Hugh Jackman A “Smash” Hit On Oprah!
Hugh Jackman forgot to hit the breaks during a special entrance for a taping of 'Oprah' in Australia. The 42-year-old star was set to make a dramatic entrance from the top of the Sydney Opera House, sliding down a cable... but he didn't stop, and smashed into a lighting rig. "That was so much fun, until the end," joked Jackman, according to a Reuters UK report. He told Oprah the excitement made him hit the brakes a bit late. "I came down waving to everyone, looking over Sydney Harbour, saw my dad, the kids and you [Winfrey], went to pull the brake and then boing," he said. An Australian TV news segment -- with video of the incident -- reports Jackman got "a slight cut to his eye." An eyewitness reporter called the incident "unbelievable" and said "he basically face-planted the back wall of the stage."
