Yup, that’s about all that needs to be said about this. OH! And Hugh Jackman was dressed up as Gaston from Beauty and the Beast, because all that show was really missing was a scene where a Tom of Finland-esque man urinates on himself. Aaaaaaaaaand scene. From Us Weekly:
“The first show I ever did, singing and dancing, was Beauty and the Beast. I was playing Gaston,” Jackman, 42, tells Rachael Ray in an interview airing Friday. “Gaston has red tights, knee high boots, and it’s very physical. I had headaches everyday for two months. I went to an astropath [psychic] and he said ‘Well, you’re dehydrated.’ So of course [following his advice] I had four liters of water,” says Jackman of his 1996 theater days in Melbourne, Australia. “I go down to the stage, getting ready for my first number…and I’m like I really need to go again. [The routine is] the most cardiovascular song I’ve ever done: literally I’m picking up Belle and as I pick her up, I stopped singing and right in that moment I realized the muscles you need to release in order to sing are the ones you do not want to release if you need to go,” the actor tells Ray.
The weird thing is, I’m not really into watersports, but hell if Hugh isn’t hot enough to make me a convert. Let’s face it: if Wolverine came into your bedroom and told you that you’d be getting into Norwegian coffee enema play or something, then you better believe you’re going to make a beeline for Starbucks.
