As the superhero Wolverine, Hugh Jackman is one of the toughest men on the planet.
But even a man with a mutant healing factor can have wounds that never close.
When he was just a little boy, Hugh's mother abandoned his family! He says:
"I can remember the morning she left; it’s weird the things you pick up. I remember her being in a towel around her head and saying goodbye, must have been the way she said goodbye.
As I went off to school, when I came back, there was no one there in the house. The next day there was a telegram from England, Mum was there. And then that was it."
Awww, poor Hugh!
But the boy grew up to be an outstanding man and an amazing actor!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to hear the entire tale of Hugh Jackman, including some new clips of the upcoming Les Miserables!
We're so sorry to hear about his heartbreak, but we wouldn't change a single hair of our favorite magician/mutant/vampire hunter/bread thief!
