Hugh Jackman Injured in Botched 'Oprah' StuntHugh Jackman suffered an injury Tuesday, not on the set of an intense action film, but during an Australian taping of 'Oprah.'

The 42-year-old star was set to make a dramatic entrance from the top of the Sydney Opera House, sliding down a cable. Then he failed to stop, smashing into the lighting rig.

"That was so much fun, until the end," joked Jackman, according to a Reuters UK report. He told Oprah the excitement made him hit the brakes a bit late.

"I came down waving to everyone, looking over Sydney Harbour, saw my dad, the kids and you [Winfrey], went to pull the brake and then boing," he said.

An Australian TV news segment -- with video of the incident -- reports Jackman got "a slight cut to his eye." An eyewitness reporter called the incident "unbelievable" and said "he basically face-planted the back wall of the stage."
