Hugh Jackman’s daughter Ava is starting early with the body art.
The Wolverine star’s eight-year-old showed off an inking on her arm as she scooted about New York with her father.
And showing her support for her film star father, the eight-year-old had the words Wolverine – the name of his recent hit film inked on her – temporarily no doubt.
And she’s clearly proud of her father who as well as being one of Hollywood’s most in demand actors – is a doting father too.
Hugh was seen spending time with Ava after picking up from school after her first day back.
The actor and a mother of one of Ava’s classmates stopped off at an ice cream shop before heading to the park so the children could play.
He told ITV’s Lorraine that Ava used to get pretty upset when she saw her daddy getting hurt on the big screen.
The 44-year-old has played the superhero for 13 years since the very first X-Men film in 2000, and now that his little girl has seen her dad in action Hugh reveals she hasn’t exactly been impressed.
‘My daughter has seen them [the ‘X-Men films] now on TV. When the last one came out she was five or six and she used to get really upset when I was on screen and in danger… because Wolverine can heal I’m constantly getting shot or stabbed.’
However, she appears to have got over the trauma now as he added to ITV’s Lorraine: ‘She would get really upset when she saw it in the trailer, and I shielded her from that and now she loves it.”
Hugh, 44, was on Daddy duty in New York after weeks of promotional work for box office hit Wolverine.
But a new film role is garnering praise as the actor is also being touted for his second Oscar nomination in two years for nailbiting thriller Prisoners.
Jackman goes against his action-man type to play a father bent on vengeance.
Early viewings have won the star praise and one critic called Jackman’s performance as a ‘career best’ and the film, which also stars Jake Gyllenhaal, ‘a first-class motion picture experience unlike any other that I, for one, have experienced in a long time.’
According to Variety, Jackman expressed initial reservations about taking on the role as an angry father trying to punish the suspected abductor (played by Paul Dano) of his daughter and another girl.
Hugh’s latest film Wolverine follows X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which was released in 2009 and despite dividing critics still made an impressive $374 million at the worldwide box office.
The next installment of the franchise will be X Men: Days of Future Past, which will be released next year.
Hugh has described Wolverine as a ‘career defining role’ saying: ‘It may be the strongest of all the roles I’ve played.’
