Hugh Jackman Loves Rupert Murdoch

Hugh Jackman and Rupert Murdoch are both Australian, therefore they are automatically best friends. Okay, we honestly have no idea why they’re such good buddies, but they are. Jackman is the godfather of Murdoch’s daughter Chloe, and he’s dedicated to spreading the Gospel of Rupes.

Vanity Fair, knowing that Jackman considered Murdoch his brosef, asked the actor what people would be surprised to learn about Murdoch:

He is a very loyal person and, for example, he met my mum once, and about two years later remembered her name. It doesn’t matter who you are in the room or if you are the important person in the room, he doesn’t see people in that way. He remembers names of children and everyone. He pays attention to everybody and is very charming in that way.

Of course Jackman is extremely famous, so the fact that Murdoch remembers his mother’s name doesn’t exactly show that Murdoch cares about common folk.

Regardless, hearing Jackman stick up for Murdoch warms our hearts, and gives us hope that a Jackman/Murdoch cop buddy film might one day become a reality.
