Actor Hugh Jackman, who plays Wolverine in the X-Men movies, was exercising at Gotham Gym in NYC at about 8am on Saturday, when he encountered a crazed stalker fan.
The 47-year-old blond, wearing khaki pants and a blue hoodie named Kathleen Thurston allegedly burst into the gym, reached into her waistband, and launched a dirty razor at Hugh. And when we say, “dirty”, we mean that the electric razor was filled with her pubic hair.
Hugh managed to “escape” unhurt though. He thought the unhinged woman was grabbing for a gun or a knife and backed away as soon as she made a move for her nether regions.
She then shouted her desperate declaration of love for Hugh, screaming “I love you!” as a staffer dragged her away from him. NYC cops caught up with Kathleen a few blocks away, where she was arrested and taken to a police station. The NYPD Crime Scene Unit recovered the weapon and had to pick the hairs out of it to match them with her DNA. Eww.
It wasn’t her first time stalking Hugh Jackman though. She once showed up at his home in the West Village, where he lives with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness. Hugh has also seen her outside his seven-year-old daughter Ava’s primary school in Manhattan. Gosh. Mad creepy!
Still, the gym incident was a close shave for Hugh, was it not? Ugh.
