Hugh Jackman Pictures
Right now he’s flat chat spruiking X-Men: The Last Stand with co-star Halle Berry, but Hugh Jackman will swap his superhero powers for good son badge when he journeys back to Oz for his dad’s 70th birthday next month. Jackman, the youngest of five children who were all raised solely by dad Chris, will put Hollywood on hold when he heads back to his hometown for the auspicious rele-bash. Despite the fact the occasion clashes with the June 11 Tony Awards – the Broadway gala Jackman was rumoured to be hosting – the Aussie actor reckons no red carpet do would prevent him from being with his pa. "I couldn’t do it anyway – it’s Dad’s 70th birthday and we’re going to Australia to be with him," Jackman said. At the Mexico City premiere of X-Men 3 this week, Jackman and Berry said they hoped the flick would inspire Latin American audiences to value their heritage.
