The action star opted to arrive at the Sydney Oprah House by air instead of simply walking onto the stage.

Before he dropped in, Winfrey gave him a warm welcome: “I could not be in Australia without a visit from on my favorite Aussies, The Boy From Oz!”

“Hugh Jackman, come on down!” Oprah screamed, and then quickly yelped “No!” as he flew down too fast down the line that stretched from the iconic Harbour Bridge onto the stage of the Opera House and got his leg stuck in the lighting rig, forcing a piece of debris into his eye.

“Are you OK?” Winfrey asked, sounding like a concerned mother.

“We need to stop for a second, Hugh hurt his eye.”

However Jackman was already laughing about the incident even as he dangled precariously above the stage in front of an audience of 6,000 people.

“It’s good to be here! Bono was meant to do this but they couldn’t afford the insurance,” Jackman joked, then realizing he’d cut his face, he added, “I think I may need a tissue.”

“That’s an entrance!” Winfrey said, as she rushed to Jackman’s aid before he left the stage to be treated by paramedics.

“It’s going to swell,” she said as she kissed his injured face better.
