Australian actor and producer, Hugh Jackman will expand his business empire to include Chocolate, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The X-Men and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness will be launching their new fair trade fair company, Laughing Man in New York City last October 11, 2012. The couple is also expanding their line towards organic and kosher chocolates.
He tells Cnn,
“Each of these companies that we create, 100 per cent of the profits go to charities.
”It’s first and foremost about creating good products that people really want. Not that they feel like they should want it, but because they genuinely want it. And then being able to create jobs and support entrepreneurialism. That’s what inspired me, and I was waiting for the right opportunity.”
Jackman is excited to finally be specializing in sweet treats, adding,
“I eat a little bit of dark chocolate every day – I’d definitely say that it makes you feel good.”
