Hugh Jackman Gets Ready To Strip For Oscars

A glossy photoshoot for Tony-winning actor Hugh Jackman was just the thing to prepare him for his upcoming stint as host for tonight’s Academy Awards.

Most hosts of the past have been comedians, but Hugh’s got other things going for him. And I’m not just talking about his singing, dancing and acting skills.

CNN asked the Wolverine star if he planned on hosting nude, to which Jackman replied, “Drunk and nude, yes. So that’s our new fresh approach. It’s the Australian way.”
