Hugh Jackman Honors Late Fan Who Painted Wolverine Image With Just His Mouth
Hugh Jackman took to Instagram to pay tribute to a late fan.
Hugh Jackman loves engaging with his fans, but now his supporters are cheering him on more than ever.
Jackman took to Instagram to tell the story of an encounter he had with a late fan’s sibling. The actor met Marie Lozano from the Philippines who said her brother, Jeffrey, passed away two years ago. Jeffrey had Down Syndrome and loved Wolverine.
Marie told the X-Men actor how her brother had painted a picture of Jackman’s most famous character - using just his mouth. When Jeffrey lost use of his hands, he painted by putting a paintbrush in his mouth, she explained.
The actor wrote: “I accept this gift in Jeffrey’s honor. May his spirit live on.”
The near thousand comments on Jackman’s page thanked him for his kindness.
“So sweet of you. Thank@thehughjackman for your kindness. Two thumbs up for a very nice person like you,” was one comment.
Another was: “I love you even more now with this gesture.. jeffrey is smiling in heaven.”
Before his passing, Jeffrey shared his Wolverine portrait on Instagram:
