Hugh Jackman: Daughter Ava Is A Tough Critic

Hugh Jackman: Daughter Ava Is A Tough Critic

Hugh Jackman flashes a peace sign while getting out of his car on Tuesday (November 22) in New York City.

The 43-year-old Aussie actor recently shared that his 6-year-old daughter, Ava, wasn’t too impressed when she watched her famous dad in Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway.

“About a week ago [my kids] came on a Sunday matinee. I said, ‘Guys, look, you can be honest with me. Do you like the show?’ My son Oscar says, ‘I really like it.’ I was touched. My daughter said, “I find it a little boring.’” Hugh said on Anderson.

Ava also wasn’t a fan when Hugh came into the crowd to serenade his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness.

“My daughter, oh my God. I sing a song for my wife in the show … My daughter literally hides under the seat in front. She dies,” he explained.

    It’s funny…when you’re a kid, that sense of embarrassment is quite common, seeing your father wooing your mom. Imagine if it happens in front of so many people, like in this case. Personally, when I was the age of Ava, I blushed every time my father kissed my mother in front of me and I was a little jealous too, but I noticed instead that in some candid photos, little Ava has a very relaxed attitude and she’s quiet while her parents kissing. Probably, they often have attitudes of mutual tenderness in private situations, so their children don’t pay much attention… scenes of ordinary life.
