London: Hugh Jackman, who took some time off before getting busy with films again, headed to Bondi beach with his family to show off his football skills.

The ‘X-Men’ star played some Aussie Rules football on the beach with his two children 12-year-old Oscar and 7-year-old Ava.

The 43-year-old actor had kept his famously muscular body covered in a black polo shirt and matching shorts, a leading daily has reported.

With his eyes hidden behind a pair of sunglasses, the 6ft 2inch star looked effortlessly cool as he ran up and down the beach.

Jackman’s 56-year-old wife Deborra-Lee Furness had worn a casual all-black ensemble and carried a red boogie board with her.

The actor’s stay in his hometown of Sydney is not purely for play as he will begin filming ‘X-Men Origins’ sequel ‘The Wolverine’ at Fox Studios, next week.
