Hugh Jackman - Hugh Jackman's Son Wishes His Dad Wasn't Famous

Hugh Jackman's son wishes his dad wasn't famous.

The 'X-Men' actor admits 12-year-old Oscar is uncomfortable when his famous father gets stopped in the street, but the youngster occasionally uses his dad's stardom to his advantage.

Hugh - who also has six-year-old daughter Ava with wife Deborra-Lee Furness - said: ''My son is 12 and he just wants me to be dad. He doesn't want me to be famous.

''He doesn't like when people come up to me on the street. He would much prefer if nobody knew who I was.

''Although, I've seen him in social situations when he didn't think I was listening, and he once said to a girl, 'Well, my dad is Wolverine.' So when it came to try to talk to this girl, apparently it came in handy!''

The Australian actor is a family man and cherishes the ''everyday moments'' spent with his loved ones more than anything.

He told Parade.com: ''The things that I really cherish are the everyday moments, like sitting around cooking pancakes together on Sunday morning, or getting home after a tough day and my kids come up and give me a hug and remind me what's really important.

''On Friday nights, we will all sit down and watch a movie together and cuddle up. It's more everyday stuff that really is the goal.''

Asked what makes him happiest, Hugh replied: ''Without a doubt, it's my family. I have two beautiful kids, an incredible wife, and it's just about being with them.''
