Hugh Jackman surprises fan with beautiful gesture

Hugh Jackman surprises fan with beautiful gesture

Hugh Jackman is famously known as the nicest guy in Hollywood, and we’re not surprised after he surprised a young fan on Tuesday with a beautiful birthday video via Instagram.

“Hi Julia. I’m so proud of you. Keep concentrating! I love @elmo too. Happy birthday! Love Hugh,” the 51-year-old captioned the clip shared on his social media account.

Hugh’s video was to a young girl named Julia.

She had previously recorded a message to the Aussie actor in which she said she learnt to say the word “concentrate” after watching him teach viewers how to say it on ‘Sesame Street’ in 2010.

In his sweet birthday message, the movie star told Julia, “You’re doing so well. I’m going to practice hard today as well”.

He then quoted P. T. Barnum, who Hugh portrayed in ‘The Greatest Showman’ in 2017.

“Like P. T. Barnum said, ‘no one made a difference by being like anyone else’. Happy birthday,” the actor said.

Monday he might have missed out on an Emmy award but his gracious reaction overshadowed his loss to Mark Ruffalo.

He applauded and cheered on Mark when he was announced as the winner in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or Movie Category for his performance in ‘I Know This Much Is True’.

Hugh had been nominated for his role in ‘Bad Education’, was seen fist pumping the air with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness by his side in a live stream that was filmed from the comfort of their home.
