Jackman jumps off London building for charity

'X-Men' star Hugh Jackman turned real-life superhero yesterday, when he abseiled off a London newspaper building for charity.

The actor, who stars in forthcoming prequel 'X Men Origins: Wolverine', jumped off the headquarters of fellow Aussie Rupert Murdoch's News International to raise money for The Sun's 'Help for Heroes' campaign, which aids British soldiers wounded in conflict.

Jackman was joined in the abseil stunt by newspaper bosses Rebekah Wade, Dominic Mohan and Murdoch's media mogul son James.
