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!!!
The stars have arrived!
Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Walk of Famer, Hugh Jackman! He’s greeted by the warm cheers from the crowd and warm hugs from his loved ones and friends from the industry, including Anne Hathaway.
Academy Award Winning Director Tom Hooper sat beside Anne Hathaway. He’s most known for his work on The King’s Speech.
Guest speaker Jay Leno took the stage…
…and went on to give him a big hug.
Hugh was given the certificate.
All eyes on this super good looking man now.

His exclusive photographer:
That’s his daughter, Ava. She’s already a better photographer than me.
He posed with his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness.
Photo op with cast mates!
For Les Mis fans, the caption can also be Fantine, Jean Valjean, & Cosette!
After the ceremonies were interviews here and there. Here’s one with his fellow Aussie, Renee Bargh from Extra.
Before I end this post, please check out the trailer for Les Misérables:
It opens December 25, 2012.
For those who want to visit his star, it’s on 6931 Hollywood Blvd, right in front of Madame Tussauds.
Congratulations, Hugh Jackman!
Remakes always draw comparison to the original no matter how producers try to avoid it, I still haven’t watched this so I can’t say much just yet. For now, let’s compare the trailers…
1990 TRAILER WITH ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER
2012 TRAILER WITH COLLIN FARRELL
I kinda choose the original over the remake (as in most of the time) and I’m an Arnold fan so I’ve made my decision, a biased one haha. What’s yours? The new one’s still pretty cool though.
Alright let’s get started. Smile guys, you’re on camera!
You’re gonna be on TV tomorrow!
The celebs aren’t here yet. Let’s spot some interesting stuff. Let me see what my camera finds… aah that’s a nice one…
It’s a Stormtrooper! Wait, what? What is this, Star Wars? I see three of these guys here. Maybe the soldiers on this film look like them.
Let’s look for something more…
Yeah. That fits better. Colin Farrell’s picture ready to be signed. That guy holding it is probably gonna sell it later haha.
Here we go, celebrity arrivals…
Wave to fans, sign autographs, then go straight to the press for the interviews…
John Cho is here! He’s very well known from the Harold and Kumar films but if you remember, he’s also from American Pie, one half of the guys who introduced us to the term, “MILF”!!! MILF! MILF! MILF! And like the rest of the cast, he’s back for American Reunion. Today he’s here for Total Recall of course, but I just feel like shouting “MILF! MILF! MILF!!!”
I’ve seen John before but I didn’t get a good shot, now here’s my chance! Here he is being interviewed by Renee Bargh of Extra!
Bryan Cranston also stops by. He’s most well known for his roles is Malcolm in the Middle and Breaking Bad.
Here comes the beautiful Kate Beckinsale being escorted by husband and executive producer/director of the film, Len Wiseman.
By the way, I just watched Much Ado About Nothing a couple of days ago. She’s so cute there! And I didn’t realize she was Hero until after I saw the film credits. Okay back to present time… she looks so lovely in that beautiful long gown!
And for all you folks, this is how you take a celebrity photo with style!
Another beautiful lady has arrived, no other than Jessica Biel…
I’m not very much into fashion but that gown just looks a bit weird from behind. What do you think?
Is that the one Justin Timberlake gave her? I wish I could get a close up shot of her ring.
Let’s have some more of Kate…
Wait a minute, I can sense an overflowing of coolness in the house… could that be… Aaaah!!! It’s the Godfather of Heavy Metal, Ozzy Osbourne!!!
Wow I didn’t expect that. That’s what I love about movie premieres, there are always surprises. It’s actually a family night out, according to this:
Sometimes I feel like I should really make a Twitter account already.
And now the man of the hour, Colin Farrell!
*Mwah* to everyone!!!
I really hope this movie turns out to be great. I’m highly skeptical, but I hope for the best. Anyways, tonight I’m just happy seeing the stars of the film, especially the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale. I love you Kate! And Jessica Biel as well. I love you too Jessica!
That’s it for tonight folks. But before I go, let’s have one more of Jessica Biel…
Oh she’s busy reading, let’s not disturb her haha. Goodnight and see you guys again soon on the next Red Carpet Premiere!
