Hugh Jackman Almost Played Bond, And Other Things You Might Not Know About The ‘X-Men’ Star


In the past 15 years, we’ve seen Hugh Jackman work with robots in Real Steel and fight vampires in Van Helsing, play an obsessed magician in The Prestige and a Frenchman with the voice of a really sad angel in Les Miserables. But, let’s be honest, we all know him best as Wolverine. However, unlike the regenerative mutant with bones made of adamantium, Jackman ages at a normal pace.

To celebrate, we’re giving you a list of facts that you probably didn’t know about the actor. You know, unless you’re one of those people who eats, sleeps and breathes all things Jackman (Jackmaniacs?). This list will hopefully go past common knowledge, such as the fact that he’s actually Australian – if you didn’t know that, I don’t know that we can be friends.

The Class That Changed Everything

Hugh Jackman actually studied communications with an emphasis in journalism before he seriously considered being an actor. But one drama theory class in his senior year of college changed everything. Think about it, what would Hugh Jackman have been like as an editor for an entertainment website, television host or, maybe, even a PR guy? The world will probably never know. Unless he plays one in a movie or something.
