The Hollywood star wasn’t happy when Hugh Jackman’s best mate since kindergarten – Gus Worland – vomited in his trailer and he made the Aussie actor clean it up.
Worland recapped the whole story on KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O Show today and then he challenged listeners to call in and guess who the Hollywood star was.
The incident happened in the earlier days of Jackman’s career when Worland was visiting Jackman on a movie set. One of Jackman’s co-stars invited them both to have a drink in his “much bigger trailer”.
Worland said he walked into the trailer “… and it’s got a Cuban cigar in each corner with a cigar cutter … and there’s a tub of drinks and stuff.”
“We sit down and start having a conversation and I’m struggling to get the words out because I’m so excited that I’m in his company,” Worland said about Jackman’s co-star.
Worland’s nerves got the better of him and he said he was “drinking a little bit too quickly” and he found himself not feeling well, he said on the radio show.
“Jacko’s looking at me going: ‘Are you OK, mate?’ I said, ‘I’m fine, I’m fine.”
But he wasn’t. He added: “I’m smoking this cigar, I’m drinking these drinks and I’m hammered within an hour. I just go, ‘Oh no, I can’t hold this.’ I tried to shimmy out of the horseshoe [table] set up … which is a difficult thing to do … and I don’t quite get to the door of the trailer and I throw up everywhere.”
Worland said that Jackman found it fairly funny but the other celebrity didn’t have the same sense of humour about the situation and he told Jackman he’d have to clean the whole thing up.
“That takes Jacko about 20 minutes,” Worland recalled.
Kyle Sandilands asked Worland: “He got Hugh Jackman to mop up your chunder?”
“Yeah,” Worland said.
So, who was the Hollywood A-lister who wasn’t impressed?
Eventually a listener called through with the right answer – it was John Travolta and it was when Travolta and Jackman were filming Swordfish.
Worland was on the Kyle and Jackie O Show to promote a new initiative for his Gotcha4Life Foundation called the ‘Mind Your Mate’ campaign.
“I want everyone to write down a list of all the people in their life that they love and actually go to our website gotcha4life.org and pledge your mateship to them,” Worland said. “And I can send you some tips and tricks to make sure your relationship is stronger than ever before.”
Gotcha4Life is an Australian mental fitness charity which Worland set up which takes action to engage, educate and empower people to improve their mental health and end suicide.
