Hugh Jackman hit in groin with cricket ball [Video]

By Liz Kelly

Fresh from him zipline crash into Oprah's Sydney, Australia set Hugh Jackman took a direct hit to the groin from a cricket ball on Sunday, as seen on Australian TV:

Jackman apparently took the field during a commercial break to have a bit of fun when Australian team member Shane Warne lobbed the unfortunate shot. According to Jam! Showbiz, Jackman was able to laugh off the injury:

Jackman said, "I didn't pick it,' while Warne cheekily replied, "Don't rub 'em, count 'em."

Good advice. We're also thinking maybe Wolverine should take a break from stunts until his astrological chart -- which is clearly in some kind of disarray -- clears up.

Oh, and in case you missed it, here's Jackman ziplining into Oprah's set earlier this month:

Update: Per Us Weekly, not only is Shane Warne lethal on a cricket court, he's also apparently the very player recently linked to Elizabeth Hurley. -- 2:45 p.m. ET

I think there's some kind of a message going to Jackman that he's not getting.

Lay low, stay away from ... everything.

so what? Lay low, stay away from ... everything. My boyfriend thinks the same as I do. He is eight years older than me, lol. We met online at agegaplove``.com a nice and free place for younger women and older men, or older women and younger men, to interact with each other. Maybe you wanna check out or tell your friends.
