Hugh Jackman’s Broadway Show Bores His Daughther

Hugh Jackman who is currently starring in his one man show, ‘Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway’ admits his six-year-old Ava was less than impressed with his show.

“About a week ago [my kids] came on a Sunday matinee. I said, ‘Guys, look, you can be honest with me. Do you like the show?’

“My son Oscar says, ‘I really like it.’ I was touched. My daughter said, ‘I find it a little boring.’ ”

During part of the show, the ‘Real Steel’ actor ventures into the audience to serenade his wife and Hugh admits it is the part where his daughter feels particularly uncomfortable.

“My daughter, oh my God. I sing a song for my wife in the show and sometimes I go out to the crowd.

“My daughter literally hides under the seat in front. She dies.”

Hugh also revealed he is a big fan of parenting show ‘Supernanny’ and has found the tips and techniques used by host Jo Frost very useful.

He said: “I’m one of those parents, I read every book. My son came out and apparently he hadn’t read any of them, so we were really all at sea. Then we found that show and, I tell you, our daughter has a much easier ride.”

“He went up to these girls at the beach in Australia and they’re in their bikinis … and he’s just chatting to these girls, and I’m like, ‘Wow!’ And I’m sort of sort overhearing, and he’s like, ‘Yeah, my dad plays Wolverine.’

“He comes running up and he goes, ‘You’ve gotta sign some autographs – now! Now!’” Hugh recounted.

“My son will not let me sign autographs for anyone. He’s like, ‘Why do they want your autograph? This is my time with you!’ That day, forget it! I was signing autographs, pictures. I felt very strange. I was kind of pimping for my 11-year-old son.”

Hugh Jackman: Fertility Problems Were Painful

hugh jackman and FamilyHugh Jackman admits it was very difficult for him and his wife Debra to accept the fact they couldn’t have children.

The actor and his spouse Debra were both devastated when they were told they had fertility problems and he admits it was hard to have to go through IVF treatment and for Debra to suffer two miscarriages. But he admits the love they have for their adopted children, son Oscar, 11, and daughter Ava, six, has eased the pain they experienced.

“It was painful. We thought we’d have a kid or two biologically and then adopt.

“Obviously, biologically wasn’t the way we were meant to have children. I don’t think of them as adopted – they are our children.”

Hugh admits parenthood is not always easy but he has learnt a lot about himself from his kids.

“With kids you have this wonderful ability to carry on for months without any sleep. And you learn patience. Kids have a way of pushing every button. They find the trigger points – those things that make you frustrated and angry and they use them.”
