One of the biggest stars of the past 15 years, Hugh Jackman hardly needs an introduction... but we're going to give him one anyway.

The Australian-born actor kicked off his career on a native soap "Corelli" (opposite his future wife) before heading stateside to make it in Hollywood. After getting cast in Bryan Singer's "X-Men" as Wolverine, Jackman's career went into overdrive, landing starring roles in action movies, period pieces, and even musicals. This spring, you'll find the versatile actor in Neill Blomkamp's latest sci-fi movie "Chappie" -- sporting a mullet, no less.

From his Tony Award-winning role to his celebrity crush, here are 17 things you (probably) don't know about Hugh Jackman.
