There’s a short and sweet interview by Parade that was posted earlier this month but was somehow missed in the influx of Real Steel press. Hugh Jackman very briefly touches upon his training with Sugar Ray in this interview, but mostly he talks about family life: the element of surprise being beneficial to romance and how he plans on keeping potential suitors away from his daughter once she starts dating. Check out an excerpt below, then visit the source for the whole thing. It’s also been added to the press archive.

When Ava starts dating, how will you treat her suitors?
That’s when playing a role like Wolverine comes in handy. They’ll come by and I’ll casually have the claws in my hand. That would be more effective than a baseball bat!

You’ve been training for the next Wolverine film. Do you have a favorite last splurge the night before dieting?
Here’s what happens: I start with breakfast cereal in the afternoon, because that’s one of my favorite things. And then I have lasagna and ice cream for dinner.

Where do you call home these days?
My real home is Australia, but we currently live in New York. I love being on Broadway [he’s doing a one-man show from Oct. 25 through Jan. 1], but the real reason is that Deb loves the city. Happy wife, happy life.

Hugh Jackman – along with other celebrities like Stephen King, Gene Hackman, Gillian Anderson, Alan Cumming, and Kathleen Turner – have recently been involved with project called Dear Me, in which they write letters to their 16-year-old selves. A book entitled Dear Me: More Letters to My Sixteen Year Old Self will contain the letters of many other stars giving advice to themselves. The book will be released on October 27th, but you can pre-order it at The Guardian’s bookstore. Hugh’s letter can be read in the graphic above, and a transcript has been provided below:

Dear Hugh,

Just thought I would pop you a little note to see how you are (even though I know) and to tell you that yes!!! There will come a time when you get over Penny dumping you at the bus stop. In fact you will see her in a couple of yrs and wonder why you cried every time you heard the Lionel Richie song “Penny Lover”.

Oh and the patch of zits you get on your forehead will also go, but probably not as quickly as you hope. And Yes, you will get to move into the big room in the house as soon as your brother Ralph leaves.

Right now the important stuff is out of the way…..I will tell you a few things that may help you on the way. I don’t want to spoil any surprises for you, so some of this may sound a little vague.

Things are going to be different from how you imagine them. I know you don’t have a clear idea of what you are going to do with your life, and I know that drives you a little crazy… particularly as you get asked about it every other day of your life. But when you are asked just smile and say “no idea…but when I do know I’ll get back to you”.

Truth be told much of what is gig to happen will surprise the pants off you… it will be way better than your wildest imaginings.

There’s a great new – albeit short – interview by New York Magazine on the launch of Laughing Man Coffee. Hugh Jackman is asked about his inspiration behind this new charity. He also talks about his current favorite restaurants and jokes about who he wants his son, Oscar, to marry in the future. (Hint: the wedding would no doubt be filled with wonderful food.) Check out an excerpt below, then head to the source for more. It’s also been added to the press archive.

Was it [Jean-Georges] who inspired Laughing Man?
Paul Newman did, actually. Eight years ago, I read the book written by his partner, and at that point, I thought, some day, I’d like to start that sort of business that gives back and has longevity. In every way, I look up to Paul Newman. From acting, to the way he handled himself; he’s just authentic. We want to make money and create jobs, but the profits after that, entirely going to charity.

X-Men star Jackman was also asked what reception the Queen will get when she flies to Canberra.

He replied: “They love her there, the only issue I know is she cannot make every city.

“Even the republicans, the ones in Australia who want to see Australia move on, still have great respect and love for the Queen. I’ve never heard anyone say different.”

When asked what it was like to be at the palace, he joked: “As an Aussie it feels weird, I’m just waiting to get thrown out.”

In the palace’s opulent white drawing room the Australian celebrities gathered to be introduced to the Queen, Duke and Earl of Wessex, with the monarch showing no signs of her illness.

In the line-up alongside Macpherson and Jackman were actor and singer Jason Donovan, and Revel Horwood, but veteran entertainer Rolf Harris was missing – due to illness believed to be a cold.

The royal couple chatted to the Australian stars for a few minutes and shared a joke with the group before they greeted all their guests, who numbered almost 350, in turn.

Jackman said after meeting the Queen: “She was talking about the flight (to Australia), about travelling. I wanted to ask her if she was stopping off but didn’t think I was meant to ask questions.

“I did say ‘have a great trip to Australia’ and she said ‘thank you, I’m excited about it’.”

He joked about Macpherson, whose bikini-clad form appeared many times in American magazine Sports Illustrated, saying: “It’s always good to stand next to Elle.”
