Hugh Jackman has always been regarded as one of the nicest guys in Hollywood, and he proved how cool he was once again at the New York premiere of X-Men: Days Of Future Past when ET's Rocsi Diaz made one lucky fan's dream come true by bringing her on the red carpet to meet the handsome star.
The emotional fan could barely speak, she was so excited, and meeting the X-Men star actually brought tears to her eyes. But she fought back those tears of joy and snapped a selfie with Wolverine.
Jackman gave the young fan a hug after taking the pic and even signed a poster for her, giving her a life-long memory and something awesome to brag about to her friends.
Jackman admitted to Rocsi that not all kids, including his own son, are quite so star stuck by his Wolverine persona.
"[To my son] I am not cool," Jackman said, laughing. "A friend of his came over and was talking about me and he goes, 'I just want to be clear. My dad is nothing like Wolverine, alright?'"
X-Men: Days Of Future Past marks the seventh time Jackman has played Wolverine, including his brief but memorable cameo in X-Men: First Class. It is also the first X-Men movie Jackman has worked on with director Bryan Singer since 2003's X2: X-Men United.
Check out the great video for more from Jackman, including his loving, supportive shout-out to Halle Berry, who couldn't be at the premiere because she was participating in the Revlon Run/Walk For Women event in Los Angeles.
