Hugh Jackman Almost Dies for Oprah

The Superficial / December 14, 2010

“I have found your blood offering acceptable, Australia. Kia Sorentos for everyone!”

Hugh Jackman almost lost his life for Oprah while filming a segment at the Sydney Opera House this morning. He was supposed to make a heroic zip-line entrance to the stage, but instead decided to crash directly into the lighting rig to prove how straight he is. I honestly can’t say I wouldn’t do the same. Via Popeater:

“That was so much fun, until the end,” joked Jackman, according to a Reuters UK report. He told Oprah the excitement made him hit the brakes a bit late.
“I came down waving to everyone, looking over Sydney Harbour, saw my dad, the kids and you [Winfrey], went to pull the brake and then boing,” he said.

Awesome. So basically Oprah’s trying to kill celebrities for sport now by making it look like a tragic accident handing out free iPads. Well, we knew this day would come. Someone get Entenmann’s on the line. Tell them “Chocolate Godzilla wants people danish now.” They’ll know what to do. They’ll know what to do…
