Hugh Jackman Accosted By Fanatic While At The Gym

Hugh Jackman It seems the star of the popular X-Men movies, Hugh Jackman, was attacked while pumping iron at his local gym on Saturday morning. Luckily, instead of fighting off Sabretooth or Magneto, the attacker was a crazed fan. The weapon of choice: an electric razor.

Katherine Thurston approached Jackman at his gym, allegedly professed her love for him and threw her razor at him before running out of the complex. Thurston was caught shortly thereafter by local police, and arrested. Jackman revealed later that Thurston has been stalking him and his family for some time now, suggesting that her arrest may be in her best interest. He tells local TV news network 1010 WINS, "Here's a woman who obviously needs help, so I just hope she gets the help she needs."

Thurston has had no assault charges leveled against her, instead being charged with fourth-degree stalking. We are just happy to know that the Les Miserables star and his family are safe and sound. We can only hope that the disturbed stalker gets the help and attention she so desperately needs.
Besides, what did Wolverine himself need to be so afraid of? What can an electric razor do to the man with adamantium claws? You can check out Jackman and his claws, in the newest trailer for the upcoming X-Men spin-off, The Wolverine, below.
