Hugh Jackman rode a zip line from the top of the Sydney Opera House down to the stage where Oprah Winfrey was filming one of her Australia shows today, but then instead of stopping, he crashed into a lighting rig which broke and sent a small piece of glass into his eye. “Hey you’re payin for that,” Oprah probably thought to herself. “What am I, made out of lighting rigs?”
Sky News says…
Jackman flipped 90 degrees on impact and damaged a spotlight, then hung from the gantry for several seconds before descending to the stage.
‘It’s a little hot up here,’ were Jackman’s first words.
‘I’m not hundred per cent, I’ve hurt my eye.’
Winfrey called for an ice-pack and paramedics rushed to the stage to treat Jackman for his injury as a break was ordered in the filming of the program.
Maybe Jackman had an accident because people aren’t supposed to be zip lining into rooms. I know he’s a big action star, but this had disaster written all over it. And I’m no pansy. In fact I’m a complete badass. I even have a cobra tattoo on the top of my foot, because my kicks are like the sting of the mighty cobra.
