Papa’s got a brand new bod! Hugh Jackman and wife Deborra-Lee were spotted in New York City today (November 28), taking their 6-year-old daughter Ava to school and walking the family pooch.
You may notice that Jackman’s looking a little lighter these days. The actor tells NPR that the recent weight loss is due to his return to Broadway.
“We started a week ago,” says Hugh, 43. “They’ve already taken my pants in three times.”
Quite a difference from his days prepping for Wolverine when he was eating a whopping 6,000 calories daily.
In the show, Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway, the Aussie incorporates anecdotes about life with his wife and two children – Oscar, 11, and Ava – but at least one of the kids isn’t exactly a fan.
“I said, ‘Guys, I want you to be really honest. My feelings won’t be hurt. You can say whatever, but I just want to know if you like the show or not. Do you enjoy it?'” Jackman recalls. “And my son goes, ‘You know, Dad, I really like it. … My daughter said, ‘I find it a little boring,'” he laughs. “I said, ‘Fair enough. You’re 6; I get it!'”
Despite the slightly bad review, Hugh says that he’s having a great time on stage, saying, “I sometimes pinch myself that I’m getting the chance — it’s like ultimate karaoke.”
