Hugh Jackman Proves He’s The Greatest Showman With His Impressive Hidden Talents

Hugh Jackman is best known for playing a raging regenerating Marvel mutant. Adamantium claws aside, you probably didn't know that off-screen he's a man of many impressive party tricks.

Did you know? Before diving into a successful movie career, Hugh was a P.E. teacher at Uppingham School in England. Keep that stored away for a future pub quiz.

Here, the Australian actor tells the story of being a 10-year-old yo-yo champion at his public school, winning with 47 consecutive Loop The Loops.

But Hugh doesn't stop there. He goes on to share his ability to catch coins straight off an elbow, and how a past friend could fart tunes at will. All the while physically showcasing these applaud-worthy hidden talents.

He also reveals who would win in a fight between Deadpool and Wolverine, and Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart's tea-drinking antics on-set of the X-Men films.

The Greatest Showman is out on Boxing Day in UK cinemas.
