The actor celebrated his 45th Saturday night with a "One Night Only" performance at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre, which drew a crowd of admiring fans, plus big names like Tom Cruise, Octavia Spencer, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds, Olivia Munn and more.
Jackman took the stage with a host of glitter-clad backup dancers, and even carved time out of his performance to serenade wife Deborra-Lee Furness. He also paused for a fun photo op with the crowd, complete with Wolverine claws (of course!).
