Wolverine will live to fight, and look handsome, another day.

While filming an elaborate entrance onto the set of Oprah Winfrey's talk show this morning, Hugh Jackman zip-lined over the audience and crashed into a lighting rod suspended above the stage.

Shooting was stopped as paramedics tended to the actor, but he quickly emerged, was handed a glass of red wine and joked with the crowd. Watch the stunt below:

"That was so much fun until the end," Jackman said. "I came down waving to everyone, looking over Sydney Harbor, saw my dad, the kids and you, went to pull the brake and then boing."

The movie star was one of many famous Australians on hand for the Oprah event Down Under. He was joined by Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban, Russell Crowe and the family of Steve Irwin.

Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman brought up a good question during the Spanish premiere of their film Australia: Wouldn't they make a much better Hollywood couple than Kidman and husband Keith Urban?

During the event in Madrid, Kidman walked the red carpet twice, once with hubby Urban and once with Jackman.

And, while Kidman looked very comfortable with her man, the rugged and extremely well-dressed Hugh Jackman stepped in to show us what a great Hollywood couple is supposed to look like:

Sorry, Zac Efron.

Move over, Chace Crawford.

Suck it, Matt Damon.

In an upset, Hugh Jackman has been named People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive.

The hunky actor is best known for his role as Wolverine in the X-Men franchise, though he's also widely admired for the sort of versatility that led to a starring role on Broadway in The Boy from Oz.

Do you think Hugh Jackman deserves to be named the Sexiest Man Alive?

You can't eat just one Pringle - and you can't just make one movie with Scarlett Johansson. Most of us are familiar with the former, while one famous actor is emphasizing the latter.

Hugh Jackman, who met Johansson while filiming the latest Woody Allen movie, Scoop, would love to make another film with the Reebok beauty. He'd prefer it to be a musical.

"She's just very funny, very quick and she's a pure delight. I have to say she's an amazing singer. We used to sing a lot off camera," Wolverine said.

He would know. Reportedly, the pair amused each other during down time by cranking out show tunes. Jackman has won a Tony Award for his role in The Boy From Oz.

"She's particularly amazing for a young girl, loves the old standards - Rodgers and Hammerstein, Rodgers and Hart, Ella Fitzgerald, Sinatra; that kind of era," Jackman said.

Such overwhelming musical props from such an established source should help Johannson feel better about her second place finisher as the world's best kisser. The Gossip would love to find out if that ranking is deserved, but can maybe look forward to a musical collaboration in the meantime.

"We also talked about doing a movie musical together. So hopefully that'll happen one day," added Jackman.
