If your father happened to be Hugh Jackman, would you use that to your advantage in your quest to woo the ladies? It's a question you've probably wondered at least once in your poor history with the opposite (or same) sex, so few can begrudge Oscar Jackman for namedropping his father when chatting up potential admirers.
In a hilarious interview with Entertainment Tonight, the A-list Aussie said, "Once he was on the beach. He was talking to a girl, he was about 13, he was talking to a girl, who I guess to be about 15, and he started walking towards me.
"He came up to me and he started walking ahead of the girl, and he goes, 'Dad, Dad, Dad, she's coming over. I told her you're Wolverine, just go with it.'
"I was like, 'I am the wingman for my 13-year-old boy.'"
But Jackman's days wooing the ladies are now a distant memory, having been married to Deborra Lee Furness since 1996.
"It's been 25 years, I wouldn't even know how to pretend to have game," he joked. "It's been way too long."
Revealing the secrets behind his successful marriage, Jackman revealed that board games often play a prominent role- even if his wife thinks playing them isn't sexy.
"You want to know the secret truth? Make a martini at home and play backgammon," he added.
"If I had it my way, we would be doing jigsaw puzzles, which she says is not sexy, so I have moved up to backgammon. I don't know if it's James Bond, but anyway, it does work."
For Oscar, who is now 18, his days namedropping his Wolverine father appears to be over, with the star himself admitting that he has no plans to take the character further- much to the annoyance of Ryan Reynolds.
On behalf or Ryan Reynolds and your very own son, please don't give Wolverine up, Hugh.
We beg you. For the sake of the meaningless popcorn genre, if anything else.
