Silly bit of gossip for you all – while filming The Prestige, Hugh Jackman managed to offend Bowie. According to Jackman in an interview with The Courier-Mail, he told Bowie that the first show he ever bought tickets to was one that Bowie did in Australia in 1981. He then admitted to Bowie that someone outside of the show offered to buy his tickets for $50 and Jackman took the offer. Amazingly, Jackman asked Bowie to sing him a few songs and Bowie refused. Wonder why. Jackman has a reputation for being a nice guy, so I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt here. Maybe he was so awe-struck at being in the presence of a living legend that he took his foot and stuck it directly in his mouth.
