While in Japan and shooting his upcoming movie The Wolverine, Hugh Jackman committed a small social faux pas. He would relax in the hot springs, or "onsen", during some of the breaks and use the small towel he was given to regulate his body temperature by soaking it in cold water and placing it on his head while he bathed. After getting some awkward stares, one of the fellow bathers pointed out what the towel was supposed to be used for:
"I was feeling uncomfortable and finally this guy in the tub grunts and points to my head and then grunts and points to my private parts. Finally I realised the towel was meant to be covering my privates and I'd spent about an hour just waltzing around this place with this thing in one hand and a beer in my other hand!"
Sadly, no pictures were taken to document the event.
