Hugh Jackman ‘humbled’ by award
Hugh Jackman is "still a little bit floored" after receiving his Tony Award.
The Wolverine star was honoured with a special award highlighting his contribution to Broadway and his charity work during the recent star-studded ceremony.Hugh was presented with the accolade by his wife Deborra-Lee Furness, and insists he is still shocked.“I am still a little bit floored. I am very humbled by it. I do whatever I can to support the community, but no matter what I do, I feel I get it back tenfold," he gushed to Parade.com."Honestly, it has been one of the joys of my life and I have been lucky enough to work all around the world and there just really is nothing like Broadway.” Hugh is currently filming the big screen adaptation of Les Misérables. The Hollywood star plays Jean Valjean in the movie, and still can't quite believe his luck.“It’s great. We have one more week of filming and I pinch myself every day. We are singing every single take of the song. As a performer, it’s fantastic. It’s obviously challenging, especially when the call is at 8.30 in the morning, but it is so immediate. It is really about the acting," he said. "Les Misérables is one of the greatest stories ever told, and it really is an uplifting story about the human spirit. It is a rare feeling to be in something that you know you will look back on as one the highlights of your life."
