Jackman back to the Big Apple


Hugh Jackman and Deborra-lee Furness are planning to move the family to New York after X-Men Origins: Wolverine wraps in June.

We've loved having the A-listers home and their class and down-to-earth attitude will be sorely missed. Australia's loss is America's gain.

Last week Furness jumped on a plane with seven-year-old Oscar to spend two weeks in the Big Apple looking for schools.

She told S that it is a difficult process over there, with IQ tests for her son and gruelling rounds of interviews for the parents.

Somewhat unlike Sydney, where Oscar chose his school because it had a great art department and the chicks were cute (sounds like Oscar is developing his dad's way with the ladies).

Furness said that, though she will miss Sydney, a big part of her heart is in New York and she's excited about going back to see her girlfriends and visiting her old stomping grounds.

Jackman is halfway through shooting the latest Wolverine flick and is really enjoying his fourth time putting the claws on.

But even superheroes can't beat a dodgy prawn: Jackman got a mild case of food poisoning which halted film production for a day. The film is due to wrap in June but Jackman might stay a little longer for Australian publicity commitments.

We'll take every day we can get!
