Pirates Of The Caribbean star Johnny Depp came a close second in the poll. Dad to Lily-Rose and Jack, these days he admits to being more homebody than Hollywood rebel


27 JUNE 2006

Hugh Jackman is used to reaping awards for his cinematic exploits but it would seem his fans not only admire the 37-year-old's on-screen skills, but his parenting abilities, too. The Aussie actor has been voted best celebrity dad in our online poll, beating other A-list fathers including Will Smith and Tom Cruise to take pole position.

The doting dad won 28 per cent of the votes, narrowly beating Johnny Depp who walked away with 26 per cent of the total count. Hugh, who has two adopted kids Oscar, five, and baby girl Ava, describes parenthood as a "privilege". Despite playing tough, muscle-bound Wolverine in the X-Men trilogy, the actor happily admits that his daughter turns him to "mush".

Child-at-heart Johnny Depp came a close second after showing his devotion to kids Jack and Lily-Rose. Gaining double the number of votes over fourth-placed Bob Geldof, the former Hollywood rebel now admits to being a homebody who loves nothing more than hanging out with his family. Men In Black star Will Smith, who is the perfect father according to wife Jada Pinkett Smith, came third, while fellow actors Antonio Banderas, Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx took fifth, sixth and seventh places.
