Hugh Jackman will die for Oprah

True story. Before the show, Hugh Jackman told Oprah, “I would die for you, brother,” and Oprah said, “Okay, prove it.” Hence, this.

Oprah held her show at the Sydney Opera House on Tuesday with guest Hugh Jackman. Hugh was zip-lining in from the top sail of the Opera House but hit the brakes too late and injured his eye after running into a lighting rig. Medics rushed in but the injury was minor so they gave everyone the go-ahead to laugh at him.

Jackman made it clear that it was his fault and not the stunt team’s as he became distracted by the crowd. “I came down waving to everyone, looking over Sydney Harbor, saw my dad, the kids and you, went to pull the brake and then boing,” he explained to Winfrey. “Totally my bad.”

Who hasn’t become lost in the crowd as they zip-lined down at 15mph from the roof of the Sydney Opera House and forgotten to hit the brakes? Happens all the time. Coughidiotcough.
