Hugh Jackman have taught Real Men Don’t Cry. The Australian actor from The Prestige and Real Steel was taught as a young boy this, but now as he has grown into man he realizes it is brave to show is emotions. The forty four year old, born in Sydney, Australia, believes that the combination of
Living in Australia where guys are encouraged to be tough and his father’s reserved English nature imprinted on him that it is a sign of weakness to for a guy to show his emotions.
He told Cosmopolitan magazine: “Growing up in Australia, my opinion of masculinity is that you don’t show your feelings. A real man doesn’t cry. My father is classic English – emotionally shut down – although in the past 10 years, he seems to have cried at every family reunion.”
Although he was raised this way, he does insist that he is conformable in showing his feelings and it takes a real man to be able to cry and speak about his feelings.
He is married to fifty seven year old Deborra Lee Furness and they have two children together, Oscar and Ava was inspired by the open nature of Italian men when he visited the European country.
“The real measure of a man is to be you. It’s OK to show emotion. After traveling to Italy I’ve learnt that I prefer their way. There, men can show emotion; they can be affectionate and still be masculine.”
