Hugh Jackman always feels guilty if he is short with his fans.
The actor has been called the nicest man in Hollywood, and has admitted that it is easier to greet autograph seekers with a smile because if he is rude instead, he will spend the rest of his day worrying about it.
He said: ”I suppose there have been times where I’ve been a bit short with people. And I find that the minute after, my mind is like, ‘Why did you do that? That poor person, they just wanted a photo,’ or whatever. It stays in my head. It’s actually harder work for me. It’s easier for me to be polite and look people in the eye and shake their hand than to do it any other way. Maybe it’s just the way I was brought up.”
Hugh, currently starring in Pan, always buys lottery tickets for the cast and crew of his movies on Fridays, explaining that his attempts to treat everyone equally on set are because he didn’t find fame until relatively late in his career, and he was often treated badly up until that time.
He explained to The Guardian: ”I didn’t have any power in this industry until I was maybe 30, and I’ve had many, many jobs where I was way down the other end of the food chain, and so I always respected the people who were at the top who seemed to care about what you did and appreciate you. So I’ve tried to never forget that.”
