Hugh Jackman served some lucky Chicago residents with hot coffee and a smile on Friday
Hugh Jackman surprised fans in Chicago with some hot cups of joe.
Jackman, 50, is busy traveling around the U.S. for his live performance tour of The Man. The Music. The Show. and stopped by Chicago where he found time to sell coffee (and give autographs) to excited fans.
Jackman shared several photos on his Instagram on Friday that showed him offering cups of coffee from the inside of a black truck with the logo Laughing Man, which is part of his foundation Laughing Man Coffee Company that he co-founded with David Steingard.
“Big love to CHICAGO!! Thanks so much for turning out and spreading the @laughingmancafe love!” Jackman wrote in the caption, adding, “@keurig#makeeverycupcount #allbehappy.”
Jackman’s Laughing Man Coffee has a storefront in New York City, which was visited by his friend Ryan Reynolds in May 2018, who jokingly responded to their job listing for a barista.
“We put out word that @laughingmancoffee is looking for a new barista ….and, @vancityreynolds shows up? #makeeverycupcount,” Jackman wrote on Instagram.
Later, the photo appeared again in one of the Laughing Man Coffee Shop’s Instagram Stories, but this time, with a message. “Ok, he’s hired!” the coffee shop wrote, followed by three crying laughing face emojis.
All of Jackman’s profits go toward the Laughing Man Foundation, which he created to assist social entrepreneurs worldwide through educational programs and community development.
