In a new interview, Australian actor Hugh Jackman has looked back on his time playing Peter Allen on Broadway – and admitted he was sometimes “an a-hole” to the show’s famous audience members.

Jackman talked about his famous stay in the The Boy from Oz as part of a new career interview Diversity. He played the iconic Australian entertainer Allen in the hit Broadway musical in 2003 and 2004.

“I had the most fun playing Peter Allen,” Jackman said Diversityreflecting on one particular moment of the show – an entirely ad-libbed scene in the second act where he dragged unsuspecting audience members onto the stage and “roasted” them.

“Sometimes I was a fool. I brought up Barbara Walters and Matt Damon and made Matt Damon give Barbara Walters a lap dance, which turned into me giving Matt Damon a lap dance. And he didn’t hit me,” he said.

One such “hole” moment happened in front of a live worldwide television audience when Jackman performed as Allen at the 2004 Tony Awards.

In the middle of his song and dance number, he looked out into the audience and headed straight for Sarah Jessica Parker, who was sitting front and center.

“Several nervous people suddenly appeared in the front row. I feel a little Sex in the big cityhi sarah jessica!”

After making a joke about her absent husband Matthew Broderick, Jackman brought a visibly distraught Parker on stage and had her dance next to him, encouraging her to wave her arms above her head.

There was one very obvious problem: Parker wasn’t dressed for dancing, wearing a tight, strapless dress that threatened to cause a wardrobe malfunction with every move she made.

She tried to play along, but her movements did not please Jackman.

“I’m afraid my top (takes off) is the wrong mesh,” she quipped, before he finally ushered the relieved star off the stage.

“I really felt for her that night,” Jackman said diversity, 18 years later.

“As soon as she got on stage, I knew those tits were about to come out.”

“I felt him. I knew that if he could have talked to me, he would have said, “You have to go to work! What are you talking about?” I could feel his presence on the set.”
