Hugh Jackman’s Return to Mexico

In true superhero style, actor Hugh Jackman recently made good on his promise to return to Mexico after last month’s postponement of the country’s premiere of X-Men Origins: Wolverine due to the outbreak of the H1NI influenza. Praising the perseverance of the nation’s people through the health crisis, the star stated: “Mexico is standing; this makes me happy, Mexico is indestructible just like my character.”

During a south of the border stay which included the honor of a visit with President Felipe Calderon at the official Pinos residence, the star held a press conference at the Four Seasons Hotel before his walk down the red carpet at the National Auditorium in Mexico City, which now more than ever identifies with its nickname of Ciudad de la Esperanza (City of Hope) as it looks forward to the return of travelers: “I wanted to come and show my support to the local businesses and the tourism sector, and to let everyone know, Mexico is a great place to vacation,” the actor stated. “I’ve visited Mexico many times, and its people are incredibly friendly. Mexico is art, culture, architecture, gastronomy, happiness and history, this is a marvelous blend and one has to be crazy not to come here.”
