Hugh Jackman, the actor best known for playing Wolverine in the X-Men franchise, is currently in the midst of a world tour. While he may be an action star to some, he’s known to many others for his musical talents. Recently starring in The Greatest Showman, which earned Jackman a Grammy Award (he’s now one Oscar away from EGOTing), the actor is now taking his song and dance show across the globe.
Many people have already had the pleasure of seeing Jackman live, including a handful of celebrities. Richard E. Grant, the actor recently nominated for an Oscar for Can You Ever Forgive Me?, caught the show this week and shared a star-studded photo of the experience. While backstage, the actor met up with Jackman, Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service, Rocketman), Matthew Vaughn (director of the Kingsman films and X-Men: First Class), and supermodel Claudia Schiffer.
