Love the idea of exploring the world: Hugh Jackman

LOS ANGELES: ‘Wolverine’ star Hugh Jackman says he enjoys the “romance and adventure” of visiting new places and having different experiences.


Jackman, 46, said, as a child, one of my heroes was Captain James Cook, who explored the oceans and another historical figure who fascinated me was Lawrence of Arabia.

I’ve always loved the idea of exploring the world and going on great journeys of my own.

“For me, the idea of travel is a great metaphor for enjoying the romance and adventure that comes with visiting exotic places.

You never know what new kinds of things you’re going to discover and I think my wife and children have always enjoyed the idea of taking exotic trips with me.”
