CELEBRITY: Actor Hugh Jackman Starts A Lottery Tradition

When Australian actor Hugh Jackman was filming Real Steel in Michigan, USA last year, he started a tradition. He bought 500 lottery tickets for every member of the film crew, every week.

He explained, "It’s my way of paying taxes. The very first film I did in America, I was embarrassed to say two months in that I didn’t know half of the crew’s names."

The Wolf Man character said, "So I thought that on a Friday afternoon I’ll whip by and buy Lottery tickets for everyone and hand them out."

With his usual sense of humor he added, "I say it’s an Australian tradition, but it’s not."
