Hugh Jackman Gets A Star On The Hollywood Walk of Fame

Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman received star number 2,487 in the streets of Hollywood yesterday and it was a great experience seeing him in person!  Les Misérables director Tom Hooper was in attendance, as well as castmates Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried.  The Tonight Show Host Jay Leno was the guest speaker.

And now, here are the photos!

The freshly polished star. This photo was taken around 8:30 am, before the crowd arrived and the ceremony started. The guys have just finished working on it and it’s ready to be unveiled later during the day. I didn’t wanna wait for that, I was too excited. Might as well take a picture before everyone else does, and while it’s still shiny!

The ceremony was held in front of Madame Tussauds, and they were nice enough to put out a wax figure of Wolverine outside to match the occasion.

As expected, news teams and fans from Australia made their presence felt. Aussie Aussie Aussie, Oi Oi Oi!!!

Congratulations, Hugh Jackman!
