It was the zip line heard around the world. When Oprah and 300 Ultimate Viewers went on their adventure Down Under
, Aussie actor Hugh Jackman was set to soar over the crowd at the Sydney Opera House—but, despite a flawless rehearsal, things didn't go as planned.
"The brake was stopping so quick [in rehearsal]," he recalled. "So, I'm coming down, and I see everyone ... I see you, and I went, 'Probably time to brake now. Oh, it's not going to stop.' Bang! Totally my bad."
