    This proves that talent still makes the difference. The audience is tired of losers who think it’s sufficient a song posted on You Tube for be called talented artists. Jackman is one of the best actors of his generation, the only one who can keep up with the great actors of Hollywood’s golden era. Nobody, except him, nowadays is able to do everything, from acting to singing to dancing. Those who confuse real talent for ‘something else’ needs urgently a psychiatrist. Unfortunately, the younger audience doesn’t even know what’s mean artistic versatility.

    I really like Hugh Jackman and he seems like a great guy, BUT he is very overexposed. Every time I see him i just see Hugh now and not the character he is trying to portray.

  • criss

    He deserves all the success in the world !He worked so hard! So proud of him ; )
