Hugh Jackman missed Tony Blair meeting due to illnessApril 25th, 2009 - 11:38 am ICT by ANI
London, Apr 25 (ANI): Hugh Jackman once missed a rare chance to meet former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, because he was too busy throwing up behind the stage.
The ex-PM made a special trip to see a show of the 1998 London production of musical ‘Oklahoma!’ at the National Theatre, starring the ‘Australia’ star.
But the actor had been struck down with a migraine and was running off the stage to vomit through the entire performance.
The illness kept the actor confined to the bathroom even when the ex-Labour party chief came to meet the crew after the show.
“I remember having a migraine when Tony Blair came to see ‘Oklahoma!’” The Daily Express quoted Jackman as telling Britain’s FHM magazine.
“I was going into the wings and throwing up whenever I was off stage, and afterwards Tony Blair came backstage to meet the cast, and of course I was throwing up.” (ANI)
