Apparently when Hugh Jackman isn’t making terrible movies or mincing around a Broadway stage, he likes to kick-back and unwind by listening to a little rap. In an interview with Next Movie, Wolverine himself seemed to gush over some of the biggest names in hip-hop.

“I think Eminem is extraordinary, and one of the greatest live acts I’ve ever seen. I’m a real fan of live music, but if I go to a concert and I feel that I’m just getting their CD, basically, played for me, it bores me. I would prefer to just listen to it,” he continued. “But he, Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Dr. Dre: It was one of the most electrifying nights I’ve ever been a part of. I was actually ushered to this area and I went behind the stage and just watching Dr. Dre get ready to go onstage, it was kind of like watching a prizefighter getting ready for a big fight. There’s just so much that they put in to every song. And Eminem, he’s just, oh my God, he’s just the consummate performer.”

Obviously Hugh isn’t the exact target audience for rap music, but the man knows a good tune when he hears one. If you don’t believe us, just check out this little number. Maybe he can combine his love of rap and his love of theater into a hip-hop inspired Broadway show titled Damn it Feels Good to be an Aussie.
