Hugh Jackman (54) sold his hat on Broadway from the stage on Saturday. It wasn’t just anyone making the highest bid.
– One hundred thousand, Nicole Kidman (55 years old) shouted in the hall, which means 100 thousand dollars, that is, about a million kroner.
By that time, several other people in the hall had already tried their hand at bidding in hopes of getting the hat Jackman wore in the production of “Music Man”.
Videos are circulating on social media, and there a woman’s voice is heard screaming from behind in a theater hall in New York.
The others soon realize that the voice belongs to another famous person.
It’s Nicole Kidman! It’s Nicole Kidman! My God! Enthusiasts shout to the audience members, as Jackman stands wide-eyed on the stage.
Kidman then rises from her seat and steps onto the stage. There Jackman kneels down and gives her a warm hug.
Proceeds benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
