This week, one Australian reporter got the biggest, and best, surprise that she's probably ever had in her entire career. And it all had something to do with arguably one of the most fantastics specimens of human out there - Hugh Jackman.

What happened?

Well, when Jessica Turner of Channel Ten News was reporting outside the Children's Hospital in Sydney, she was photobomb by the X-Men actor himself!

As she was giving the report about the 46-year-old Hugh and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness visiting the hospital, the actor crept up on her as he was leaving the premises.

As he ran out of sight, he muttered "Sorry!" as the news reporter admitted that that was "the best kind of photobomb, Hugh."

The fantastic moment only lasted about two seconds, but here it is for your own glorious viewing pleasure:


"Wolverine practically had his arms around me!"

Later writing on her blog, Jessica wrote:

"I kind of heard someone yelling behind me, but like all reporters, I'm practiced at blocking out any background craziness and staying focused, so I carried on. Until the Wolverine practically had his arms around me! 'Photobomb!' Hugh yelled. I was so shocked, I couldn't believe this mega-star just punked me! I couldn't help but laugh."

Hugh was at the hospital to launch the Fight Cancer Foundation's 'Back on Track' program, an initiative focusing on helping sick children stay on top of their schoolwork. During his time there, he posted this image onto his Instagram:

Oh Hugh, you really are the best!
