Aww! Poor Wolverine!

Come here, we'll hold you close and whisper sweet nothings in your ear!

Hugh Jackman spoke candidly yesterday about his participation in Les Misérables and we were shocked to learn how nervous the legendary performer was to sing, dance, and act as Jean Valjean in the gigantically awesome musical!

He revealed:

"I’m more nervous than I have ever been in my life. It’s tough to watch a movie (you’re in)—you put everything into it, you want everything to work, and you never know until you see it all together. In a musical, those feelings are tripled because you have a lot of elements that have to come together. Watching myself on screen for the first time is a little bit difficult, but watching myself sing on the screen is double the anxiety."

Yikes!

Between those nerves of yours and Anne Hathaway's totes harsh criticism of her own performance, one would almost think the flick was destined to be a flop!

Of course, that's not the case at all! Everyone is adoring this movie — with some saying it's the greatest musical ever!

    I think that Russell Crowe should be more terrified then Hugh. Russell is the weakest of all the big name actors in that movie when it comes to singing.

    Think Perez just got back from Peru a day or two ago, so may be relying on reviews or comments from his staff.

    And, since when, does Valjean dance???

    OH PALEEZE GIRL…. - Hugh LOVES watching himself. In fact she does it as often as she can. IT's her favorite pastime.

    If Rapheal was angry at Michangelo for "leaving nowhere for any future artst to go, " then how much more angry must today's actors be at Jackman? Stellar, superb, ephemeral, etc. all pale when trying to describe his performance. I felt like the guy sitting in the chair of the old Memorex commercial: I was simply blown away!
