Hugh Jackman’s son is not comfortable with his actor’s fame.

The X-Men actor admits 12-year-old Oscar feels uncomfortable when his famous father gets stopped on the street.

“My son is 12 and he just wants me to be dad. He doesn’t want me to be famous. He doesn’t like when people come up to me on the street. He would much prefer if nobody knew who I was,” Jackman told Parade magazine.

However, Jackman reveals Oscar occasionally uses his dad’s stardom to his advantage, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

“Although, I’ve seen him in social situations when he didn’t think I was listening, and he once said to a girl, ‘Well, my dad is Wolverine.’ So when it came to try to talk to this girl, apparently it came in handy!”
