Hugh Jackman had a pleasant surprise on the red carpet at the Zurich Film Festival in Switzerland this week (begs30Sep13) when he learned one of the reporters interviewing him was a former student of his.

The movie star was Rollo Ross' sports teacher at a school in London and Jackman found it difficult to concentrate on his questions about new film Prisoners when he recognised him.

He said, "I'm sorry mate, we go way back. I used to teach you in high school... and I want to know how your physical education is progressing, it's very important to me."

Jackman then grabbed the Tv camera and turned it on his interviewer.

He added, "How is your education going? Did I set you up for life?"
