Hugh Jackman Biography

Hugh Jackman became a favorite go-to guy for Hollywood and Broadway in the 2000s. He first starred in the 1995 Australian television drama Corelli and then got critical raves for his turn as the bitter brother Wace in Erskineville Kings (1999). Then he was cast as the grouchy, blade-fingered hero Wolverine in the big-budget movie X-Men (2000, also starring Ian McKellen). A stand-out in an ensemble cast, he got the hot-new-star treatment from the celebrity press and earned an international fan following. In 2003 he moved to Broadway in a big way, playing singer/songwriter Peter Allen in the play The Boy From Oz and winning the 2004 Tony Award as best actor in a musical. He has since appeared in Kate and Leopold (2001, with Meg Ryan), the X-Men sequels X2 (2003), The Last Stand (2006), X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009), and X-Men: First Class (2011, a cameo). In 2006 he appeared in the Woody Allen film Scoop (2006, with Scarlett Johansson) and The Fountain (with Rachel Weisz), and did voice work for the animated comedy Flushed Away. His starring role in the big-budget flop Australia (2008, with Nicole Kidman) didn't seem to hurt his appeal; in 2009 he hosted the Academy Awards broadcast. His other films include Real Steel (2011) and Les Misrables (2012, with Anne Hathaway)

Early life
Jackman was born in Sydney, New South Wales, the son of Grace McNeil (ne Greenwood) and Christopher John Jackman, a Cambridge-trained accountant.His parents were English and had come to Australia in 1967 as part of the "Ten Pound Poms" immigration.One of Jackman's paternal great-grandfathers was Greek.His parents were devout Christians, having been converted by Evangelist Billy Graham after their marriage.Jackman has four older siblings, and was the second of his parents' children to be born in Australia.He also has a younger half-sister, from his mother's re-marriage.His parents divorced when he was eight, and Jackman remained in Australia with his father and Jackman's two brothers, while his mother moved back to England with Jackman's two sisters.As a child, Jackman liked the outdoors, spending a lot of time at the beach and on camping trips and vacations all over Australia. He wanted to see the world: "I used to spend nights looking at atlases. I decided I wanted to be a chef on a plane. Because I'd been on a plane and there was food on board, I presumed there was a chef. I thought that would be an ideal job.

Career
Early work
On the night of his final Academy graduation performance, Jackman received a phone call offering him a role on Correlli: "I was technically unemployed for thirteen seconds." Correlli, devised by Australian actress Denise Roberts, was a 10-part drama series on ABC, Jackman's first major professional job, and where he met his future wife Deborra-Lee Furness: "Meeting my wife was the greatest thing to come out of it."The show lasted only one season.

After Correlli Jackman went on the stage in Melbourne. In 1996, Jackman played Gaston in the local Walt Disney production of Beauty and the Beast, and Joe Gillis in Sunset Boulevard.[5] During his stage musical career in Melbourne, he starred in the 1998 Midsumma festival cabaret production Summa Cabaret. He also hosted Melbourne's Carols by Candlelight and Sydney's Carols in the Domain.

Jackman's early film work includes Erskineville Kings and Paperback Hero (1999), and his television work includes Law of the Land, Halifax f.p., Blue Heelers, and Banjo Paterson's The Man from Snowy River.

Personal life
Jackman married Deborra-Lee Furness on 11 April 1996 at St. John's in Toorak, Victoria, a suburb of Melbourne.They met on the set of Australian TV show Correlli.Jackman personally designed an engagement ring for Furness, and their wedding rings bore the Sanskrit inscription "Om paramar mainamar", translated as "we dedicate our union to a greater source".Furness had two miscarriages,following which she and Jackman adopted two children, Oscar Maximillian and Ava Eliot.

In November 2013, Jackman announced he had basal-cell carcinoma removed from his nose.He had a second carcinoma removed from his nose in May 2014, telling Associated Press that he expects to have future recurrences.This resulted in Jackman attending the various worldwide premieres of X-Men: Days of Future Past with a bandage on his nose, and urging his followers on photo-sharing platform Instagram to "wear sunscreen"

It was inevitable, of course, but that doesn’t make it any easier to accept when the tragedy finally arrives. But it’s arrival is apparently imminent, with confirmation coming straight from the horse’s mouth. Or rather, from the wolverine’s mouth.
