Hugh Jackman at the Prisoners Germany Premiere

Posted on September 27, 2013

And now, the Patron Saint of Sausage Friday:


Hugh Jackman is seen riding into the “Prisoners” Germany Premiere on a bike in Berlin.

Even if it’s all an act, you’ve got to give the man credit for really selling the idea that he loves being a movie star.

And the reason he’s the Patron Saint is because … well, has he ever looked bad? Even when he’s on the street in a t-shirt, he’s giving us all something, right?

    He’s just the best. Yay, Wolverine!

  • If he had a kitten in his breast pocket he couldn’t be cuter.

    • H2olovngrl

      I totally want to photoshop that in, now!

    • decormaven

      All the likes to this!

  • jeneria

    He seems to really enjoy his successes. I don’t think I’ve ever read where he’s trashed a single one of his roles. His enthusiasm is infectious.

    • H2olovngrl

      Seriously, he is just such a trooper! And a class act to boot.

    • Rhonda Shore

      Along with enthusiasm, he comes across as being a nice person.

      • SorayaS

        I think the niceness is what keeps him from being too Tom-Cruise-robot-creepy in his enthusiasm. When he speaks he seems incredibly down to earth.

  • Chuck Barthelme

    He is adorable. Saw him on The Daily Show, and he’s no dummy either. Comes off as smart and down to earth. He fakes enthusiasm well if this isn’t genuine in these shots.

    • Chuck Barthelme

      Also, I’m always impressed by his ability to wear a suit that doesn’t make him look like an overstuffed meathead. Which many other men with his, um, physique, don’t seem to be able to manage.

      • mlle

        I assume he would rather rock a suit than just wear one, and utilizes the service of a tailor accordingly. Which makes me wonder: I know the ladystars borrow their outfits, but what about the men?

        • demidaemon

          I think the ratios work out about the same. 99% borrow, 1% buy their own and tailor (usually the more old-school stars).

  • He’s been gracious and grateful since he first burst into stardom in 2001. If he’s been acting all this time, give that man an armful of Oscars! Love him.

  • Oh goody, a break from the Wolverine hairstyle! Yay!

  • GorgeousThings

    The Patron Saint of Sausage Friday. OMG, you slay me!!!!!!

  • formerlyAnon

    He really seems to know how to give the impression that he’s fully engaged right where he is, it’s something between quite nice and fantastict here, and he’s so glad to see you. If he can project that, it’s almost – almost – just icing on the cake that he moves like a dream and consistently looks good.

  • Tanya Wade

    If for nothing other than the way he wore that coat (!) in Kate and Leopold, he will always get a pass and be the king of Sausage Friday.

    • majorbedhead

      Man, I loved that film. I don’t care how shallow that makes me.

      • formerlyAnon

        I’ve never seen it. Guess it’s time to put it in the queue.

        • filmcricket

          It’s really horrifically sexist if you look at it from the Meg Ryan’s character point of view, but it has Jackman, Liev Schrieber, AND Brad Whitford (not to everyone’s taste I know, but I love him), so I feel you can mitigate the sexism somewhat by doing some oglin’.

      • mlle

        I remember disliking it, but I’m pretty sure that I saw it before I cared about boys so should probably revisit.

  • bellafigura1

    OK, bucking the tide, I’m done with him. The goofy part has officially turned me off.

    • ConnieBV

      I actually love a man who loves being a dork. If you love acting like a goof, then I heart you, random dude. Helps that homeboy is FOINE.

      • To me, there is nothing sexier than a hot dork.

        • editrixie

          Adorkability. It cannot be undersold.

          • sisterb67

            Seriously, I was worried I might get spontaneously pregnant watching Hugh and Jimmy Fallon trying to out-dork each other during their arm-wrestling match.

  • ashtangajunkie

    Seeing him just has to make you happy, doesn’t it? Who could be sad, looking at Hugh Jackman?

  • NBG

    Steps off bike and suit is impeccable. How is that possible?

  • marlie

    My love for Hugh Jackman is undying. He looks fabulous, and I love how he always manages be so charming!

  • Frank_821

    I actually loved that entrance. Up their with Gregg Clark and Lola

    • marlie

      “Don’t touch Lola.” Made me LOL.

  • Jessica Freeman

    He seems like such a genuinely happy person. And damn if he ain’t fine.

  • MoHub

    Gimme, gimme, gimme!

  • MilaXX


  • mjude

    how can you not love his charm?

  • Cele Deemer

    I think he is the bomb.

  • Are there enough nice things to say about him? I don’t think so. Charm, class, good looks, and grace. What more could we want from our Movie Stars?

    • mshesterp

      And why aren’t there more of them like him??

  • PlethoraofBooks

    Oh TGISF.

    • PlethoraofBooks

      Also, this makes my day. Love it!

  • Nancer

    He looks so cute and young here! Loving these pics.

  • Judy_S

    Looking at these photos, I realize I would have been in love with him at any age, from about 8 on. He is such a combination of dashing looks and sweet personality.

  • Just Me

    Hugh Jackman is the Patron Saint and Matt Bomer is the Undisputed Heavyweight Champ of Sausage Friday. Jackman makes you feel like going to confession for your naughty thoughts about him…Bomer leaves you hoping he will tie you up, take you home and make all those naughty thoughts come true.

    • ConnieBV

      Sorry, I have to say Joe Manganiello outweighs him for me.

      • Just Me

        The “Greatest of All Times” is an ongoing debate…there is a champ for everyone.

    • JulieK

      Two words for you: JON HAMM.

      • Sartorial_She

        Four word for you: Jon Hamm’s john ham. Hilarious!

        • JulieK

          I know! I love that bit on SNL! I don’t know how he got through it without cracking up. So funny!

  • OrigamiRose

    Of course, I clicked on this as I’m listening to a discussion of the naked cyclist race in London and merging the two concepts together, Hugh Jackman, naked cyclist… :))

    • I saw the World Naked Bike Ride through London in June. It was a little frightening. The bodies involved were not Jackmanesque.

      • OrigamiRose

        They never are, are they? We should advocate for an all-Sausage Friday Naked Bicycle Race.

      • Courtney

        I used to work concessions at a nude beach, and it was much the same.

    • Angela_the_Librarian

      Ugh, I think even with Hugh Jackman that would be a bad kind of naked

      • hillmad

        How can anyone, male or female, fit or not, ride a bicycle naked? Oh the pain!

      • formerlyAnon

        My city, and my part of it in particular, boasts a bike rider known as “The Guy in a Thong.” He is lean and reasonably fit, though past the first bloom of youth, and it’s not particularly scenic.

        • H2olovngrl

          We have “overly tan greased up lady in bright and tight disco inspired bike shorts ensemble jogging” in my neck of the woods. Also past her prime which is ok, but the baby oil…! NOT attractive.

          • JulieK

            We have “very hairy man in very tiny shorts and that is all” in my area. It’s most unfortunate.

          • H2olovngrl

            I guess there is one in every town; God Bless America!

  • MzzPants

    What’s not to love?

  • ChaquitaPhilly


    • DTLAFamilies

      That sounds like something you’d yell in surprise: HUGH JACKMAN ON A BICYCLE! I had no idea aged cheddar could be so expensive!

      • filmcricket

        And that’s now added to my lexicon of ejaculations (ahem). Thank you!

  • bhl_1123

    And I shall start this Friday with a prayer . . . amen.

  • largishbearishAtlish

    who is the other guy on the bike? looks vaguely familiar?

  • fauxprah

    Excellent understated make-up and prominent wedding band placement.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    And I have found my new desktop wallpaper…love him on the bike!

  • Jacquelyn

    *sigh* I love Fridays

  • imakeart

    Mere mortals could not look acceptable in a suit on a bike. He looks fabulous, and I still say his smile is his best feature.

  • Mrs. Julien

    Not only has he never looked bad (having the appearance of the hero in a historical romance novel is very helpful with that), I have never heard one bad thing about him. He’s just so… professional.

    • A friend of mine knows people, always has scuttlebutt, and has never had a bad word to say about him. Any rumours are likely to be of him reading to kids in hospital or helping old ladies across the road. He seems to be the real deal of nice men!

  • Chaiaiai

    Bless that man. One of these days, we need a Darling vs. Danger man-face-off like Virgins vs. Vixens. I feel strongly Hugh could be in BOTH categories;)

    • formerlyAnon

      Oh YES.

  • Jaeda Laurez

    Between Hugh Jackman and Idris Elba, my Sausage Fridays are always complete. They’re just everything I want for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa- they’re what I want to find during the Easter Egg Hunt, and I WISH they gave them out at Halloween. If they gave him instead of red packets for Chinese New Year, I wouldn’t even be mad about it.

    • lobsterlen

      Not sure who but someone mentioned how they wanted to see Idris in a kilt. Couldn’t get that image out of my mind. However its been replaced. Now lets all imagine Hugh and Idris both wearing kilts, together in the same photo. That would be the best Christmas present ever for the Bitter Kittens.

      • demidaemon

        Make it without shirts, and I’m sold.

  • Hoffa_w_HerHead

    I love when a man embraces who he is; Hugh embraces his metro sexuality, and it works for him!

  • Ashleigh


  • Terri Terri

    The ecstatic expression on the man whose face is being signed is like a delicious tidbit of bonus sausage!

  • Julia

    Just when you think he can’t be any more charming, he rides a bike into a premiere and signs people’s faces. DAMN YOU, HUGH JACKMAN!

  • Every time I see him interviewed, I always think “His wife is a lucky woman!”. But when he talks about her, or looks in her direction, his face says – “How did I get so lucky?” swoon… He’s pretty much perfection in my book.

  • sagecreek

    Yep. He always looks like he’s having fun, even when I’m pretty sure he isn’t.

  • Imasewsure

    He’s what all celebs should be (or at least pretend to be)… Hail to Thee O Sausage King…. you look cute in a suit on a bike!!

  • ShaoLinKitten

    I love him because he has been married to the same non-celebrity wife for 17 years. He’s the real deal.

    • alyce1213

      She is a celebrity, but not here. She was a huge, established star in Australia when they met and married — he was an unknown or little-known. But props for being married so long (also, she is several years older).

      • ShaoLinKitten

        Thank you for correcting my American-centric perspective on who is a celebrity! He is a mega-star, and his greater fame does not seem to have harmed their relationship. I love him for it!

      • formerlyAnon

        And by “several” you mean 13 years older.

    • rajf

      Have you seen the show “Kimchi Chronicles” on PBS? He and his wife appear on it frequently as they are apparently good friends with the hosts of the show. And they hang out and cook (he cooks! he eats! he is funny and warm).

      • formerlyAnon

        I love that show. The food is somehow always so beautiful.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    I prefer the bulked up Wolverine Hugh but this is yummy too. His wife is a costume designer so it makes sense he looks impeccable in a suit no matter what his current size is. Sex on a bike.

  • lobsterlen

    Hugh just seems to be in love with life.

    Anyone know why they rode up on bikes? I thought “Prisoners” was a very serious dark movie. Just seems like a comical entrance for such a dark movie.

  • GoAwayKardash

    I saw his one man show in San Francisco before he took it to Broadway. I must say, his enthusiasm and love for acting – be it stage or screen – seems truly genuine.

  • Praise be to God. *sign of the cross*

  • Shawn EH

    More mugging, Hugh! Or whatever else you feel like!

  • Sunraya

    Now, this guy has a good attitude toward being an actor. And he actually has a lot more talent than some of them who cringe at the whole deal. He is happy, funny and a good sport. Bravo!! And yummy, too!!!

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Yes, Long live St. Hugh of Jackman!

  • procrastinatrice

    Any Sausage Friday without a bite of Hugh Jackman is incomplete in my book. Patron saint indeed.

  • Meredith

    I just thought “Carey Grant”. But in all other cases Hugh Jackman doesn’t do anything for me, though I think he does come off as a…great person?

  • HobbitGirl

    I don’t even care why there’s a bicycle. I love this man.

  • kimmeister

    What the heck is that a picture of on the front of their bicycles?

  • Contralto

    Really, could he be any more adorable?

  • He seems to be slimming down from ‘massive-pumped-up-Wolverine-Hugh’. Which makes me wonder if he is going to do a project as ‘song-and-dance-man-Hugh.’ Squeal!!

  • berkeleygirl

    I’m not one to use all-caps, but: WHERE”S THE BUTT READ?

  • quiltrx

    The only way he could be ANY cuter is if he were covered in puppies! This man REALLY knows what he’s doing…to ever last one of us. 🙂
