Australian actor Hugh Jackman had quite a time in a recent visit to the Land Down Under. The Wolverine actor shared his wild journey to the public, even posting a video of him eating larvae.
According to the Times of India, Hugh Jackman had an adventure in Uluru, part of the Australian wilderness just a few days ago. All of his experiences are documented on his Instagram account.
Among the 46-year old actor’s memorable moments was eating an “aboriginal staple” which is the “witchetty grub.” A video has been uploaded showing Jackman munching on the wood-eating larvae.
Looking comfortably handsome with a brown hat and sunglasses, the Aussie actor slowly chewed on the delicacy and later exclaimed that it is “perfectly cooked.”
“So it’s called Witchitee grub and it’s delicious,” he captioned the clip.
Daily Mail explained that the Witchetty Grub is the larva of a moth which is endemic in Alice Springs and Central Australia. It is also noted that the exotic dish resembles the taste of scrambled eggs when raw, and much more of a chicken when cooked.
It was indeed a gastronomic experience for Hugh.
After his weeklong visit in Uluru, Hugh Jackman posted a message for his 2.6 million followers.
“Homeward bound. Awesome trip and great to catch up with friends I haven’t seen in 26 years. We’ll be back. #THANKYOU,” as he captioned his selfie with Ayers Rock in the background.
The actor later went back to Melbourne to witness a soccer match at the MCG.
On the other hand, reports claimed that the Sydney-born actor will be retiring his Wolverine character after his future standalone film in 2017.
“I felt like it was the right time to do it…[I’ve played Wolverine for] 17 years, I never thought in a million years it would last this long,” noted Women’s Weekly.
Jackman will also be appearing in the new movie “Pan”, set to be released in theaters this October 2015 starring Amanda Seyfried, Garrett Hedlud, Rooney Mara and more.
