There’s a great new – albeit short – interview by New York Magazine on the launch of Laughing Man Coffee. Hugh Jackman is asked about his inspiration behind this new charity. He also talks about his current favorite restaurants and jokes about who he wants his son, Oscar, to marry in the future. (Hint: the wedding would no doubt be filled with wonderful food.) Check out an excerpt below, then head to the source for more. It’s also been added to the press archive.
Was it [Jean-Georges] who inspired Laughing Man?
Paul Newman did, actually. Eight years ago, I read the book written by his partner, and at that point, I thought, some day, I’d like to start that sort of business that gives back and has longevity. In every way, I look up to Paul Newman. From acting, to the way he handled himself; he’s just authentic. We want to make money and create jobs, but the profits after that, entirely going to charity.
