New Video: Hugh Jackman's Daring Zipline Entrance on Oprah Goes Horribly Wrong

Crashed.

Last December, 'X-Men' action hero Hugh Jackman was all set to make a grand entrance onto the set of the Oprah Winfrey show, which was being taped at Australia's Sydney Opera House that day.

Recalling that day, Oprah said, "I was literally holding my breath from the moment I started speaking to him from on top of the Sydney Opera House," which is where Jackman was stationed. His plan was to fly onto the stage via zipline. But the Australian actor's stunt didn't quite go as planned. As you can see in the clip below, as Jackman zoomed down the breathtakingly high zipline, everything was going fine--he was flying past the audience, waving to them with a smile--and then he....crashed straight into the lighting rig of the set. Here he is tangled up, with blood on the right side of his face.

On her show 'Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes,' which will air on her OWN TV network on Sunday, Oprah finally tells the story of what actually happened the day Jackman crashed into the set's lighting fixture. "He turned around," after crashing into lights, "and I saw that he was bleeding," Oprah said. Watch the crash here:
