Hugh Jackman says that turning down the movie Chicago was his biggest regret.

The Hollywood actor said he was offered the role of Billy Flynn, which was played by Richard Gere in the film starring Catherine Zeta Jones and Renee Zellweger, when he was in his thirties.

Hugh told OK!: "I'd always wanted to do a movie musical and this one came along relatively early in my career."

He added: "I thought I was too young as there was one line when he said 'I've seen it all, kid'.

"A year later it went on to win all the Oscars and I remember thinking that perhaps a little bit of make-up could have worked."

The Australian-born star, 42, voted the sexiest man alive, will be reprising his X-Men role for the fifth time for 2012 movie The Wolverine.
