HUGH JACKMAN
“My Kids Won’t Admit That I’m Cool”

He might be one of the biggest stars in the world with countless fans, but when it comes to his own family, Hugh Jackman has a hard time convincing his two children that he’s “cool.” Talk about a tough audience, right?

According to People – the Australian native said that his children Oscar, 13, and Ava, 8, aren’t his biggest fans…. yet. He said at The MOMS’ Mamarazzi event on Wednesday, “They’re not going to give that up to me. They’re not going to be like, ‘Yeah Dad, you’re the coolest! My son actually saw the movie, and I asked him what he thought, and he begrudgingly goes, ‘Oh, awesome.’”

The actor added, “He’s at that age where it can be embarrassing. He’s now like, ‘Can you please stop talking about me? This is killing my reputation. He wants me to be his dad. He doesn’t like when we get stopped on the street or when people recognize me.”

BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH
Is He Ready To Have Kids?

cumby18

I’ve only started reading about Benedict Cumberbatch a few weeks ago and finally starting watching him on Sherlock on Netflix just to say what all the buzz is about this British actor since he’s everywhere on the blogs these days. And you know what, I’m hooked! Not only is he a fantastic actor, but he seems like he has a great, down-to-earth personality, too. The Brit opens up to Elle Japan Magazine about the prospect of being a father one days. He says:

It is a wonderful thing to get married young and become a father. I used to think that I’d get married by mid-30’s and have children. But now I think I can wait. I’m no longer in a hurry to get married. I would like to first get to know the partner and build a trusting relationship before making the commitment.

Here’s hoping that happens soon! :-)

JESSICA ALBA
Opens Up About Her Family Life

According to Jessica Alba, her family life is just perfect these days! The Hollywood actress opened up about her life with her husband Cash Warren and their two daughters to Hello! Magazine. Here are some highlights:

On her family
We’re a happy family. When I first met Cash, I felt like I’d known him my whole life. And my parents are a pretty good example of showing me it could work. They got together when they were 16 and 17 years old and are still happily married.

On her husband
Cash is great. He’s the best father ever. He loves preparing meals for Honor and taking her out to play if I’m with the baby, or just feeling a bit tired at the end of the day. He’ll sit and watch children’s movies with Honor and teach her different things – it’s really beautiful to watch them together.

On how she’s the disciplinarian in their house
From my own experience, I know it’s important for me to make sure Honor grows up knowing what is proper behavior and good manners. I don’t want to see her growing up into a younger version of myself!

On her career
Before I started my family, acting was my total focus in life. I know that my looks were my path into Hollywood, but I never really enjoyed the kind of attention that comes with the [sex symbol] image. I was very hungry to have a serious career and now I’m able to do both family films and darker kinds of movies. It’s the best of both worlds for me.

I’m finally comfortable in my own skin – I can embrace the idea of being a sexy and self-confident woman.

I also have different priorities as a mother. I’m not afraid to turn down film roles now if I feel I need to spend more time with my children.

HUGH JACKMAN
Talks About Being Abandoned By His Mother

hughgood

Hugh Jackman seems like one of the most good-natured (and not to mention sexiest) actors out there in Hollywood right now. The actor opens up to Good Housekeeping magazine, where he talks about being abandoned by his mother at an early age. Here are some highlights from his interview:

He was abandoned by his mother at age 8: “She saw me off to school wearing a towel round her head and when I came back she was gone. Two days later there was a telegram saying she was in England. It took me years to realise it wasn’t temporary. I’ve been reunited with Mum since. We see each other four or five times a year.”

On being a comic book character: “I find it interesting. If I didn’t I’d get out. I was given three pages of script. [My wife] read them and said, ‘There are words like *kerpow* here.’ She thought it was beneath me. I was working with Trevor Nunn at the National Theatre (playing Curly in the 1998 production of Oklahoma). It’s the only time my wife has ever been wrong — and you can quote me on that.”

He gained 25 pounds in 12 weeks for the role: “The problem is my height. I’m 6ft 2in and lean but in the books he’s 5ft 3in and stocky. Part of the bulking-up was to make me look squatter — more Mike Tyson than Hugh Jackman. He was a touchstone because he’s ruthless and has that Wolverine build.”

Never meet your idols: “I said, ‘Good day Mr Eastwood, Hugh Jackman.’ He said, ‘Yeah, I know.’ So I said, ‘I’ve been told I occasionally look like you in films.’ And Mr Eastwood replied, ‘You’re holding up the line, kid.’ Well, I still watch his movies for inspiration …”
