Hugh Jackman
Contest Directions: Australian actor Hugh Jackman celebrated his 40th birthday yesterday. In Hollywood Jackman is mostly known for his roles in Van Helsing and X-Men. My personal favorite of Jackman's acting was his recent role in "The Prestige". We think 40 is a wonderful age for Jackman's acting career and wish him many new roles and his first Academy Award in the near future! Happy 40th Birthday, Hugh!
To celebrate the 40th birthday of Hugh Jackman, photoshop him any way you wish. Some examples are: show what other movies he could have played in, design a poster for any of his sequel movies, merge Jackman with other celebrities, show how Hugh will look in his old age, etc. These are just some ideas.
