Actor Hugh Jackman spills all about his accident


Hugh Jackman has revealed that he once wet himself on stage.

The Aussie actor had been trying to combat dehydration by drinking lots of water before a Broadway performance in the 90s – but it proved to be to his peril. 

‘In the middle of a song, I discovered that the muscles you use to hold on are the ones that you need to release to sing,’ he says.

Ever the professional, Hugh, 42, continued in his role as Gaston in Beauty And The Beast as if nothing was happening.

‘The show has to go on,’ he tells the Daily Star. ‘So I peed in my pants, in red tights on stage.’
