Hugh Jackman will go easy on the stunts from now on.
Hugh Jackman says he is cutting back on the amount of movie stunts he performs himself after a nasty accident on the set of his upcoming summer blockbuster The Wolverine.
The Australian actor who earned an Oscar nomination for Les Miserables feared he had broken his neck during a scene in which his character swings out of a train carriage. Though his injuries weren’t severe, it was enough to concern wife Deborra-lee Furness who made him reassess the amount of dangerous work he performs himself.
“In the film, there's a scene where I swing from inside to outside a train and my neck got caught. I thought I had broken it.

At this stage, it's a wonder if Hugh Jackman is more famous than the character of Wolverine or vice versa. But apparently, the actor's wife likes him to play dress-up in order to experience the feeling of an affair.
According to 'X-Men' star, Hugh Jackman, his wife is a big fan of him bringing home his movie costumes and wearing them in the bedroom. The actor, who appeared in 'Les Misérables' in 2012 and will star in 2013's 'The Wolverine', stated that his wife, Deborra-lee Furness, uses his costumes as a way to indulge in fantasy's that she is having a relationship with another man.
In an interview with The Sun, Jackman stated: ''She likes me coming home in costume because it makes her feel like she's having an affair. She's eight years older than me, which is no big issue, and is a fantastic actress who has taught me a lot.'' Despite being one of the most recognisable faces in Hollywood, Jackson reports that his wife ensures he stays grounded in reality and doesn't start getting too big-headed.

Jackman and Furness have since gone on to have two children, 12 year-old Oscar Maximillian and seven year-old Ava Eliot, through adoption. However, on Katie Couric’s show Katie Jackman revealed that the pair had suffered an awful lot of heartache in their attempts to have a child naturally. “It is a difficult time. The miscarriage thing — apparently it happens to one in three pregnancies — but it’s very, very rarely talked about,” the actor said. “It’s almost secretive. But it’s a good thing to talk about. It’s more common and it’s tough, there’s a grieving process you have to go through,” he added.
The couple always wanted to adopt, said Jackman, and it was never a last resort. “To be clear, Deb and I always wanted to adopt,” he explained. “We didn’t know where in the process that would happen, but biologically, obviously, we tried and it was not happening for us.” Heartwarmingly then the pair have been made up with the kids they have had. “The moment Oscar was born all the heartache melted away. You can’t prepare for that moment, nothing can prepare you,” he gushed. “You can’t even explain how incredible it is and that avalanche of emotion that comes. How it opens up your heart, how it frustrates you, how it angers you and … all of a sudden how alive you are.”
The all-star cast for 'Les Miserables' arrive on the red carpet at the New York premiere. Among them were Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman with his actress wife Deborra-lee Furness, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Sacha Baron Cohen, George Blagden, Samantha Barks and newcomers Isabelle Allen and Daniel Huttlestone.
The Guardians of Ga'Hoole are sworn to protect the innocent from trouble and vanquish evil. Soren is a young owl who's grown up listening to his father tell the stories of The Gaurdians. His dream is to one day join his heroes and be a part of that noble life he's learnt so much about.
Intelligently adapted by screenwriter Beatrix Christian from Raymond Carver's short story "So Much Water So Close to Home," Jindabyne is about the things people do to remember that they're alive, and the things they want to forget that make them feel dead. Set in the titular small village (a sign on the road identifies it as "a tidy town") Laura Linney and Gabriel Byrne play Claire and Stewart Kane, a couple with troubles surrounded by friends and coworkers with plenty of their own. Everyone works the small-time kind of jobs you can find in a town the size of Jindabyne, Claire clerking at a drugstore and Stewart (a former auto racing star) running a gas station. There's darkness in the Kanes' past, like the year and a half when Claire lived elsewhere after the birth of their son Tom (played with heartbreaking sincerity by Sean Rees-Wemyss), never explained. A couple they're friends with has troubles, too: a dead daughter and now the unexpected stewardship of their goddaughter, Caylin-Calandria (Eva Lazzaro), a haunted and troublemaking 10-year-old who seems to have a death wish.
