Hugh Jackman: I Wanted To Be A Minister

Hugh Jackman gives the thumbs-up to his fans as he steps out in a classy Isaia suit after leaving the Good Morning America studios on Tuesday morning in New York City.

The 40-year-old Aussie actor finished off his look with a fur felt hat and a pair of black lace-ups (both by Ferragamo).

Hugh also appeared on the show today and talked about what he really wanted to be when he grew up. He said, “My father is very religious so I was brought up in the church. He was converted at a Billy Graham rally (crusade) and he used to take me to these rallies. And I do very vividly remember that about age 13 watching somebody on stage doing a talk and thinking, ‘I have a very clear feeling that one day I was going to be up on that stage.’ And for about a year, I thought I was maybe going to be a minister. And then as I got older, I thought, ‘I think I just want to be up on that stage. Maybe not in that capacity but in some other capacity.”

    Hugh’s cute and sweet, but I don’t think this look suits him. It’s too “Hollywood.” And he doesn’t look good in a hat anyway.
    He said that himself.

  • Deirdre

    Hugh outshines Brad Pitt anyday! Hugh’s committment to his wife actually makes him FAR MORE ATTRACTIVE than Brad’s adulterous ways. Besides, Hugh can act.
