Wolverine actor Hugh Jackman playfully told a story he thought the legendary singer Whitney Houston’s 1992 hit song ‘I Will Always Love You’ was about him.
Speaking in an Instagram video, the 52-year-old actor sounded confident that the song was about him, but everyone knew Jackman was joking about it. Jackman said:
“By the way, listen to the very last lyric of ‘I Will Always Love You’ by Whitney Houston. She actually says Hugh, I promise you. The very last, it is Hugh.
Well, I made myself believe that when I was 15.”
In the video, Hugh Jackman bursts into laughter after singing the song’s first chorus and makes a hilarious video that lets fans listen to the lyrics while also trying to prove how this song is all about him.
Here’s the caption:
“I told my younger self that Whitney Houston was singing to me. I might still believe it. I love you @whitneyhouston #iwillalwaysloveyou”
Last year, Hugh Jackman spoke to Anne Hathaway about his final appearance as Wolverine in Logan movie, which was released in 2017 during a recent conversation on Variety‘s Actors on Actors issue.
Jackman started his words by saying that he feels very blessed to have a Wolverine character and it was one of the most perfect lines written for the character’s death. He said:
“I did nine movies, but a couple were cameo-ish sort of things. Really, seven movies. I learned so much over those years. I feel so blessed to have the part, and I’m taking on a character that’s so beloved to so many. I’ll commit to that every day of the week, right? I’ll give 110%.
The last scene of ‘Logan,’ for example, where my character is dying, I think one of the most beautiful lines written for the character, which is, ‘Ah, so this is what it feels like.’”
“There were so many crossovers by the end because I’d played it for so long. I knew it was going to be my last one way before we wrote it. I made that decision. There was a weight of expectation that I’d been carrying.”
