Hugh Jackman is feeling pressure about hosting the Tony Awards. The Les Misérables star is looking forward to acting as master of ceremonies at the prestigious theater awards on June 8 and although he knows the crowd will be very welcoming, he is putting pressure on himself to deliver. In an interview with Access Hollywood, he said: ''There's always a little bit of pressure, but mostly put on myself. It couldn't be a nicer, more welcoming crowd and I can say that from experience, because [the] first time I came here, I actually had never been on Broadway and I said, 'Guys, I can't do that.' And they said, 'Don't worry, they'll be very welcoming.' I didn't really believe [it] until I walked out and I was amazed. So, I'm excited.''
The ceremony, held at New York City's Radio City Music Hall, has a star-studded guest list that includes Neil Patrick Harris, Chris O'Dowd and Bryan Cranston, all of whom are hoping to be honored for their Broadway performances. Hugh hinted he had a few surprises up his sleeve for the ceremony, teasing, ''I've got a lot of surprises in store.'' He joked that his X-Men character Wolverine will only come out, ''if someone's cell phone goes off.''
