Hugh Jackman's daughter finds his Broadway show "boring".

The 43-year-old actor is currently starring in his one man show, 'Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway', in New York's prestigious theatre district and while his 11-year-old son Oscar enjoyed the production on a recently family visit, six-year-old Ava was less than impressed.

Hugh - who is married to Deborra-Lee Furness - said: "About a week ago [my kids] came on a Sunday matinee. I said, 'Guys, look, you can be honest with me. Do you like the show?'

"My son Oscar says, 'I really like it.' I was touched. My daughter said, 'I find it a little boring.' "

During part of the show, the 'Real Steel' actor ventures into the audience to serenade his wife and Hugh admits it is the part where his daughter feels particularly uncomfortable.

He told TV talk show host Anderson Cooper: "My daughter, oh my God. I sing a song for my wife in the show and sometimes I go out to the crowd.

"My daughter literally hides under the seat in front. She dies."

Hugh also revealed he is a big fan of parenting show 'Supernanny' and has found the tips and techniques used by host Jo Frost very useful.

He said: "I'm one of those parents, I read every book. My son came out and apparently he hadn't read any of them, so we were really all at sea. Then we found that show and, I tell you, our daughter has a much easier ride."
