The Daily Telegraph reports
A female stalker burst into Hugh Jackman's New York gym and threw an electric razor filled with her pubic hair at him on Friday morning.
The New York Post reported yesterday that the bizarre incident happened during Jackman's morning workout and that the woman, identified as Kathleen Thurston, 47, screamed; "I love you" as a staffer dragged her away from the Aussie star.
The actor was exercising about 8am when the woman slipped past the check-in desk at the tiny gym and made a beeline for the actor, said trainer Mike Castle.
"She was crying," said Castle, who was in the facility's boxing ring.
"I physically removed her from the place, then I called the cops."
Thurston then reached into her waistband and launched the dirty razor at Jackman who, according to police, thought the woman was reaching for a gun or knife and backed away as soon as she made a move for her nether regions.
Police later apprehended the woman nearby.
Forensic officers recovered the razor and had to pick the hairs out of it to match them with her DNA.
Thurston, whose listed address is a Harlem shelter for the mentally ill, was charged with stalking and taken to court, where she was awaiting arraignment last night.
It wasn't the first time Thurston has stalked the 44-year-old Australian actor the sources said, having reportedly once showing up at the New York home he shares with his Australian actress-wife Deborra-Lee Furness.
Jackman told police he also has seen her outside his seven-year-old daughter Ava's primary school in Manhattan.
It's understood Jackman is preparing for X-Men: Days of Future Past and is yet to comment on the incident.
