While people world over look up to Australian actor Hugh Jackman as an idol and role model, it seems his source of inspiration falls a little closer to home.

The 46-year-old has uploaded a simple image standing alongside his father on Instagram

Strong support from family has always been a cornerstone to Jackman’s success, revealing just how important in an interview with 60 minutes in 2012. 

The Wolverine actor broke down in the segment, when discussing life without his mother Grace who left his father and siblings and moved overseras. 

“My father is my rock. It’s where I learned everything about loyalty, dependability, being there day in, day out, no matter what,” Jackman said.

“It’s always about the family.”


This isn’t the first time Jackman has snuggled up for a happy snap with his father on Instagram, posting a similar pic in the holiday season, signing off with ‘my hero’. 

Happiness is waking up on Christmas morning and seeing my Dad. My hero.
