Hugh Jackman, born and raised in Sydney

When you hear about Hugh Jackman's childhood, you can't help but tear up. The youngest of five, Hugh was born in Sydney on October 12, 1968 (a Libra!). When he was eight years old, his mother left with his two sisters. He and his two brothers were raised by his father. Despite the resulting anger and the sadness, Jackman excelled in everything he applied himself to. While at Knox Grammar School, he starred in the school production of My Fair Lady and became school captain the following year. You know what happened later!
