  • Oh hey, Hugh. Oh heeeeeeeey!

    p.s. Can you get Jamie Lannister to join you? Thanks.

    • LibKat

      THIS x1000!

    • Darcy H

      I’ll be in my bunk.

    • eandh99

      or check youtube for the footage of Tom Hiddleston fight-training with Hadley Fraser for Coriolanus, swords and hand to hand

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        That sounds so worth watching.

    • jilly_d

      Oh thanks a lot for that little brain picture. Now I won’t get ANYTHING accomplished tonight.

  • marlie

    I am LOVING the facial hair on Hugh.

  • @Biting Panda


  • Sarah

    I’ll train you, if you want, Mr. Jackman.

    I heart NYC…. you never know what treasures you are going to find in the park (and this one isn’t stuck to your shoe!!). LOVE IT

  • Theresa

    And all is right with the world again.

  • Anna

    Where do I sign up for personal training?

    • FibonacciSequins

      See my comment!

      • Anna

        Wow, nice! Sigh, indeed.

  • titaness25

    I honestly wonder about the NYPD’s regular days
    . Like, “Officers…there’s a really burly man swinging swords around in the park.”
    NYPD: “Ehn. Probably a movie.”

    • barbarienne

      That’s pretty much the reaction of the locals, too. “Oh look, Hugh Jackman working out with swords.” “Nice.” :pause for a moment because it IS Hugh Jackman and even NYers aren’t THAT jaded: “Right, I gotta get to work/lunch/errand. See you later.”

  • altalinda

    Show off.

  • FibonacciSequins

    A while back he auctioned off an hour of him being a personal trainer, for some charity. I never wished so hard to be rich.

    Just imagine walking through the park one morning and coming across him working out with swords…sigh.

    • Trent

      “Working out with swords”…is that what the kids are calling it? I volunteer…

      • FibonacciSequins

        I’ll be your second.

  • alyce1213

    I love the expressions on his face, especially the last. There’s something about him that’s so attractive and likable — it’s a rare quality.

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      I know the fact that he’s happily married gives him high marks in my book

  • bunnybstuff

    “Hugh Jackman Does Combat Training at Park in NYC.” This made me happy before I even got the first picture to load. My friday just got infinitely better.

  • Nikko Viquiera

    The title alone made me all tingly! Rawr!!

  • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

    I wish I could be the dermatologist who gets to do his mole checks.

  • Malia C.

    *eyes pop out of head, tongue falls to the floor*

  • MilaXX

    I love Sausage Friday’s

  • OhSayNow

    In my head he is singing, “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General.”

  • another_laura

    Look, I love this guy, I really do, but this is the equivalent of starlets doing cartwheels on the beach, isn’t it?

    • smayper

      Yes. Like he couldn’t find a private place to train? But hey, it’s still lovely to look at.

      • cocohall

        I thought the same, but hey, Hugh is pro and has to know that this is the sort of free publicity that can only help the franchise. And if we are calling out our boystars for doing the equivalent of the purse showcase in the parking lot (Hi there, Reese!) I MUCH prefer this to James Franco and his instagram selfies of him doing a ball check for testicular cancer. His mom lives in our neighborhood and that shit is making it hard for my to look her in the eye and say hello.

  • Shelby

    Oh God, I can die in peace…

  • THIGHS.Even dreadful Adidas trackie daks can’t hide them.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      Is that a cell phone in his pocket, or is he happy to imagine me looking at his pictures?

  • Tara

    What if – what if! – you were just walking through the park and saw this? I’d die, I’d be dead.

  • majorbedhead

    I may have to re-think my no-facial-hair policy. This is two in one day that have made me go all swoony.

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Had I know, I would have gone for a walk in that park. He is a sight to behold, and that beard … sigh. (On a sartorial note, I like the way the stripes on the pants line up with the stripes on the shoes, but are reversed. I noticed that while admiring the thighs.)

  • Trickytrisha

    He’s never been my cup of oolong, but I can see the appeal.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    I might like this even better than Blue Steel Joe. A sweaty Wolverine with swords. Be still my beating… uh… I’ll be in my bunk.

  • Him and Jaime Lannister in a movie as swashbuckling brothers. MAKE IT SO.

  • Meri

    Humina humina.

  • Vtg Fashion Library

    My ovaries, teetering on the edge of menopause, just exploded into overwhelming orbs of fertility.

  • Airkisses

    yes GAWD

  • 021010

    Wolverine got to him

  • formerlyAnon

    Transferable skills. Or, not so much. Actors. Their lives.

  • anonylind

    Oh my!

  • Malibufire

    Beards, feh. Guaranteed to make a guy look 20 years older. (Or straighter, depending on your definition.)

  • SierraDelta

    He has a bandaid on his right thumb. Poor Hugh, he has an owie. I’d be happy to kiss it to make it feel better. . .

  • unbornfawn

    This is fun.

  • Danielle

    Oh dear, I seem to have licked my computer screen.

  • Sunraya

    He’s so handsome, but not pretty, I like that! And I like that his wife isn’t all Hollywood glamor, she just looks like an attractive, nice lady.

    Love the guy on the scooter !
