And according to a mummy blogger who is staying in the same building, Hugh specifically asked staff for no special treatment.

Humble Hugh! Aussie actor Hugh Jackman is currently undertaking a mandatory stay at a quarantine hotel, but according to a mum blogger in the same vicinity, the Hollywood actor has asked to for no special treatment.

The blogger wrote on Wednesday: ‘Little Hugh update: The nurse who called this morning said he is good and he has been great and insisted from the start he is treated the same and everyone else.’ 

Hugh surprised fans on Sunday by announcing on Instagram he had flown to Sydney from NYC. He hadn’t indicated previously that he planned to travel to Australia.

Hugh moved to New York with his wife, Deborra-Lee Furness, and their children in 2008, and they own a swanky apartment in the West Village.

He had initially been in Melbourne when Covid-19 was declared a pandemic in March 2020, but flew to the U.S. to keep his family together.

Last year, Hugh revealed he was homesick for Australia after NYC’s lengthy coronavirus lockdown, which perhaps explains his decision to return Down Under.
