He’s one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, who is about to embark on a global tour of his concert spectacular The Man. The Music. The Show.

But Hugh Jackman was straight down to business while promoting his political thriller The Front Runner in Tokyo on Monday.

The 50-year-old actor looked dapper in a grey suit as he greeted the awaiting media pack at the event, where his film will be launched.

Hugh was clearly in good spirits as he waved to the country’s media pack and gave a megawatt smile while standing next to a subtitled poster of the film.

The actor looked dashing in a tailored grey blazer which featured a multi-coloured pocket square along with a pair of form-fitting trousers.

The Tony Award-winning actor gave the outfit a relaxed feel by wearing a black t-shirt with the slim fit suit which he wore buttoned up.

Hugh is in the country to promote his film The Front Runner, a political thriller which follows Colorado senator Gary Hart whose affair sidelined his presidential run. domino99

The actor was obviously thrilled to be in the country, with Hugh making a video of himself addressing his Japanese fans on Instagram.

‘I’m very, very excited! I’m sitting in the airport lounge, ready to come to Japan, one of my favourite places in the world. I love you all, can’t wait to see you.’

The Australian actor previously admitted to The Sunday Telegraph he was nervous to meet the real Gary Hart before playing the role.

‘I’ve never played anyone alive before so I was pretty nervous about it. I have to admit. Meeting Gary was nerve-racking,’ he said.

‘Part of me was very nervous to play him because this was a very difficult time in his life,’ Hugh added.

He explained that he feared the movie may bring back painful memories for the senator: ‘I was worried what it might be like for him to publicly relive it,’ he said.
