Hugh Jackman Wishes You and Yours a Happy Mother’s Day from the Set of LES MISERABLES

     May 12, 2012


By now you’ve probably given up the prospect of trying to get your mom to agree to see The Avengers for Mother’s Day, but if you’re still searching for that perfect last-minute gift, the multi-talented and uber charming Hugh Jackman has come to the rescue.  The actor is currently filming director Tom Hooper’s (The King’s Speech) big budget movie musical adaptation of Les Miserables, but he took some time out of his busy schedule to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s Day from the set in full Jean Valjean garb.  As if there wasn’t already reason enough to think that Jackman was the coolest/nicest guy in showbiz, he goes and makes a video as funny and sweet as this.

On top of the fact that this is a genuinely kind gesture from Jackman, we also get a brief look at Hooper’s Les Miserables soundstage sets in London.  Hit the jump to watch the video.  Les Mis also stars Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway and hits theaters on December 14th.

Jackman shared the video via his Twitter account:

Here’s the official synopsis for Les Miserables:

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
