Hugh Jackman & Russell Crowe: 'Les Miserables' Australian Premiere!

Hugh Jackman & Russell Crowe: 'Les Miserables' Australian Premiere!

Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe suit up as they attend the premiere of their new film Les Miserables on Friday (December 21) in Sydney, Australia.

Hugh, 44, recently talked about the intense training he had to go through to play Jean Valjean.

“Definitely as hard as any Wolverine movie I’ve done,” Hugh admitted. “Getting skinny is one thing, but he (Jean) has to maintain his strength. I was in the gym for about three hours a day. For the first day of shooting I learned a little trick from my trainer there of not drinking any water. In a way, it sinks your cheeks and your eyes, because it was important for the story that he be unrecognizable. So, that was the goal. We went for it.”

FYI: Hugh is wearing a Dolce&Gabbana tuxedo.

    Where is Anne and Amanda? I don’t know why in America they’va attended the premieres, and in Australia they haven’t.

    Russell Crowe looks like HELL. I have seen him look like death warmed over before, but never like this. Could be the effects of divorce and heavy drinking?

    He was so beautiful in “L.A. Confidentlal.” It’s too bad he’s not taking care of himself.

    I can’t help but I really don’t care for that movie. I don’t get the hype and find it disgusting that the actors really hype that thing in a bad way (Anne Hathway’s no-panties-dress, hugh Jackman’s misscariage confession).

    If you follow his tweets you will know that he is not drinking much these days and works out furiously. He looked just fine in the shortsleeved shirt and shorts when he arrived home. He has had to shave his head for a film role.
    And you DO realise LA Confidential was filmed more than 16 years ago ? And that Crowe just stepped off a plane from New York ? Have you never been jetlagged ?
    Wow – people are so good at criticising when they don’t know the reality…

    @Liz: I repeat: many male actors older than he look much, much, better. He looks terrible. Wouldn’t be surprised if he has a heart attack one of these days.

    He also looks depressed, which is too bad. But it’s not fun getting divorced.

    The haircut does him no favours at all. But it’s easy to look up pics of him and Jackman together back at the BAFTA’s last February to know he looked fantastic then. He’s come off three movies back to back to back and hard filming away from home in cold weather, flown in at 24 hours’ notice, is being followed by paps the second he hits the ground , and you are willing to concede he looks ‘depressed” , which is magnanimous ! Follow his tweet history and you will see he bikes and walks EVERYWHERE, works out ferociously and is far fitter than most actors.
    Give him a few weeks in the sunshine and the bush with his sons and he’ll be bright as a daisy.

    Russel’s just been spending too much time in the pub. aussie beer + pub food = Russel Crowe. On the other hand, Hugh Jackman embodies what Aussie men can look like when they resist that pub lifestyle! No more fish and chips and pies (that’s savoury meat pies for Americans who have the word ‘pie’ confused with dessert) for you, Russel!

    Thought Russell Crowe went home to spend time with his family. Guess the priority was the movie premier. Russell looks like a 66 year old man; he looks 20 years older than Keith Urban. He needs to grow some hair and slim down and change his lifestyle.

    “Not drinking any water”? Have fun shitting kidney stones forever.
