Hugh Jackman Gives Employees $1.2 Million In Christmas Bonuses: Source

Hugh Jackman isn't only a jacked man, but a GENEROUS man as well!

While it's no surprise Hugh is one of the few gems left in Hollywood, he hasn't let the flawless reputation get to his head, and the actor is not letting us down this holiday season. While his movies continue to entertain us, his actions continue to amaze us — even more than his musical abilities. To be fair, I still don't know if I like listening to Mr. Jackman sing at me in a period piece, but it just keeps happening!

Hugh Jackman is best known for some pretty iconic roles, including "Wolverine" and... um... um....

Oh right — he was also Jean Valjean in the film adaptation of Les Misérables as well as P.T. Barnum in The Greatest Showman!

Yes, these are only his musical movies but they're all I can remember right now.

Now his latest role has him starring as Hugh Jackman, KING of philanthropy aka... king of FAT pockets!

According to Australia’s Courier Mail, via the Daily Mail, it is being reported that an "anonymous shareholder" gifted 900 employees at Australian boot manufacturer R.M. Williams a $1,300 bonus EACH!

That works out to over $1 MILLION dollars!

*The Mail* reported that until this past October, Hugh owned a five-percent share of the Adelaide-based company.

The publication believes that the actor — who sold his shares in the company in October — is the donor.

The publication stated that a spokesperson for R.M. Williams wouldn’t confirm the identity of the secret Santa, but did confirm that "a former R.M. Williams shareholder has provided staff with a cash gift."

It's so secret the actor loves the R.M.'s brand and has always spoken highly of the company and its employees.

"R.M.’s have been a part of my life across the entire journey, from my early stage days to where I am today," Hugh said when he was first appointed global ambassador.

"It's an honour to be a part of the R.M.Williams family and to wear the brand's iconic craftsman boot for the campaign."

What an amazingly generous donation, and truly what we need to see from more celebrities during these turbulent times!
