Hugh Jackman Quotes / Quotations

To me, the smell of fresh-made coffee is one of the greatest inventions.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


There comes a certain point in life when you have to stop blaming other people for how you feel or the misfortunes in your life. You can't go through life obsessing about what might have been.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I have a wife and a son, but the gay rumors have started. I guess it's a sign that I'm moving up the ladder.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Now I meet people with full-color Wolverine tattoos on their backs. Thank God I did okay, because I think if I hadn't, they'd spit on me in the street.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I was probably more scared of my high school exams than I was of the Oscars. At the time you think it's everything and if you don't do well, your life's over. Opportunities are gone. So the more you do it, the less the fear is present.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I would love to have a robot at home.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I've never heard my dad say a bad word about anybody. He always keeps his emotions in check and is a true gentleman. I was taught that losing it was indulgent, a selfish act.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


But in another world, another life, probably growing up in another country, I might have been more of a dancer.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I once sang 'Summer Nights,' from 'Grease,' at a bar in Melbourne with John Travolta, who's a good friend of mine. He looked cool singing the part of Danny - sitting in an armchair, smoking a cigar - while I got stuck playing Sandy.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Meditation is all about the pursuit of nothingness. It's like the ultimate rest. It's better than the best sleep you've ever had. It's a quieting of the mind. It sharpens everything, especially your appreciation of your surroundings. It keeps life fresh.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I love food, all types of food. I love Korean food, Japanese, Italian, French. In Australia, we don't have a distinctive Australian food, so we have food from everywhere all around the world. We're very multicultural, so we grew up with lots of different types of food.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I can look back on my life, where there have been moments where things might have gone the other way. Everything is like stepping stones, and I've seen people I admire falter. We're all vulnerable.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Becoming a father, I think it inevitably changes your perspective of life. I don't get nearly enough sleep. And the simplest things in life are completely satisfying. I find you don't have to do as much, like you don't go on as many outings.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I've always felt that if you back down from a fear, the ghost of that fear never goes away. It diminishes people.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I have lots of older siblings, and as they started to leave the house, I went from cooking once a week to twice, three times, and so on. After a while, it was just like making the bed.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I had spent some time in the outback, but to meet Aboriginals and work with them was wonderful. It gave me a great appreciation of how tough life is and about the indomitable spirit that the Aboriginal people have always possessed.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


My father was an army champion boxer... in the British army. And so he loved boxing and talked it up as a sport. But then when my brother and I were beating the crap out of each other, he was always trying to tone it down. But I am a fan of boxing.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


The most scared I'd ever been was the first time I sang at a rugby match, Australia versus New Zealand, in front of one hundred thousand people. I had a panic attack the night before because people have been booed off and never worked again... just singing one song, the national anthem.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm lucky to have worked in theater all over the world, but there's something magical about Broadway. The audiences are smart, they're educated. They go in ready and they're up for it, they're up for the party. It's a whole different atmosphere.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


The word philosophy sounds high-minded, but it simply means the love of wisdom. If you love something, you don't just read about it; you hug it, you mess with it, you play with it, you argue with it.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Your wife is always right. Very simple. I think I'm going to get it tattooed on my forehead.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I find that kid actors are great reminders of the simplicity of acting. As you get older, you can sometimes complicate things a little more. You can become too aware of, 'Okay, this is the scene emotionally. This is where we need to be. We've got the climax coming up.' You can start to analyze it too much.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Being on Broadway is the modern equivalent of being a monk. I sleep a lot, eat a lot, and rest a lot.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


If I'm a lush at anything, it's food and drink. I'm not materialistic in any way, but I value food.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


When I come home, my daughter will run to the door and give me a big hug, and everything that's happened that day just melts away.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


One afternoon when I was 9, my dad told me I'd be skipping school the next day. Then we drove 12 hours from Melbourne to Sydney for the Centenary Test, a once-in-a-lifetime commemorative cricket match. It was great fun - especially for a kid who was a massive sports fan.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm quite a competitive person, so I do quite like to win.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Breakfast is my specialty. I admit it's the easiest meal to cook, but I make everything with a twist, like lemon ricotta pancakes or bacon that's baked instead of fried.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


The secret to modern life is finding the measure in time management. I have two kids, career and I travel, and I don't think my life is any different than most couples. The most valuable commodity now for many people is time and how to parcel that out.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I have a terrific marriage, but unlike a lot of relationships where they ebb and flow, no matter what happens you fall deeper and deeper in love every day. It's kind of the best thing that can happen to you. It's thrilling.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


The activity of being a husband, a father - those are roles, too, but underneath them is the spiritual center that connects us all, and that's what's most important.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


What I respect as far as in myself and in others is the spirit of just doing it. For better or worse, it may work and it may not, but I'm going to go for it. Ultimately I probably prefer to be respected for that than whether it works out or not, either winning or losing.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


At the end of drama school, I made a contract with myself: I'd try acting for five years. I was 26. I had already spent eight years working in restaurants and gas stations. So I had seen enough small businesses to understand that that's what acting is: a small business.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


My father is a real idealist, and he's all about learning. If I asked for a pair of Nikes growing up, it was just a resounding 'No.' But if I asked for a saxophone, one would appear and next day and I'd be signed up for lessons. So anything to do with education or learning, my father would spare no expense.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I never wanted to go longer than five years off the stage. Not necessarily musicals, but just doing a play or something.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


If I go to a party I don't feel like I have to be in the centre. But I do find myself quite often being placed in that position. Even when I was younger at school, I would be asked to make a speech. I don't remember putting up my hand and all that often but I'd just find myself there.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


As you get older you have more respect and empathy for your parents. Now I have a great relationship with both of them.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


It's fair to say that, by 'X-Men 3,' Wolverine had gone a little soft, and I agree with them there. What fans love about Wolverine is his more uncompromising approach to life. He is who he is. He's not always a nice guy. He has got edge. He's an anti-hero. And, there's also a vulnerability in there. There is conflict and battles going on in there.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I just love making a fool out of myself. I made my living as a clown at kids' parties for about three years.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm not a kid. You don't get in this business for anonymity. It's not like I have posters of myself on the wall, but at the same time, I'm kind of ready for a little bit of it, but I worry for my little one, and my family - their privacy. That's what I'm more protective of.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


My favorite play in drama school was 'The Bacchae.' It's about a king who literally gets eaten alive by all the women in the play in a kind of orgy - it's related to the word 'bacchanal' - and I loved that idea of animalistic chaos and following our own desires.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Actually, I graduated from university as a journalist.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm a mad lover of sport. You cannot say a bad word to me about sports. So I know business is involved and I know it can be cynical, and, of course, I watch it, but for me it's pure.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I feel so lucky to have both a son and a daughter, because there's a different relationship with each of them.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Now I meditate twice a day for half an hour. In meditation, I can let go of everything. I'm not Hugh Jackman. I'm not a dad. I'm not a husband. I'm just dipping into that powerful source that creates everything. I take a little bath in it.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


The first show I ever did, singing and dancing, was 'Beauty and the Beast.' I was playing Gaston. Gaston has red tights, knee high boots, and it's very physical. I had headaches every day for two months.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Both my parents are English and came out to Australia in 1967. I was born the following year. My parents, and immigrants like them, were known as '10 poms.' Back then, the Australian government was trying to get educated British people and Canadians - to be honest, educated white people - to come and live in Australia.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


My gosh, I love food. If I wasn't an actor, I could be a completely different body shape right now.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I like the Rolling Stones for karaoke. 'Sympathy For The Devil' is a great one.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I just find the evangelical church too, well, restrictive. But the School of Practical Philosophy is non confrontational. We believe there are many forms of Scripture. What is true is true and will never change, whether it's in the Bible or in Shakespeare. It's about oneness.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I had a bad back for a couple of years. I had to do a lot of physiotherapy for it. What I couldn't understand at the time was why the therapists had me doing a lot of stomach work.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


As a boy, I'd always had an interest in theater. But the idea at my school was that drama and music were to round out the man. It wasn't what one did for a living. I got over that.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Salvatore Ferragamo have done some nice handmade suits for me.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm always very nervous about the word 'dancer' next to my name because anyone who's really trained in dance will go, 'This guy's fudging so badly.'
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


But anyone who's done a musical knows; whether you're dancing or not, physically it's the most difficult thing you can do.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm not doing Bond.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Americans are the most generous country on the planet. I've worked in Europe, I've worked in Australia. There is no where else where you get absolutely no attitude for being a foreigner. If you do your job well, they embrace you.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


There was a whole display set up of all the X-Men paraphernalia. My wife couldn't resist telling this 5-year-old boy that I was Wolverine. The little kid looked up at me and he was staring at me.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


There is anxiety, but it comes after you've finished filming because it's out of your hands; people are editing it, they're cutting it, marketing it. And it's... part your career sort of rides on that. But when you're actually filming it's a team thing and it really feels good there for me.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


With age, you see people fail more. You see yourself fail more. How do you keep that fearlessness of a kid? You keep going. Luckily, I'm not afraid to make a fool of myself.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm a big goofball, you know. Don't tell anyone that, but I'm a big goofball. In Australia we call it a dag.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


By nature I'm not a brooder.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm not a loner at all.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


To get down to the quick of it, respect motivates me - not success.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


To this day, I am the least materialistic person I know, because my father didn't raise me to just go out and buy this or that car. The only reason I wanted to make money as an actor was because I'm passionate about food!
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I have done many movies that people hadn't seen. 'The Fountain,' I spent a year on that. 'The Prestige' with Chris Nolan, and 'Australia.' From my perspective it's very satisfying. Some movies people see and other movies they don't. 'Wolverine,' 'X Men,' I know that in some level people know me just for that and it's fine for me.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


In terms of theater, there's not a more supportive theater community than in New York. It's really kind of a real thrill to go there. I mean, don't forget, I'm a boy from the suburbs of Sydney, so getting to New York is a huge, huge thrill.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Comic book fans have loved Wolverine, and all the 'X-Men' characters, for more than the action. I think that's what set it apart from many of the other comic books. In the case of Wolverine, when he appeared, he was a revolution really. He was the first anti-hero.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I have two children and it's amazing how in tune they are with nature, with light, with smells, with time.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


You have to eat before you train. Otherwise, that really intense training, after about 40 minutes you start to flag.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I've dreamt of being in a movie musical for a long time. For some reason I never even thought 'Les Mis' would be possible.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


One of things I'd love to do one day is a Shakespeare with Trevor Nunn. I've done musicals with him, but never Shakespeare. There's no one better.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm an actor who believes we all have triggers to any stage of emotion. It's not always easy to find but it's still there.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


We feel that there are so many kids who need adopting. We thought we'd do it after having a couple of our own, but we just changed our mind.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


One thing I do personally started 20 years ago. I started meditating, and I know twice a day I can kind of let everything drop. It's just about being quiet, like drawing back the day, and it allows me to have energy.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


When you're playing an icon like Wolverine, it's sometimes better to be someone that nobody knows because they don't know what to expect. I don't mind a little bit of anonymity; it helps on the subway.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I know I'm not known as method. By nature I'm not a brooder. What I continue to use is a mixture of the English school, which is traditionally outside-in, and the more American way of working from the inside out.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


The last 10 years I have had to bulk up for roles and I'm naturally skinny, so I have eaten and killed so many chickens! I wouldn't even want to count. I need to balance that out.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


If you ask my wife, the biggest fault is my inability around the house. She says the only thing handy about me is that I'm close by. And, I have a terrible memory. I'm bad at saying no. I often double-book. There are a lot of things.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Singing is incredibly physical.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Tiramisu is my favourite.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


It dawned on me that acting was what I wanted to do with my life. Nothing had ever touched my heart like acting did.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


At which point should we let go and do what we want to do, and when should we submit to rules? Coming to terms with our true natures and who we really are has always been a fascination to humans. I know it fascinates me.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


For Sunday breakfast, I make orange and ricotta pancakes, crepes and eggs. You know men, we usually go for breakfast because it's the easiest thing to cook and then we try to make it seem fancy.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


As an actor, you have many tools - your body, your voice, your emotions, mentally. In film, you have your eyes because they communicate your thought process. In fact, generally in film, what you don't say is more important than what you say. That's not so much the case for stage.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm doing a new musical on Broadway, which opens in October called 'The Boy from Oz,' where I play Peter Allen. For those of you who don't know, he became first famous in America for marrying Liza Minnelli.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I have two kids, career and I travel, and I don't think my life is any different than most couples. The most valuable commodity now for many people is time and how to parcel that out.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


It's always interesting - how do you actually convey thought through song? We're used to the convention on stage. In film, we used to be used to it, and now sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. You need to be fresh and really look at the material.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


That's all about the natural order of things, the idea of nature protecting children but also children protecting nature.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Coming to terms with our true natures and who we really are has always been a fascination to humans. I know it fascinates me.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


My kids are not that interested in my movie career, by the way. My son, in particular, never talks about it. He just wants me as his dad.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Because I believe actually the more you do something, the less frightening it becomes because you start to realize the outcome is not as important as you think.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I lived with a coffee farmer called Dukale on a trip I made with World Vision to Ethiopia, and realised there's no good reason for the disparity in opportunity around the world.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I got hooked on espresso when I visited Italy at 18, but these days I prefer a 'flat white.' It's like a small latte with less milk - they're popular in Australia.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


My parents were drawn to the idea that there was space and opportunity in Australia. For the meagre sum of 10, you could sail your entire family out to Australia, so that's what my father chose to do.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm doing 'Les Miserables,' the movie. I've done a lot of musicals and a lot of movies, and I know there are not a lot of people in Hollywood who have been down those two paths so I've been like, 'Come on, let's do a movie/musical.'
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


My friends say, 'Man you're going to have kids sleeping on pillowcases with your face on it! You're going to be on toothbrushes and magnets and stuff.' I guess now that I'm a dad, I'm thrilled about that.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I don't think many actors are the best judge of careers. I think generally we have good instincts about what we can do in terms of acting. And often they become directors, which I don't want to be.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I'm quite an independent person, and I had to be. As a boy and growing into a young man I had to look out for myself. And now I'm very family-oriented. It's a big priority in my life.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Sometimes you have to go places with characters and emotions within yourself you don't want to do, but you have a duty to the story and as a storyteller to do it.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I have shocking teeth. . . . I'm being a little facetious - I just went to the dentist the other day, and he looked at my teeth and went, "Oh, my God, you've got gray teeth."
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


Joking about being selected 'most sexiest man' as People Magazine's annual choice, 2008: I think we ran a very strong campaign and I'm not proud of it -- I can admit it now. We're the first ones to run a negative campaign and we spent years bringing Clooney, Pitt, Damon, and McConaughey down to size. I was prepared to do absolutely anything.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


My idol was Olivia Newton-John...I had her poster and I would kiss it every day. I met her and told her that...and she was like, "Great".
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


When I came out of drama school I was like, 'I'm going to do anything I can just to keep working'. In drama school you do Shakespeare to movement to circus skills to singing all in one morning. I know a lot of people hated it but I reveled in it. I loved it. It's weird how it evolved.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I can look back on my life, where there have been moments where things might have gone the other way. Everything is like stepping stones, and I've seen people I admire falter. We're all vulnerable.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I was at a Warner Bros. event and all the stars were lining up backstage. Sylvester Stallone was in front of me and [Clint Eastwood] was behind me and we were all embarrassingly close. I turned around before the line went off and said: 'Good day Mr. Eastwood, Hugh Jackman.' Clint replied: 'Yeah I know.' I continued: 'By the way, I know we've gotta go but I've been told I occasionally look like you in films.' Clint replied: 'You're holding up the line kid.' I'll never forget it. I went on stage bright red and never looked at him again. Clint has never asked me to be in any of his movies or have an audition.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


The things that I really cherish are the everyday moments, like sitting around cooking pancakes together on Sunday morning, or getting home after a tough day and my kids come up and give me a hug and remind me what's really important.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


When I come home, my daughter will run to the door and give me a big hug, and everything that's happened that day just melts away.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I understand at Marvel they've got The Avengers, they've got a lot of big things going on, but at some point I just find it almost impossible that there's not a way to bring Iron Man, all the Avengers characters, Wolverine, the X-Men characters, Spider-Man, and somehow get them in together.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman


I just heard Oscar, my son who's thirteen, telling a friend, 'Enough about my dad, all right? The truth is he's nothing like Wolverine. He's not cool, he's not tough, he's nothing like that'.
Quotation of Hugh Jackman
