This morning Hugh Jackman was honored with a hand and footprint ceremony at Hollywood’s fabled Grauman’s Chinese Theater, in celebration of X-Men Origins: Wolverine opening wide next week. So imagine the WOW Report’s surprise as we wandered down towards the media frenzy, and came face to face with Jackman in full Wolverine costume, and managed to grab a quick one-on-one interview and photo with him before he was whisked away to have his paws pressed in cement.
SC: Hugh! How does it feel to be celebrating this milestone in your illustrious career?
HJ: I wouldn’t call my career illustrious. I live in a studio apartment.
SC: Haha! I read in the Hollywood Reporter that you were hyped to be the next James Bond, but that producers opted for Daniel Craig instead. Were you terribly disappointed?
HJ: I don’t look anything like Bond. Besides, who’d want to have their picture taken with a man in a suit? You can do that at a wedding.
SC: You’re a funny guy! Do you think it was your comedic skill, as well as your musical talent, that landed you the gig as host of the Academy Awards this year?
HJ: Didn’t see ’em. The Oscars are a bunch of self-congratulating fags.
SC: Yes. Speaking of, what do you have to say about those persistent rumors that you are homosexual?
HJ: Are you calling me a fag? I’m straight as a poker, man. Superman, on the other hand, he’ll suck your dick for $40. I seen him do it in the alley behind California Pizza Kitchen.
SC: OK, thanks for the interview, Hugh!
HJ: You still owe me a dollar for that photo you took.
