The X-Men star made a guest appearance on Stephen Colbert’s Late Night Show to promote his upcoming film The Front Runner.
As Jackman stepped onstage he spotted the Aussie radio giant and his girlfriend Rebecca Harding sitting in audience, and then proceeded to give the couple a hug. Following Jackman’s lead, a baffled Stephen Colbert also greeted the pair.
When Jackman and Colbert sat down, the actor then went on to explain who Lee was, noting that he was “almost as famous” in Australia as Colbert is in America.
“Andy sent me an email today and I hadn’t replied and I’m like, ‘Dude, you had to turn up to the show?’… I’m going to reply to you any second.”
"So, Andy in Australia is almost as famous as famous as you are," Jackman said adding, "No seriously -- he and Hamish -- we got some Aussies here..."
Lee took to Instagram yesterday to share the moment, admitting that he and Harding were unaware of Jackman’s appearance on the show.
