Hugh Jackman has always been one of my favorite actors. Besides being an Aussie like me, he is still a down-to-earth guy, even though he’s a Hollywood A lister, and a devoted father and husband.

He is also a bit of a joker, and couldn’t help but photobomb a news report outside the Children’s Hospital in Sydney, where Hugh and his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, were visiting.

ETonline writes: “Hugh was at the hospital to launch Fight Cancer Foundation’s Back on Track program with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness. The program is designed to help sick kids keep up with their schoolwork.”

Australian News reporter Jessica Turner wrote on her blog: “As soon as I spotted Hugh coming out the door, I got into position and started my spiel. I knew timing was going to be everything, and my not stuffing-it-up was going to be pretty important because I’d only have one shot!

“I kind of heard someone yelling behind me, but like all reporters, I’m practiced at blocking out any background craziness and staying focused, so I carried on…

Until the Wolverine practically had his arms around me! ‘Photobomb!’ Hugh yelled.

“I was so shocked, I couldn’t believe this mega-star just punked me! I couldn’t help but laugh.

“You can’t really hear it in the clip, but he even yelled out ‘sorry,’ which is when I replied: ‘The best kind of photobomb Hugh!’ Yep, you can photo-bomb me all day Hugh.

“Everyone around me was a little shocked and laughing. The loudest chuckle coming from his wife Deborra-Lee, amused by her cheeky husband no doubt!”
