Shortly before he decided to study at the Academy, his grandmother died, which left a legacy of Hugh three and a half thousand dollars. It was such a fee and tuition.

In 1999, he was nominated for “Best Actor of the Year” and named Australians “Man of the Year.” In addition, he was recognized as the most well-dressed man in Australia, and People magazine included Jackman one of the fifty most beautiful people in the world.
And then it finally drew the attention of Hollywood. Logan’s role in the famous blockbuster 2000 “X-Men” Hugh has brought enormous popularity and made him one of the most sought-after actors.
After the premiere representatives of Hollywood studios lined up to get a brilliant artist. As a result, Hugh chose the painting “Someone Like You” and “Password -” Swordfish. “In 2001, the actor starred in the romantic comedy” Kate & Leopold “.
