Hugh Jackman raises USD 1.85m during benefit concert on birthday
Hugh Jackman raised 1.85 million dollars for Motion Picture and Television Fund in a benefit concert, called 'One Night Only', on his 45th birthday.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the ‘Wolverine’ star, who was backed by a 17-piece orchestra, sang, danced and told stories about his life to an audience of 4,500 people at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
After the two-and-a-half-hour show ended, Jackman said that the concert was probably the most narcissistic way to spend his birthday as he chose to sing his favorite songs and only talked about his life.
The Handsome hunk also auctioned off an electric Fiat, a pair of Wolverine claws and two sweaty undershirts, which sold for 11,000 dollars each, he wore during the gig.
