Crazed fan hurls razor at Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman had an unusually frightening morning workout on Saturday. The Wolverine star was exercising at the Gotham Gym in West Village, New York when a crazed fan ran into the gym, crying and professing her love for the actor. According to reports, she reached into her pants, pulled out an electric razor filled with hair, and threw it at him. The attacker, identified as Kathleen Thurston, 47, fled when security arrived, but was apprehended a few blocks away from the gym. She has been charged with stalking and awaits her arraignment. Jackman was unhurt but admitted he was unsettled by the incident. The same woman has stalked him and his family in the past. Recently, she showed up outside his home in New York and near his daughter’s elementary school. Jackman explained he was afraid when Thurston reached into her pants because he thought she was drawing a weapon on him. However, he also showed concern for his stalker, who suffers from mental illness, telling reporters, “Here’s a woman who obviously needs help, so I just hope she gets the help she needs.” Jackman is gearing up for the release of The Wolverine and will soon start filming X-Men: Days of Future Past. ~Cassie Jasinski

    She threw hair from her electric razor… Yeah, something definitely wrong with her. That is so disturbing.

    Get a peace bond/restraining order and hope she gets admitted to a hospital. That’s creepy stuff.

    Since it was an electric razor (not a straight razor), he could’ve taken her down. Easily.
