The Hollywood Reporter has a brand new issue out — and Hugh Jackman is on the cover! The feature article inside is lengthy and incredibly informative, revealing some previously unhidden aspects of Hugh’s personal and professional life. He talks of his childhood, Hollywood friendships, goes into detail on his religious and spiritual views, and discusses the role of Jean Valjean. (He confirms there’s no immediate plans following X-Men: Days of Future Past, so it sounds like he’ll be spending time with family.) There’s also a great photo shoot and related video attached, so be sure to check them out.

Sitting at the Peninsula hotel in Beverly Hills, [Hugh] Jackman reveals himself to be a far more complex and far-ranging figure than many of his peers realize. As he gobbles down a breakfast of oatmeal, wheat toast and a five-egg omelet – muscling up for his next movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, in which he returns as Wolverine for the sixth time – he adds to this impression by discussing a turbulent past that still lingers with him.

Open and immensely likable, he describes being 8 years old when his mother, Grace, abandoned him and his four elder siblings, leaving them in Sydney with their father, Christopher. His mother’s departure never was fully explained to him, and indeed Jackman only realized it was permanent when he was 13 and his father’s attempt at a reconciliation failed.
