Hugh Jackman “eats and eats” over Christmas.

The Les Miserables actor loves spending the festive season with wife Deborra-Lee Furness and their children Oscar, 12, and seven-year-old Ava, and the family go all out with their celebrations.

He said: “I'm going to be in New York with my wife and the kids. We really go for it at Christmas, we do everything.

“We'll go to Midnight Mass the night before then have stockings and presents and just eat and eat.

“I'll be working on press for Les Miserables right up until Christmas, so I can't wait to spend time with family and friends.”

Though he loves Christmas, the 44-year-old star admits his gift buying isn't always very successful.

He recalled: “I once gave my sister deodorant. It was by accident though, I thought it was perfume!” - Bang Showbiz
