The 'X-Men' star is unharmed but described the incident as 'frightening'
A deranged Hugh Jackman fan reportedly threw a razor filled with pubic hair at the X-Men star while he was working out in New York over the weekend.
The alleged incident occurred at around 8am on Saturday morning (April 13) at a small gym in the city’s West Village. According to the New York Post, the woman managed to sneak past the gym’s receptionist before heading towards Jackman and reaching into the waistband of her khaki trousers. Crying and declaring her love for the actor, she then threw a used razor at Jackman, who was unharmed by the incident.
A woman, 47-year-old Kathleen Thurston, was arrested by police shortly afterwards and charged with stalking. Her listed address is apparently a local shelter for the mentally ill.
Speaking later to local radio station 1010 WINS, Jackman described the incident as “frightening” and said his “primary concern” is “obviously” for his family. He has reportedly seen the woman before outside their home and his daughter’s school.
The actor, 44, is about to begin shooting new X-Men movie Days of Future Past in Montreal, Canada. His spin-off film The Wolverine opens in cinemas on July 26 this year – scroll down and click ‘play’ to watch the trailer.
