In the busy world of Hollywood, it is quite common for actors to be unaware of their crew members. However, Hugh Jackman made an exception for this after getting a wake-up call from his friends. Jackman revealed that back in 2013 his Australian friends shamed him for not knowing the name of his crew member.
Hugh Jackman’s Friend Shamed His for On-set Habit
The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman has opened up about the wake-up call from his friend which helped him to come out as a better individual. Apart from his acting, if there is anything that Jackman is known for is his manners and kind behavior. While the industry knows Jackman to be the nicest guy, the actor has recalled his journey to becoming one.
Jackman agreed that there was a time in his career when he was not aware of his crew or co-stars. However, after a wake-up call from his Australian friends back in 2013, Jackman changed this habit of his. Talking about this with Stuff in an interview Jackman said, “My mate said ‘You don’t know what that guy’s name is, do you? ‘I said ‘No’. He said, ‘How long have you been on this movie?’ I said, ‘Two months’. He goes, ‘Mate, that’s shameful. You have been here for two months and you don’t know the guy’s name?'”
Even though Jackman was quick to defend himself by saying this is how it is done in America, he realized he was not obliged to follow it. Ever since then, Jackman had tried to build a good rapport with his crew members and made a habit of remembering each of their names.
Even Hugh Jackman Wants to Beat People Up
Despite being called one of the nicest people in the industry, Hugh Jackman agrees that even he wants to beat people up sometimes. While it might come as a shock to many Jackman has a few people in mind who he wishes to beat up.
Talking about this with The Guardian, Jackman said that even though he loses his cool sometimes and wants to beat people up, he is not very proud of it. Also talking about his relationship with Paparazzi in an interview with Time, Jackman said “With paparazzi, I’m constantly trying to see my kids’ view of the situation — that if I start flipping the bird or throwing punches, how frightening it would be for them. So, I’m constantly sitting on it. But am I angry? Yeah. Would I like to handle it differently? Yes.”
While fans doubt Jackman will ever lose his cool, they completely understand how annoying the paparazzi can be.
