TMI Alert: Jackman’s Pubes Suffer for His Art: "From the “You didn’t want to know but we told you anyway” file: Hugh Jackman rips his own pubic hair out to prepare for tear-filled scenes.
World Entertainment News Network reports the tough Aussie with a penchant for musicals admits he has trouble crying on cue — but thanks to a fellow thespian’s advice, he can turn on the waterworks.
Jackman used the technique for one scene in sad art movie The Fountain."
Update: As the anon commenter below points out, this is pretty much out of context and not as exciting as it might seem. The video of the interview with the actual source is here.
