Katherine Thurston's shaver was allegedly filled with her own pubic hair

Hugh Jackman got a fright when an obsessive fan threw an electric razor at him as he headed into a gym in New York last weekend.

Katherine Thurston allegedly screamed: ‘I love you!’ at the actor, 44, before reaching into her pants to get the shaver, which is believed to have been filled with her pubic hair.

Thurston was arrested after gym staff called the police and she later appeared in court charged with menacing, stalking, harassment, trespassing and possessing a weapon.

Last night, she was being held on £10,000 bail.

The 47-year-old Californian is first thought to have approached Hugh last year at a concert in San Francisco.

She’s also said to have confronted his wife Deborra-Lee Furness at their daughter Ava‘s school in March to tell her she was going to ‘marry her husband’.

Thurston apparently told officers that she started emailing Hugh because she was ‘very impressed with X-Men 2‘ and threw the razor at him because she ‘hated him having those whiskers’ to play Wolverine.

Hugh said yesterday that he felt relieved he was only attacked by trimmers because he was worried blonde Thurston may pull out a knife or gun.

‘It was obviously frightening,’ said Hugh.

‘For me, my main concern is for my family. I hope the woman gets the help she needs.’
