I think Hugh Jackman was really with me-he was in my house because our kids went to the same school, and we sat on my patio. . . and I said, ‘These superhero things are going to be interesting,’ and he said, ‘Yeah!’ And I was like, ‘You know, I think one day I’ll get a chance to play one of the bad guys, and I think I can ruin it.’ He said, ‘Yes, I think you can too.’ “
