Hugh Jackman Celebrates Theater, Wears Hats Well

At the 2009 American Theater Wing Annual Spring Gala, theater lover Hugh Jackman kicked up his heels with his wife Deborrah Lee Furness to attend the swank event.

With his wife decked out in a simple black dress, and Hugh wearing a classic black tuxedo, it’s a shame that Jackman didn’t take the opportunity to show off his hat wearing skills.

The X-Men Origins: Wolverine actor was awarded this year’s Celebrity Hat Wearers competition. The Australian topped a list that included Johnny Depp, Peter Andre, Daniel Day Lewis and Sean Connery. For this, Hugh has his appearance in a hat in Australia to thank, as well as his personal style.

Promotional consortium Luton First explains, “Jackman has also been seen sporting some stylish trilby and pork pie hats off screen.” And to this, we tip our hat to him.
