Blast from the past: Hugh Jackman reveals he recently caught up with the woman he shared his first kiss with four decades ago
Hugh Jackman has revealed he recently met up with the woman he shared his first kiss with during his school days.
The 52-year-old, who is in hotel quarantine after jetting from New York to Sydney a few days ago, was asked about his first kiss during an Instagram Q&A on Tuesday.
The Oscar winner said he remembered the moment well, and actually ran into the woman ‘just over a year ago’.

‘Do I remember my first kiss? Of course, who doesn’t?’ Hugh said.
‘Sarah Dowsett. I have, by the way, met up with her about a year ago,’ he added. ‘So, apologies Sarah for mentioning this.’
Recalling the details of his first kiss, Hugh said he made the ‘rookie error’ of telling his mates he had made ‘arrangements’ to meet Sarah at the park after school.

‘I walk off, thinking we’re alone, and as we are about to go in for the kiss about 20 of my friends jumped out,’ he reminisced.
‘They chased us through the bush’ he added. ‘And finally, after they left, we had our first kiss.’
‘We met there for a month,’ Hugh added. ‘I went to an all-boys school and she went to an all-girls school and we met there every day for a month.’
Surprise!: Hugh shared details of how twenty of his friends ‘jumped out’ as he was about to share his first kiss with Sarah. He later revealed that he and Sarah finally had the kiss and would meet in the park ‘everyday for a month’
Hugh is in Sydney serving out his mandatory 14 days of hotel quarantine, which is a requirement for all Australians returning from overseas.
For most of the Covid-19 pandemic he has been living in New York City with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness and their children, Oscar and Ava.
They had actually been in Australia when coronavirus was declared a pandemic in March last year, but flew to America days later to keep the family together.
