Hugh Jackman has admitted that his relationship with 'Les Miserables' co-star Anne Hathaway became so strong he's now started hounding her to appear in more films with him.
The 'Wolverine' star, who staged a race with fellow 'Les Miserables' actor Russell Crowe at 'Les Miserables' Australian premiere, has a lot in common with Anne after going from superhero stardom to the blockbuster musical.
Jackman told The Lansing State Journal: "I’ve always felt simpatico with Anne ever since we met. When we first started to really work together on the Oscars thing, I instantly loved her. I’ve been hounding Annie to do any number of films."

For her part, in the joint interview Anne reciprocated the warm praise given to her, saying: "It’s hard when someone you admire so much says nice things about you. I’ve just admired you. I think I’ve probably known about you longer than you’ve known about me."
So does that mean that the pair could be teaming up in the future? A Catwoman-Wolverine spin-off would sadly be almost impossible due to the pair coming from different comic book stables (DC and Marvel).
However Anne seems so in awe of Hugh that another project could well be on the horizon as she added: "Hugh was always this myth in the Broadway and West End community. And though I never did a show, I did a lot of workshops and readings and things like that.
"Everybody had a Hugh Jackman story. Hugh’s always been this beacon of light out there, someone who could do theater and film."
