Hugh Jackman: Fan Favorite in Tokyo

Hugh Jackman: Fan Favorite in Tokyo

Showing some love to his Japanese fans, Hugh Jackman showed up at the Narita International Airport outside of Tokyo on Tuesday (August 27).

The Les Miserables hunk looked happy to see a crowd of folks waiting to welcome him as he scurried off the plane and through the terminal, sporting a black t-shirt that showed off his beefy arms.

Hugh recently signed on to star in Madeleine Stowes directorial debut Unbound Captives, due in part to the fact that his 13-year-old son wants to see him play an all-American cowboy.

Jackman explained, “He knows all about this project and keeps asking me, “When are we going to go and live with the American Indians” He knows all the nuances – who the tribes are and where they lived. It”s fascinating to me.”

He added, “When you come to riding as an adult as I did… I really learned how to work with a horse in my 30s and was much more cautious than if I”d ridden as a boy or young man. But when you ride cutting horses every day for months, like I did in Australia, even falling off a few of them, I discovered that I genuinely loved being on a horse and now have to find a reason to get back out to the West and ride again.”
