to continue his promotion of Prisoners. After a brief photo call with the cast – including Jake Gyllenhaal, Maria Bello, Melissa Leo, Paul Dano, and Terrence Howard – he joined them for a press conference. Along with director Denis Villeneuve, they answered various questions during a 40-minute panel, which you can watch below.
Although Hugh Jackman just went through a press tour with The Wolverine, he’s back in business to promote his upcoming Warner Brothers film, Prisoners. Currently, he and co-star Jake Gyllenhaal are in Toronto together – specifically, the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) – to help promote the film.
A few interviews have already emerged, which I’ve shared in this post. Follow HJF on Twitter to get alerts on new interviews, or just keep checking back on this post for added videos.
Earlier this year, Hugh Jackman sat down with Oprah Winfrey to chat about his life and career. The special aired last Sunday, but there are a few noteworthy clips online if you happened to miss the broadcast. Click on the image above for a few videos of Hugh talking about his Wolverine workout (in which Oprah very audible admires his rock-hard, Photoshop-esque abs), his biggest fears (including what he was afraid of as a child), and how he and his wife deal with married life in the public eye (Deborra-Lee Furness does make an appearance).

On Wednesday, July 24th, Hugh Jackman made another appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.” As was the case last time, they had great rapport throughout and even played a little game at the end — this time, one that involved beer and vodka. Fallon recently introduced a baby girl into the world – his first child – so Hugh gives him some fatherhood advice in the interview, including a book to detail various special moments. There also a great ongoing joke about “the clamps” in the second clip which is very, very funny (while tying into The Wolverine). Definitely check this interview out, before Hulu takes them down.
After attending “Good Morning America” on July 24th, Hugh Jackman headed to AMC Empire 25 in New York to talk to Mamarazzi. “The Moms,” Denise Albert and Melissa Musen Gerstein,” interviewed Hugh and introduced him to 1,800 miniature cupcakes provided by Baked By…Melissa. Following an exclusive screening to parents and their children, there was a short Q&A in which Hugh spoke about whether or not he sees his own kids turning to acting, how he protects them from the internet, and advice on realizing your dreams. You can check out a compilation video below with some highlights from the event.
On July 24th, Hugh Jackman was up early to appear on “Good Morning America.” Of course, he talked about his forthcoming movie, The Wolverine, but there was a special emphasis on his fitness regime. Where most interviews only provide talk regarding his workout routine, Hugh’s trainer David Kingsbury was on hand to show audiences some techniques to stay in shape. There are two different videos, which you can watch below: the first features Hugh talking, while the other is the outdoor training session (in which Hugh doesn’t talk much).
Earlier today (July 23rd), Hugh Jackman attended a special screening for The Wolverine. At the AMC Empire in New York, he stopped by to introduce the film to legions of fans waiting for an early viewing. You can find a lot of fan pictures over on HJF’s Tumblr, and someone has generously uploaded a video from the event which includes Hugh answering a few questions.
