Hugh Jackman and Some Lifeguards Rescued The Jackman Kids From A Perilous Rip

50691286 07-31-11 Saint Tropez, France Actor Hugh Jackman, his wife Deborra-Lee Furness and their kids Oscar and Ava enjoying a day at the beach in Saint Tropez,

Okay, these are not from this event, but do depict superdad Hugh Jackman pulling his kids, Ava and Oscar, from the shores of St. Tropez. So I had these gems in my mind when I heard about this weekend’s bizarre scare…

 The actor’s 10-year-old daughter Ava and 15-year-old son Oscar became caught in a rip at Bondi beach in Australia on Sunday- and with the help of a couple beach dudes and a lifeguard, the two children were pulled to safety before things could have gotten super dangerous. Swimmer Peter Adam recounts the incident, via 9 News Australia:

“His daughter was struggling to get on to the sand bar so I reached down, grabbed her arm and put my arm up to Hugh to make a chain to pull us up on the sand bar,” he said.

“That’s what you do with any family out there.”

Dan Conn said he helped drag the children to the sand bar, but Oscar was again carried out by the current.

“I think he was under a bit of pressure with the two kids at once but he was pretty cool, calm and collected, as Hugh always is I suppose,” he said.

Mr Conn said Jackman was “definitely a bit of a superdad, superhero, and he’s a super bloke too.”

Lifeguards and lifesavers then assisted, bringing the teenager to safety.

Bondi lifeguard Trent Falson said Jackman thanked him multiple times.

“He said you guys did an amazing job, I think he thanked me about three times on the way up the sand,” he said.

The beach was closed for the rest of the day, and I assume Jackman and his kids probably went back to the card and Hugh had a good cry, maybe got some ice cream after. SO SCARY!

Hugh Jackman wants Tom Hardy to take over as Wolverine

Hugh Jackman wants Tom Hardy to take over as Wolverine

Hugh Jackman wants to pass the Wolverine role onto Tom Hardy. Jackman has played the role for fifteen years and while he never thought about getting replaced, he thinks Hardy would be a great fit.

“I haven’t really given it a lot of thought,” Jackman tells MTV of his replacement. “I’ve been asked that question a lot, and I’m always like, ‘I don’t wanna make it too easy on the studio to replace me,’ you know? I’ve still got one more to do. I’m sure they’re already talking about it, and there’s some actor [they’ve told] ‘shh, keep it quiet but we want you next.'”

While Jackman is keeping the studios next choice on the down low, he didn’t mind sharing his personal pick to don the adamantium.

“He’s younger than me for sure,” Jackman says. “I think Tom Hardy would be a great Wolverine.”

What do you think of Tom Hardy as Wolverine if he was approached to take on the role? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.

Pics: Hugh Jackman Promotes His New Movie, Chappie

'Chappie' Paris Photocall

Hugh Jackman has a new movie, Chappie, coming out next Friday and he’s currently all over the world to promote its release.  He was in Paris (pic above) with Sigourney Weaver to attend the premiere there and then jetted over to Germany today for more press (pic below).

The movie’s summary:  In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanized police force. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself.

After taking a peek at Hugh’s upcoming projects, two things stand out: 1. He’s going to need a lot of naps.  2.  Will his family remember what he looks like?  Seriously, Hugh has a ton of new movies in pre-production!  Braodway 4D is finished and due out this year, but the rest are set to begin shooting one after the other.  Pan,
Eddie the Eagle, X-Men: Apocalypse, The Greatest Showman on Earth, and Untitled Wolverine Sequel are all due out between now and 2017!

Are you planning to see Chappie next weekend?

Hugh Jackman Injured on the Job?!

The 68th Annual Tony Awards

While hot, hot Hugh Jackman was onstage in an NYC production of The River…Wolverine did something that rendered him a little BLOODY!

While performing, the actor’s stage business was to slice a lemon. Instead, Hugh decided to take his role in a different direction, by sliced his finger instead!  Like a pro might, he continued on as if nothing happened even though he was bleeding all over the place.

According to The New York Times, this isn’t the first time the actor mis-cut. During rehearsals he cut his hand so bad he needed five stitches!

His rep spoke out on the incident, saying:

‘I said to him last night ‘Let’s try to get through The River run with at least 7.5 fingers intact!’

Hugh Jackman: A couple cuts above the rest.
