It seems like Hugh Jackman is a superhero in real life too!
Zac Efron, in recent interview with MTV revealed that Jackman saved him from a burning set that got too out of control for their upcoming feature, ‘The Greatest Showman,’ reports The Hollywood Reporter.
The 29-year-old-actor said, “It started to get late, and some of the pyrotechnics got a little bit too hot. We burst out of the building. It looked great on camera. We didn’t know it [during the stunt], but it was pretty intense. I watched playback, and he saved me from a burning building. It later exploded that night. It was a set, but it later burned down.”
The ‘Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising’ star jokingly said that “it’s every girl’s dream” to get saved by Hugh Jackman.
He added, “Hugh Jackman saving you from a burning building? It’s every girl’s dream.”
‘The Greatest Showman’ focuses P.T. Barnum, a renowned showman, founder of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.
On a related note, Zac Efron will be next seen in Seth Gordon’s ‘Baywatch,’ alongside Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Priyanka Chopra.
