Taron Egerton’s Thirst for Hugh Jackman is Heartbreakingly Real


Imagine being Taron Egerton for a minute– put aside the physical perfection and enviable acting prowess. Just imagine yourself being a young kid cast in the movie role of a lifetime, and having to be in close proximity to Hugh Jackman every day.

Every. Goddamn. Day.

Think about it–that creased brow, that impossible physique, the nattering on about the superiority of Australian coffee. It can just get to be too much. Poor kid. Our heart goes out to him. Especially after seeing this GIF of him at a premiere practically licking the Wolverine actor head to toe with his eyes.


I’ve never seen anyone say choke me daddy with their eyes.

It’s just heartbreaking. I mean seriously, the poor, poor guy. It makes us want to sing “The Greatest Love” below his window, except replacing ‘love’ with ‘thirst’ to make it more accurate.

Our heart goes out to you this fine St. Patty’s day, Taron. Keep the thirst alive.
