Noted heterosexual Hugh Jackman upset some locals at a sacred hot springs in Japan by “accidentally” neglecting to cover up his little X-man.
The Aussie hunk was taking a break from filming The Wolverine at the hot springs, where he mistook the horrified looks of spectators for some sort of cultural disconnect…or something. News.com.au reports:
“The place is separated male and female and they hand you a towel, a small washcloth and there are eight different types of tubs with heats of different temperatures…I’m 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.
“This was at the base of Mount Fuji and I was the only white person there. I thought, ‘Maybe this isn’t cool and I’m not allowed to be there’. 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. Finally I realized the towel was meant to be covering my privates and I’d spent about an hour just waltzing around this place with this thing in one hand and a beer in my other hand!”
Well if you’re going to be walking around with your “thing” in one hand, you should probably expect someone to take offense. Or, if you’re fellow noted heterosexual steam-lover John Travolta, at least take a knee.
