Hugh Jackman Headed To Tempe, Arizona

Hugh Jackman Headed To Tempe, Arizona

Hugh Jackman poses in front of the Eiffel Tower during an X-Men Origins: Wolverine photo call in Paris on Friday (April 17).

The 40-year-old Aussie hunk is headed to Tempe, Ariz., on April 27 to world premiere Wolverine, out May 1. The town won the Wolverine hometown premiere contest.

“These fans have driven the success of the X-Men franchise over the years, and (the contest) has been a chance to say, ‘This is for you,’” Hugh tells USA Today. “People were so excited to get involved, and it was just amazing… I do love meeting the fans, particularly with these movies. I know how passionate they are, and I love to share it with them.”

    I’m so excited that you’re coming to Tempe! We never have big premieres/celebs in AZ.

  • Chili Pepper

    He’s getting cheesier by the minute.

    He is so very Tom Cruisey and so gay. I said it before but the HJ fans didn’t like it. His recent tweet slip up gives us a glimpse into what a fraud he is.

  • @anon2

    @anon2: Em, anon2, why don’t you go and **** yourself?

  • nativenyker

    Wow what a random but lucky town!

    anon2 and the rest of you a**holes: it’s not HUGH that’s a fraud — it’s you anonymous twinks who have no lives and nothing better to do with your time than criticize the nicest guy in show business. There is no one more genuine than Hugh Jackman.

  • janelle

    Some of you are so mean. Who crapped in your cornflakes this morning?I’m so glad Hugh’s coming to Tempe. I live there!

  • Emmie

  • sarah


    i know seriously!!! i go to asu in tempe so im definitely going to this. its exciting because nothing big happens here that much.

  • agossip

    I think his partner John Palermo did the twitter slip-up and Hugh was just trying to cover him up by faulting his LA publicist.

    The fact that some people have the urge to put down the nicest guy in show biz makes me feel sad for the world. Is it not possible to deal with anything or anyone courteous and polite and just accept that there is something positive in life? Is it always necessary to bring up this negativity and try to spoil the good feelings others have about something or someone? Your life must be so miserable that you can’t stand others to be happy, I feel sorry for you.

    Mr. Jackman just visited Berlin on his around-the-world-in-eight-days-tour, and after getting there past midnight and a 10 hour interview marathon the next day he still was nice, friendly and in good humor and signed autographs and he made sure that EVERYONE got one, I think that is impressive and speaks for itself!

    And by the way: Even if he was gay – which I don’t think he is and it’s not my business to discuss it – there is nothing wrong with being gay, but all you guys who bring it up here use it as an insult – shame on you!

    He’s not gay. You need to know your facts before you shoot your mouth off. What is the matter with your manners? No need to put others down to make yourself feel good. You have a problem. This is where you apologize and clean up your act. There is nothing wrong with being a GOOD Person!
