Hugh Jackman's Headline-Making Entrance
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."
