Hungarians have guessed for days why Hugh Jackman visited the capital. The actor posted two photos from Budapest on Instagram: on one of the pictures he was smiling with this colleague, James McAvoy, in the foreground of a hotel; on the other one he delights in the view from the window of Four Seasons Hotel. Since he played in a Lipton ice tea ad in Budapest a couple of years ago, origo.hu thought the Australian actor – who played Wolverine in X-Men – came to do it again, but it seems there is something else behind his visit.
One of the readers of origo.hu informed the portal that the son of a friend of him/her shot a Montblanc ad with Hugh Jackman. The boy allegedly played an engineer. The ad takes places in Hamburg of the 1920s.
The Instagram post of Zsófia Erdély also supports this information, since she photographed a make-up table at the Film Factory of Fót (a small town next to Budapest) and she used hashtags to tell she made a Montblanc ad with Hugh Jackman, origo.hu wrote.
The 47-year-old actor has been the ambassador of Montblanc since January 2014 and he has been promoting the expensive pens since then. In this advertisement Jackman encourages to buy the fountain pen called Meisterstuck (Masterpiece), which has been sold since 1924. This product costs between USD 515 (HUF 148 thousand) and USD 2940 (HUF 850 thousand).
According to origo.hu, the actor was photographed in New York on January 17, so it seems he is no longer in Hungary.
