Actor Hugh Jackman had quite an awkward moment in Japan recently. He faced this embarrassing situation when he stripped down in a spa to relax, but it took him sometime to realise that being completely nude in a spa is not an usual thing in Japan.
He was in Japan shooting for his upcoming movie The Wolverine. The 44-year-old Australian actor decided to take some time off to unwind and went to a spa. "I was getting so hot and I'm using the towel they gave me to dip into the cold water and put it on my head, and I was getting very strange looks from everybody," said Jackman.
Until a local resident pointed out the problem, the actor did not realise what was wrong. He felt odd that people looked at him strangely. "I was feeling uncomfortable and finally this guy in the tub grunts and points to my head and then grunts and points to my private parts," Jackman said. "Finally, I realised the towel was meant to be covering my privates. I'd spent about an hour just waltzing around this place with this thing in one hand and a beer in my other," he added.
The Wolverine is directed by James Mangold. This is the sixth part in the X-Men series and it is set in Japan. The film deals with Wolverine's background and tragic romance.
