Hugh Jackman

ROLE: Jean Val Jean
MOVIE: Les Miserables (2012)
WHY WE LOVE HIM: Hugh Jackman's character of Jean Val Jean lived his entire life on his own and spent most of it either locked up or on the run from the law, but that all changed when Cosette came into his life. When her mother, the tragic Fantine died, Jean became a father for the first time, and he would do anything for his daughter, even protecting her from the truth of his real life.
