10 of 20: Hugh Jackman made headlines in 2003 when he played ostentatious and openly gay songwriter/singer Peter Allen in 'The Boy From Oz' on Broadway.

Jackman's performance earned him a Tony nomination.

Jackman joked with People magazine that to prepare for the role, 'I just have a pina colada when I get to the theater and, bang, that's it. That's all you need to bring out your inner Peter Allen.'
