  • Hugh Jackman has once again shown us that he isn’t just a superhero on the big screen.

    The actor surprised a 9-year-old “Wolverine” superfan named Domenic, who has cystic fibrosis, while he was on the Australian radio program “The Kyle and Jackie O Show.”

    The hosts told Domenic he would be able to talk to Jackman on the phone — but he didn’t know the action star was actually hiding in another room.

    “Hey Hugh, we’ve got Domenic here, who is one of your biggest fans,” Jackie told Jackman on the phone. “He’s a young boy who thinks ‘Wolverine’ is just awesome, and that you’re great.”

    “What’s your favorite ‘Wolverine’ action pose?" Domenic asked Jackman over the phone.

    “My favorite action pose? Well, he’s got a lot of cool poses,” Jackman replied. “Hang on one sec, mate, ’cause I’m going to find a really cool way to show you.”

    The 46-year-old actor ran into the room and struck a “Wolverine” pose before giving Domenic a really big hug.

  • This magician may have performed his greatest trick ever, turning a single woman into an engaged one.

    A London magician took to the stage to propose to his girlfriend with a trick involving alphabet soup and a piece of string. Wait, it gets better.

    After swallowing the string and soup, Neil Henry invited his girlfriend, Charlie Gardner, onstage to help him finish the trick. As she was standing next to him, he pulled the string out of his mouth with pieces of noodle on it. The letters spelled out “MARRY ME.”

    Once he cleared his mouth of both the alphabet noodles and the string, Neil finished his proposal. He got down on one knee and pulled out a ring, with a small fire trick first. Charlie blurted out "yes" more than a few times.

    Charlie had no idea that Neil was about to pop the question onstage. She told the Scottish Daily Record, “At first I thought he was going to spell out Marmite with the letters."

    Congratulations to the happy couple!

  • Taylor Swift has invited more than a few of her famous friends on stage with her during the L.A. leg of her 1989 tour.

    Guests have included Kobe Bryant, Chris Rock, Uzo Aduba, Mary J. Blige and John Legend, to name a few.  But T-Swift may have saved the best for last.

    On the final night of her tour, she introduced a performer known as Phoebe Buffay, whose previous experience was mainly singing in coffeehouses. Shortly after, Lisa Kudrow walked onto the stage and joined Swift in a rendition of “Smelly Cat.”

    That’s right: The duo performed the iconic song that Kudrow’s character, Phoebe, made famous on “Friends.”

    Kudrow wasn’t the only special guest that night — Swift also welcomed Justin Timberlake and Selena Gomez to the stage. What a way to end a sold-out five-night run at Staples Center!

    Taylor Swift, making our dreams come true since 1989.

  • Some may say that three days of prep work, a full day of filming and 137 attempts to get a trick-shot dunk right is a little excessive, but that’s certainly not the case for YouTuber Ryan Higa and his squad.

    Higa and his friends created a 90-second Rube Goldberg trick shot, and based on the video Higa posted on YouTube, it’s pretty impressive.

    The trick shot involves ramps, ninjas, baskets handed from ceiling fans, an air mattress belly flop and much more. But in the end, they just miss dunking the ball.

    The video is going viral and has over 2.3 million views after less than a week online.

    All right everyone, try to top that!

  • For those of us who can’t travel to the U.K. to visit provocative artist Banksy’s pop-up bemusement park, Dismaland, there is now a trailer, and the park is just as dark and twisted as you would expect.

    The trailer follows classic Disneyland ads, portraying a typical-looking family, as the eerie voice says: “Is there something missing in your life? Do you need to get out more? Then stop what you’re doing, and come to the happiest place on Earth. This is a theme park like no other. Dismaland — a place where all your dreams come true. So, what are you waiting for?”

    As you can imagine, any trip to a place called Dismaland doesn’t end well. The video follows the family visiting the bemusement park and going around to all the dark and twisted attractions. The kids love it, but the parents leave the park weeping.

    The video ends on an even more startling twist, with an implied car crash for the family.

    The Dismaland website describes the park as a “festival of amusements and entry-level
