Hugh Jackman is in mourning. The actor announced on Instagram the death of his father, Christopher John Jackman, without specifying his age or the causes of his death.
“In the early hours of Australian Father’s Day, my father passed away peacefully. And despite deep sadness, I am filled with gratitude and love. My father was, in a word, extraordinary. He dedicated his life to his family, to his work and to his faith. I pray that he will now be at peace with God. », Posted the star of X-Men in the caption of a photo of her dad.
Hugh Jackman was very close to the one he described in an interview for 60 Minutes in 2012 like its “rock”. “My father is my rock. This is where I learned everything about loyalty, reliability, being there day after day, no matter what… it’s always the family that counts, ”he said.
Keep his promises
It must be said that Christopher Jackman did everything for his son and his four siblings. When Hugh Jackman’s mother abandoned her family, when the future actor was only 8 years old, it was he who raised the siblings alone.
In a moving tribute posted on Father’s Day (US) last year, Hugh Jackman shared one of the Patriarch’s most valuable lessons. “My dad taught me to always keep my promises… Even if it turns out there is a better option or something that will benefit me more. Be true to your word, ”he wrote.
