General News Comments Off on Dear Me: Celebrity Letters to their Younger Selves

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.

Charities, General News, Interviews, Press Comments Off on Grub Street Talks to Hugh about Laughing Man Coffee

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.

Gallery, General News, Public Appearances Comments Off on Hugh Jackman Visits Buckingham Palace

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.”

Charities, Gallery, General News, Public Appearances Comments Off on Laughing Man Coffee is Launched in NYC!

Hugh Jackman wasn’t planning to do much to celebrate his 43 birthday on Wednesday. After the morning launch event for his new charity-supporting coffee company, Laughing Man Coffee & Tea, at ABC Kitchen in New York, he would be stuck on a plane to London — but instead he got a birthday surprise!

While it was early for a frosting-covered cake, Hugh was all smiles when his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, friends and business partners surprised him by singing happy birthday and giving him a candle-covered cake.

It was the second birthday cake in less than 24 hours for Hugh. His wife Deborra-Lee told OK! that she and Hugh celebrated the night before with their two kids Oscar and Ava.

“It was our dream night!” she told OK!. “We stayed at home with the kids and had birthday cake.”

The Reel Steel actor looked fit and trim at the event – despite having indulged in two slices of Magnolia Bakery’s banana cake.

“I love it — it’s my favorite cake!” Hugh told OK!.
