Hugh Jackman Posts a Mother's Day Video from 'Les Misérables' Set
"By the way, my name is Hugh." This guy is simply one of the kindest, coolest, most appealing actors in Hollywood and it shows with these kinds of videos. One person delivering a special Mother's Day message today is Hugh Jackman - straight from the set of Tom Hooper's Les Misérables, which they are still currently shooting in England. The video was tweeted out by Jackman himself (found via Collider) yesterday on @RealHughJackman along with the message: "Happy mother's day from the set of #lesmis!" It gets a bit awkward with all the vacuuming, but it's good stuff. It's a bit short but sweet, as that's what counts the most.
Tom Hooper (The King's Speech) is directing Les Miserables, an adaptation of the successful stage musical based on Victor Hugo's classic novel set in 19th-century France, in which a paroled prisoner named Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) seeks his redemption. Alain Boublil adapted his own work with Claude-Michel Schonberg, who also wrote the stage musical, Herbert Kretzmer and William Nicholson. The film also stars Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne and will hit theaters everywhere in 3D on December 14th, 2012 later this year. Charming?
