Hugh Jackman: Splish Splash!

Hugh Jackman took his kids Oscar and Ava for a swim at a public pool in Sydney, Australia, on Sunday.

If there’s one family activity Hugh loves, it’s swimming.

Nary a day goes by that Mr. Jackman isn’t splashing about in the water and showing off that chiseled chest.

He might not have time for the watery fun in the coming months, though.

Jackman, 40, stars with Nicole Kidman, 41, in Baz Luhrmann’s epic Australia, which comes out here in the U.S. on November 26.

If the movie’s as big as it looks, this could be a the-next-Titanic-situation, and Hugh (sure to be beloved as Wolverine in the upcoming X-Men: Origins) could be in even greater demand.

It would be a shame if those swimmies and boogie boards start collecting dust.
