Hugh Jackman Burns Down a Neighborhood

Lest you doubt the joy that Hugh Jackman will bring to the Academy Awards show, which he is hosting, witness him getting Punk'd by Ashton Kutcher in what is, I believe, the cruelest practical joke I've ever seen on this series. How celebrities handle themselves on hidden camera before, during, and after the prank tells you a lot. And Jackman just endears himself to you when he is made to think that he's not only caused a fire and several explosions to erupt at director Brett Ratner's house, but also destroyed the neighborhood. Watch:

    I'd watch it, because I would love to be endeared of Hugh Jackman...but I hate Ashton Kutcher so much that I can't!

  3. Poor Hugh.

    After the cameras left I wish he would have beaten the crap out of Brett and Ashton.

  4. That was so brilliant!! A true testament to a person's goodness is definitely how they respond to such a situation, during and after the joke has been revealed. I have adored Hugh Jackman since the first X-Men movie and now I know why (because most of his movies sure are no reason for adoration)!!
