With last year's melancholy Logan, Hugh Jackman hung up his Adamantium claws, shaved off his mutton chops and called it a day for Wolverine. And while one should never say never when it comes to a potential return to the character, it sounds like Jackman is ready to let those days recess into the background as he focuses on new projects-- like this weekend's political drama, The Front Runner. But there's one person in particular who isn't ready for Hugh Jackman to call it quits on his long tenure as Wolverine. And no, it's not Ryan Reynolds. It's Hugh Jackman's son, Oscar Maximilian Jackman.
Once he was on the beach. He was talking to a girl, he was about 13, he was talking to a girl, who I guess to be about 15, and he started walking towards me. He came up to me and he started walking ahead of the girl, and he goes, 'Dad, Dad, Dad, she's coming over. I told her you're Wolverine, just go with it.' I was like, 'I am the wingman for my 13-year-old boy.'
As Hugh Jackman recounted to ET at the Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday, his 18-year-old son Oscar Maximilian Jackman isn't the least bit embarrassed by his dad and his worldwide fame. In fact, the young man uses his father's well-known portrayal of Wolverine for his own personal benefit, particularly when it comes to picking up ladies. Oscar has been doing it since he was 13, according to Hugh Jackman, and the actor is apparently a good wingman when it comes to helping his son get attention with the ladies. Consider that yet another perk of being Hugh Jackman.
Everyone needs a wing-person or two, and Oscar Maximilian Jackman is lucky enough to have a father that attracts more-than-a-little bit of attention. As for Hugh Jackman, he hasn't used his fame to bring in any ladies. He's been happily married to his wife, Deborra Lee Furness since 1996 -- before he dawned the claws and became the famous X-Men character. And it doesn't sound like Hugh Jackman would know the first thing about attracting attention to himself when it comes to the ladies. At least, that's what Hugh Jackman claims by his own admission. He doesn't think he has any "game."
It's been 25 years, I wouldn't even know how to pretend to have game. It's been way too long.
Is Hugh Jackman perhaps being modest, or does he not know the first thing about being a ladies man? It's hard to know, but it sounds like Oscar Maximilian Jackman isn't afraid to use the Academy Award-nominated actor's fame and notoriety to his own benefit when it comes to picking up girls.
