Earlier this evening (February 2nd), Hugh Jackman attended the Directors Guild of America (DGA) Awards, for which Les Misérables director Tom Hooper was nominated. Although he arrived alone, Hugh met up with Ben Affleck and Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow on the red carpet.
During the reception, he chatted with James Bond director Michael Apted, reunited with X-Men co-star Famke Janssen, and was spotted with his Les Mis family (including Anne Hathaway and the aforementioned Hooper). He also helped introduce Tom Hooper to the stage, stating, “We worked with him, so believe us when we say that Tom Hooper is absolutely bat-shit crazy.”
Unfortunately, Hooper lost the DGA Award to Ben Affleck for Argo.
