The actor who plays the role of Wolverine in ‘X-Men’ told the New York Post that it was obviously frightening.

According to sources, however, its not the first time that Thurston’s has stalked Jackman, she once showed up at the West Village home that he shares with actress wife Deborra-Lee Furness.

Jackman told police that he has seen Thurston outside his 7-year-old daughter Ava’s elementary school in Manhattan, saying that for him his main concern is for his family and he hoped that the woman got the help that she needed.

He said that he was a little shaken when Thurston burst into his gym while he was working out and threw an electric razor that was filled with her pubic hair at him.

The source said that she was screaming “I love you!” as a staffer dragged her away from Jackman.
