Jackman Says Sorry To Scott
Hollywood star Hugh Jackman felt so guilty about taking Dougray Scott's role as Wolverine in the first X-Men film, he apologised to the Scottish actor. Jackman, who accepted the part of Wolverine after Scott pulled out due to his filming overlap with MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE II, was catapulted to fame as a result of the role and went on to play Wolverine again in X2 and the forthcoming second sequel X-MEN: THE LAST STAND. And the Australian hunk was relieved that Scott didn't hold it against him. Jackman tells British magazine Hotdog, "I didn't quite have the guts to say thank you, I kind of apologised to him. "I spoke to him later and I said, 'Well I'm sorry, I don't know what else to say,' and he said, 'Ah, that's Hollywood, these things happen.'"
