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.
What is more romantic than celebrating your wedding anniversary in front of an A-list crowd? On April 11th, Hugh Jackman and wife of 17 years, Deborra-Lee Furness, attended 2013’s Fashion of Haiti: One Million Hearts. They joined friend Donna Karan for the cause, in which 160+ exclusively designed papier-mâché hearts debuted before going for auction; their total raised will be donated to Karan’s charity, Urban Zen Foundation, which helps create jobs and enhances education of Haiti’s artisans.
I have added over 1,750 HQ Blu-ray screen caps of Hugh Jackman in Les Misérables. In it, he portrayed the lead character, Jean Valjean, so there were tons of opportunities to cap him throughout the long film. The images are very, very high-quality, so I hope you all enjoy.
When talking with Entertainment Weekly, Hugh Jackman discussed the return of Wolverine on film. “I was starting to see a life free of steamed chicken breasts,” he joked regarding getting the call about X-Men: Days of Future Past, which will mark his seventh time portraying the mutant on screen. He also talked a little about having read the script and teases fans with the idea that he’ll be working with some of the new X-Men cast members as well. Check out some choice quotes below:
“I must admit, I was starting to see a life free of steamed chicken breasts,” jokes the actor. “They told me the idea and, at the time, it was Matthew Vaughn [directing]. Instantly, I knew it was a winner. It just felt like everything was coming full circle. However, I must admit my stomach and my mind were like, ‘Oh no.'”
Vaughn dropped out last October, but not before he gave Jackman an idea of the film’s super-secret plot. Jackman says he now has been given the full script (“I’ve read it. It’s really really fantastic.“) and is excited to reunite with his fellow X-Men and Singer. Says Jackman, “I owe, in a way, everything to Bryan. The first film I did in America was X-Men. Wolverine is a character I’ve loved playing and I can’t believe it’s going to be my seventh time playing it. It just blows me away. It not only feels like the right kind of project, it actually is so exciting that we’ll all be back together again. I don’t want to give away too much but I’m really excited not only to reunite with all those great actors but also to work with some of the other ones.“
