Hugh Jackman Says Oscar 'Scopes the Crowd for Chicks'
In a humorous appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Hugh Jackman revealed that his 8 ½-year-old son Oscar Maximillian is all about the ladies — and all about using dad’s career to rope them in! The 40-year-old actor was honored Tuesday with a hand and footprint ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Los Angeles, and while Oscar was on hand to mark the occasion, his attention was focused elsewhere. “He’s already scoping the crowd for chicks,” Hugh said with a laugh. “It’s unbelievable!”
Oscar proceeded to approach the group of girls, and what he said next left Hugh floored. “I could hear him go, ‘Hi, how are you? I just wanted you to know my dad is Wolverine,” Hugh recalled. “He brings them over, and goes, ‘Dad, give them an autograph, will ya?'” Oscar’s little sister Ava Eliot, 3 ½, was also present at Grauman’s and — like her brother — the significance of the day was not readily apparent. After the ceremony, she asked Hugh, “How did it feel?”
Oscar and Ava are Hugh’s children with wife Deborra-Lee Furness. He can next be seen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, opening May 1st.
