Hugh Jackman Gets His Star

Posted on December 17, 2012

We’d like to have a meaningful discussion about the shininess of Hugh’s suit and whether or not it was a good idea to wear brown suede boots with it, but let’s face it:


Hugh Jackman honored with star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

You’re all staring at his thighs and thus, any chance for meaningful conversation has left the building.

  • You’re right, he should have shown up naked. 

    • A. W.

      His insistence on wearing clothing is a national tragedy.

      • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

        i am totally volunteering for that UN piece keeping mission.

  • mshesterp

    *sigh*  He’s JUST so HANDSOME. I can’t stand it.  Yes, the suit is too shiny, but who really cares with a smile like that??

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      Word. Talk about a mega-watt smile!

  • the suit looks so greasy! he’s so handsome though… i’m torn

    • par3182

      just think of what remains when you remove the suit…

  • What? Did someone say something? I didn’t notice because I was staring at Hugh Jackman (and not just his thighs!) and was temporarily blinded and deafened by him gorgeousness.

  • I’m sorry, he was wearing clothing?
    Must have missed that.
    Actually, I think the suit and shoes are pretty poorly chosen on his part.

  • MarissaLG

    Is his suit…leather?

    • Kate4queen

      pleather even??? 🙂

      • I think it might be waxed cotton or something along those lines, does look like leather though

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Yum. Yum. Yum.

  • Introspective

    love him. dont care what he wears. he shows up & Im smiling!

  • MzzPants

     How did you know??

  • “You’re all staring at his thighs and thus, any chance for meaningful conversation has left the building.”
    Tom and Lorenzo be knowing. 

  • jw_ny

    I wanted to enjoy his thighs and gorgeous face (is that too much to ask?), but the shiny suit, scruff, boots, and crap in his pants pockets were all major distractions.  grrr.  Poor choices on his part for such a momentous occasion.  At least the last photo is flattering…

    • Christine Curran

      Hate the cell phone or whatever it is that looks like a growth on his right leg. Of course, it took me four viewings for my eyes to focus on anything as I was imagining ……sorry, got distracted again.

  • nannypoo

    I have always wondered why, when they get one of these stars, they kneel in front of it and put their hands on it. Do they confuse this with that sidewalk with the handprints in wet cement? And he’s being photobombed by Jay Leno, which seems a little surreal, but then I’m not a celebrity so what do I know?

    • bittykitty

      why is he posing like that? did he personally affix the star to the sidewalk? that being said, he still seems like the most genuine,sincerely nice guy in Hollywood (the fact that he is godly handsome doesn’t hurt either)

      • sweetestsith

         Judging by one of the middle pictures it looks like he might push the star into place? It looks like it’s setting on the sidewalk in that picture, but is settled in place in the others. Not really sure though, I am confused by the pose and distracted by his glorious presence. ::fans self::

  • trisker

    What’s up with “YOU’re” all?  You should have said, admit it, WE’re all staring at his thighs!  I admit I’m staring at his thighs and the rest of him too!

  • Kathy_Marlow

    That man is beautiful. 

  • Monday1900

    He looks like Matthew Perry’s cuter brother in that last pic. 

  • Cecilia Evans

    The look on his face in the second pic is saying “My outfit?  Yeah, I know it’s shitty. But when you look like this, who really gives a fuck?  You’re picturing me naked, admit it.”

  • Dan_In_NYC

    I thought the same thing.  WE’RE all… ha 🙂

  • I can’t be mad. He is just so handsome and rugged and rrawr. And it absolutely helps that he is (seemingly) such a good guy and devoted husband/dad. I mean, what isn’t to like? Even in a shiny suit!

  • Dan_In_NYC

    He is delicious.  I agree that suit is questionable, and the shoes with that suit are a definite no.  But blue suit… blue eyes… that smile.  Optical processing over-stimulated… handsomeness overload.

  • Wow, I’ll bet that suit glows in the dark (which, when you are discussing Hugh Jackman, is sort of besides the point). I wonder what it’s made of. 

  • decormaven

    Bizarre fabric for a daytime suit, but hey, he gets a pass. Those shoes are too casual for the look, but hey, he gets a pass – again. We’re all feeling charitable when it comes to this chap.

  • captrenault

    Not a huge fan of the wetsuit, but at the very least, he should have gone with polishable footwear for it.

  • Cousin_Rose

    he he – you know us so well!

  • He can wear an oil-slick suit ANY time he wants if it means that it’ll accentuate his legs like that.

  • Everything he’s wearing looks like it’s made of plastic or one of its permutations. Try again, sir. 

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Bless his knowing heart for wearing a suit that replicates the look of leather trousers. Bless. His. Heart. (and thighs)

  • TieDye64


  • What suit? He’s wearing shoes?

  • GorgeousThings

    I’m sorry, what? I’m staring at his thighs, especially the shot of him in the runner’s ready position.

    Le sigh….

  • Jay Leno, button up your shirt. You are not Hugh Jackman.

  • l_c_ann

    His smile is also rather special.  And real, especially for an actor.  Who may be a great actor….who am I kidding, the guy looks great. Why worry why?

    • buildmeatower

       I was captivated by his smile too. Didn’t even notice anything else, including thighs and shiny suit.

  • Rand Ortega

    Words suddenly have lost all meaning.

  • miagain

    and smile!!  It’s his smile that gets me!!

    • kschwarting

      Exactly.  He looks genuinely happy to be there, which goes a long way toward mitigating any clothing quibbles.

  • AthenaJ

    I don’t care if it looks like he stole the suit from a New Jersey mafioso, that is a nice big slice of MAN!

  • He could show up in a poncho and cowboy boots and I would love him just the same.

  • bertkeeter

    I love seeing Hugh Jackman on his knees! :))))

    • mmc2315

      Yep.  When I saw that picture of him on his knees, I had a rush of thoughts, and I may very well have started to blush!

  • MilaXX

    I’m more distracted by all the crap in his pockets. It looks like he’s carrying car keys and wallet

  • That is perfect Hugh, just the right amount of scruff and tousled hair. He can wear whatever he wants (or doesn’t want).

  • Qitkat

    Thighs, face, hands, eyes, lips, hair, feet, teeth, knees, shoulders…
    uhhhh….sorry, I got carried away deconstructing him.

  • He’s a doll.  And I like the suit.  I don’t like the open-necked shirt, but hey.  You can barely see it for the smile.

  • StellaZafella

    Thighs, smile, scruffy face, thighs, tousled hair, blue eyes, thighs, smile, thighs…I wonder if he looks like this in the morning…I’d sure like to find out.


  • siriuslover

    Uh, no I’m not! I swear! I was just looking to see if he had his cell phone in his front pocket!

    • StellaZafella

      “Is that a phone in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?” -Mae West

  • joything

    Thighs, arms, chest, smile, that suprasternal notch … shine on! Shine on!

  • What thighs they are! Love the shoes!

  • Perhaps things have changed, but my recollection is that British and Aussie men seem to wear shiny suits on a regular basis- even those whose suits are bespoke.

  • kmk05

    I am going to be really crude and ask why there aren’t any ass shots/shots from behind 😀 What about profile shots as he is kneeling? WE’D GET THE BUTT IN ALL ITS PROFILE GLORY.

    Oh well. We have to contend with the thighs. One thing about shiny suits is that they make thigh scrumptiousness stand out nicely.

  • judybrowni

    You’re getting your picture took, Hugh, you should at least shave for that, even if you haven’t the time for a shave WHEN YOU’RE GETTING A STAR ON HOLLYWOOD FREAKING BOULEVARD.

    I’m officially tired of the two-day beard on the red carpet (and besides, they’re scratchy.)

  • Mmmmmmmmmm……

  • sk8tfan

    And we’re staring at  his chest and his hair and his eyes and his smile and…

  • Sara__B

    Actually, it’s his smile (on top of all that handsomeness) that makes me lose all perspective.

  • Carly Warnock

    That about sums that up. Mmm. Back to staring.

  • FrayedMachine

    Good god he has a smile that could slay a gal. Woof. 

  • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

    i love that third picture, where he is on his knees begging me for mercy, sir, mercy that will not be forthcoming tonight.  and that glint in his eyes reveals his secret joy at my lack of mercy for pretty boys who just don’t ever want to learn,  um.   ok, i’m just going to go have some graham crackers and milk.

  • Scott Isaacs


    Also, grizzled look, in the very best sense, coupled with a very subtle but still noticeable lack of neck beard. Well done.

  • YoungSally

    Maybe he had it laminated just in case it rained.  He didn’t want to run the risk of being indecent.

  • Imasewsure

    He’s sort of Rock Hudson gorgeous, isn’t he? His personality definitely adds to his hotness and I’m sure his clothes are very nice too (I’m sure of this without being able to focus on them of course). What a sweetheart!

  • RocknRollmom

    There is a children’s book called “The Search for Delicious” in which a young man travels a kingdom trying to discover the “correct” definition for the word “delicious.”  I found it and it is him. 

  • kikisayshi

    My thoughts exactly – who’s looking at the suit?

  • It would have been perfection if the suit weren’t so shiny; Still, he looks damn good!

  • Elsewhere1010


  • littlemac8

    Remember when we had Thursday Thighs ever so briefly (I can’t remember what it was really called, but I do remember the content)!  Anyway, Hugh here, could have been a poster boy for those glorious Thursdays!  Dear God, that smile would melt lead!

  • LittleKarnak

    Amen….everyone keep your hands and eyes off my imaginary husband!!!!

  • guest2visits

    ….. How could you possibly have known…!

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    I’ll cheerfully confess to liking Hugh Jackman so much that I will readily forgive any sartorial flaws he may commit. Damn, but he’s handsome and  has that old movie star charisma.

  • pookiesmom

    Why is he putting his hands on the star as though setting his handprints in cement?

  • quiltrx

    Face it, uncles…even *if* Hugh wore something that was generally considered ‘wrong’ BEFORE he wore it…the mere fact that he, a god among men, wore it would be enough to make it ‘okay’ from there on out.

    He’s THAT fabulous.

  • carpediva

    His thighs? Um yeah, busted! You caught me, heh heh, I was totally looking at his THIGHS.

  • ccm800

    something about him on all fours on a LA street just seems pretty natural. 

  • Luke Pacheco

    That number 4 picture… merciful minerva…. y’all should warn a boy…  Is it warm in here?

  • His suit is shiny because his charm comes through no matter what. It’s like trying to cover the Sun with a burlap bag… the light is going to shine through anyway. He’s just so handsome and delightful! J’ADORE!!

  • the clothes are not good, but I can’t see beyond his face.  Be still my heart

  • The PERFECT man.  ‘Nuff said.

  • Nazzzy

    He should stop wearing clothes altogether.
