Hugh Jackman’s co-stars have confirmed the Aussie actor is one of the ‘nicest human beings’ on the planet.
While celebrities tend to make headlines for their diva-ish, demanding behaviour, Jackman has made a name for himself for the opposite reason.
Jackman has always seemed like the ideal celebrity to grab a pint with and it looks like his colleagues can finally confirm that.
Despite Jackman grieving the loss of his father, who struggled with Alzheimer's for 12 years, while shooting his latest film, The Son, his co-star Laura Dern said the actor maintained his sunny disposition even in the face of adversity.
She told Variety.: “He’s the nicest man ever.”
The co-president of Sony Pictures Classics, Michael Barker, shared a similar sentiment: “He’s one of the most quality human beings I’ve ever met.”
Ryan Reynolds also recalled to the outlet that while meeting the Aussie for the first time during the filming of X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Jackman instantly greeted Reynolds with a warm welcome despite fighting off major jet lag.
“The thing about Hugh is that he’s always been consistently himself," he added.
The two actors recently made headlines when they revealed that Jackman would be reprising Wolverine in Deadpool 3.
Reynolds posted a 'quick explainer video' sharing that his long-time friend would be a part of Deadpool's emergence into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Of course, the news sent shockwaves through the internet.
One person on Twitter wrote: “This is still the best movie news of 2023! Can’t wait to see @VancityReynolds & @RealHughJackman back on the screen together! #mcu #deadpool3 #kevinfeige.”
Another shared: “Best comeback!! They actually broke the Internet this day.”
A third person said: “It's gonna be terrific ”
While another commented: “LETS F**KING GOOOO"

In the same interview with Variety, Jackman revealed that he had intended to retire from playing Logan; however, in 2016, he began considering a comeback while watching the first Deadpool.
He said: “I went to a screening of Deadpool. I was 20 minutes in, and I was like, ‘Ah, damn it!’
"All I kept seeing in my head was 48 Hours with Nick Nolte and Eddie Murphy.
"So it’s been brewing for a long time.
"It just took me longer to get here.”
