Hugh Jackman for Jezebel Magazine October 2013

On celebrity kids getting extra attention: “It’s difficult, because in our line of work, it’s not just attention—they’re sometimes treated differently than other kids. Like being given gifts, which is slightly warped. Navigating that is probably one of the most difficult things to do as a parent.”

On taking the role in Prisoners: “I thought it was a very suspenseful thriller, but also a great drama—something I hadn’t played before, that kind of intensity, that certain father-child relationship. You actually don’t know how you’re going to react in that kind of a situation. Number one priority as a parent is to protect your child. Being out of control and not being able to do that, and feeling helpless, is really devastating; and as a parent, even if you disagree, you understand. Obviously, it’s seen very differently in the eyes of the law, but the thing I’m most interested in exploring is how people respond in dramatic situations they’re not prepared for.”

On theater vs. film: “For many years, stage was my favorite, and if you were to ask me my highlights as an actor, most of them would be onstage. But in the last two or three years – maybe it’s the opportunities I’ve had, or just where I’m at in my life – I’ve been enjoying film just as much. I was brought up in the theater, so I felt very at home on the stage, but it takes a little while to feel that same level of comfort on a sound stage.”
