Hugh Jackman lottery treat for 'Les Miserables' cast
Australian actor Hugh Jackman has treated the cast and crew of his upcoming film 'Les Miserables' to 250 pounds worth of lottery scratch cards.
The 43-year-old actor bought the lottery cards from a newsagent in Berkshire, England. "Hugh said he needed to go to the shops then came back with a wad of scratchcards and handed them out to everyone.
It's a nice gesture. No one won, however, -or if they did they're not saying," femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying. This is not the first time that the actor has turned to lottery to cheer his co-workers.
Last year, on the set of "Reel Steel", he made a weekly habit of purchasing 500 tickets for crew members. "It's my way of paying taxes. The very first film I did in America, I was embarrassed to say two months in that I didn't know half of the crew's names," Jackman said.
"So I thought that on a Friday afternoon I'll whip by and buy lottery tickets for everyone and hand them out. I say it's an Australian tradition, but it's not," he added.
