Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman recently opened up about his heartache of being abandoned by his mother when he was just eight years old.

Jackman, 44, who has forgiven his mother, says he discovered she was struggling. “I never felt — and I know this might sound strange — I never felt that my mum didn’t love me. I’ve spoken about it with her since and I know she was struggling. She was in hospital after I was born suffering from post-natal depression. There wasn’t a support network for her here,” Jackman told Australian Women’s Weekly.
