Personal Quote:

[on Les Misérables (2012)] Victor Hugo's novel is the greatest handbook any actor ever had for a job. But Annie [Anne Hathaway] brought research to it that went even further than Hugo - about what it meant to be a woman in that time period, what it meant to be a prisoner. See more »

Trivia:

He is terribly near-sighted and has extremely blurry vision when he isn't wearing contacts. Even when hosting the Tonys and Saturday Night Live (1975), Jackman memorized almost everything he had to say so he wouldn't have to struggle to read. See more »

Trademark:

Renown for his fluent American accent See more »
