Actor Hugh Jackman was forced to run to his audition for Les Miserables after a thief stole the wheels off his bicycle in New York City.

The Oscar nominee peddled to his singing teacher Joan Lader's house for a last-minute warm up session and locked up his bike up outside, only to return 30 minutes later and find nothing but its frame.

He tells U.S. Tv host Jay Leno, "When I do any singing audition, I go to my singing teacher first, so I went to Joan Lader, and I had a half-hour singing lesson just to get warmed up. And she said, 'You should ride your bike to get your breath going,' so I ride my bike to 16th street and the audition is about 20 blocks down. And I remember pulling up in front of my singing teacher's building and I'm locking up the bike and you know when you just see someone a little dodgy, and they're looking at you and they know you know they're dodgy, and you're just looking? I'm doing the extra lock on my bike. I go into my singing lesson and I come back and the wheels have gone off my bike... I was like, 'No!'"

In a rush, Jackman picked up the bike and took off on foot, and he confesses he looked like an amateur by the time he arrived.

He explains, "Because you don't want to warm up and then be too cold for the audition, I left it with 15 minutes (to spare). So I come out, I've got the frame of my bike, I've got 20 blocks and 15 minutes to get there. I literally ran with my bike on my shoulder, can't put it in a cab, and I get to the thing (audition) and I run up the two flights of stairs and I'm like, 'Hugh Jackman... I'm ready.' I literally felt like I was straight out of drama school."
