Hugh Jackman Gets Real About His Emotional Childhood — 'From The Moment Mum Left, I Was A Fearful Kid Who Felt Powerless'

| Filed under: Film FlickersInspirationHugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman


In a revealing new interview, Hugh Jackman opened up about his painful upbringing that resulted in years of aggression, and how the stage is the only place he finds peace. The 46-year-old may star as Blackbeard in the upcoming flick Pan, but it seems he may relate more with the Lost Boys.

For the first time, he shared:

"I was volatile. My mum left when I was 8. My anger didn't really surface until I was 12 or 13. It was triggered because my parents were going to get reconciled and didn't. All those years I'd been holding out hope that they would."

With a guy as genuine and classy as the Australian heartthrob, you wonder where he channels the intensity for roles like those in The Wolverine and X-Men — and now we have a glimpse:

"There was this perfect storm of hormones and emotion. I've never said this before: I just remembered that we had those metal school lockers, and for some reason, half in fun, we used to head-butt the lockers until there was a dent in them. Like, who was the toughest and craziest?"

What a dynamic duo!

On Tuesday, Charlize Theron and Michelle Obama teamed up to deliver some amazing advice at Glamour's The Power of an Educated Girl event in New York. Considering the two are both strong women and have daughters, we think they were the perfect choice for the speaking engagement!

The inspiring duo, who both aim to increase young girls access to education, strongly advised the audience to forgo a boy's attention for personal empowerment.

In fact, Michelle joked that if she cared about what other people thought, she wouldn't be married to the President of the Untied States today! Obama said:

"Let's just be clear you don't want to be with a boy that's too stupid to know you're a smart, young lady and I want to encourage all of us as young women, as older women, we have to raise our own bars, you will not be successful hanging around people who drag you down. There is no boy at this age that is cute enough or interesting enough to stop you from getting your education. If I worried about who liked me and who thought I was cute when I was your age, I wouldn't be married to the President of the United States."

Preach, girl! All too often women give up their dreams for men!

Theron echoed the mom of two's statement, adding:

"There is nothing sexier than a smart woman. We have been told to live by a certain mold, especially women, and it's time to break it and it's up to us to do that. Stop waiting for men to do that, look in the mirror and see yourself and say I am sexy, I am attractive, I am smart, I am intelligent, I am powerful, I have a voice, I look cute in these jeans. Yes, I don't have long hair, I have short hair but I am still a girl and I'm still hot."

Woot! The actress definitely knows what she's talking about, especially since she's raising two kids solo! Not to mention the gorgeous gal has been involved in women's right organizations for years.

Hopefully these two pair up again sooner than later — women need all the influential advocates they can get!

It's so nice to see these two together again!

Just two years after David Beckham presented Malala Yousafzai the Pride of Britain Award for her courageous acts against terrorism, the pair reunited at the Global Citizen Festival in New York City on Saturday.

For those who don't know, the Nobel Peace Prize recipient survived an assassination attempt from the Taliban in 2012. The young girl was targeted simply because she refused to follow the group's order that women couldn't attend school, a major blow to the brainiac.

Not to mention Malala was outspoken against the terrorist organization's practices in her region of Pakistan and often contributed to blogs detailing her oppressed life as early as age 11.

This is so incredible!

Jaxon Emmett Buell — who was born to Brandon and Brittany Buell — celebrated his first birthday about a month ago and it was a MIRACLE!

That's because Jaxon was born with a brain malformation that meant he probably wasn't going to survive very long.

Jaxon has Anencephaly which is a birth defect that causes children to develop without parts of the brain and skull and, as a result, often die shortly after they're born.
