Apologies for the delays in updates. Between my birthday and a trip to New York, things have been a little hectic. But without further ado: on May 9th, Hugh Jackman and wife Deborra-Lee Furness attended the 2013 Joyful Heart Foundation Gala. The event was to raise awareness for sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse. The Joyful Heart Foundation was founded by Hugh and Deb’s friend, Mariska Hargitay (of “Law & Order: SVU”), after she received numerous letters from fans talking about issues her show tackled. A few photos from the evening have been added to the gallery.
In a recently released video, Hugh Jackman encourages fans to stop by their local comic book shops on May 4th. The reason? It’s the Free Comic Book Day, held annually on the first Saturday of May. Participating comic stores will offer free goodies from publishing groups such as Marvel and DC. For more information on the event, check out their website. May the Fourth be with you!
Yesterday, Hugh Jackman took some time out of his day to answer fan questions regarding his upcoming film, The Wolverine. The interview was conducted via Twitter, in which fans were encouraged to submit questions, which would then be answered by Hugh in a live stream. There are eleven videos total – all of them pretty short – which you can view below.
Yesterday, X-Men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer tweeted the above image. A perfect teaser of what to expect regarding Hugh Jackman’s seventh take on the mutant, it appears he’ll have a thick head of hair once again. My guess as to why they kept his face hidden is that his chops haven’t quite grown in yet, but at least we know he’ll be styled with a wig and classic, Logan-esque leather jacket.
Finally, we’re getting our first look at Hugh Jackman’s upcoming film, Prisoners. Entertainment Tonight was on the set to provide an exclusive behind the scenes sneak peek. Hugh talks about the project throughout, tackling the subject of missing family members and how he can relate to that fear. Co-star Jake Gyllenhaal also sat down to discuss the film, and he unsurprisingly comments on how kind Hugh is while maintaining professionalism. Seems like his Nicest Guy in Hollywood title is staying put.
