Actor Hugh Jackman recently sat down with Oprah to talk about his 17-year marriage with wife, Wolverine's training regimen and what he's most afraid of. Jackman sought out motivational speaker Tony Robbins before filming musical "Les Miserables," revealing that he was a "very fearful kid."
"I made myself get over those fears," he said. "If I feel frightened of it, I have to go in and attack it."
His most recent fear? "Not being my best when it mattered," referring to his role of Jean Valjean in the 2012 production of "Les Miserables."
When speaking with Robbins, Jackman learned that "You can't get rid of those nerves, and they appear for a reason. That fear drives you, and without that fear, you would not be here today." He went on to win a Golden Globe for his performance, and was nominated for an Academy Award for best actor.
