(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Actor hugh jackman says he was a ?fearful? child and was particularly scared of the dark.

“the wolverine” star has admitted that when he first became a parent to his adopted children 14-year-old oscar and 8-year-old ava with his wife deborra-lee furness he didn’t have any idea how to be a father and thinks it’s because he was an anxious child who had various fears reports contactmusic.com.

the 45-year-old said: “i was surprised how little my own parenting instincts kicked in. i was a bit of a pain in the first insisting he couldn’t have a bottle straight before bed because i’d read up on it.

“my own mother finally said ‘look you may have read a lot of books but the kid (oscar) hasn’t so put them down.’ but i was quite a fearful kid myself. heights the dark...”

he also admits he even incorporated a fear into his “x-men” character wolverine because he didn’t want to play someone who isn’t capable of feeling scared.
