The sexiest wolfy to ever howl at the movie-screen moon combined entertainment with politics Tuesday, when he took Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard on a guided tour through the currently under-construction sets of mega-movie The Wolverine.

This wasn't just a tour of interest, ’cause Gillard and the Aussie government are actually helping finance the flick, providing a one time, federal grant of $12.8 million.

Nice!

Hugh Jackman will obviously be reprising his role as the volatile X-Man in the Japan-centric film, and he stated at Tuesday's press conference:

Australia Gets First Female Prime Minister

Filed under: AustraliasticPolitik

After the Labor Party revolted against Premier Kevin Rudd, they showed their support for another another qualified candidate - Julia Gillard, who will be sworn in as Australia's first female Prime Minister!

Political analyst, Andrew Hughes, said:

"Australian politics has been quite conservative, and it comes as a big shock for a woman to be elected prime minister. Since our time of federation in 1901, over 109 years, we've had 26 prime ministers, and not one has been female. It's taken a long time, but we've gotten there."

Gillard was unopposed during a vote of her party's lawmakers on Thursday, just hours after Rudd's fall from grace.

"I feel very honored," she said. "Well, first woman, maybe the first redhead…. I'll allow you to consider which is more unlikely."

And Gillard has the qualifications! She has served on the Cabinet as deputy prime minister.

It's about time! Equality for all!
