Hugh Jackman Rides A Fat Hog Into Tempe, Arizona

It’s an ironic twist, considering that Hugh Jackman is staying out of Mexico City to avoid the swine flu.

The Aussie star was met by a crowd of fans in Tempe, Arizona for the premiere of X-Men Origins: Wolverine as he roared into town on a motorcycle. Why Tempe, you may ask? Well, the Phoenix suburb won an online voting contest and subsequently hosted the film opening.

In addition to Hugh, costars, Ryan Reynolds and Liev Schreiber also turned up to the event. Here’s to wondering if they each got their own “nudie bits” doggie bags after filming!
