Hugh Jackman Owes Me $1.25

The Sexiest Man Alive is being formally immortalized today in Grauman cement–well done him. But if I have any say in the matter, it’s gonna cost him $1.25! Since such hand and footprint ceremonies requires sectioning off most of Hollywood Blvd, green-living Los Angelinos like myself who faithfully take public transport to work are routinely required to seek alternate routes.

Not a good thing if you happen to be endowed with no sense of direction at all like yours truly. Thirty minutes and $1.25 later I finally crawled to my desk …

So congratulations Mr. Jackman on joining the legion of legends that adorn Grauman’s Chinese … and whenever you get around to it, I could really use that $1.25.

  1. Sorry to hear about the stuff up when HJ was having his hands immortalised, trust me, he owes a friend of mine a whole lot more than you. This friend of mine gave HJ his first co-lead in a series titled Corelli, a role that was already going to another established actor, but Cam fought hard for this at the time no name actor…HJ met his wife, became a mega star and now Cam works as a poor waiter down the coast…HJ never thanked Cam, he always had to pay to see HJ in the theatre etc……Loyalty is long gone…
