Hugh Jackman & Ava: Scoot To School

The race is on!

X-Men star Hugh Jackman was photographed with daughter Ava, nearly 8, in New York City on Monday (June 10). The father-daughter duo beat the traffic and rode their scooters to school.

Last week, the pair were seen heading home after class. Joined by the family pooch, Ava scooted alongside her walking papa.

The Wolverine actor starts his day at 4am to prepare for his physically demanding role.

“The one joy I’m allowed each week is after I do squats. I’m allowed a piece of toast with peanut butter,” Hugh shared. “I have oatmeal for breakfast, and brown rice or yams for lunch.”

“There are never any carbs after 3pm,” he added. “If you just made that one change and did nothing else, you’d lose 11 pounds in the first month.”

Also dad to 13-year-old son Oscar with wife Deborra-Lee Furness, Hugh says it’s not easy keeping his fab physique at the age of 44.

“At my age losing fat becomes much harder,” he said. “I’m fit and lean, and I’m using that as a base to build muscle.”
