Hugh Leaves his London Hotel in Suit

Hugh Jackman’s been busy promoting Real Steel, which means lots of press is coming out. Unfortunately, not much seems beefy enough to store in the Archive, but there are some interesting tidbits being released in small articles. Like, did you know he’s interested in guest starring in “Glee”? And that he’s been involved in many fistfights? Check out excerpts below and follow the source links for more information:

“I would quite like to appear in ‘Glee,'” he told BANG Showbiz. “I’ve seen one episode so yeah, maybe.”

The actor added that he prefers playing tougher roles, such as Wolverine in the X-Men series and the title character in Van Helsing.

“I enjoy playing tough guys in movies because I’m really pretty boring in real life,” he said. “I just get to be much more interesting on screen.”


Hugh Jackman admits he has been involved in fistfights.

He told the Daily Star, “I have been in plenty of fights, and I’m definitely not always the winner. The last time I was in the U.K. I got in an argument with a guy in a pub about the rugby or something and the next thing I was flat out on my face.

“Luckily, as an actor most people don’t want to punch you in the face.”


Hugh has teased that he’ll stick to a particular bodybuilding method while still enjoying a tipple.

“It doesn’t. It sucks,” he replied when asked how his gym routine will fit in with his vacation.

“It absolutely does not work. But there’s a bodybuilding theory that you can drink before noon and still stay in shape. It’s given me the idea for a plan. I’m going to wake up at six and start drinking rosé – then I’ll train in the afternoon!”


Hugh’s been hopping from place to place to promote Real Steel in London, including a stop at BBC Radio 1’s program with Fearne Cotton. Fearne’s replacement – Sara Cox – interviewed Hugh for about 16 minutes, which you can listen to at the BBC site (at around 20 minutes). Keep in mind: it’ll only be up for five more days, so listen soon! It’s a really great interview, both informative and humorous. Did you know that Hugh has a British passport…?
