Yesterday, Hugh Jackman took some time out of his day to answer fan questions regarding his upcoming film, The Wolverine. The interview was conducted via Twitter, in which fans were encouraged to submit questions, which would then be answered by Hugh in a live stream. There are eleven videos total – all of them pretty short – which you can view below.
Finally, we’re getting our first look at Hugh Jackman’s upcoming film, Prisoners. Entertainment Tonight was on the set to provide an exclusive behind the scenes sneak peek. Hugh talks about the project throughout, tackling the subject of missing family members and how he can relate to that fear. Co-star Jake Gyllenhaal also sat down to discuss the film, and he unsurprisingly comments on how kind Hugh is while maintaining professionalism. Seems like his Nicest Guy in Hollywood title is staying put.
Although short, here’s a very funny “interview” featuring Hugh Jackman and MTV News’ Josh Horowitz. From previous videos, fans know that these two have a great rapport, and it shines here as well. In it, Josh asks Hugh to read three separate cards with his best Wolverine impression — but the challenge is harder than it seems, as Hugh has to request things such as red velvet cupcakes. I wish there was more!
Although filmed the day after the Academy Awards, Hugh Jackman recently appeared on Marie Osmond’s talk show, “Marie.” In the three-part interview aired over March 4th, 5th, & 6th, he touched deep upon some traditional topics like his marriage and fatherhood. Marie’s interview style is less about inspiring laughter and more about tapping into Hugh’s psyche (for example, he goes on about fear instilled in him inspiring him to push onwards). He also answers the question, “What is your philosophy on life?” I’m unable to embed the videos, so just click on the still images below to visit her site.
This evening (February 24th), Hugh Jackman attended the 85th annual Academy Awards, where he was nominated for his first Oscar. Unfortunately, he didn’t win (although who could compete with Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln?), but there are plenty of pictures of him looking gorgeous throughout the evening. There are a couple of red carpet interviews which you can watch below:
Hugh and the Les Misérables cast – including Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sacha Baron Cohen – all joined together onstage to sing as a group for the first time. As part of a musical medley (celebrating Chicago, Dreamgirls, and Les Mis), the cast performed a truncated version of “One Day More.” Hugh opened up the set by singing a little of “Suddenly,” the original song written for the film. Check it out:
Hugh Jackman was on a new episode of James Lipton’s series, “Inside the Actors Studio,” where he interviews guests about their careers and the craft of acting. Because Hugh has been on the show before, he and Lipton continued where they left off, discussing The Prestige, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway, and extensively exploring all things Les Misérables. There were some great stories strewn throughout, and the Bernard Pivot questionnaire at the end featured very different answers than last time.
Although there’s no video of the episode online (yet), check out some extra footage from Bravo’s website below. There are also previews from the episode here, in case you missed them.
TIME has recruited fashion photographer Paola Kudacki to highlight this year’s great performers, taking a handful of 2013 Oscar nominees and allowing them to recreate themselves through a series of black and white photographs. The results are stunning. Hugh Jackman and Les Misérables co-star Anne Hathaway were paired up for their portrait, featuring the two modernizing their characters from the film, Valjean and Fantine. There’s also a great video of them discussing their roles (including preliminary research) and what they think of their fellow actor nominees, along with a group video.
On Monday (February 4th), Hugh Jackman appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” once again. Although he was just on the program back in December, Hugh met up with his talk show buddy to talk some more about Les Misérables. Much of the interview have your typical Hugh stories, though he does briefly touch on his Super Bowl experience this year — including what team(s) he was rooting for.
Zero Dark Thirty‘s Jessica Chastain was the second guest of the evening, and it’s worth sticking around for her interview; she and Hugh recall their earlier meetup at the Oscars luncheon and share a cute story about bunny ears. Many pictures have also been added to the gallery.

With many thanks to Jody, HJF now has scans from a Les Misérables feature article in Celebs. The issue was published in January and contains interviews with Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway along with details on some other cast members. It’s worth checking out if you want some more background information on the production of Les Mis.
Nearly one month ago while in London, Hugh Jackman taped an appearance for “The Graham Norton Show” — a special to be aired on New Year’s Eve on BBC. The episode is now available online in its entirety; however, as the beginning focuses solely on Tom Cruise and Rosamund Pike, you may want to skip to about 18 minutes in. The interview – in typical Graham Norton fashion – is absolutely hilarious, as Hugh is joined with Billy Crystal and comedian John Bishop. It may be considered NSFW at certain points, as it does get a little naughty. You can also see pictures from the event in the gallery.
