Hugh Jackman Was Caught Totally Off Guard With A Guinness World Record Certificate

Hugh Jackman is a talented man, with many accolades to his name. He's won a Tony Award, hosted the Tony Awards, won an Emmy for hosting the Tony Awards, and, oh yeah, he's also Wolverine.


Well, he was Wolverine, before he decided to hang up the non-existent yellow spandex. He had played the character for so long, it's difficult to state how important he is to the role.

So is it any surprise to learn that Jackman actually has a Guinness World Record for playing Logan?




During an interview on the British show This Morning, Jackman was surprised by Guinness World Records with an award. Craig Glenday, the editor-in-chief of the publication, presented the award himself.

Jackman shares the award with Sir Patrick Stewart, who played Professor Charles Xavier. They both premiered the characters in 2000's X-Men and chose to end their respective runs with 2017's Logan.

This means they've been these characters on screen for a continuous 16 years 228 days.





Sir Patrick Stewart joined in on the well-earned praise.


The interviewer, Alison Hammond, then surprised Jackman further with an explosion of confetti and showgirls.

Jackman said,

"This is the highlight of my life. I've made it. This is why I got into showbiz."

As jokey as that statement sounds, it's closer to truth than you think. Getting into the Guinness Book of Records was a lifelong goal for the star.

"When I was a kid, I wanted to be in the Guinness Book of Records. When I was a kid, the Guinness Book of Records was it."

When he and his brother were kids, they'd concoct plans to win a record. They even considered trying to stay up for 54 hours to play the longest game of badminton.

We have questions.




Hugh will likely be holding onto that record for a while. Even with as long as the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been going, the first film only debuted in 2008. Not to mention, it seems like most of the actors from that movie are beginning to step down from their roles.

Though for any current Marvel actors who want to take the record, they know exactly how long they have to beat. Jackman has made it clear he won't be reprising the role again.

Speaking on stepping down for good, he said,

"It's a bit like you're at the greatest party you've ever been at, you've been dancing for an hour and a half, and then you're just like 'It's time, ok. If I stay any longer, it's gonna get ugly.' It's like, it's time."

Love or money?

An age old question.

Ideally, you wouldn't have to decide between the two.

In a perfect world, you would be able to find the true love of your life and be incredibly wealthy all at once.

But, as the saying goes, you can't have everything.

Though if faced with having to choose between the two, people might have a different idea of what the obvious answer would be.

Redditor lulinghayaw was curious how people would decide when faced with this decision, leading them to ask:

"Genuine, true love or 5 million dollars? Why?"

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"
