One of my favorite actors, the delicious Hugh Jackman, meets a star of the sport I play (but am not going to play after this season is over...), Ronaldo! What does the shirt say above X-Men Origins? I can't figure it out! But still, the spicy Jackman makes my heart smile (to borrow a quote from Bridget... for the second time, I think)! Ice Bear approves of this.
SAO PAULO – The Wolverine has met a real-life superhero of Brazilian soccer.
Actor Hugh Jackman took time from promoting "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" to visit striker Ronaldo, who is showing Wolverine-like healing powers in his third comeback to competitive soccer.
Jackman attended a practice of the Corinthians club Tuesday and gave a movie shirt to Ronaldo. The three-time FIFA player of the year reciprocated with a team jersey bearing the letter X instead of a number.
Many thought Ronaldo was done after suffering the third serious knee injury of his career in February 2008.
But the 32-year-old has thrived since suiting up for Corinthians this year, scoring eight goals in 11 matches to lead the club to its 26th state title on Sunday.
Actor Hugh Jackman, right, gives a T-shirt promoting his movie to soccer player Ronaldo in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Tuesday, May 5, 2009. Jackman took some time from promoting 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine' in Brazil to visit striker Ronaldo, who is thriving in his third comeback to competitive football after serious knee injuries. The shirt reads in Portuguese 'I am indestructible!'
Oh, I figured out what it says! Yay, Portugal!
