Los Angeles: Actor Hugh Jackman is feeling nervous ahead of hosting this year`s Tony Awards in New York City.
The 45-year-old actor `Les Miserables` star, who will take centre stage at the annual awards ceremony at New York City`s Radio City Music Hall, is reportedly excited to present the prestigious event but is putting a lot of pressure on himself to perform.
"There`s always a little bit of pressure, but mostly put on myself. It couldn`t be a nicer, more welcoming crowd and I can say that from experience, because the first time I came here, I actually had never been on Broadway and I said, `Guys, I can`t do that`," Jackman said.
"And they said, `Don`t worry, they`ll be very welcoming.` I didn`t really believe it until I walked out and I was amazed. So, I`m excited. I`ve got a lot of surprises in store," he said.
Other stars set to attend the award show include Neil Patrick Harris, Chris O`Dowd and Bryan Cranston who are all hoping to be praised for their recent performances on Broadway.
