Hugh Jackman has been honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in honor of his achievements and the release of ‘Les Miserables’ next month.
Talking to E! News with his Les Mis co-stars Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried by his side, he said of the honor, “It’s kind of a surreal day. I’m excited. The star is right here outside where I got to host the Oscars and if the movie gets nominated [for an Oscar], it’ll be nice to get up there and show a little bit of the show to everybody.”
Jackman was also in the news recently for breaking down crying in an interview with Scott Pelley for 60 Minutes when talking about his mother leaving his family when he was younger. In the interview, Jackman said, “I can remember the morning she left, it's weird the things you pick up. I remember her being in a towel around her head and saying goodbye, must have been the way she said goodbye. As I went off to school, when I came back, there was no one there in the house. The next day there was a telegram from England, Mom was there. And then that was it. I don't think she thought for a second it would be forever. I think she thought it was, 'I just need to get away, and I'll come back.' Dad used to pray every night that Mom would come back."
Les Miserables releases on Christmas Day.
