Australians dominate Hollywood: Hugh Jackman

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Sydney-born actor Hugh Jackman says Australians dominate Hollywood, and he is proud of it.

The 44-year-old actor believes that the Australian accent is much sought after in filmmaking because moviemakers love Aussie stars, reports

"We dominate! We're the majority now! It's always good to be an Aussie wherever you are ... it's because Hollywood accepts us," said Jackman.

"Aussies over there...they just love them, they love the accent, they want to know everything about you, they really dig the Aussies," he added.

Other prominent Australians in Hollywood include Russell Crowe, Eric Bana and Naomi Watts.
