Hugh Jackman Tops Sexiest Sci-Fi Star Poll
Jackman plays mutant superhero Wolverine in the X-Men
franchise, and fans have voted him their favourite sci-fi star in a poll by TV
In the female category, Sarah Michelle Gellar was voted
in first place for playing Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Star Trek actress Jeri
Ryan came second.
The male runners-up were former Doctor Who star Tennant,
who came second, while British actor John Barrowman landed third place for his
role in Torchwood. Johnny Depp came fourth for his movie Edward Scissorhands,
while Harrison Ford rounded out the top five for his portrayal of Han Solo in
the Star Wars films.
It has to be said though that Hugh Jackman is as
beautiful on the inside as he is on the outside. The kind-hearted star has
urged fans to dig deep and donate to a fund for Africans caught up in the
current famine crisis.
Hugh and his wife Deborra-Lee Furness have been left
horrified by news of the humanitarian crisis hitting countries including Kenya
and Ethiopia. The couple, who are ambassadors for World Vision Australia, have
filmed a video appeal calling for relief effort donations.
In the clip, Jackman says, "World Vision are
supporting long-term programmes such as drought tolerant crops, help for
herders' animals and families to diversify their income source so that drought
doesn't leave them without an income. World Vision urgently needs your help to
assist those in need."
Furness adds, "Children are the most vulnerable in
times of crisis like this and in the worst hit areas of Ethiopia, Kenya and
Somalia nearly half a million young people are at risk of malnutrition. Hugh
and I have been in Ethiopia, and we've seen first-hand the World Vision staff
who work on the ground. They're at the crisis points now providing lifesaving
food and water."
