Hugh Jackman - Hugh Jackman watches Elf every Christmas

Hugh Jackman watches 'Elf' with his family every year at Christmas.

The 'Wolverine' star looks forward to sitting down his wife, Deborra Lee-Furness and their adopted children Oscar, 13, and Ava, nine, to watch festive movies and although they try new ones, they can't help but return to the classic comedy starring Will Ferrell.

He said: ''My kids are getting older but we genuinely look forward to watching the same movies. There have been great animated movies, but now they're getting into live action stuff. But 'Elf', for years, has been the one that my wife and the kids have all liked.''

Meanwhile, the 45-year-old actor always knew he was destined to be on the big screen after seeing Harrison Ford star as intrepid archaeologist Indiana Jones when he was a youngster.

He explained: '''Raiders of the Lost Ark' blew my mind. I had no idea movies could be that great and awesome. I was 12 years old, and that's when I remember thinking, 'Oh, I'd love to do that one day.'''
