LATEST: Australian movie star Hugh Jackman has laughed off rumours he is following the Kabbalah and will be joining Madonna on a pilgrimage to Israel this month (SEP04).

American gossip site THE SCOOP reported the X-Men actor and his wife Deborra-lee Furness were new students of the controversial offshoot of Judaism and were travelling to Israeli capital Tel Aviv to celebrate Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur with the MATERIAL GIRL, her husband Guy Ritchie and designer Donna Karan.

Jackman's representative PENNY WILLIAMS says, "It's a load of old rubbish."
