Hugh Jackman Covers Vanity Fair Italy

Hugh Jackman Covers Vanity Fair Italy

People‘s Sexiest Man Alive Hugh Jackman puts on his boxing gloves for the latest issue of Vanity Fair Italy.

In his upcoming outback flick, Australia, there are some pretty hot scenes between him and costar Nicole Kidman, also a dear friend of his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness. The mag asks him about it and Hugh responds, “Nicole and I have known each other for a lifetime. We talk honestly with one another. My wife understands that it’s work.” If you can read Italian, check out the full article at

I had the opportunity to see Australia earlier this week and it is magical. Admittedly, it’s not as fun/quirky as director Baz Luhrmann‘s Red Curtain Trilogy (Strictly Ballroom, Romeo & Juliet, Moulin Rouge) and it clocks in at a whopping 2 hours 45 minutes. But for some reason, it didn’t matter! Every scene had a tender moment to dwell on, gorgeous cinematography to stare at or a shirtless Hugh dousing himself with a bucket of water.

    he looks hot, but also kinda different in these photos



  • MR

    He was photoshopped. His forhead is wider than that and his face is more triangular. They made him look like somebody.

    No need to do that. He is beautiful naturally.

    Oh, wow!!!! I don’t care if he’s been photoshopped, he’s still a very good looking man! Now, if only Kidman wasn’t his co-star, I’d go see Australia (considering I’m Australian and all…)!

  • prince charles

    If I go to see Australia I will be sure NOT to sit in front of OOO.
    Otherwise, Mr. Jackman is as talented as he is handsome which I believe we all can agree with that.

    Quick queation… If it was Naomi Watts or anyone else would it be more appealing to you?

    The initial reviews that I am hearing are not too good. I know that I can wait unitl it is released on blu-ray.

    Is there a more promenant Australian actress that you would have preffered over Nicole?

  • OOO

    ohhh so sexyyy!! =] bang me!! but… i love SHIA LABEOUF; JAMES FRANCO; AND… ROBERT PATTINSON! ……… and edward norton… OHH YEAAAA!!! I MASTURBATE TO THEM ALL THE TIME!! =]

    KRISSYKITTY, reviews for australia are EXTREMELY GOOD!!
    If you don’t like Kidman you are in your mind…
    stupid and looser kidman hater


  • Sunny

    These highly staged and photoshopped pix are an attempt to make Hugh look exaggeratedly masculine.

    He’s a good looking guy, but candid photos of him tell a somewhat different story. He’s a song and dance man in reality, and acts like one.

  • MR

    Cate Blanchette is a better actress. Naomi Watts may be better drama actress, but she’s never been in big budget movies. She’s been only in smaller drama roles. You need big names to carry projects like this. Nicole was able to give her time and energy for this. She was well known for her work ethics; will do so as demanded by the directors. I have never expected her to be this physical with horse riding etc. JMO.

    The illusion effect of fame. The ONLY thing that makes this man “something” is: he’s famous. And he was in a movie. The illusion is the image, the image is the illusion. And the anonymity of it all is what keeps it going. This guy is a character in a movie (which is make-believe), he’s a few glam shots, a dream. And most of all, he’s safe – safe because, in fact, you have no idea who he is. He’s safely remote, distant, no threat. You can drool but he can’t hurt you… or even bore you. You know, like a real person.
    The sad thing is, people fall for it. And give up their own dignity.
    If this guy were your next door neighbor, and maybe was letting his St. Bernard crap all over your lawn, and practicing on his drum set at three in the morning, with the windows open, not a single person who has confessed to “drooling” over the empty image presented here would feel anything but utter repulsion at him.
    Grow up, world. Will you? Ever?
