Hugh JackmanHugh Jackman: 'Wolverine,' Sexiest Man Alive and all-around nice guy ...

It's not every actor who can boast a resume as varied as Hugh Jackman's. The 40-year-old Aussie has embodied one of the most iconic superheroes ever to hit the big screen, won a Tony for playing a gay man, snagged an Emmy for hosting the Tonys (got that?) and earned raves for emceeing this year's Oscars. And, as if that's not enough, he's PEOPLE magazine's reigning Sexiest Man Alive and has biceps larger than the trunks of many oak trees.

As Jackman slashes his way into theaters with his fourth turn as the titular cigar-chomping, metal-clawed, tissue-regenerating badass in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine,' Moviefone looks back on Hugh's greatest (and -- yes, ladies -- sexiest) moments -- from his beginnings on Australian TV to his breakout performance in 'X-Men' and beyond.
