It was posted as a rumor just the other day, but it turned out to be true: Hugh did, in fact, attend the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic today, June 5th. Not only that, but he was the Master of Ceremonies! Photos of the event have been added to the Gallery, where Hugh can be seen pictured with the likes of fellow Aussies, Isla Fisher and Naomi Watts.
AM New York is reporting that there might be a Hugh Jackman sighting this weekend, at the Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic. Whether or not this is true is yet to be seen, but those attending might want to keep an eye open — just in case!
Veuve Cliquot Polo Classic: Put on your finest duds and head out for a free day of polo. And keep your eyes peeled for celebs: Hugh Jackman and Padma Lakshmi are among those expected to attend. (Sunday, 2:30 p.m., FREE, Governors Island, vcseason.com/polo)
Continuing the articles/interviews from last night’s “Kimchi Chronicles” launch party, here’s another one in which Hugh Jackman talks about the differing eating habits between his kids, Oscar and Ava:
Hugh Jackman’s son Oscar, 11, will eat just about anything.
“He’s very adventurous,” the actor, 42, tells me during the Kimchi Chronicles premiere party held Tuesday at NYC’s Spice Market. “More adventurous than me. He’ll eat spicy food, you name it. He’ll eat everything. Korean barbecue – he really likes that.”
Hm, how did he get so lucky?
“He was born that way,” Hugh says, holding an empty glass filled with ice, lemon and black straw.
Still, it didn’t transfer over to his little sister Ava, 5.
“My daughter – we call her the white foods girl. Pasta, mashed potatoes, hot dogs, pizza. She likes it down the line.”
Hugh Jackman attended the “Kimchi Chronicles” launch party at the Spice House in New York last night, June 1st. “Kimchi Chronicles” is a new show that will be broadcast on PBS and showcase a variety of Korean dishes, courtesy of chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten. Check out a new interview from the evening below, in which Hugh (and his wife, Deb) talks about his love for food even before it was trendy to be a “foodie.”
Have you noticed how many celebrities are now foodies?
Deb Jackman: Hugh Jackman: I don’t know if it’s cool or not, or trendy or whatever, but I’ve always been a foodie. I remember when I was young, the only thing I ever dreamed of — it wasn’t cars or houses or trips — the only thing I wanted money for was to be able to walk into any restaurant I wanted and order anything off the menu, without having to worry about it. Careful what you wish for, I guess!
Where do you exercise that dream now?
Hugh: Honestly, JG’s restaurants are my favorites.
Deb: I agree. I’ll take ABC Kitchen for lunch and here [Spice Market] for dinner.
Hugh: We just took my dad and brother to the French Laundry in Napa. Do you know that one? Oh my God.
Even more film stills have been added to the Gallery, including those for the following movies: Australia, Deception, Kate & Leopold, Scoop, Someone Like You, Swordfish, The Fountain, The Prestige, and Van Helsing.
