Hugh: “What Are Ya – A Poof?”

That’s what one of Hugh Jackman‘s older brothers asked him when little Hugh, at age 10, wanted to sign up for dance class. Jackman was scared off from taking dance for years because of the opprobrium. And he’s gone on to become one of the world’s most entertaining hoofers, so his brother, who apologized when Hugh was 18, REALLY looks like the bearer of bad advice. I’d like to think that, in the age of “Dancing with the Stars,” we’ve made progress since then. But I’m sure there are still millions of little boys around the world who’d like to sing and dance but whose family members remain mired in the dark ages.
