A fun new interview by GQ was recently released, which actually doesn’t touch too much on Hugh’s upcoming movie, Real Steel. He was asked about his fashion sense (who is he wearing?), his karaoke song (The Rolling Stones, unsurprisingly), and what he treats himself to on the days he isn’t confined to the chicken-and-broccoli diet (hint: it’s an Italian dessert). Visit GQ’s website for the whole interview after reading an excerpt below. It has also been added to the press archive.
GQ.com: What was your last stylish purchase?
Hugh Jackman: This morning I had John Lobb come over. I’m so excited as I’ve been waiting two years to get them. For me that’s one of the great indulgences in life – a hand-tailored suit, and a great pair of handmade shoes. There’s no one better than John Lobb. I can’t wait to see them. Now I’ve had my lasts done, they keep them on file forever.
Where do you go for your suits?
Salvatore Ferragamo have done some nice handmade suits for me. Right now on this tour I’m wearing mainly Lanvin. I’ve also got a lot of suits made by this Italian guy from Napoli called Isaia. Not many people know the brand, but I know that George Clooney and Brad Pitt do. It’s almost like I’m not meant to tell anyone. You see, when you’re named “Sexiest Man Alive” you join this club, and the whole world opens up to you. [laughs]
You’ve just announced a new one-man show on Broadway. Are you planning on seeing anything in the West End while you’re here?
I’d love to go and see The Tempest with Ralph Fiennes in it. One of things I’d love to do one day is a Shakespeare with Trevor Nunn. I’ve done musicals with him, but never Shakespeare. There’s no one better.
