HOLLYWOOD—Australian actor Hugh Jackman was stalked and then attacked by a fan holding an electric razor blade over this past weekend. Katherine Thurston, 47, allegedly attacked Jackman while he was at the gym with the intention of shaving some of his beard off to keep as a souvenir for herself. Jackman, who is most known for his role as Wolverine, was initially alarmed by the incident, but later expressed his concern for the woman and hoped she would receive the help she needed.

Thurston allegedly entered Jackman’s gym and made her way to the actor wielding an electric razor blade as she cried and screamed that she loved him before an employee intercepted and had her escorted from the facility. Thurston was later arrested outside the gym.
Jackman was most recently nominated for an Oscar for his work in “Les Miserables” and also won a Golden Globe for best performance by an actor in a comedy or musical motion picture for his role in the picture.
