Robbie Williams - Robbie Williams Wanted Hugh Jackman For Swing Albums

British pop star Robbie Williams was desperate to enlist actor Hugh Jackman for an album of swing tunes.

Former Take That star Williams experienced a resurgence in the pop charts in 2001 when he released Swing When You're Winning, featuring actress Nicole Kidman on a cover of Frank and Nancy Sinatra's classic Somethin' Stupid.

He released follow-up Swing Both Ways in 2013, featuring star turns from Lily Allen and Michael Buble, and the Angels hitmaker has now revealed he was eager to land a guest appearance from the Wolverine actor as well - but Jackman was unable to find time in his filming schedule.

Williams tells Australia's Daily Telegraph, "I love Hugh Jackman, I really want to work with Hugh Jackman and I wanted him for the Swing album, but he was between Wolverine and his next blockbuster."
