It wasn’t until much later that the mother and son got back together, and Jackman has since shared that he forgave her and they formed a special bond.

“I only recently started doing this. It’s helped me a lot,” he told Who Magazine of the therapy.

“We all need a village.”

“You need a friend to dump everything on — having someone really smart who’s a little bit removed from your world can be really helpful.”

“[It’s about]understanding my past and how it unconsciously affects my thinking — really understanding some of the patterns I’ve unconsciously just been repeating.

“And, most importantly, (it) helps me relate more to the people I love in my life and really understand them and live in their shoes and be clear about seeing them.” .”

When Grace left, the actor stayed in Sydney with his father Christopher, brothers Ian and Ralph and sisters Zoe and Sonia.

After his parents divorced, his sisters moved to England to live with their mother.

In 2018, Jackman told the publication his mother’s departure was “traumatic.”

“I thought she would probably come back. And then it kind of went back and forth.”

The Greatest Showman star said it was more than four years before he realized at the age of “12 or 13” that his mother wasn’t coming back.

Mother and son reconciled years later.

Speaking to The Sun in 2011, Hugh said: “As I got older I got an understanding of why my mum left. We’ve definitely made our peace, which is important.”

Jackman’s father Christopher died on September 5, 2021.

“In the early hours of Father’s Day (AU) my father passed away peacefully,” he said at the time.

“And while there is deep sadness, I am filled with such gratitude and love.

“My father was, in a word, extraordinary. He devoted his life to his family, his work and his faith. I pray he is at peace with God now.”

The late Jackman battled Alzheimer’s disease for 12 years before his death.

It was then that his son decided to continue shooting his film The Son.

“My dad never missed a day at work,” Jackman told Variety of his decision to keep working.

“I could feel him. I knew if he could talk to me he would say, ‘You have to go to work! What are you talking about?’ I felt his presence on set.”
