Hugh Jackman opens up about his childhood abandoment

Everyone’s favorite Aussie, Hugh Jackman, is opening up about his childhood.

In a recent interview with Australian Women’s Weekly, Hugh discussed his mother’s role in his childhood. “One of the main things I remember is that horrible feeling that people were talking about you and looking at you because it was odd for the mother to leave,” Jackman told the magazine. He was just 8 years old when his mother left Australia and headed for the UK.

After his parents divorced, his sisters, Zoe and Sonia, moved to England to live with their mother while Hugh and his brothers, Ralph and Ian, remained in Sydney, Australia, with their father, Chris. Jackman went onto say that he never questioned his mother’s love for him. “The thing I never felt – and I know this might sound strange – I never felt that my mum didn’t love me,” he explained.

Hugh added that he was able to forgive his mother after he became a parent himself.
