Hugh Jackman Recognizes Former Student On Red Carpet

Posted: Updated:

An elephant never forgets, and apparently neither does Hugh Jackman.

On the red (well, green to be precise) carpet at the Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland, Rollo Ross got a quick interview with Golden Icon Award winner Hugh Jackman. The interview didn't go quite as Ross expected when Jackman turned the tables.

Jackman called Ross out for not recognizing him as his former physical education teacher at Uppingham School in Rutland. Seems that Jackman has a better memory than most, however, since he was a teaching assistant there a whopping 26 years ago, according to BBC.

Jackman joked around with his former student, saying, "How is your education going? Did I set you up for life?"

It may not have been PE that got Ross where he is today, but Ross is currently an entertainment industry expert, working for international news agencies, and is also a former blogger for The Huffington Post!
