Hugh Jackman - Hugh Jackman Bonded With Pattinson During Drag Karaoke

Hugh Jackman has struck up an unlikely friendship with Twilight actor Robert Pattinson after the two hunks bonded during a karaoke session in Japan.
The X-Men action star was promoting his 2008 movie Australia with director Baz Luhrmann when he found himself on the same flight to Japan as Pattinson.
Jackman admits his first impression of the Brit wasn't great, telling Mtv News, "I didn't talk to him (Pattinson) at all on the flight, because he's this really tall guy with a hood over his head, literally, and every time I'd go to the bathroom (and pass him), I'd be like, 'Man, that guy takes some serious sleeping pills.'"
But Jackman reached out to Pattinson and invited the Twilight star to join him for a night out - and he was blown away by the actor/singer's vocal talents.
He says, "We went out to this Japanese karaoke bar, and we invited Rob, and he came. And it was so much fun. Man, he's got a voice. Really soulful."
But Jackman admits he was a little disappointed that Pattinson failed to get into the full spirit of things and dress up in drag - just like everyone else.
He explains, "The first thing you do is you get inside this room, the doors are closed, and there's, like, eight of you. So it feels a little weird. And then all of a sudden, they open, and they (karaoke bar staff) bring in these boxes, which are basically (full of) dress-up (clothes), and it's all girls' clothes. I was a schoolgirl, Baz got dressed up, and Rob did not. He was too cool for school."
