Affectionate men can also be masculine: Hugh Jackman
Actor Hugh Jackman, who was groomed as a child to conceal his emotions, feels that an affectionate man can also be masculine.
The 44-year-old actor, who grew up in Australia had always believed that real men do not show their feelings. But when he came to Italy he realised that being emotional does not challenge one's masculinity, reported Contactmusic.
"Growing up in Australia, my opinion of masculinity is that you don't show your feelings. A real man doesn't cry. My father is classic English - emotionally shut down -- although in the past 10 years, he seems to have cried at every family reunion," Jackman said.
"The real measure of a man is to be you. It's OK to show emotion. After traveling to Italy I've learnt that I prefer their way. There, men can show emotion; they can be affectionate and still be masculine," he added.
The actor is married to 57-year-old actress Deborra-Lee Furness, with whom he has two children, Oscar and Ava.

"I hope my contribution tonight will make more celebrities want to be part of the cause," said the designer at the fundraiser.

Model-actress Gupta said, "Children are the future of our nation, our world – it is commendable that Pratham is doing such good work for the children that are usually deprived of opportunities."
Proceeds from ticket sales for the event and an exclusive live auction were intended for the Pratham Institute, which focuses on providing young people with the employability skills needed to address India's growing need for skilled manpower.
"The key is access. The need for skilled workers in a rising economy is well known. That is where Pratham hopes to fill the gap," said co-founder and CEO Madhav Chavan.
