Hugh Jackman to Oprah:

Eye Eye, Mate!

12/14/2010 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hugh Jackman tried to impress the crowd while filming Oprah Winfrey's Australian show in Sydney today -- but instead injured himself when his stunt went awry.


Zooming onto the stage on a zip-line, Hugh hit the brakes too late, crashed into a lighting rig and injured his right eye.

Oprah broke filming so paramedics could check him out -- and he then continued the segment with a bandage under his eye.

Hugh, you can't be doing that Wolverine **** in real life, dude. You don't really have an Adamantium exoskeleton and superhuman healing capabilities...

So, in looking at those photos, a host of Australians who LONG AGO moved to the United States all flew back to Oz just to be on her show? Couldn't they have just gone to Chicago and saved everyone a ton of money?

He's lucky Oprah doesn't eat him, and not in a nice way.

First off, he's lucky he didn't lose an eye or worse. Secondly, say you think that's the coolest idea EVER to have the actor come via zipline... make it monkey proof so no matter what he doesn't get injured. Have a huge thing of foam rubber to hit at the end. And for chris'sake make sure there isn't anything like a damn lighting rig in the way. Stupid stagehands.

OH NO!! someone pre-empted Oprah and took away the attention that was susposed to be on her on her show! ! Tell me it isn't so ! !
It also interupted her getting her make up re-done. How can that be ? ?
How inconsiderate of Hugh Jackman to get hurt, although it did get her show to be news-worthy, so I guess it was worth it, except to Hugh...I hope he will be alright, she is such a news hog and not worth watching. Needless to say I won't be watching her new channel.. JUST SAYING.....

teebag.. I totally agree, you would think with Oprah's money, she could make foolproof. Maybe have some practicing first with stunt people or something. Thank god Hugh wasn't wasn't injured seriously, at least I hope his eye will be ok :)
