Hugh Jackman is the latest Hollywood star to dabble in the "Gangnam Style" of dance. The star, who is currently filming the next installment in "The Wolverine" franchise, took a private lesson from Korean star Psy. The leader of the viral dance craze surprised Hugh on the movie set in order to give him the lesson, which came just a few days after this 44th birthday. The actor recounted the event on Twitter, writing "Slicing gangnam style!!!! Great to meet @psy_oppa who visited set yesterday." He also posted a picture of the two, complete with matching sets of Wolverine claws. In case you don't know, this dance style has been a hot subject in the celebrity community. Here are a few other stars to experiment with Psy's new dance.
Ellen DeGeneres and Britney Spears
This past September, Psy visited "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" to provide a lesson for the host and her main guest, Britney Spears. Shortly before coming on Ellen's show, Britney had shared her interest in "Gangnam Style" on Twitter. She posted, "I am LOVING this video - so fun! Thinking that I should possibly learn the choreography. Anybody wanna teach me?! "Apparently, Ellen decided to make Brit's dream come true. Psy arrived on set, and the three started dancing for all to see.
The "Jersey Shore" star has always had a great sense of humor, and that was evident when he shared a video of himself performing the inspired dance. Vinny posted the video on YouTube last month, and also shared a Twitter pic of himself and Psy. Like Britney, it's clear that Vinny is a major fan of the rapper. Now that "Jersey Shore" is in its final season, perhaps Vinny can think about a new career that allows him to expand his dancing skills.
Mario LopezPsy isn't just showing his dance style on "Ellen." He also dropped by the set of "Extra" to meet with Mario and co-host Maria Menounos. While he was there, Mario revealed an organized flash mob that was ready to do the dance. Later, the former "Saved by the Bell" star posted a picture on Twitter that praised both Psy and the dance. The large crowd is proof enough that "Gangnam Style" isn't going away any time soon.
