Aussie Hollywood star Hugh Jackman regrets not buying into Norwich City

Aussie Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman admits he regrets passing up on the chance to invest in Norwich City.

Jackman has previously revealed how he visited her a number of times as a child and made a trip to Carrow Road when he was 16.

But, speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, he revealed how he had been approached about investing in the Canaries, before their rapid rise through the leagues and back into the Premiership.

He said: "I got a letter about a year ago saying, 'Being such a huge Norwich City fan would I like to be a celebrity investor?', like a small part-owner.

"I said, 'I think that's a little stretched, I've been to Carrow Road once, my mum took me', so I decided not to invest.

"And since then they're on a run, so what do I know?"

After last month's 2-1 Carrow Road win over Sunderland, Jackman tweeted: "congratulations norwich city...first home win of this EPL season...many more to come!"
