Hugh Jackman Gets Bloody Eye During Oprah Stunt In Australia

After performing his own stunts on mega-action flicks like X-Men, Wolverine, and Van Helsing, it's really too bad a special effect for the Oprah Winfrey show banged him up! At least it was for the Australian Outback Special!

Aussie native Hugh Jackman decided to perform a little zip-lining stunt as part of the Oprah Australia special, which seemed like a good idea at the time, until Jackman forgot to pull the brake! Whoops!

The whole thing was caught on live TV from the Sydney Opera House to the Oprah stage which sounds safe, but with all the light rigging set-up for the show, Jackman crashed right into it, leaving his eye bloody and black. Paramedics rushed to stitch him up right then and there. We hope she keeps that in!

Fortunately for Hugh Jackman, the show must go on! The action star had a positive attitude about the fiasco; he told Oprah: "That was so much fun, until the end. I came down waving to everyone, looking over Sydney Harbor, saw my dad, the kids and you [Winfrey], went to pull the brake and then boing." Lawsuit! ... Kidding!

Jackman was given a glass of one of Aussie's best and most expensive red wines to calm himself down, which definitely helped because he bounced right back into a his lesson on eating Vegemite. Even with a stitched-up black eye, Jackman prepared the black yeast breakfast spread right on a biscuit for the queen of talk, who said she "liked it."
