Jackman: R-Patz's secret talent

Hugh Jackman has revealed Robert Pattinson has a hidden gift - for belting out karaoke hits.

The pair partied together after meeting in Japan, and the Twilight heartthrob seized the opportunity to show off his vocal talents.

"We went out to this Japanese karaoke bar, and we invited Rob, and he came. And it was so much fun. Man, he's got a voice. Really soulful," Hugh told MTV news.

The Wolverine star - who was also accompanied on the night out by director Baz Luhrmann - explained: "The first thing you do is you get inside this room, the doors are closed, and there's, like, eight of you. So it feels a little weird.

"And then all of a sudden, they open, and they bring in these boxes, which are basically (full of) dress-up (clothes), and it's all girls' clothes. I was a schoolgirl, Baz got dressed up, and Rob did not. He was too cool for school."

Hugh, who was in the country to publicise Baz's film Australia, admitted he wasn't expecting R-Patz to be so much fun when they first met on the flight to Japan.

"He was promoting (Twilight) and I didn't talk to him at all on the flight, because he's this really tall guy with a hood over his head literally, and every time I'd go to the bathroom, I'd be like, 'Man, that guy takes some serious sleeping pills,' because this was him (slumps over) the whole time."
