Hugh Jackman is multi-talented, but he is also a man of deep faith. In this weekend’s Sunday supplement magazine ‘Parade’ he reveals just how faithful he is.
‘I’m a Christian. I used to go to different evangelists’ [revival] tents all the time. When I was about 13, I had a weird premonition that I was going to be onstage, like the preachers I saw, There are things driving me that aren’t all healthy—[needing] approval and respect to fill some hole who-knows-where in me. Am I worthy? All those fears. Through acting, I’m able to find a level of bliss and peace and calm and joy. And it feels natural. Before I go onstage every night, I pause and dedicate the performance to God, in the sense of ‘Allow me to surrender.‘
His faith belief will soon hit the theaters. Warner Brothers’ new film Apostle Paul, is being developed at the studio for Hugh Jackman to star in the role as the Jewish man of God (also known as Saul of Tarsus) who crossed over to speak to the Romans and preach the word.
