“You may remember me from such things as PEOPLE magazine’s 2010 Sexiest Man Alive, or the 12th best DC Comics movie Green Lantern,” Jackman said. “Who would have thought just three years after getting a star on Canada’s Walk of Fame, I would be getting a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame?”
“How could a guy who failed his high school drama class be this talented?” he continued. “I have no answer for that. But to quote my favourite actor in the world, the great Australian Hugh Jackman — who, by the way, was PEOPLE’s Sexiest Man Alive way before me — Americans are the most generous country on the planet.”
Jackman concluded: “So, thank you, America. And feel free to urinate on my section of the sidewalk.”
